We made lots of items and it only took two days to make everything. We made tin cans, star mirrors, taguls and finger puppet nativities. The star mirrors are £1:50 there are 7 of them. The nativity is £2:00 and there is 5 sets of them. The taguls are £1:00 and there are 8 of them. The star mirrors are £1:50 and there are 7 of them. The tin cans are 50p and there 6 of them.  We had to create balance sheets and work out unit costs to be able to price our items, to make sure we make a profit.

Crazy Claus Christmas fair

photo-on-08-12-2016-at-14-48We have been making things for the Christmas fair. We have made tiles with a map of Islay on it, we have made rainbow coloured Christmas baubles with sparkles and we have made snow globes. We have made a book on an app called book creator on the ipads with the Christmas fair notes on it. We also designed a cupcake for the cupcake competition. We made crunchie flavoured red cupcakes with a Santa hat on them. We have been learning how to make a balance sheet and how to make a chart on excel and we also did market research for the project.  I hope everything sells really well.

Beach Clean

cyhokqkxuaax_kkOn Friday 25th November, Port Ellen Primary School went down to the Co-op beach and did a beach clean with Re-Jig.  They collected 32 bags of litter and made an astonishing £300 pounds that will help the school.  They found litter that was covered in ice, which they found very interesting and made it difficult to dig up.  As you probably know Port Ellen Primary has citizenship groups. Doing the beach clean was helping our community which is part of being a good citizen.
