The show follows Masterchef’s Gregg Wallace & award winning greengrocer Chris Bavin on a mission to prove that it is possible for families to save moneyon their food budget without scrimping on taste and nutrition.  They hope that by analysing the shopping habits of UK families, they can help to show where we can source the best and cheapest quality food.
Eating healthily and to a budget is something we feel affects most of us and we’d be really grateful if you could help us spread the word about the new series amongst your families at your school and staff by perhaps circulating a flyer or sharing something in a newsletter. I have attached a copy of the flyer to this email and we can also post paper copies out to the school if you would prefer. 
If you think you know any families/households that may be interested in appearing on the programme, please do pass on our details.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,
The Eat Well For Less Team

Information regarding inclusive local activities

I wanted to share my local group that may be of interest to children who attend your school plus their parents or carers.
I have set up a closed Facebook group, this is where people can post asking for help, advice or support but also to get anything off their chest.
My son is 7 years old Autistic and ADHD and the last easter break i found so isolating, we can’t do anything mainstream which means not only does Jack miss out but his younger brother (no delays no concerns just a typical 4 year old). Its a shame for Danny he can’t do soft play on a weekend as we can’t take Jack as he just wont cope with the noise or the crowds.
I have set up many activities and I am liasing with the Inclusion Team at Aberdeen City Council. So far this is the activities i have set up:
Weekly weekend lego club – Starts Saturday 20th May 1-2pm – Beacon Community Centre Bucksburn (upstairs in community wing, lift available if required) £1 entry fee
Monthly Sit and Chat coffee session – Starts 28th May 1-3pm – Beacon Community Centre Bucksburn (upstairs in cafe in communit wing, lift available if required
Trip to the beach – Collieston Beach 11am – Parents and carers getting out the house mixing with others who ‘get it’ – Suitable for all including buggies and wheelchairs
Family Picnic – 8th July 11am – Banchory King George V Park
Walk through the forest – Countesswells Forest 10.30am – meet in car park and go for a gentle walk, nice flat accessable for all
Autism Friendly trip to the cinema – 30th July – time and movie tbc – this titled as ‘autism friendly’ but it is suitable for all those with additonal needs
Additonal Support Needs Summer BBQ – 26th August 11-3pm – Beacon Community Centre – £1 entry fee includes:
Bouncy Castle
Face Painting
Glitter Tattoo’s
Meet Elsa and Batman (Love Rara)
Games and prizes
Outdoor play
Quiet indoor space if anyone needs some quiet time
Sensory play
All of the above is included with the £1 entry fee the only additonal cost is food and drink.
Life can be very isolating for those with additonal needs, their parent and carer but also siblings and even cousins, this is why i set up this group to try and help others same as me.
Many Thanks
Jo Gowie

Diving Talent ID programme in Aberdeen

Article 29 – Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents and abilities to the fullest.

A few weeks ago a group of diving coaches from Sport Aberdeen came into our school to work with P2-7 pupils during their P.E. time.  They were part of a Talent ID group looking to identify potential diving talent in the children.  They participated in a variety of land based activities and from this some of the students were selected to go on to the next phase of the selection process.   The coaches went to 10 schools in total and saw 2000 children during this time and from this 197 were selected for phase 2.  Phase 2 for Ferryhill took place on Sunday the 12th.  Morgan, Amelie, Oskar, Hannah, Joshua, Maisy and Edel performed very well in the next phase with some of them bravely jumping off the 5m diving boards.  This programme has been successful in other areas in the country and they have even had some students participating in the 2012 and 2016 Olympic games.  We want to congratulate our pupils for getting this far and will wait to hear if they will be part of the final 40 to be selected to take part in the diving training program.

UNCRC Article 31 – Children have the right to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities

Last week the infant department were treated to a visit by Kidsgloves Puppet Company. They enjoyed watching several mini shows based on well known fairy tales and fables.  Today some of the children have been writing about the stories they saw.  It was a lovely treat enjoyed by all.
