Intergenerational Committee walk around Catrine

Today the intergenerational committee walked around Catrine to put up our posters advertising our Over 50s Games Morning.  We went around shops and businesses asking them if we could display our posters.  Look out for our posters when you are out shopping in Catrine.

Our Games morning is Wednesday 5th March from 10.30 til 12pm at Catrine Primary School.  Please feel free to bring along your own board games to play.

Intergenerational Group Walk Around Catrine

Our committee groups meet again tomorrow morning and pupils who are part of the above group will be going a walk around Catrine.  If your child is in this group please ensure  that they are wearing a suitable jacket and footwear.  No permission form is needed as this walk is covered by the Walk Around Catrine form completed at the beginning of the year.

P3/4 Class Talk Homework Project

Title: My Polar Animal

Pupils have been given a project to prepare and give a short 5 minute talk about a polar animal of their choice. Some ideas might be polar bears, penguins, whales or seals. You can use the internet or books to find out facts or pictures/drawings about your animal. You can decide how you would like to present the talk ie PowerPoint (saved on GLOW or pendrive), poster, photographs, bringing in items.

Children should practise their talk at home in order to be able to fluently talk to the class, they might want to use notes on paper to help them remember their talk.

Talks should be ready to be heard for Monday 4th November
