We are lucky enough to have a lot of costumes that we need in school for the nativity, however we are asking if you have any of the following at home (please do not buy anything new) for your child to wear, it would be appreciated if you could send them in with the following items.
Angels and Stars: White tights, white leggings or white socks
Cows, Horses and Shrews: Blue, black or brown t-shirts (We are planning on using some black face paint for the shrews, please contact the school if you DO NOT wish us to use face paint on your child)
Shepherds: Tea towel and dressing gown
Narrators: Christmas jumpers and anything Christmassy (boppers, tinsel etc)
As we come to the end of term, we will be collecting in home reading books this week. Please ensure all books are returned to school. We hope you have enjoyed reading our new books and we will issue more home reading books again in January.
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
We will celebrate our Harvest Service on Wednesday 9 October at 9.30 a.m. within the school. We look forward to seeing you. Donations of tins/biscuits/dried foods etc. will be gratefully received and then donated to a local food bank.
P3/4 and P4/5 joined up for a fun-filled morning of play on Friday. The children chose a range of activities including Twister, construction, basketball, gymnastics, art and football to name a few. Everyone had a great time marking the longest day of the year.
