Save the Children Resource Pack

During school closure, Save the Children have developed a home learning pack (attached) which is aimed at parents with a child aged 3-6 years old.  It contains information on: how to talk about the Coronavirus to children; play based learning activities for children; and information for parents.  It is hoped that this resource will support parents / carers to engage positively with their children and reduce stress levels within the family.

Joke Competition

East Renfrewshire Culture & Leisure Trust are running a joke competition for kids in schools and libraries coming up next week.

James Campbell, children’s comedian and author, is coming to Eastwood Park Theatre at the end of March with his stand up show, ?The Hilariously Funny World Of?.?, so for the second year in a row, we want local children in East Renfrewshire to join in with the comedy and tell us the funniest joke they can think of!

If you would like to enter the competition, please collect a form from the school office – the deadline for entries to be returned to the office is Monday 2nd March at 3pm.

Oor Wullie Photo Competition

To celebrate the end of the Oor Wullie Big Bucket Trail, we have been invited to take some pupils from Eaglesham Primary School to the Big Farewell Event at the SECC on Friday 13th September 2019. This will give a group of pupils the chance to see all 60 large sculptures, 143 smaller sculptures (including ours!), take part in a variety of entertainment and receive free goodies on the day. Since places are limited, we have decided to run a competition. If you took part in the Big Bucket Trail and have any photos of yourself with an Oor Wullie statue, please email the photos into the school (SchoolMail@eaglesham.e-renfrew.sch.uk) with the name of the child and class. Entrant names will be chosen at random on Friday 6th September 2019. All photos will be used at assembly and for a display when “Oor Eaglesham Wullie” returns to the school later in September.
