Dress Up Day

Thank you  for putting so much effort into the costumes your children excitedly arrived in this morning. They definitely had a super time and many pupils were virtually unrecognisable!

Just as expected, we were astounded by how inventive and creative our families can be. We had a vast array of outfits ranging from Dorothy and Annie to Funky Pigeon and from Mike Wazowski and Shaun the sheep to Robin Hood and Mary Berry.

Whatever will you think of next!

Thank you for your support.

Cyber Search

Our pupil council have launched a cyber search to encourage the use of the school website.

We have issued the entry forms double sided to allow the pupils to choose which side they complete, they may even wish to complete both however it would only count as one entry!
On one side is a picture search and the other is a word search.

If your child wishes to take part they simply hand their completed form with their name and class clearly marked on it to Miss McCabe P7 teacher or their pupil council representative in class along with the 50p entry fee.

Can you find me in the school website???????

Copies of both searches are available here along with the launch poster Character Search   Word Search   Launch Poster

Good luck!
