On Friday 15th November, we had lots of fun raising money for Children in Need. We paid £1 to wear our own clothes and some of us wore our pyjamas! We did a Pudsey bear hunt in the gym hall and outdoors which was great fun. I found Pudsey so I got some sweets! At playtime I bought a Pudsey biscuit for 35p, it was tasty!

What rainforest animals can you spot?

To top it off, the Glee club performed ‘Time of your Life’ as a tribute to her imaginary boyfriend (Patrick Swayze
Mrs Gray gave P6/7 and P4/5 a tub of chocolates and P1-3 received a box of Haribos. We had a wonderful afternoon and we hope Mrs Gray and her family enjoyed themselves.
The boys and girls of Uplawmoor Primary School are all members of a school committee. Each committee meet on a Tuesday where children have the opportunity to work with a member of staff to discuss ideas linking to their committee and plan upcoming events. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to raise the profile of the school and lead us towards excellence.
The website committee are in charge of keeping our website up to date so please come and speak to Ruby, Jack (M), Jack (W), Christopher, Dylan, Rob or Luca if your class are doing something exciting and we will happily put it on the website!
