P3b.2 I.C.T.

P3b.2 have been using chrome books for I.C.T. lessons. The children have learned to  log in to glow using their glow usernames and passwords. This week, the children opened a word document, typed a sentence (about potatoes), changed the size, font and colour.

Maddie created a lovely document and achieved Proud Pupil for her hard work!

P3b are growing their own potatoes!

Primary 3b received boxes of potatoes in the post from Grow Your Own Potatoes.  We have chitted  the potatoes and they are on the window sill in our classroom. We have regional and rocket potatoes to grow.

Watch this space for more potato updates. 😀

Letters

Please check school bags for letters including World Book Day tokens.

Thank you for sending slips back for the Literacy Evening. We had a lot of replies so we had to choose names out of a hat. Children who have been chosen to help out have slips in their letter bundle.

Big Cats Reading Books

Please ensure your child has their reading book in their school bag every day as we need to use them in class and unfortunately, we don’t have spare copies.

Thank you for your continued support.

Fairtrade Fortnight

Dear Parent/Carer,

Our Fairtrade Pupil Group members have been working very hard to promote Fairtrade Fortnight which starts on Monday 24 February and finishes on Sunday 8 March 2020.

As preparation for Fairtrade Fortnight the Primary 4 pupil group members conducted a survey to find out which treats children would like to buy at the tuck shop we are planning to run. A subgroup of Primary 5s created posters to advertise the tuck shop around the school. The older members of the pupil group will be giving a speech and showing a PowerPoint to the rest of the school to raise awareness of Fairtrade. The Primary 7 members created a rota for the tuck shop (see below).

We would like to invite children to bring in cash to buy a Fairtrade treat from the tuck shop. We will be offering Geobake chocolate chip cookies, a variety of Divine chocolate bars and Fairtrade Jellybeans. The tuck shop will be running from Monday 2nd March until Friday 6th March. All items are £1.10 so please send your child with the correct amount if possible.

  • Monday 2nd March – Primary 1 and Primary 2
  • Tuesday 3rd March – Primary 3
  • Wednesday 4th March – Primary 4 and Primary 5
  • Thursday 5th March – Primary 6
  • Friday 6th March – Primary 7

Fair Trade Tuck Shop

Yours sincerely,

Fairtrade Pupil Group

Dancing in the 80’s with P3b.2

It may have been wet and miserable outside, but there was definitely a lot of fun inside especially when P3b.2 were learning some dance moves from the 80’s. Click on the link to see some cool moves. (Who needs a running man tutorial when there’s Harris!) 😂😂🎶
