This session we have launched our Friday Focus Groups. All pupils in P5/6/7 participate. The pupils are divided into three groups and throughout the session will rotate and have opportunity to experience all the groups. The groups are “The Green Team”, “Healthy Choices” and “The Press Gang.”
The main focus for “The Green Team” has been to tidy up the garden area at the front of the school and to improve the look of the school grounds.
The Press Gang has been busy keeping people in the school community up to date with all the news from the school. Keep reading the Loch a’ Tuath News for our monthly updates. They also have allocated areas in the social Area for each class to report about what is going on in their class.
The Healthy Choices group has been learning about healthy eating choices and baking different foods such as healthy buns and tasting different types of food.
Abair gun d’fhuair sinn aimsir math fhads a bha sinn a cuir na daffodils againn. Tapadh leibhse a h-uile duine a chuidich!
Thank you to those who were available and helped us plant our daffodil bulbs today. Hopefully we will see the results of our hard work in the spring. The children certainly enjoyed their day and I’m sure they will sleep well tonight.
A very successful Scholastic Bookfair was run by GP6/7 as a Scholastic Business School. It went beyond just literacy and it encouraged the pupils to develop real-world skills including financial awareness, creative thinking, responsibility and teamwork. Pupils had to apply for positions by filling in application forms, submitting CVs and writing letters. This year the total rewards came to £510.05 which will be spent to stock up our library.
Pupils were responsible for the advertising, displaying, selling, ordering and totalling up the money each day. Alongside the bookfair pupils, as events co-ordinators, organised competitions. Below is Eilidh, winner of the cake competition The cake was baked and decorated by Ellie GP7 tying in with the Book Fair theme.
Gaelic 4/5 planned and organised a Mad Hair day and encouraged all pupils and staff to support the fundraising event.
