Last week we had a very exciting week in Primary 4/5. We found out the amazing news that Newton Farm Primary School received a highly commended in the First Ministers Reading Challenge. To celebrate this the whole school got a exciting present, take a look below to see the class opening up their presents!
Primary 4/5 were so excited to have been given a brand new book! We can’t wait to find out what their books are all about.
Last week, we also had the opportunity to watch an Author’s Live with Scottish author Ross Mackenzie. Ross wrote one of the class novels we read this year, ‘Shadowsmith’. During this event he spoke about his new book series and answered questions sent in from pupils all around Scotland. We enjoyed finding out all about his writing process and what characters he felt he was most like!
