🦺 Be Bright Day 24th November 🦺

November 24, 2023 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

Well… Our Be Bright Day as been an incredible success! It’s been amazing to see so many of our pupils in super bright and reflective clothing to raise awareness of staying safe and seen in the darker months. The JRSOs and WOW ambassadors have been very impressed with the effort that everyone has gone to. Thank you parents and carers with your help in this too!

The JRSOs have been visiting all pupils at their assemblies this week to talk about road safety and staying safe and seen too. They’ve put in a huge amount of effort, along with the WOW ambassadors, to organise the event.

Each class has now had their brightest winners announced and the brightest staff have been selected as well. I think you’ll agree they look dazzling 🤩 These winners received their goody bags and certificates today and came together for a big photo.

Every pupil in the school also received a reflective pack/keyring to take home, courtesy of our fabulous parent council. A huge thank you to you for helping to make our Be Bright day an even bigger success.

The Ancient Egyptians

October 10, 2023 by Mrs Calder | 0 comments

Room 13 are absolutely loving their topic so far. Here’s a quick glance at what we have been up to:
– ​We started off by locating Egypt on a map (well done Steven for spotting it) and pointing out key places.
– ​We worked in pairs to investigate photographs of ancient Egyptian artefacts, trying to figure out what each item was used for.
– Our local minister Ian has been in our class showing us real statues/figurines and even talking to us about mummification – YUCK!
– ​In maths we looked at the Ancient Egyptian number system and we learned how to write numbers in hieroglyphs.
– ​We have discussed as a class how our lives today are similar and different to life back in Ancient Egypt.
Fun fact: did you know…the Ancient Egyptians did not use money. Instead, they would trade one another for goods.
We can’t wait to learn how to write our names in hieroglyphics soon!
