The final Authors Live broadcast for 2017 is coming up during Book Week Scotland, on Tuesday 28 November at 11am. Scottish Book Trust and BBC Scotland Learning will be welcoming bestselling author Phil Earle to Authors Live for an exciting event all about his Storey Street books! Phil will be sharing his best creative writing tips, making this a great event to get children inspired to create their own stories this Book Week Scotland. This free digital event is best suited to P4-S1 classes and can be watched on the Scottish Book Trust website where there are many other previous authors live videos.
We will be having a ‘dress as you please’ day on Friday 24th November to gather donations for the tombola stall at the Christmas Fayre. Your child is asked to please bring a bottle to school on that day. If the bottle is glass or alcoholic please hand it in to the school office.
As you are aware we participated in the Primary Science Quality Mark award scheme. Science has been a key focus of the school development led by Miss Fish and our Science Ambassadors.
Together with the ongoing development, creation of the Science Laboratory in the Senior Area, development of teaching resources and involvement of parents, our submission was awarded a Silver Award which is a huge success. The award was formally presented to the children on Wednesday 8th November. Well done everyone!
The Christmas Fayre is run by the Parent Council with all monies raised going directly to the Parent Council to support our young people. The parent council will issue more details in the near future.
