What a busy week!

Wow, what a week we’ve had!

Literacy Week

Our Literacy Week was a great success.  We’ve had writing workshops led by Mrs. Osborne, a storyteller for Primary 1-3, trips to the library for Primary 7, an author visit for Primary 4-7, a book swap, a read-a-thon, a book quiz, the chance to come to school dressed as a book character and today’s assembly included reading the book “Dear Zoo”, IN FRENCH!  In addition to all of this classes have been taking part in extra Literacy based work throughout the week.  We hope that all these activities have sparked some extra enthusiasm for Literacy and that the children have been inspired to pick up a book or write one themselves!

Child Smile

On Thursday children in Primary 1-4 had fluoride varnish applied to their teeth in order to keep them in tip top condition.


Our Primary 5s continued their swimming lessons at the Sir Matt Busby Centre.

Parents’ Evening

As I’ve already posted, we were delighted at the amount of parents who came to the school to discuss their child’s progress with their teacher.

Bring and Buy Sale and Soak the 7s

Today our Primary 7s ran their Bring and Buy Sale and got completely soaked all in order to raise money for their leavers’ event in June.  The appeared to have a great time and have managed to raise over £200.  Well done to you all the Primary 7s, Mrs. Minchella and Mrs. Shaw.

Charity work

Today we posted two cheques to very worthwhile charities.  We have raised £384 for Guide Dogs for the Blind by selling chocolate eggs in knitted chicks and £298.45 for Comic Relief by selling red noses and making our faces funny for money.  A huge thank you to everyone who contributed.

We’ll post photos of all the events as we collect in the cameras.  Thanks to all the pupils, parents and staff who have made this such a wonderful week.

Next Week

Next week is a much quieter week with children continuing their usual work in their classes.  Please remember that we stop for the Spring holiday at 2.30pm on Thursday 2nd April.

Have a lovely weekend!
