Traditionally, Harvest is a time for communities to help one another. This year we would like to help some of our elderly community in Banton by giving them a gift from our harvest table. We need your help to do this.
To encourage pupils to think about giving to others, as part of homework, we are asking for a donation of one item for the harvest table, each week, if able to.
At the end of the collection, a selection of pupils will help to bag the items, and give these out at the Harvest Service or deliver in the community.
Week beginning Item to bring in:
Week Beginning 3/9 tin of soup
Week Beginning 10/9 tin of beans
Week Beginning 17/9 tin of custard
Week Beginning 24/9 tin of fruit
Week Beginning 1/10 packet of biscuits
Week Beginning 8/10 Pasta and sauce in a packet or tin of meat
We would be delighted if you could suggest someone who would be happy to receive a gift from our table. Please phone or email the school. We will also visit and ask our local pensioners who meet on a Wednesday.
This is the 2nd last day to get the Banton Basher. The Banton Basher is our school magazine.
…the closing date is Friday 1st of June to get issue 1…
The magazine is 50p and if you want one and you have a child in this school give 50p to them and we will get it to you A.S.A.P, if you want one and don’t have a child in the school you can come into the school before the closing date, pay 50p to the office and we will print one for you.
The magazine is full of interviews and news. It’s also got puzzles and games.
Thanks to everyone who has already got a copy of the magazine
Our trip to Stirling Castle on Wednesday was great success. Pupils were able to consolidate their recent learning on castles and landscapes in a fun and engaging way. Everyone behaved so well and were a real credit to the school and their families.
As part of our book day celebrations, this week’s homework is a whole school reading challenge. Try to complete as many activities as you can on the sheet. Every activity will count towards our whole school collective goal. If we reach our goal there will be a treat!
For any of you still snowed in, the link below will give you the homework sheet. All pupils will be issued with their own copy to complete.
