Book Fair

The book Fair is back in school!!

Children will be given a opportunity to browse the book fair over the next few days. If your child would like a book, they can bring money to Mrs Donaldson at lunch time to purchase it.

As it is Scottish Book Week, we are delighted to announce that for every book purchased from out Book Fair, a book will then be donated to our school in return.

So support our school and get reading!

Ladies Night

On 28th November the school are holding a Pamper Night for ladies over 18s. Tickets are on sale for £10 which includes a choice of treatment. Treatments available are nails, eyebrow wax, hair styling or head massage. There will also be a variety of stall available to help get that Christmas shopping started! You can buy tickets on the night; fun starts at 6.30pm. We all hope you can come along and support our school.

William Soutar Competition

Children across Primary 6 & 7 took part in the William Soutar Poetry competition. They all performed a William Soutar poem and five were chosen to compete in the finals at AK Bell Library against four other schools. We are very proud of how the children represented the school and they each received a certificate for their fantastic efforts on the day.

Well done!

Children in Need

On Wednesday 12th November, we will be involved in our Children in Need Day! This year’s theme is Superheroes so, children and staff are welcome to come to school dressed as a superhero or come dressed as they please. A donation towards the Children in Need charity would be appreciated. Over the course of the morning, each class will run a variety of fun activities relating to Children in Need and citizenship. Then, in the afternoon, we are hosting a Talent Show! We are also looking for donations for our Bake Sale from which children will have an opportunity to buy some delicious cakes.

We are looking forward to having a fun day in order to raise money for such an important cause!

Remembrance Assembly

Our assembly this week was dedicated to Remembrance Sunday and was led by Rebecca from the Black Watch Museum. She showed us a PowerPoint all about the Poppy Appeal and World War One. She also took a volunteer and dressed them in Black Watch uniform from WWI. Mrs Carruthers showed us a video of what the Poppy Appeal actually does and the people that it helps. Primary 7 have been selling poppies to the classes all week.

Halloween Disco

There was a spooky vibe taking over Moncreiffe Primary School last Thursday as we took part in our annual Halloween Discos. There’s was a huge mixture of different, creative costumes, everyone who came along took part in a number of games including “Dooking” for Apples and Corners. We were also impressed to see the huge effort that went into this year’s Pumpkin Competition and would like to say a huge congratulations to this year’s winners. Thank you to Friend of Moncreiffe for organising such a fantastic night.

House Points

We are happy to announce that our House Point system is up and running! Each child has been placed into one of four houses; Dragons, Knights, Jesters or Wizards. We even had a special Moncreiffe Primary Sorting Ceremony where our magic Sorting Hat helped to decide which houses our new primary ones were going to be in. Now that we have our houses, staff across the school will be looking to hand out points for lots of different reasons including being polite, trying our best and helping others. Our points will be counted at different times throughout the term and the house with the most points will be given a special treat! Watch this space!
