As our infant nativity is about a stable hoedown, could we ask all P3F children to wear cowboy-ish clothes eg. jeans/denim skirt and checked/casual shirt. Please don’t buy anything new. Anything similar will do. Cowboy hats may be worn. Please bring these clothes into school in bag on Monday 16th December for the dress rehearsal, then take them home and come to school wearing them on Tuesday 17th December.
P3F children may also bring party clothes on Tuesday 17th December which they can change into at lunchtime if they wish.
I hope you are having a wonderful night. We have spent some time in class this year talking about the Global Goals, sustainability, and how to be conscientious global citizens. Pupils have come up with some amazing ideas about how to look after our planet and we have recently begun to discuss growing vegetables locally. We were very lucky to have Mr Scott visit us to discuss the planting process and he even brought some seeds catalogues along for us to study.
We decided to design some fabulous gardens for the ‘One Planet Picnic’. Some of the results are below. I was very impressed with all the pupils ideas and they should be very proud of themselves!
We have decided that we will try to create a mini garden and pupils have been bringing in plastic bottles and milk cartons to use as planters.
A huge well done P3W – you truly are a brilliant representation of ‘Think Global, Act Local.‘
I hope you have had a fabulous start to your well earned holidays, and have been having lots of fun in this wonderful summer sunshine.
Here are a few suggestions of summer reading from Waterstones, for a quieter moment, in the shade. Maybe you’ll find a few of the titles in the library and you could read them towards your Summer Book challenge.
Just a wee reminder that we are looking forward to welcoming you to our class assembly on Wednesday 20th June at 11am. Please ensure you have your ticket, make your way through the main school entrance and you will be directed to the school hall.
The children are looking forward to performing for you. They have been working really hard on their lines and songs – you are in for a treat! I am so proud of them all!
Local Farmer Mr John Ritchie has kindly offered to have Primary 3 to see around his working farm on Thursday 14th June. This will be such a valuable experience for our learning, and will complement all that we have covered in our Farm topic this term.
Children should bring a waterproof coat and wellington boots for the visit.
We will travel by bus from the school to the farm on Thursday afternoon. Primary 3S will have an early lunch and leave at 12.55pm with Primary 3H leaving at 1.55pm. Each class with have an hour on the farm.
We are very grateful to Mr Ritchie for inviting us, and to the Royal Highland Educational Trust who have supported the school in the cost of the bus for the children.
Apologies for the late notice! We would be very grateful of any parent helpers – 2 per class would be wonderful. Please put a wee note in the homework diary if you are able to assist.
