Christmas Choir to perform at school Christmas Fair

We have enough children who have returned forms to enable us to go ahead and perform at the School Fair on Saturday.                             We have our final rehearsal tomorrow (Wednesday) at lunch time – 12.15 in Miss Mackay’s classroom.  It would be good if you bring a packed lunch.                                                                                                                      On Saturday, we will be performing at 2 o’clock for about 20 minutes on the stage.  We will meet at 1.55pm in the P7 cloakroom near the stage.

Hope to see you all tomorrow.                                                                                      Miss Mackay and Miss Cuthill

Christmas postboxes

It’s that time of year again.  The Christmas postboxes are out in school.   If children wish to post a Christmas card to someone in school please put the child’s name and class on the envelope.  If you think there are 2 people with the same name please put second initial too eg. Sam M . The P3 Christmas posties will deliver your card for you.

P4M – Christmas in a Country of Your Own Choice

Please work with a partner to choose a country to research about how they celebrate Christmas. Use the weblink below:

Why Christmas

You must use the website to answer the following questions:

  • Flag – what does it look like?
  • Where is your country? What is the temperature?
  • Santa Claus – What is he called and what does he do in that country? Does anyone else bring children gifts?
  • Food – Are there any special dishes they eat at Christmas time?
  • How to say Happy Christmas in that country
  • Traditions – what might you see .e.g. trees, decorations, parades etc?
  • Comparison – How do these compare to Scottish traditions (difference and similarities)?
