P5S Tall Ship

What a titanic day we had! We started off with a wander around the Riverside Museum and visited the shop. Next we became Marine Archaeologists by excavating some hidden Titanic treasures. We had to mark their location using a co-ordinate system and draw them.

We then sorted the items into real and fake by looking closely at them. We also decided which items would be used by First or Second class passengers or crew.

After that we had a very short look around the Tall Ship followed by lunch. Our next workshop was delivered by  Joe, John and Rob who used to decode Morse Code messages. They taught us how to send and S.O.S. and we all had a try! We gave them some secret messages to send (‘Can we have donuts?’ and ‘Bishopton Primary is the best’).

Our last workshop with Molly was to learn about the maids and waiters who served the first class passengers. Kirsty and Lewis were lucky enough to dress up in their work outfits and decided which table was set the best.

We had a fabulous day, learned loads and had fun too. Thank you to Kirsty’s nana and Jaskson’s grandma for helping us.

 

Uganda Fundraising Update

Hello everyone! Following on from the ‘Chuck it in a Bucket for Uganda’ day before the holidays, I am absolutely thrilled to say that our school community raised an amazing £578 pounds! Thank you so much for your support in raising this fantastic amount and for your continued engagement in the project. I have really enjoyed speaking to the children about the upcoming visit and cannot wait to  share my pictures and experiences with them when I return in August.

Thanks again,

Miss Cauley

 

 

Big Pedal – Monday 23rd April to Thursday 3rd May

The whole school will be taking part in the Big Pedal.  We would ask that children bring their bike or scooter to school each day. Helmets must be worn on bikes and it would be safer if children with scooters wore helmets too, however that is up to individual parents. Every class will have a cycling session every day in the playground. Pupils must dismount their bikes and scooters in the playground and be mindful in the ashy path and surrounding areas of the school grounds.

If you can, please join in as we will count the number of children with bikes and scooters and the number of supporters eg younger siblings, parents, grandparents or teachers who cycle to school. You can follow our progress on the Big Pedal website. #BigPedal

Non-Uniform – Wednesday 28th March

A reminder for all classes (except P3H who will have their own day on Thursday) should wear their own clothes on Wednesday 28th March and bring a donation for Uganda. A letter was issued last week explaining that Miss Cauley will be working in Uganda this summer on a teacher training project in the Masindi region. Any support would be much appreciated. Thank you  in advance.
