Author visit March 3rd 2020

We are very excited to announce the visit to the school of local author Lindsay Littleston.  She will be speaking to children in P5-7 about creative writing and life as an author.  Her books will be available to purchase on the day at the price of £6 each but there is absolutely no obligation to buy!  Children can bring cash on the day if they wish to buy.

She will be reading from her latest novels, The Titanic Detective Agency and Guardians of the Wild Unicorns.

It will be a fun, interactive presentation with a quiz, book reading and question and answer session.

P5 Scots’ Poems

Each year we celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish in school during the month of January.  Below is a list of poems children should choose from.  They should choose one they wish to learn and will recite to the rest of the class towards the end of the month.  A representative from each class is then chosen to deliver their poem at our Scots’ Assembly at the beginning of February.

Fireworks Aff The Castle

Up in the Morning Early

Afton Water

A Red, Red Rose

If children find another poem they would prefer to learn and it is of a similar length/difficulty, they can as us to have a look at it and see if it is suitable.

Children should have decided their poem by Friday 10th January.
