Raising money for SCIAF

The sale of toast to raise money for SCIAF is doing very well so far.

The Citizenship Group are selling toast for 10p a slice at interval on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during Lent to raise money for SCIAF.

Please continue to support this great cause, thanks.


Week 3 in Primary 1

The class have been working very hard this week in a number of curricular areas. We have started to learn about our capital letters, continued to learn about money and space, and we also continued to be bucket fillers!

This week we all had a chance to practise writing our capital letters on the SmartBoard and thought about where we use capital letters. Some of the ideas we came up with were: Paisley, Scotland, Earth, at the start of a sentence and at our first and last names. We also played matching games that let us match our lower-case letters to the corresponding upper-case letters, which we did well at.

We updated / finished our Bucket Filling wall display. It is now brighter and it has visuals for us to look at and remember how our class should look, sound and feel like. Miss Payne took our photos which will go up on our wall display to fill the gap and we told her what we do to fill buckets so that she can put that up on our display.

Miss Payne also created a feelings chart for us this week as we did a lot of talking about our feelings and how we show and handle these feelings. This means that each morning when we come into school we can stick our name on the emotion that we are feeling and we can share why we are feeling this if we want.
For our space topic this week we learned all about space travel and how rockets work. We watched a video about this and we also got to watch a real rocket launch! We got the chance to design our own rockets for our wall display so that everyone has a piece of work up on the wall. Then, we wrote 10 things that we would like to take to space, we came up with some great ideas: teddy bear; a friend; a space suit; and a helmet. This is our wall display so far –
Finally, we did some good money work this week. We learned to count 1p coins and add these up. We will continue to work on money next week, introducing the 5p and 10p coins.

Charity toast- 10p a slice

The Citizenship Group, led by Mrs Lawson, are raising money for SCIAF. During Lent, they are selling toast for 10p per slice, during the morning interval on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  So far we have had quite a queue and hopefully it will continue like that so that we can raise as much as we can.

P7 are in stitches

P7 have recently taken part in some stitching workshops provided by The Paisley Thread Museum. For 3 weeks in January, Stephen, Maureen and Christine visited the school to teach the children some of the history of cotton in Paisley. The children then took part in a stitching workshop.  They created a design on a bobbin shape and  used an embroidery hoop and some basic stitches to embroider their design.
