Head Teacher for a Day

Our children have researched various jobs and prepared a short speech about a job that they would like to do. Each class was asked to vote for the talk they found most interesting and engaging. Our class winners  presented their talks to the whole school and the overall winner was James Docherty in P6/7, who would like to be a detective. Yesterday, James had the opportunity to be our Head Teacher for the day.

I think you’ll agree that he looks very comfortable in that chair! James did a great job and very kindly announced that we could have an extra 5 minutes break!

Here are all of our  class winners:

 

International Day – Friday 29th March

On Friday 29th March, we are celebrating an international day to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Children can pay £1 (£2 per family) to come in dressed in clothes from a country of their choice. Alternatively they can wear a small symbol representing the country of their choice. For example, a thistle, piece of tartan, sombrero, a small picture of a flag using face paints. There will also be competitions held on the day and they can choose which of these they would like to enter for 50p each. The competitions are:

  • A rock, paper, scissors tournament (originated in China)
  • Guess how many sweets are in the jar ( invented by a Hungarian)
  • Enter a drawing competition using pencils ( first created in English)
