Our Coding club kids spent a great day yesterday at West College Scotland participating in a Mini Game Jam. The children were asked to design a game in a short space of time based on a given theme which they were only told at the start of the day. The theme was Space and our two teams created two very different games.
Thanks again to Dr Amanda Ford and her team for providing the opportunity for the kids.
Yesterday some of our P6 and P7 boys and girls took part in the Renfrewshire Schools Cross Country in Renfrew. Well done to all who took part on such a blustery day. It was great to see our pupils cheering each other on.
Thank you again to our parent helpers for their support.
Getting ready to go:
We’ve done it! Some of us look a lot happier than others!:
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.
This year Fairtrade fortnight takes place from 27th February to 12th March. We have already held our coffee morning, many thanks to those of you who managed along.
The children have also decided to fundraise further. Guess the birthday of the Fairtrade Bear and raffle tickets for a Fairtrade chocolate explosion box will be available from Tuesday 21st February. Tickets will be priced at 50p for each and you can purchase as many as you would like. Many thanks for your continued support.
On Wednesday 7th September all of the children in the school participated in ZOOLAB workshops. We found out a huge amount of information about a wide range of creatures. We all enjoyed seeing the animals and some of felt brave enough to touch or hold them.
On Tuesday 13th September we all celebrated Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. It was a fantastic day!! All the children enjoyed taking part in special activities and some dressed up as characters for the day.
