We had a great day on Friday 19th May raising money for the Beatson Cancer Charity. We had a visit from Amy who came and speak about what our donations will go towards and we had a special visit from Bella the Beatson Bee who came to say hello!
Everyone took part in a walk during the day and some parents came along to participate too. On Saturday 20th May, the staff at West and Maxwellton Nursery walked 10.1 miles from our school to the Beatson in Glasgow.
It was a great couple of days and our fundraising is sitting at an amazing £4,45! There is still time to donate through our Justgiving page www.justgiving.com/westieswalk4beatson
On Friday 19th May, pupils and staff are going to take part in a walk to support the Beatson Cancer Charity. Children can wear non uniform for a £1 donation and we ask that they try to wear something yellow on that day.

We would appreciate if you could share this link with family and friends on social media and encourage as many donations as possible.
Thank you for your continuing support.
On Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th March the photographer from Tempest is coming to the school to take photographs for all the Primary classes. P1 and P7 will have class, individual and family photographs taken and P2 – P6 will have individual and family photographs taken. If you would like a family photograph please send a letter to your older child’s class teacher.
I would ask that the children wear a white shirt and school tie on these days if at all possible.
We have come to the end of another block of our Reading Café. The boys and girls in P3 and P4 with their siblings have enjoyed the combination of reading and cooking. They have especially enjoyed inviting an adult along to share this experience with them.
As this year’s Enterprise Project, each stage at West was asked to come up with a product or service that they could provide to the school, all based around the theme of World Book Day.
Here at P3, we decided to set up a pop-up theatre in our library to perform some of our favourite school plays, using our language, drama and creativity skills to bring these texts to life.
As well as learning and rehearsing the actual plays themselves, we had to decide on how we would advertise our service to the rest of the school and present our ideas at our Enterprise Showcase. We had great fun filming our very cinematic trailer for our Library Theatre.
