P5a had a great time at Paisley Museum learning all about weaving. We were shown different fibers and materials. We created our own weaving pattern which will be put together to create a large Paisley pattern picture. Thanks to the staff at the Museum for being so helpful and enthusiastic.
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.

To support the Beatson charity even further, our staff will be participating in a 10 mile sponsored walk on Saturday 20th May from West to the Beatson in Glasgow.
We have created a Justgiving page for donations.
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.
Primary 5 had an interesting trip to The Tall Ship and Riverside Museum in Glasgow as part of our Titanic topic. We toured the ship, museum and we became marine archaeologists finding artifacts from the Titanic. Thank you to the staff at the Riverside and parents for helping.
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.
Primary 5a are showing off their wonderful new books that were purchased thanks to the generous sponsored Zumbathon. The class had a discussion about the books they would like to buy such as David Walliams, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Katherine Rundell and many, many more!
