Authors and Posties – a busy December!

P4S had a fantastic afternoon sharing their “Gift of Christmas ” pop – up books with their families and friends. A focus on the values of sharing, giving and caring for others produced some wonderful stories about heroic elves and their efforts to help children and Santa at the same time!

Reflections on our books produced many comments about the improvements this project had made to the development of writing skills and the fun we had making the pop – ups for our books.

A big thank you to the parents , grandparents and aunties and friends who came to help with our art and craft.

Primary Four also organised and ran the Christmas Post for the school. We researched charities supporting the Global Goals of ending hunger and poverty, presented our arguments to each other and then we voted. We raised £135.70 for Unicef!

The skills of teamwork, perseverance and the ability to work hard were all identified as key to this enterprise project as well as the practical application of learning about using  money.

” I wish we could have run the post for longer” – Luca

“It could not have been better,” – Finlay

These were sentiments shared across the class and stage!
