Primary 5

P5 have been selling Children in Need wristbands each morning for £1 or £1.50. Sales are going well and we are nearly sold out. Thank you to everyone for supporting this good cause. Tomorrow the school will hold a dress down day. The theme will be dress up as Pudsey or Blush, wear pyjamas, come as a superhero, wear yellow or wear spots. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in their Children in Need inspired outfits.

In topic we are continuing with our Money, Money, Money enterprise topic. This week the children have decided on a company name and designed a logo. They are now creating posters to advertise their stall and the product they are going to sell. Each group has written a business plan so they know what order to complete their enterprise activity in. Our resources have started to arrive and the children are very eager to begin making their products next week. I think you will be impressed with the ideas and creativity each group has shown.

The children have been writing persuasive pieces about litter and the problems it causes our community. They came up with a lot of good arguments and we think that they got their point across very well.

In assembly we had visitors who spoke about the importance of the 3 Rs- Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle. The children seemed to be very knowledgeable about this. Our Eco committee are doing a survey at the moment about how much plastic is used during lunch time. We have been surprised at the amount of plastic collected. Look out for more information coming home about this soon.
