Today was Comic Relief we did a lot of things. We had a bake sale and a comedy show and many other things! The bake sale was successful when selling because everybody loved all the cakes, it was a sell out! For the bake sale we raised a lot of money. Thank you so much to everyone that donated cakes, cookies, pancakes and their money! We especially liked the chocolate covered marshmallows. We held a comedy show and it was expertly hosted by Tony, Kuba and the birthday boy Ruiri. A big thank you to Erin and Kemi for putting it together. The acts were really funny and they obviously put in a lot of effort. Everybody dressed down excellently and some people really went to town with crazy hair and even crazier outfits. Comic Relief has been wonderful and we have had a fabulous time, thank you so much to everyone who has helped organise, raise money and put smiles on people’s faces.

The show is really coming on now and thank you for those who have supplied costumes so far, they’re looking fantastic. The action is going well and pupils are keeping up their enthusiasm with the songs and the performance. With the actual show fast approaching we ask that everyone be learning lines, learning lines, learning lines and learning lines. And if time can everyone be learning lines?

We have Dalguise in the coming week and so we would like to remind everyone to make sure that pupils have warm clothes, boots/ shoes that are made for walking, and that they have a black bin bag/ something to put dirty clothes in. Everyone is very excited and we know they are going to have an incredible time. Those who are not going, Mrs Hunter has some great ideas for next week and it promises to be an exciting week.

Thank you to everyone who brought in their favourite book today for World Book Day.

We loved seeing all of the different books and in Primary 3, we had recipe books, fact books, story books, picture books, pocket books and poem books! It was so interesting hearing about why these were your favourite, and we enjoyed learning from the Primary 5s what theirs were too.

We began having a look at our class Parent Assembly on knights and castles today and we are beginning to hand out parts. We will have these out by Monday next week. Please keep an eye out for these and help your child to learn their words. We are very excited to share with you what we have been learning. The date for your diaries is Friday the 29th March. Letters about this will follow.

Next week primary 6 are hosting a bake sale to raise money for Comic Relief. This will happen on Thursday 14th. Also, on Friday the 15th, it will be a dress down day, with the theme “Crazy Hair/ Crazy Dress” and they ask a donation of 50p is brought in on this day. We have a number of other things happening in school for this as well and P6 have been working hard to make it an enjoyable day for all whilst raising money for this great cause.

Please could P3 ask for children to bring in a stick from home next week. This will be used for us to make a bow and arrow set and complete some science investigations with them. Any stick from outside will do, as long as it is strong.

Letters will be handed out soon for our up coming trip as well, so please keep an eye out for these in bags. We are heading to Edinburgh Castle on the 20th of March as a nice finish to our castles topic.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Smith, Mrs Smith and Ms Matheson

In P4S last week we used our knowledge of fractions to play fun games online. We have enjoyed learning about fractions and in our number talks, we are becoming more confident in explaining our strategies.

We have been busy practising for our Scotland assembly. We have songs, acting, poems, power points, dancing and history included.  Our assembly is on Friday 17th at 11.30 in our brand new hall. We hope to see you there.

It was our last week with the students from West Lothian College teaching us a variety of skills in P.E. We want to say a big thank you for their time and input.

We learned about Burke and Hare in our topic time. We learned about medical instruments used by  people during this time. We also learned a poem:

Burke and Hare they were a pair

Killed a wife and didnae care

Then they put her in a box

and sent her off to Dr. Knox

Burke’s the butcher, Hare’s the thief

Knox the boy who buys the beef.
