A HUGE thank you for your food donations!

Thank you for all your generous food donations to our Christmas Food Bank Appeal. Not only did we manage to reach our goal of making a Christmas dinner hamper from each class, we have also collected enough additional food to make another large donation to West Lothian Food Bank. The donations will be taken to the food bank warehouse in Livingston tomorrow and they will be distributed by their team before Christmas.

Spanish Week in P7D!

This week Primary 7D have been learning about Spain and Spanish culture.

We reflected on the work of Pablo Picasso and we were inspired to create our own Picasso inspired portraits using bright colours and abstract shapes.

We also spent time researching Spain and we created information PowerPoints which we presented to the class.

Finally, we enjoyed tasting Spanish food like chorizo, Spanish tortillas, olives, Manchego cheese and Serrano ham, as well as fruit grown in Spain. Using sensory descriptors, we tried to describe the appearance, smell, taste and texture of each food that we tried.

Anderson Shelter Homework Project

Take a look at our amazing Anderson air-read shelters!

As part of our Second World War topic, Primary 7 were assigned a seven-week homework project to research, design and create an Anderson air-raid shelter. As you can see, the shelters have been a great success. Next week the children will test their shelters in order to evaluate their designs.

A huge thank you to all the family members who helped their children create these air-raid shelters. The pupils are so proud of their work and it really makes a difference when parents are so involved!

Primary 7 Bake Sale!

On Friday 26th May Primary 7 will be holding a bake sale. The funds raised will go towards Leavers hoodies and any extra money will go to charity. Children are invited to bring in 50p and each class will be given an opportunity during the school day to attend.

Cake Donations – If there is a keen baker in your family then we would greatly appreciate any baking donations! These can be dropped to school on Thursday 25th May.

Thank you for your support,

Primary 7.

P7’s visit from West Lothian Drug and Alcohol Service (WLDAS)

Michelle from WLDAS paid Primary 7 a visit this morning. Michelle taught us all about the harmful effects of smoking. To help us prepare for our move to high school, we discussed how to cope with peer-pressure and what to do in difficult situations. Michelle asked us all to give up something for a week as part of a homework task, for example, fizzy drinks or Xbox. Michelle is coming back in May for the second part of the session and we are all looking forward to it!
