During the week 29th January – 4th February, Beatlie celebrated Literacy Week which had been arranged to coincide with National Story Telling Week.
Throughout the week, all classes focussed (even more than usual!) on language, communication and story telling. There was lots of hard work but lots of fun too. Visitors came into school to tell us stories, Kate and Allison shared story telling songs with us. Some classes chose to have a theme running throughout the week whilst others incorporated Chinese New Year. Some classes made their own books and visited each other to share stories – it was a very sociable week!
Each class made a BIG page to be put together to create ‘Beatlie’s Big Book’ in celebration of this special week. These individual pages were shared at the whole school assembly at the end of the week.
Here is an assortment of photographs which give a flavour of what went on.

Beatlie Enterprise Fair

The cafe was busy too!

At the end of November, Beatlie held a very successful enterprise fair. All classes had worked really hard to contribute to the event and raise money for their own class funds.
There was a cafe for refreshments and a raffle too.
All stalls had agreed to contribute a percentage of their profits to a charity which was to be announced on the
day. Parents had nominated favourite charities and the lucky one drawn from the hat (well, bucket actually) was Signpost. This proved to be a VERY popular result and indeed Signpost had had more nominations that any other charity.

Busy, busy, busy

Beatlie’s Trashion Show

In October, Pentland organised a truly sensational Trashion Show. The pupils from Pentland started the proceedings by showing off their amazing creations made completely out of trash – cleaned of course! The various models paraded up and down the catwalk which had also been constructed out of trash. Stunning!

Pentland then provided each class with a bag of trash to create their own costumes. The results would have impressed top designers from all over the world! New York, Paris, London, Munich – watch out!!!!
