How I came up with the Blue Sensory name and Logo

Hi everyone, this is the designer of the Blue Sensory logo. Here is how I designed the logo and came up with the name of our company, Blue Sensory. I came up with the name by combining two things, the colour blue from the pinewood school logo and sensory from the sensory toys that we make. The logo is a hand holding slime (the slime in the logo I made was just a circle, I’m going to ask my teacher if I could redesign it) the logo just came off the top of my head.

Literacy Week

Our Literacy Week in November was very successful! We had a visit from Ron Fairweather who was a super storyteller – he had us all very engaged in his funny stories! Some classes also enjoyed some shared reading time with P7 pupils from Murrayfield. Our Leavers group lead some story sack sessions with the early years’ classes – they did a fantastic job of reading to the pupils and keeping them engaged. All the classes made a fantastic effort in the ‘decorate your door’ competition – Class 5 won the primary prize and Group 9 won the secondary prize. Thank you to our head boy and girl for judging!

Pinewood Choir at Edinburgh Airport

Pinewood School Choir entertained visitors to Edinburgh Airport this week. They sang Christmas songs for almost two hours and raised over £500 for charity in the process, including a £250 donation from the Airport. The Charity Committee in school will now decide where the money goes. They did a wonderful job, well done to all.

Strictly Pinewood

Our annual event was a roaring success as once again our pupils did us proud. Videos of the pupil dances will follow shortly but until then here is a sneak preview of what our staff get up to after school as they perform Grease.

Canoeing on the Union Canal

Group 8 had a great time canoeing on the Union Canal. We have to collect and organise all our equipment. We all help each other to put the canoes in the water. We have to work together to paddle the canoes. We all had lots of fun.

Primary Pupil Council

We had our first pupil council meeting in the primary this week. We welcomed all our new members and they put on their pupil council ties.

They all decorated their folders and we looked at what makes a good pupil council member.
