Group YPI Donations Needed

Group 8 would like to help a local charity called ‘The West Lothian School Bank’. We are asking for donations of any school uniform, shoes and jackets. Also items such as pencils, pens, school  bags and lunch boxes etc. These can be used and in good condition or brand new. Any help would be much appreciated. Drop off point is in the language room where group 8 are based.

World Book Day

Thank you to our friends at Waterstone’s in Livingston who exchaged over 70 of our Book Day tokens for new books to use in Pinewood. These will be used in Language, the school library and for our new homework bags. Well done to Group 8 who collected the books today.

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.

Visit to Bramble Cottage

Class 2 and 3 had the pleasure of visiting Bramble Cottage – a new play centre in Blackburn. The pupils had a great time; sliding down the shoot, dressing up in different costumes, using the climbing wall and role playing in the shop and kitchen. Check out our photos to see how much fun it was! We can’t wait for our next visit.

Primary Pupil Council

The primary pupil council met this morning and were ready and raring to go after the holidays! We all have new job roles to take on:

Callum was our leader

Cameron was in charge of pouring the water

Mark kept the meeting running on time as the time keeper

Kai and Liam kept notes of our ideas from the meeting

Tyler and Harry were  in charge of tidying up

Ben and Graeme were our messengers.

We found out what the plan for this term was and we wrote down ideas for how to make some money to buy new playground toys!

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.

Art

We enjoyed making our abstract door pictures. We drew a door shape with lines to make it look like a corridor. You can see our finished pictures on display in school.
