The International Group have been busy judging the Fairtrade Mascot and Fairtrade Birthday card/cake competitions. Mr Mount from Livingston’s Fairtrade Town Group came in to help with the judging process too. It was really hard to pick the winners as the standard was so high! Thank you to all who participated in the competitions. We will announce the winners soon.
P4 are very excited about Red Nose Day tomorrow, Friday 13th March. We have been working SO hard! The Film Group have finished filming and editing their films. The Red Nose Group have sold out of red noses – that is a whopping 480 red noses they have sold in the past week! The Advertising Group have been busy with tannoy announcements, interviews, making posters and writing a letter to parents. The Fundraising Group organised the making of the picture bead funny faces and Loom Band jewellry and they are now selling the products around classes. They have also been collecting the entries for our competition to design Mr Taylor’s face. And finally, the Assembly Group have made a PowerPoint presentation and have been rehearsing for the big day tomorrow. Please remember to “Make Your Face Funny for Money” tomorrow and bring a donation for Comic Relief. Thank you for your support!
This year Primary 4 are responsible for planning and organising Red Nose Day as part of an enterprise topic. The big day is Friday 13th March so preparations are in full swing! We have split into teams with different responsibilities such as fund-raising, advertising and filming groups. As we work on this project we are developing skills in many areas such as teamwork, creativity, problem-solving, ICT and money management. Red noses are on sale for £1 – we will come around classes every morning to sell these. (We will also be selling loom band bracelets and funny faces next week – details to follow). The theme is “Make Your Face Funny for Money” so we invite you to come to school with a “funny” face on Friday 13th March and please bring a donation for this if you can. We are also holding a talent show during our assembly next week – each year group is invited to enter one “funny” act – so start rehearsing now!
The new Williamston Waves crew delivered their first broadcast to the whole school on Friday! This was a great opportunity for the crew to introduce themselves and share their vision for Williamston Waves. Keep your eyes open and ears listening to find out more about what the crew are getting up to. We hope all classes will tune in to our broadcast every Friday after break time.
