The nursery children had a busy day designing some Christmas cards.
This week every class in school has been designing an image that will be printed onto a set of cards for families to buy. The PTA will let us know when the cards are ready to order. We can’t wait to see how they look! We hope we raise lots of money for the school.
Well done to everyone who joined in with our “walking bus” this week. We had mixed weather but kept going and all felt fresh and ready to learn.
After the October holidays I will be running a lunchtime chess club. We have five chess sets in school but this is a plea for any chess sets that are lurking in cupboards collecting dust! They don’t need to be in great condition, I’ll take mismatched plastic sets! All donations kindly accepted – just hand in to the office! Many thanks, Mrs Gentil
Today P7 were working with clay in art. First they designed an African mask on paper and then transferred their designs to clay. The key words we learned were “scoring” and using “slip”. Ask your child if they can explain this to you!
Thank you to all the parents who helped at the Macmillan Coffee Morning. P5/6 raised £662 and we are really grateful for all your generous donations. Thank you to all who came and enjoyed the morning.

The Primary 7′s have been learning about the features and origins of Samba Music with Miss Mailer. They played a mixture of rhythms on a variety of percussion instruments and responded to whistle signals from the Samba Band leader. Their performance was fantastic!
The next Parent Council meeting will be held this Wednesday (1st Oct) at 18:30 in the staff room. Items on the agenda include the recruitment of a new head teacher, the after school club plus much more which all need as much parental input as possible.
The meeting is open to all parents / carers. Please feel free to come along.
The morning class have been baking some delicious buns for the Macmillan Coffee Morning. We hope you enjoy them.
