Newsletter and Rocks Rock Reading Questionnaire

Dear Parents/Carers

Just to let you know that we have sent out information to Nursery (am), P1,  P1/2 and P2/3 regarding Ross Rocks Reading along with various other information.   Unfortunately out photocopier has broken down and we are waiting for an engineer to arrive.  We hope that all other classes will get the info tomorrow.  No email info was sent as there was a return slip attached for each pupil.

Edinburgh Castle Trip & Fairtrade

P5 kicked off their Scottish History timeline project with a visit to both Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. Nathan did a sterling job of pointing out the main places of interest around the castle and then we met a very important person – none other than Mary Queen of Scots herself! She drilled the class in the fine arts of noblemen and women.  We then a quick march down the Royal Mile and had lunch at the Palace. Just in the education room though – our invitation to the Queens Dining Room hadn’t got through! After lunch we were guided through several of the state rooms and a peek at where David Rizzio was murdered. The class had a great time, behaved impeccably and learned loads. The only downside was the weather – it was freezing.

The other big event of the week was the Fairtrade cafe. P5 put in a lot of work behind the scenes creating gorgeous posters, researching lots of facts to put into their personal leaflets and helping P1/2 get an understanding of what Fairtrade is all about. And then finally they helped run the successful cafe. It was so successful in fact, Mr Cain forgot to take any photos in his struggle to keep up with the teas and coffees. Doh! The cafe made in excess of £140 so a big thanks to everyone who contributed the delicious home baking and to those who turned up on the day to eat, drink and have a chat.   The class couldn’t have done it without your support.
