P6 are doing Technology with Mrs Buist. P6 are doing a project about carriers and we are making our own bags with recycled plastic. We made names up for our technology items such as “PLOOL” which is our wool but it is made from plastic which we chopped up from carrier bags from Tesco, Asda and Morrisons bags. Then we tied them to each other and knitted the plastic which made “PlOOL”. We also came up with another name “COMPLAST” which is ironed plastic bags. P6 are hoping to show you our finished carriers at a future assembly.
We have used the whiteboard for the first time and it was great fun! In writing time we wrote a letter of complaint and we improved our letter formation.
Our topic is “Shops.” We have organised the class in small groups so everyone can make different things. We have decided to run a small shop with a cafe. We also decided to observe the high street shops to make our own P2/3 high street. Let’s go shopping!!!
This year the School Fair will be held on the 7th June from 11am – 1pm. There will be something for everyone to enjoy including a bouncy castle, pony rides, face painting to name just a few. We will also have stalls selling tea and coffee, second hand books, tombola, bottle stall and home baking. Please hand any donations into the school office.
To make the day a great success we also require help from parents/carers on the various stalls and also to set up and pack everything away again. If you can help please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class representative or the school.
This year both of our Sports Days will take place at Pinkie playing fields. Please come along and support all the children while they compete in the various events.
The logtrail has been delivered and is now getting put up. Please keep away from it until it is safe to use.
