It’s been very very busy in P1 with the run up to Christmas… the Nativity, the Fair, the Lunch and next week the Party and Church Service!
But we have even managed to squeeze in creating a few crafts to sell at tomorrow’s fair!
Hopefully everyone now knows the time that your children will be manning our stalls from the stickers yesterday.
We have worked very hard to create some beautiful handmade, bespoke and unique wrapping paper and gift tags!
There will be the individual bundle created by your child for you to buy, these are rolled up and ready to go!
Also there are lots of extras hanging up and on the mug trees for you to peruse and buy too!
£1.50 for the rolled up+ribboned bundle = 2 sheets of wrapping paper and 2 gift tags made by your child
Individual sheets of wrapping paper- 50p each or 3 for £1
Gift tags- 30p each or 4 for £1
** Also not to worry if you cannot make it along tomorrow as we will save your child’s bundle and if you send in the money we will happily send them home for you.**
In the meantime we hope you are enjoying our Nativity!
This week P7 have completed their topic of WW1. On Friday, we invited our parents to join us for a WW1 street party to celebrate the end of WW1. We shared our newspapers that we had wrote about the end of the war, our propaganda posters and our soldier portraits. We decorated the classroom in a street party style and made bunting, banners and party hats. We brought in some food to complete our party and played WW1 style games with our parents. We then got our parents to try our WW1 quiz on the laptops. Some questions were a bit tricky!
Please find below a link to the minutes from the November meeting of the Parent Council. Our next meeting is Tuesday 11th December, starting slightly earlier than usual at 6pm. All welcome!

We had a fantastic presentation by Gregor’s Mum at our weekly whole school assembly, explaining how the Village Gala Committee desperately needs more helpers for this year’s Gala to go ahead. As part of her powerpoint display, she showed us some wonderful photographs of Galas in the past and the children loved pointing out pictures of their family, neighbours, friends and even themselves! Please make sure we have a Gala this year and respond to the Committee’s plea for help! Look out for this leaflet sent home on Friday.
All of the children in every class from Nursery to P7, turned their frosty fingers into green fingers today in a whole school tidy up for Winter. From picking up litter and weeds, to planting bulbs for Spring, everyone worked as a team to maintain our wonderful school grounds. Appreciation to all of the parents who wrapped up too and came to lend a hand. They also turned their frosty fingers into green fingers! Thank you!
