Christmas Jumper Day

On Friday 14th December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The whole school and nursery  will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.

We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.

And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece!

We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.

With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!

 

 

An update from P6a

This week in P6a we have been really busy preparing for our French café which we will be hosting after our nativity on  Tuesday, P6 parents please come and join us after our show on Tuesday in the dining hall.

We have also been learning computer science because a lot of schools don’t teach that. We have been taking part in ‘hour of code’ on a website where we can play games that are related to coding.

On Tuesday 10 people from the class where chosen to test and internet game related to money and coding from the Money sense team.

All of us made one point perspective drawings of the Titanic. we drew them (with the help of Mr Kenny) and painted them.

Thank you for reading our blog post from this week.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday!

P6a Money Museum

P6a had the opportunity yesterday to visit the Money Museum on the Mound. This was a fantastic trip from start to finish. The workshops were both informative and fun, enhancing our knowledge of money. We got to make our own coins and bank notes which we all got to take home. We were able to handle some very old items that were once used for money like shells, cocoa beans and animal fur. This museum is worth a visit!
