P5, P6 and P7 were treated to a performance of Tam O’Shanter today as part of their Scottish topic. Craig visited the school and talked to us about the origins of the poem and then he acted it out, making us laugh and jump. We learned a lot about how to perform and make a poem come to life as well as a bit about life in the time of Robert Burns and the story of the poem.
P5-7’s Christmas show will start at 2 pm on Monday and Tuesday. Doors will be open at 1.45. Please note the change of time.
After our performances we are welcoming parents up to our classrooms to showcase some of our learning. Some classes have made some Christmas items and will be selling them for a small donation.
Monday – P7a, P7b, P6b ONLY
Tuesday – P6a, P5a, P5b ONLY
On Friday 15 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, or wear something festive.
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!
Today we welcomed Peter and Arthur (Ewan’s Grandad) from the Poppy Factory. We had a fantastic and very engaging talk from Peter. He showed us his extensive WW2 collection. We got to handle and try on the uniforms, guns, gas masks, hats and food.
Thank you for extending our World War 2 knowledge.
