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!
P7A have been studying how to create perspective in their art and have used this to create some wonderful poppy field paintings. The effect is fantastic and has led us to find out a lot about poppies and their symbolism after the First World War.
P7 had an amazing trip to the Lady Haig Poppy Factory in Edinburgh where they learned about the history of the poppy, its significance and how they are made.
They found out about life in the Second World War for people at home and on the Front. They saw loads of artifacts from the 1940s and some lucky people (and Mrs Rae) got to dress up in the kind of equipment worn by soldiers at that time.
They got a chance to make their own poppies and had a fantastic and informative trip.
