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!
It would be fair to say P7B enjoyed their trip to Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory. From RSM Peter putting his new recruits through their paces to the actual making of the poppies on the shop floor; everyone had an interesting time. Iona may now be known as ‘John’, we met James Bond’s granny, and we know what a 4 week ration of chocolate looks like. Meeting all the service men making the poppies and wreathes means we can understand the difference between the types of poppy popular around the world. Most importantly, this trip gave us all a better understanding of our World War 2 topic. Thanks to everyone who helped us with this trip.
P7A and P7B have been starting to find out about coding. We’ve looked at why coding is important, where coding is used (EVERYWHERE!) and we have started making our own mini games using a coding language called Scratch. Here’s a game that Jay and Harley wrote using Hour of Code’s Flappy Bird tutorial.
