Building work is now beginning to get underway with the safety fencing now in place and some large machinery on site. The school playground now has a fenced area dedicated for P1 and P2 class use.
Don’t forget our competition for pupils who have been asked to design a poster to warn everybody of the potential dangers of the building site. There are some super prizes of book tokens for the two winning designs from each class.
Remember that the design must be bold enough to be eyecatching and highlight the potential dangers of the building site.
All of the winning designs will be copied to A3, laminated and fixed to the Heras fencing which will be all round the school as well as featuring on the website.
Pupils in P2a and P2b recently hosted a fantastic exhibition of their latest project work all about Dinosaurs. The event was enjoyed by many parents and carers who were able to attend. The exhibition included displays of paintings, sculptures and plenty of information about different Dinosaurs and their diets and habitats.
This superb mural, created by many of Pinkie St. Peter’s pupils, was unveiled today at Pinkie Farm Convenience Store. The mural depicts many scenes from local history. This fine artwork certainly brightens up the entrance for all visitors to the shop and highlights the artistic skills of Pinkie pupils.
All pupils were very kindly given a goodie bag by Pinkie Farm Shop, who are having a Kids Party tonight.
This term we have been learning about electricity.We have been creating our own circuits and testing materials to see if they are conductors or insulators. We have also been writing instructions so that we could teach someone else how to create a circuit.
Last week we had a talk from Powerwise. The speaker showed us lots of interesting pictures and objects, including an overhead line from the railway. Most importantly, he reminded us how dangerous electricity can be and gave us useful tips to help us to stay safe around it.
