News4U Episode 2 – New Pupils

Welcome back to News4U, this week we talk to a number of new pupils; Kuba, Pola and Jordon.

Every year a new group of P7 pupils take over in the Pod. Over the year, we learn new skills in terms of learning how to use recording equipment, how to conduct interviews and narrate the episodes. It’s a learning process. We start with simple stuff and build up. This year is no exception. Week by week our podcasts will get better.So enjoy this week’s and stay tuned.

Here at Pinkie, we have been doing some amazing work over the last few years in the Pod…from podcasts, fantastic photo displays and some interesting short films. And we have been proud to share our learning on this blog, Twitter and YouTube. This year, we have even more interesting projects that we would like to do right across the school.

However, we need your permissions, right across the school,  to include everyone in these projects.  A form was sent out and it’s vital that it is returned. Thanks again for your help. And, as always, my door is open. If you want to discuss any of these topics, please get in touch via email in the first instance: csmith@edubuzz.org . Thanks again for your help.

We need your help!

The school has successfully run a Book Fair twice a year for many years and our next Fair arrives in a few weeks time on Monday 8 October .

The Fairs are always hugely supported by children and parents who have enjoyed the wide range of books for sale .As a school we have also benefitted greatly from thousands of pounds worth of free books we have received from commission.

We need parent volunteers to run our Fair at the start and the end of the day so children and parents can visit . Parents Evenings are taking place whilst the Fair is here too and it would be fantastic if we could have it open on both evenings for everyone to visit.

If you are able to spare any time over that week to help out please contact the school office by Friday 21 September or speak to MrsDixon directly for more information,Opening times have not been arranged yet  as we can be flexible with this and work round what suits our volunteers best.

Thanks in advance for your support with this .
