On Friday we celebrated the 250th anniversary of Rabbie Burns birth by reciting poetry and singing songs. We then tasted shortbread and scottish raspberry crush. Yum! We would also like to thank Murdo’s dad (Mr Fraser), for playing a selection of Scottish songs on his fiddle.

On Monday P4/5/6/7 were lucky enough to take part in African drumming. We learned about dance, movement, rhythm and voice. It was a great afternoon which lead to us performing to the p1/2/3’s and their parents. P4/5/6/7 said they loved it and would like to thank Dougie, who taught them lots of new skills.
Just a reminder that for the February holidays we break up on Friday 6th February at normal time and children return on Tuesday 17th February. We can’t believe how quickly these holidays have come around! Hope everyone has a great time.
We have been learning about why having clean water is so important for us and also that not all children are so fortunate. As a class, we decided to have a charity event and try to raise as much money as we can for WaterAid. We have registered with the charity online and they have a really useful website, which you can find from our links.
Come along on Friday 6th February at 11am. Park your car in the school car park for a car wash organised and managed by Pete Jardine (our old Janitor) then come inside and have a coffee, whilst purusing our second hand toys and book stall.
We hope to see as many of you as possible! There will be posters and fliers coming your way.

As usual at Saltoun we are celebrating Rabbie Burn’s birthday. Each child has a verse to learn for our Poetry Recital Competition on Friday 23rd January. Each year group is also learning a song and we will sing them after our Burn’s Supper on the same morning. If possible, pupils should try to wear a piece of tartan.
Next Parent Council Meeting is Thursday 29th January at 7.30pm. All welcome!
