4,000,000 words!

Over 4,000,000 words have been read this term by P4-7.  We set this ambitious target in April: we read in our teams, as a class and in our personal time. We were rewarded with a pink lemonade and glazed doughnut party.  This was the food and drink that Basil Wrathbone fed his victims in our class novel.  It sounded delicious and today it tasted delicious but thankfully it didn’t turn us into plastic toys as it did the characters in the novel.  Well done P4-7 so proud of you, special mention to Dylan who personally read over 1,000,000.

MP Visits Saltoun Primary

As part of our global citizenship project “Send My Friend to School” we had a visit from Mrs Fiona O’Donnell (MP).  We have been working on messages to send David Cameron and other world leaders on the issue of “Education for All”  We prepared presentations, refreshments(delicious smoothies) and questions.  Murdo P4 remarked: “she was down to earth”.  Another pupil commented on the fact they felt their opinion was heard.  Fiona told us about her work on this campaign and about her job in Westminster.  We grilled her with questions and she even told us her favourite sweet. You will need to ask someone from P4-7 for Fiona’s response!
