Saltoun Christmas special

On Thursday 14th December 2017 Saltoun Primary School had a Christmas concert night and if you weren’t there to see it I am about to tell you all about it.

First there was the wonderful primary 1/2 Nativity about an extremely grumpy camel named Humphry but his friends and family called him humph because he was so grumpy that all he ever  said was  HUMPH! The nativity was narrated by Willow,Pippa and Sophie and I cannot forget the wonderful camels Humph (Jessica) camel number 1 (Thomas) and camel number 2 (Sophie I)

Second we had the primary 4/5 violinists Poppy,Brodie,Livi and Melodie. They played Snowflakes and Silent Night. It was truly amazing! I know that I could never play the violin far less play those 2 very complicated songs.

Next we had the p6/7 violinists who played Good King Wenceslas  and Little Donkey, it was outstanding.

Then we had the primary 3 and 4s who sung Silent Night which BSL  which stands for British Sign Language and also with  BSL they sung When Santa got stuck up the Chimney.

Second last I took part in the primary 5/6/7 Christmas choir who sung Rocking around the Christmas Tree whith BSL and our last song was Feliz Navidad with some percussion instruments. I was kind of nervous but I tried my hardest not to show it and it certainly paid off.

Last we had the raffle draw, there were lots of prizes to be won, so well done to some of our luck winners! This year we did not win a prize.

Pupil’s Plant Planters

Today Eden Young’s mum and grandpa came into school to help all the children plant their planters.   Before the Easter holidays the children across the whole school individually decorated pots and chose the fruit and/or vegetables that they wished to grow.  Today was planting day!

The children will be responsible for looking after their own pots, making sure their plants have enough water, appropriate amount of sunlight, etc.

A big ‘Thank You’ to Lee and Tom for giving up their morning to help everyone.  We are all looking forward to a bumper harvest of strawberries, blackcurrants, carrots, leeks, etc. later in the year.
