Remembrance Assembly and Poppy Display

We have been learning about WW1 for Remembrance Day . We did an assembly about it. And we did the poppy display for the school and we made some of them.  We made the poppies from plastic bottles. In school we made acrostic poems with the word POPPIES. And for maths we have been doing measurement and we measured the corridor with meter sticks and trundle wheels. (by Elsie and James).

Some of the pupils came in their uniforms today. This was as part of Remembrance Day.

We had  a Space Junk workshop at World of Work and programmed lego models which could collect “junk”. We watched  a short film about Clyde Space, a space technology company near Glasgow, who make satellites which weigh only 4 kg. Thank you to our parent helper.

P6/7 – Remembrance Poppies

In the lead up to Remembrance Sunday, and as part of our art for our World War One topic, P6/7 have been busy making poppies to be included in our whole school display.

As we are an ECO friendly school we chose to use recycled plastic bottles to create our poppies. Once we had carefully cut out our desired poppy shapes we used acrylic paint and sharpie to create our realistic looking flowers. We think they are really eye-catching and will be a great addition to the display.

When we tweeted our pictures we even got a retweeted from Poppy Scotland!

ELC – Important Letters

We have been made aware that sometimes these letters do not always make it home.  Either they have fallen out of little hands or taken out of trays through the day and got lost.  With this in mind, we will have a list of all current important letters/information up on the board in the ELC cloakroom.  We will also continue to put them into trays and remind children and parents to check trays daily.

The most recent letter regarding the intergenerational work at the care home is in trays today, on the board and a copy is attached here.  If you have any questions, please speak to a member of the ELC.
