8.1.20 The children have been very creative using the plus plus blocks to construct models, shapes and characters. They have also been very keen to make slime ( sorry parents 🙂 ) and have had lots of fun playing with it, while others have enjoyed creating a race track for their cars using pipes and guttering.
To celebrate the 30th birthday of the United Nations Rights of the Child, please enjoy a special day at school on Wednesday 20 November.
Come to school in your party clothes if you want to dress up!
Play some fun party games
Enjoy a special Celebration assembly with UNIKIDS.
Let’s have some fun as we remember all the UNCRC articles that we enjoy.
P5a are organising a collection for this year’s Blythswood appeal. We would be very grateful if we could have all shoeboxes handed into school by the 08.11.19.
Leaflets about the shoebox appeal, including a checklist of items, were sent home this week. Please let us know if you need any more information or anymore leaflets.
Thank you so much for your support!
From P5a and Miss MacArthur
This is an advance notice that we will be supporting this year’s Blythswood Shoebox Appeal.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us in the past. Last year we collected 55 shoeboxes and we would love to make this an extra special Christmas for those in need again this year.
This year Blysthswood will be collecting our filled Shoeboxes on Friday November the 8th. We would be very grateful if all donations could be handed into school by then. A checklist of suitable Christmas gifts to include in your shoebox will be going home on the first week of term.
Please help us to spread love and hope this Christmas.
This week Oliver and Cameron were teachers at OOSC. ” I enjoy being a teacher because I like being in control I now see how hard it is for the teachers its hard when people dont listen to you” by Cameron. “it was fun but it was also challenging when the other kids didnt listen to you” By oliver.
Outside fun at OOSC
Last week we discussed how to stay safe round the fire pit and the children enjoyed toasting their marshmallows.
10.9.19 – The children in OOSC watched a video of a family in Malawi, they found out about their way of living and what toys they have to play with. Before we watched the video the children were asked to write on a post it note what was important to them, after the video was finished they were asked the question what do they think is important to the children in Africa. Some of the answers of what is important to them were: my family, my friends, dogs, ipad, my bike, a life, pokemon cards, my cat, Mum and Dad, to be safe. Some of the answers of what is important to the children in Africa were: food, water, a home, friends, to be who you want to be, to have toys, to go to school, toilet and to have a life. The children then used lots of different materials to create their own toys such as a football, a house, cars and robots.
Sadly we will be saying goodbye to Mrs MacPherson next week as she has decided to leave her role as assistant in out of school club. She will be continuing as an EYP in nursery and we will still see her at breakfast club.
After Miss Macleod’s trip to Malawi in the summer holidays we have recently been learning about Africa and their culture. Today we made our own African musical instruments using different materials and African masks using clay.
