Children in Need is on Friday and P5a and P5b have organised lots of fun activities and games to raise money for this fabulous cause. There will also be a ‘Dress Down Day’ on Friday for a donation of £1. There will also be a bake stall and raffle. Any donations of baking (no items containing nuts please) or items for our raffle would be gratefully received. Please send in any items of baking, or prizes, into school by Friday. Thank you very much!
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the Parent Council for giving our class some money. We have spent half of it… on a CD player, Nessie book and Nessie soft toy. We are using them as content for writing this term. We gave our French partner school the same Nessie book and toy. Our boys and girls liked them and asked if they could write their own Nessie story and do some Nessie art. Yes, we can!
Here are 2 more fabulous Hallowe’en costumes which got missed out last week…sorry girls!
Bonjour! Welcome back to our next term. Hope you had a good October break. I spent a week of mine in Paris and Versaille, visiting our partner school, Ecole Des Sources, in Linas, Versaille. The French children loved the Nessie toy, storybook and shortbread we gave them. Our children also made a Scotland flag from recycled materials for them. They are excited to hear about and see pictures of what life in Scotland is like and I am excited to use French more in the classroom!
Mrs Wilson and I have changed our days slightly so from this week on, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays will be Mrs Wilson and I will be doing Thursdays and Fridays.
We will be sharing our learning overview with you later this week.
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.
Here are some photos of our artwork from this term. We have been reading Roald Dahl books so created pictures of Mr Twit and Fantastic Mr Fox. We also painted some abstract autumn trees.
We wish you a very warm welcome to P3 life! This week we made our class charter using our rights and we chose our class reps. Photos to follow next week.
Our project this term is an Enterprise Activity. To help prepare us, we had a team-building afternoon where the aim was to build a bridge to hold a toy car. Each team member could only touch their material and together plan and build the bridge. Every team was successful in the build and could talk about how they got on working as team.
