On Wednesday 9th March our Fairtrade group organised a Fairtrade Breakfast to raise money. The whole school, with help from the parents attending raise a lot of money for Fairtrade. Mrs Hunter organised the event and the Fairtrade team members led the Assembly. P4 had created their own Fairtrade song and it was very funny!
Each class participated in a competition to design a tea pot, mug or cup and we used these to decorate the assembly hall.
We will add photos very soon!

Please remember that World Book Day 2016 is on Thursday 3rd March. On Thursday, Mrs Matthews will be ringing a bell throughout the day. Each time the bell goes off we will be picking up our books and reading until the bell sounds again! Then on Friday you should come to school dressed as your favourite character from a book.
Our whole school had the opportunity to learn to line dance this afternoon.
Thank you to the A7 Stompers for teaching us a routine, we all had a great time!
P5 have been working on developing a growth mindset. The class were inspired by using pop music and evaluating the lyrics. They then decided to use their favourite song ‘The Climb’ to create a display to help remind them every time they enter the classroom about the need to be positive.
Every Friday each child is asked to reflect on their week considering what has went well and what they need to work on. We think about how we can move forward with our learning. Here are some pictures of P2 and P6 working on their reflective journals.
