Building The Future

This year’s Science Day was based on Architecture because this year is the International Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.
We all came to school dressed as builders or buildings. (I also saw an interior designer and two lady architects; Odile Deq and Zaha Hadid)
We each bought in £1 which will be donated to Article 25. They are a charity named after Article 25 of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which shows that adequate, dignified buildings and housing are fundamental to our human rights. Registered Charity Number: 1112621

The day began and finished with presentations from real life architects; Jill and Graham. Thank you sooooooo very much to absolutely everyone who helped , it was a truly memorable day.

Paired reading

Every Wednesday since the Christmas Break the P1-3 and P6-7 classes have enjoyed a 30 minute “reading together” session. Research has proven that peered reading can help towards greater attainment in reading, better social interactions and improvement in higher order questioning. The children involved have mostly welcomed the idea and look forward to sharing their stories with their reading partners.

It’s panto time!!!

From Nursery to P7, Hopscotch productions kept the children (and adults!) thoroughly encapsulated with their witty and vibrant performance of Sleeping Beauty.

Poor Princess Rosie was tricked by the evil Red Fairy to prick her finger and sleep for One Hundred Years but thanks to Lester the Jester and the kind White Fairy (and the help of our children!) they managed to break the spell.  Pheww!! and we all lived happily ever after…..100_0078 100_0084 100_0091 100_0090 100_0102 100_0132 100_0140

 

P6/7 Have a new blog for you to follow!

Our latest class project is all about crofting. So that we don’t fill up the school website with our work, Ms Francis has created a totally separate blog for our activities to be recorded on. Click the Mini Crofters logo (Which Reece created!) below for you to follow if you’re interested!
