PJ Day

We were supporting Children in Need a week early this year by having a PJ day in the school and nursery.  Everyone looked great dressed in their Pjs and onesies!  We managed to raise £90 so thank you to everyone who donated.  

Ciara Wilson came in to talk to us at assembly today about what she is doing for Children in Need.  She is a driving instructor and is taking part in the "Big Learner Relay."  The relay sees driving instructors around the UK, passing a Children in Need top box - mounted on the car's roof - from one driving lesson to another.  Ciara will be taking part form Luss to the Drovers Inn at the weekend.  Today the children got to write good luck messages and pictures on the spots on her car.

"Foolish Friday"

On Friday 1st April the Globe Trotters organised "Foolish Friday".  Pupils were asked to give a £1 donation to come to school dressed up in a silly way.  It was all good fun and many strange outfits were worn.  The Globe Trotters also had a children's raffle which was well supported. An incredible £147 was raised.  This amount along with money raised from recent Rag Bag collections and the Christmas toy stall will be sent to Kleinbooi School in South Africa.  Well done Globe Trotters.

Childline workshop

Yesterday our class had a workshop from Childline which was very interesting.

First we were introduced to the lady from Childline who was doing the workshop with us who was called Rose. She then put on a slideshow about Childline. We were told about what Childline does and how they help children. After that we did a quiz in which we were given a statement about what is right to do and what is wrong. We then had to put our thumbs up or down depending on whether we agreed or not. We then had another quiz like the one before about sexual abuse. Once we had finished that we were shown a video about a boy called Guy and his life. Guy was neglected, left out in school and was really unhappy and grumpy. Then one day he called Childline who gave him some help soon after that he had more friends and was more happy so everyone liked him and accepted him more. Once we had discussed the video we were given out small activity packs called buddy packs that had a fortune teller, a certificate for completing the workshop and a sheet about what makes you feel happy and safe. Then Rose left and we worked on our activity packs.

Primary 7 Sports Relief Topic

Over the last week primary 7 have been learning about Sports Relief for our topic.
It has been a fun experience because we were doing a posters and leaflets and researching all about the different things to do with Sports Relief. You will all see it at the spring show where we will have a stall. It was really fun doing all that. 
The leaflets contain information about sports relief like their aim and who it benefits and other interesting facts.
