This week we were informed that we had been very successful in the recent Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ competition, we came 1st!!!!!
We will receive some money that we can now use to create our ‘Secret Garden’. Once completed, this garden will be used as an outdoor classroom, as well as a quiet place for pupils to use during the school day.We will begin in the New Year, the work needed to transform this plan into a reality. Thank you to everyone who supported us by putting their blue tokens into the Ednam perspex box.

“A New School Year”
We started back at school on 15th August. I found it hard to get out of bed, but I was excited about being a P2. We have some new children in our class this year in P1.
When we got to school we found that our teachers had been busy making new areas in our classroom. We have a “Listening Area” where we can listen to stories on CD. My favourite is “Gangsta Granny” by David Walliams.
We also have a new keyboard to play music on. We have a sensory tray which has different things in it, like aqua beads and toy animals. They are great! My favourite part of the class is the reading area as you get to learn to read which helps us when we are older.
In P5-7, we welcomed some new P5’s who have settled in nicely.
Mrs McIntosh has created an additional “chill out zone” in the spare classroom which we use at choice times, for house captain meetings, reading and other activities. We are very lucky to have it. We also have a new group work area, Library and comfy seats.
P1-4 have also been on a visit to a mosque in Galashiels. When we arrived we went to the kitchen. There were lots of cups and jugs. Then we all went upstairs where we had to take our shoes off, but left our socks on. This was so it didn’t get messy, so that it was clean when they prayed. We made mosque puzzles and then climbed to another floor where we were given party bags.
We hope you enjoyed our reports and look out for our next report about activities and visits we have had.
