Fruity Friday

Just a reminder that the Health and Wellbeing Group will be running a ‘Fruity Friday’ Competition starting on Friday 17th May.  We are encouraging the eating of healthier snacks and hope that your child will bring a piece of fruit for snack each Friday.  Each class will be provided with a chart and those children who bring fruit will be marked on the chart.  At the end of term the class with the most fruit brought will get a reward.

The Health and Wellbeing Group hope that you can support us with this initiative.

For launch day tomorrow there will be a table of fruit at the front of the school.  The fruit has been kindly donated by the Co-op.

Thank you for your continued support

Miss Tough, Mrs Greenhill, Mrs Smith

and the Health and Wellbeing Group.

The winners of the House Points Prize this term are Burnbanks.  Well done to them!  The prize will be outside games and some Easter treats on Friday between 11am and 12am.  Children who are in Burnbanks are allowed to come to school in their own clothes (no football clothes please).  Please ensure that they are dressed to play outside.  Any children who have dietary requirements will be accommodated with appropriate alternatives for treats.

Appeal for junk for junk modelling

One of the popular Golden Time activities for P1-3 is Junk Modelling.  Unfortunately we are running rather low in junk so instead of putting your junk in the recycling could we please have it?  It is better to have things that the children can cut and paint or glue can stick to so no hard plastic bottles /boxes please.

Any junk brought in should be given to the P7 children in the Yellow Unit.

Thank you very much in advance.
