P6 were delighted to find out they were the winners of the “Act Crafty” competion. The judges were very impressed with our “fantastic” models – which were all made from natural materials and represented local landmarks or scenes. With our £250 prize money we will be funding our “Crafty Christmas” enterprise and hope to put proceeds of this towards a great school trip and school funds.
This term Mrs Simeones P7/6 class has been learning about reporting news, gathering news, and writing news. Recently we were put into four groups and had to create our own news bulletins they had to include a sports report, a weather report, an entertainment report and three general news reports. The four groups worked really hard and succeeded. Now we are creating a class news bulletin about our schools past, present and future. Our final News Bulletin will be shown on our Schools Open Day.
