Fiddler On The Roof

Nobody point out that our first show is 3 weeks on Monday!

Rehearsals are going well, thank you so much to every pupil who has committed to this and turned up after school.

Mrs Mclean has sent costume suggestion sheets out to all cast members asking for families to try and source as much as they can; anything which you can’t get please get in touch soon and we’ll raid the Heritage Trail box!

The show itself will be performed on the 25th and 26th at 7pm at the Barony Theatre in Bo’ness.  Tickets will cost  £6 pounds each and will be limited to 4 per child.  A family ticket costing £20 will be available; this must be for either the Monday or the Tuesday (not split over the two nights) and will count as a child’s full allocation.

Any extra unsold tickets will be allocated from a waiting list on a first come, first served basis.  Order forms will be sent home soon!

 

P7 Personal Project 2018

Yay, it’s here! volcano-clip-art-121

Today P7 were given their project information sheets.  We have stressed that this does NOT mean they have to start working during the holidays! It’s simply to give them plenty of thinking time before beginning this task after the February week.

Linked to our Japan theme, the Natural Disasters project should be a final showcase of their functional  reading and writing skills, and every pupil is expected to put effort in to this.

Here is a copy of the paperwork should yours go missing…

December chat

It’s amazing that we are nearly halfway through the year  already!  The children have dancingbeen working really hard right across the curriculum, while taking onthe duties of P7 well.

Since the beginning of November we have been at Benmore, had Parents’ Evenings, welcomed Pudsey to a Strictly Assembly, been immunised against the flu, learned about the Old Testament during Bible Alive presentations and helped at the Christmas Fair! And this is all as well as the Number Talk numeracy, improving our reading and writing and the Remebrance and Friction work we have been investigating.

And what’s coming up? Next week we’ll attend the P1-3 Nativity (not the staff one…) and are looking forward to Macastory’s Festive Friday show, The Frost Giant 2 – The Mirror of Malice.  Don’t forget your winter jumpers!

On 18th December our violinists will entertain us with a concert and Wednesday 20th December is…our ceilidh!
We have hired a 6 piece band for this event, and the children are encouraged to dress well for this.  More grown up than a “just” party they will dance with the invited guests and take part in games.
We also ask that each child brings something for the buffet table – enough for themselves and one other or tow others, not all 55 pupils! – and will ask them for their ideas in advance to prevent 55 plates of sausage rolls which, while delicious, have finite appeal…

Term will end after the church service on Friday 22nd December at 12 noon.  Then we’ll see you are the break for 2018!
