P6 and P7 pupils welcomed a special Visitor from the Scottish Parliament this week.
The children learned what matters are devolved in Scotland and the names of the major Scottish parties. They took part in a debate about the speed limit near schools.
Their votes will be presented to the debating chamber.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and supported our first ‘Movie Night’. There was such a lovely atmosphere and it has certainly helped us feel more festive!
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to David from HCVF for providing us with the most amazing screen and technology for our event, completely free of charge! Thank you to David and Gordon for coming along, setting it all up and coming back to pick it up this morning. We are very grateful! http://www.hcvf.co.uk
HCVF have been extremely kind and have offered to let us borrow the screen and equipment next week at our second showing on Wednesday 12th December.
Tickets are still available to purchase.
Tickets cost £2 (popcorn and a juice is included in the cost)
Doors open at 6.15pm. Film will begin at 6.30pm, finishing approximately 8pm.
All welcome 🙂
If you don’t have a slip just write a note with name, class and how many tickets and send into school next week, along with payment.
Thank you very much for all of your support! The P7s have now fundraised over £1000!
Last week we had a special guest in our class – Mrs Eckersley. She taught us about British Airways. We learned about the cabin crew and about pilots. The cabin crew get free mosquitoes protection and if they spray it on their tights it actually melts there tights cause that’s how strong it is. We also learned that if you are a member of cabin crew you will get 2 free travels each year. There are few people that die or get really sick on the plain here – some people get heart attacks, strokes, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, diabetes and lots of other reasons.
At the wing of the plane there are bunkbeds for the cabin crew when they rest. Some pregnant people give birth on the plane, this is not that common because the latest they can board a plane is at 37 weeks pregnant. Sometimes there are 4 pilots and there usually hard to keep them amused.
We got water and popcorn because people get a snack while they are travelling. We were learning about people travelling in the plane and the skills you need to have to apply for the job. Mrs Eckersley told us about the countries she has visited – the best one for her is Bermuda. She was also showing all the money from their country.
