RECYCLE YOUR CRISP PACKETS
Every year countless pieces of crisp packets end up in landfill sites across the UK.
We are working with TerraCycle® to put an end to this enormous loss of resources.
The Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme allows us to recycle your crisp packets and prevent them from ending up in landfill.
Not only are you helping the environment, but the waste you recycle with us also helps to fund schools or organisations.
We will be collecting crisp packets until 1st of April. The children attended a short assembly today to hear all about it and know where to put their packets. Some pupils from P6 will collect these at break and lunch time.

A very big thank you to all the museum staff for hosting P1 and P1/2 pupils at their Dinosaur exhibition. They gave us a lot information about Dinosaurs during our visits on Tuesday and Thursday.
The highlight was definitely the clay “fossil” footprint that we made and to discovered that some of the fossils in the Exhibition were found on The Isle of Skye, Scotland.
We used our looking and listening skills to spot many different things during our visit. There was lots of information shared and questions asked.
Thanks also to the parent helpers who came along with us and helped keep us safe on our trip.
Here are a few pictures of serious palaeontologists at work 😉
Don´t forget to share your highlights of the trip with your family.
