World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March 2017

As part of our World Book Day celebrations we invite children to dress as their favourite character from a book (fictional or real). There are lots of suggestions on the World Book Day website on how to make “budget beating” costumes. We fully support this and remind parents that costumes do not need to be bought. We look forward to seeing your ideas. There will be a prize for the best costume in each class. The children that are at Satrosphere in the morning may take a costume to change into when they return to school.

We will also be encouraging pupils to take part in our reading challenge. Are you an Extreme Reader?

Books can be read anywhere and everywhere!
We are inviting you ALL (including parents!) to take part in our extreme reading challenge.

Think about different, exciting, fun and SAFE places you can enjoy a book.

Photographs should be emailed to shamacdonald@aberdeencity.gov.uk or kirstanderson@aberdeencity.gov.uk. Alternatively pictures can be printed off and sent into school.

All entries will be uploaded to our website under the tab – Extreme Reading Challenge. All entries should be submitted by Thursday 2nd March.

All children were issued with the First Minister’s Reading Challenge note book to record what they have been reading. Ask your child to bring them on World Book Day. Prizes awarded for the children who have read the most books.

Bring and Swap. We will be holding a bring and swap stand during World Book Day where children may come and drop a book off they are finished reading and swap it for another.

National School Breakfast Week 6th March – 10th March 2017

We all know the importance of breakfast especially for children before a busy day at school. Children who fuel up in the morning by eating breakfast before heading off to school gain many benefits, both mental and physical. They also have better concentration during school hours than children who skip the morning meal.

As part of National School Breakfast we would like to offer breakfast to our pupils on Tuesday 7th March, Wednesday 8th March and Thursday 9th March.

A range of cereals and fruit will be available. Pupils that would like breakfast should come to the hall between 8.30am- 8.45am and bring 50p per breakfast session attended. Children should enter via the wildlife door.

Comic Relief – Friday 24th March

We will be supporting Comic Relief by asking children to wear something red for a donation. There will be activities ongoing throughout the day, including designing a handprint mural. Children will also get the chance to attend a comedy show, organised by p4/5. This will be for pupils only.

Rotakids Raffle

The Rotakids are raising money for the Thailand Volunteer Project which Miss McFarlane will be supporting in summer. They will be selling raffles for a box of children’s toys for all ages. Raffle tickets cost 10p or 50p a strip. Tickets will be on sale from 6th – 10th March. The raffle will be drawn on the 19th March.
