Here’s a news update from Primary 1 telling you all about what they have been learning and their upcoming shared start sessions
Primary 1 March news
P4x thoroughly enjoyed Fair Trade fortnight through learning about Fair Trade in Brazil. We studied the fascinating country of Brazil and learned about cotton and many fruits which are produced there. P4x are really concerned about the people working in Brazil who are still not being given a fair price for their products and hard work. Each child also gave a fantastic talk about Brazil and tasted lots of fruit which is grown there. You can ask us anything about the country now!
We have now begun to discover the Vikings and learn all about their lives, which has already been really fun and interesting. We were able to start the topic in an exciting way with a visit from Archaeology Scotland where we were able to make our very own Rune pendants and even took part in an archaeological dig to find Viking artefacts. It was fantastic! I am sure you will hear lots more about the Vikings next time…
Here’s the March Newsletter telling you all about the results of the Book Fair Competition, the Fairtrade Fashion Show, Comic Relief and much much more.
We have been busy finding out about Fair Trade Coffee during Fair Trade Fortnight. Some of us got the chance to taste different types of coffee. Most of us gave it the thumbs down! During the project, we visited Tesco to see what kinds of Fair Trade products they sold, where they came from and how it compares in price. We were suprised to find that it often wasn’t much more expensive!
P3x have also done a great job on their Assembly. Working with the P7 Junior Road Safety Officers, P3x became honorary Mini-JRSOs for the day and helped to share messages about choosing safe places to play and choosing safe points to cross, all the while remembering to Stop, Look, Listen and Think.
We’re just starting to look at Forces as our next topic. We’ll be learning about pushing and pulling, gravity, friction and magnets! We’re all looking forward to doing some experiments. We’re also about to start a Maths In Context focus which will be all about money and involve practical real-life style problems.
A fantastic £650 was raised for Comic Relief. Well done to P5Y and P5X for leading the way and thanks to everyone who baked, donated and had some fun.
Next meeting is Monday 21st March at 7pm in the Staff Room. Everyone welcome.
Here’s the latest news from the Eco Committee with a reminder about Earth Hour on 26th March.

The Lasswade Lions recently played a match against Hopefield Primary. The game was a great test at the beginning going behind 3 – 0 but the boys showed good team spirit and played really well to win 6 – 3.
This team has the ability to be successful in all the upcoming tournament we enter. Well done boys.
