Tradey Treats and P2 News

Tradey Treats Update

So far ‘Tradey Treats’ has made over £400.  Remember, we are open for P1-3 on Tuesdays and P4-7 on Wednesdays at morning break.  We still have Geobars and apple juice to sell and soon we will be taste testing some new Fairtrade foods to sell in our shop.  P2 and P6 hope to see you there soon!
Later in the term, we will be making a Fairtrade Cookbook.  In the meantime – why not practice cooking something tasty using Fairtrade ingredients!

P2 Make the News

As part of their ongoing Fairtrade work, Primary Two have featured in articles in two Scottish newspapers this week; The Scotsman and the Dalkeith Advertiser.  The articles show how much work the school has done towards becoming a Fairtrade School.  You can read these articles here:

Class News

P2 have had a lovely Easter holiday and are now raring to go into the Summer term.  We are going to be looking at People Who Help Us and Growing Plants this term.  We have just organised ourselves into new teams to work together to complete lots of activities to help us find out about all of the people who can help us.  There are lots of people and to start, we are going to find out about the Emergency services.   You can find out about what different Emergency people wear by clicking here: http://www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk/vtc/ngfl/ngflflash/isf_97/whatdotheywear/what_do_they_wear.html See if you can match all the clothes correctly!  We have also talked about how a lifeguard can help us.

Everyone is very excited about the Royal Wedding this week.  We have made some lovely symmetrical Crowns and have carefully written invitations to the wedding for our parents. We also designed our own special plates showing the date that William and Catherine are getting married.
