Well done to everyone who contributed to Red Nose Day. We managed to raise £430.90! Thanks to the fundraising group for helping to organise everything.
All of the classes were practising Tai Chi with a man called Douglas. Some fell over, some stood up strong. Some were doing it fast and others slow. It was really cool, fun and a bit of exercise for us children. We had to do it well because at the end of the week we all had to do it as a school. I wonder if Chinese kids would do Highland dancing?

Last week we had two people called Monica and Wendy to talk about Chinese New Year and how they celebrate it. On Chinese New Year some children get given red envelopes if they have been good. They celebrate with lots of bright colours like red, gold and orange. Katie C & Danielle P6
On Tuesday we had a whole day of Chinese things and traditions like origami and Chinese dancing with fans and torches. At the start of the day we watched a video of the New Year. Then we learned about what the Chinese people get for Christmas. They get an envelope with money in it. After that we did origami and it was difficult. Rachel, Emily & Jemma P4
Our class (P6) invited P1/2 to our class. We had shortbread and ice tea and oatcakes and we sang Auld Lang Syne. Aniee G sang a poem and played a couple of tunes on her fiddle. Phoebe also played a couple of tunes on her fiddle and Rhea played a song on her chanter. I read a poem about the Loch Ness Monster. Leah & Struan P6
Well done to Callum M in P5 who had his wonderful piece of Titanic writing read out in assembly. What a fantastic job you did, Callum!
