Dear parent / s
We are sorry to inform you that due to a power failure in the School Kitchen last night the meal for today (Tuesday 17 November) has had to be changed.
Today’s meal will consist of:
The Menu will return to normal again tomorrow.
Sincere apologies on behalf of the Kitchen.
Today was Children in Need day and we also marked the start of Anti-bullying week. It was great to see all the boys and girls coming to school wearing their odd socks. Thank you for your kind donation to Children in Need.
Back in September / October of Term 1 our school participated in the London Mini Marathon Event which entailed covering a distance of 2.6 miles over a specified period of time.
We have been very fortunate to be one of the schools to receive medals for every pupil in the school who completed this distance.
We are thrilled to have achieved this as a whole school.
Anti-bullying (Alliance NI) week begins on Mon 16 November with this year’s theme being ‘United Against Bullying.’
As well as several in class activities on Monday 16 November we will be joining schools all over the UK to spread awareness of Anti-Bullying by wearing odd socks to school (with normal school uniforms).
We are also aware that Friday 13 November is Children in Need Day. Therefore, we plan to celebrate Children in Need Day on Monday 16 November by wearing odd socks.
If you wish to make a donation to the Children in Need charity, simply send the money into the class teacher on Monday 16 November and we will pass all donations on to the BBC Children in Need appeal.

Today saw a very different Remembrance Day within school.
Even though we couldn’t come together in the Assembly Hall, the children were able to sing a hymn and listen to the Remembrance Assembly via their Interactive Whiteboards. The significance of the Poppy emblem and the day itself were explained.
Primary 7 Mrs Sloan’s class came to the village War Memorial to place the school’s wreath at the base of the clock tower too. The oldest boy and girl from the school placed the wreath on behalf of the school.
Primary 2 had lots of fun making tasty pumpkin biscuits. We made orange icing and decorated our own biscuit using lovely sweet treats. The best part was taking them home to eat.
This term, Primary Seven have been connecting with electricity! We have been working in partnerships to construct a simple circuit, adding a switch and a buzzer, and then making our own version of a sensor pad.
We also have been learning about Victorian Transport and have discovered the history of the sailing ships which crossed the world in the 1800's to deliver wool to Australia and then to return with expensive cargo of tea. We have been composing diary entries of a sailor working on one of these ships and then have been using ICT to present and display our work in the classroom.
P3 & P4 enjoyed using the beautiful autumn leaves to create their own leaf creatures. I think you will agree they are fantastic.
