This week the pre-school children who are coming to our school in September went over to the main school and had their first experience of a school dinner. They all did exceptionally well and had a fun time. Well done boys and girls! 😁

The boys and girls absolutely loved our visit from Stephanie from Time Steps.  The session was very interactive and engaging.  She even wanted to trade one of our year 5 girls for a calf! Tempting, but I declined the offer 😅

We would highly recommend Time Steps and will definitely be using them for future topics.  It really brought our current topic to life for the boys and girls. 

The pictures provide a glimpse of just how much fun we had - so many giggles too!

Parents of Artigarvan Primary School and Community Nursery,

Our PTA would like to trial a Uniform Recycling System at the end of June. 

If anyone has any pieces of uniform that they no longer need if they could kindly remove their child’s name from the clothing and send to school before the term finishes on 29th June.

The PTA will sort all the items that have been sent into school and let you know how you can purchase items before we return for the new school year in September.

All items will cost £1/£2 and all money raised will go to school funds.

We know buying uniforms can be costly so this will be a good way to cut down the cost of purchasing uniforms while supporting our school at the same time. 

Thank you 😊

Here’s a little update from our greenhouse and planter: 

The weeds have been cleared and our sunflower seeds that we planted are coming along nicely (see the attached pictures).

We also planted some onions and spread some more wildflower seeds kindly gifted by the council. Families can call into the reception of the council offices and pick up their free pack of wildflower seeds (while stocks last). Thank you so much to the council for our seeds. 

In class Mrs Pollock read a lovely story about sunflowers 🌻 and told all the boys and girls about a famous sunflower painting by Vincent Van Gogh. The boys and girls then designed their own sunflower pictures using chalk based on the work of Van Gogh.

During term three our class have been reading ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. In this book George makes a number of medicines, all of which have different effects on the people that take them. On Friday Mr Campbell brewed some of his own concoctions for everyone to try. Have a look at the pictures below, can you tell that the children enjoyed these?

Today was Break the rules day in school.  The children loved being able to break some of our school rules. 

They were allowed to: 

1.Wear their own clothes

2. Have crazy hair

3. Bring an unhealthy snack

4. Come to school late

 

The children had lots of fun and we managed to raise lots of money that will go towards our school funds. 

Thanks everyone for your support and most of all thank you for having fun!!

Last week we finished off our length topic by finding the area and perimeter of some delicious, well know biscuits.  The children all worked so well with their study buddies during this activity.   Might have something to do with being allowed to eat the biscuits at the end 🤣
