Fruit Troops

fruit troops

P1-4 has been working on an enterprise topic this week. They created a company “Fruit Troops” which provided tubs of fruit for sale every playtime this week. They prepared the fruit tubs and took orders before selling them to staff and pupils at playtimes. The money raised will go in the “Lion King” pot.Well done P1-4.

Military Museum

On Monday 17th February P4-7 pupils travelled to Wilkieston to visit the Military Museum as part of their topic on World War Two.

The pupils and staff had a great day there. After an initial look around the museum the pupils did an alphabet quiz. This involved them looking around the museum for clues. After lunch the pupils were able to try on real gas masks and handle weapons. This was great fun for the pupils.

This was a fabulous outing and the pupils got lots of information to help them with their topic.
