Coldingham Newsletter 19 February 2018

Exciting news!

Last month, P567 entered the annual ‘Farmhouse Breakfast’ writing competition. We are delighted to announce that our class has won a place in the finals. This means that not only are they in for ‘the big prize’, they have won a £50 book token for the school AND a cooked breakfast prepared in school. We are so proud of our pupils.

Playground update

Following a successful bid for funding from Drone Hill Windfarm, we will be receiving some new playground apparatus over the coming weeks. The new items should provide our pupils with different play opportunities. Our thanks to the Drone Hill committee.

Primary 1/2

We have been watching the space walk; live from a space station above Earth. Astronauts wear heavy suits. The suits are white and big. Astronauts wear a jet pack and gloves. Space is exciting! We made puppets of Plop the Owl and let him meet a new friend to help him not be afraid of the dark. It was fun and we all used ‘big ‘words.
