Pinocchio Panto

Today we had a great time at the panto.  We watched Pinnochio and enjoyed singing and joining in with the rest of the school.

Many thanks to our fabulous Parent Council who paid for M and M productions to come and perform for us.  The performance enabled us to take part in a cultural activity which is Article 31 of the UN Convention on Rights of the Child.

Thank you for giving us a great day at Inshes Primary.

Aldi Sports Stickers update

A huge thank you to everyone who helped contribute to the stickers for the Aldi Kit for Schools challenge. We had a huge amount of stickers that came in from Nursery to P7.

We managed to complete not one but 2 of their posters and these were sent off last week to be entered into the prize draw to win £20,000 as well as hopefully getting some sports kits for school.

We will keep you posted to let you know if we win – so fingers crossed everyone 🙂

Scholastic Book Fair arriving Tuesday 5.11.19

book fairThe Book fair will be in school on Tuesday 5th November.   This is a great opportunity for children to have a look at a wide range of books to find their favourites.  You should also have received a Book Fair booklet via schoolbag mail on Monday 4th November.

Pupils will have the opportunity to buy books from Tuesday 5th November as each class will be visiting the Book Fair with their teacher.  There will be additional opportunities for parents to buy books on the two Parents’ Evenings on the 12th and 14th November.  If you would like to buy books on these evenings and want to pay by cheque, please make them payable to Inshes Primary School.  Friday 15th November will be the last opportunity for pupils to buy items from the Book Fair.

Every book that we sell at the Book Fair helps the school to receive free books that can be used to supplement class and school libraries.  This helps encourage children to read as there will be a greater selection to choose from.

We look forward to your support during this event.
