PAIRED READING – On Thursday 30th November P6/7 began their paired reading with a buddy in P1/2.  It was a very productive session and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.  This is part of the P6/7 Health & Wellbeing studies, teaching skills including empathy and social interaction with younger children.

NSPCC VISIT – On Monday 27th November, the NSPCC visited our school and held two assemblies for P1-P4 and P5-P7.  P6/7 were then involved in workshops discussing issues such as neglect, domestic abuse, physical and emotional abuse and sexual abuse. The children held a very mature discussion and enjoyed their session.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING – On Friday 29th September P6/7 hosted their annual Macmillan Coffee Morning for the pupils, parents and friends of Gourdon School.  There was a wonderful turnout and an enjoyable morning was had by all involved.  The P6/7 children sold toys, bric-a-brac,, books and cake and candy.  Children were able to have a shot in the lucky dip and try their luck with the chocolate tombola.  They also guessed the number of sweeties in a jar and Dougal, the Giant Teddy’s Birthday as well as other fun filled activities.  All the children in the school dressed in green in support of the charity.  P6/7 worked extremely hard in the planning, preparation and carrying out of activities on the day of the coffee morning.  A fantastic total of £1397.58 was raised, another Gourdon School record.  Mrs Christie was very proud of her class for their enthusiasm and effort.

MONTROSE AIR HERITAGE CENTRE – The last day of the first term saw P6/7 visit the Air Heritage Centre in Montrose.  This visit was topic related and the children were able to participate in a hands on experience at the museum.  The pupils tried on war uniforms, sounded the air raid siren, stepped inside a real Anderson shelter and also investigated inside the fire look-out tower.  They were able to sit inside replicas of war planes.  A busy morning was had by all and the children were able to see artefacts up close rather than merely in a book or on the Internet.

BACK TO THE 70’s – The children enjoyed their trip back through the decades for Gourdon School’s 60th Birthday Celebrations and P6/7 had a brief insight into life in the 1970’s.  The music was popular with most of the children and we had some budding John Travolta’s amongst the pupils.  The pupils of P6/7 all worked very hard to learn their lines and performed admirably.  A lot of fun was had in the build up to their performance and afterwards as the photos show.
