Children In Need 2018 in P3, P3/4 and P4

Today we enjoyed raising money for BBC Children In Need 2018.

We got to dress down (or up!) and had the opportunity to buy some delicious Pudsey biscuits at break.

Primary 3, 3/4 and 4 enjoyed some different activities in B Block today:

  • Design your own Pudsey.
  • Create your own Children In Need spotty biscuit.
  • Design a Pudsey friendship band with a positive message on the inside.

We also enjoyed learning about the importance of Children In Need and discovering all the different activities and centres the charity supports.  We were actively involved in sharing, giving, creating and expressing individuality while also filling each other with positive affirmations to demonstrate kindness.

Guy Fawkes

Last week we learnt all about the history of Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night:

“We learned that on 5th November 1605, an English man called Guy Fawkes and some of his friends were unhappy with King James so they decided to try and blow up Parliament.”

“They were going to use gunpowder to blow up Parliament and the King.”

“The King’s guards caught them before they could hurt anyone.”

“King James decided that on the 5th November every year people would remember the Gunpowder Plot and how the plan failed.”

“That’s why we have Bonfire Night.”

After learning all about the history of Guy Fawkes night, we worked at our tables to sequence cards, retelling the story of Guy Fawkes Night.

We also created some fantastic firework art using paper plates, paint and lots of glitter!



We have been enjoying creating some fantastic artwork since returning to school in August. This week we created some fantastic paper haunted houses.
