Children In Need

This week at Moorfoot  we have been getting involved  in Children In Need. We did a bake sale to raise money for Pudsey and the flabbergasting amount of money we made was £246.82 which is loads! Amazingly our pupil council organised this for us.  ALL of the money is going to Children In Need. The bake sale was exhilarating and they sold out. Lots of people also dressed down and brought in donations.

Thanks to everyone who donated and bought poppies during our Poppy Appeal on Friday 11th November.

We raised £42.35 which has been donated to Poppy Scotland.

Well done! poppy

Winter is here!

Temperatures have certainly dropped and winter has arrived!

We still like the children to enjoy outside play at morning break and lunchtime so please ensure they are dressed appropriately with warm, waterproof coats and sensible footwear. Hats, scarves and gloves are also recommended!

Thank Youwinter

Good News!!

This week has been a very busy week!! First of all Class 4 did FANTASTICALLY at their basketball tournament on Tuesday! They won 2 games and lost 3, but they were by far the smallest school, so still very impressive! Furthermore there has been some incredible news… MR WOOD HAS BEEN ELECTED AS MOORFOOT PRIMARY’S NEW HEAD TEACHER!!! When the school got told the phenomenal news they all erupted into emotional applause and joy!

As you may know on Friday it was Remembrance Day (Armistice day). Class 4 planned an assembly and made beautiful poppies with deep stories that almost made everybody cry! Moreover Lauren read ‘In Flanders Fields’ right next to the decorated cross with all of the outstanding poppies on them which is a very powerful way to end an assembly.

We have remembrance day for all of the soldiers who suffered and continue to suffer in war. Lest we forget.

This week has been fantastic and nerve racking for some people, with the outstanding Christmas show approaching fast, and now all the auditions are over, we have some amazing talent here at Moorfoot! Furthermore, our Halloween party in school was a great success, with some fantastic DJs, Corran-P7 and Blair-P6, everybody had a fantastic time and there were some amazing costumes. Moreover there was a fantastic pumpkin competition, with phenomenal entries! i hope you all had a happy Halloween

Furthermore, the whole school got a presentation about Hibs winning the Scottish Cup and the cup is on a tour around schools in the local area. Their tour is called persevered because the HIBS football team had to persevere to get the cup! We we were told that we need to persevere in life like Hibs did to achieve things we want to achieve!

Moreover instead of P5-P7 doing the Moorfoot medal, they- if they would like to, could do a thing called Children’s University, everybody in P5,6,7 we all got a talk about it on Friday should have got a letter about it, if for some reason you do have one then contact the school.

Fantastically we had a P.E lesson with Ms Wilson in which we did basketball, because on Tuesday 8th November, 10 people will go to a basketball tournament! Good Luck!!!
