Hero bear visits Kinloss

Recently the children from the Flower Pot (the School’s new Nurture Room) in Kinloss Primary met Hero Bear after baking and selling cakes for Help for Heroes’ national “Colossal Cake Sale”. They managed to raise £164.75 and, although it was planned to last an hour everything sold out in just 20 minutes. 

Well done to all those who worked hard to make the cakes and to those selling them. Also thank you to all those people who came along to buy the wonderful baking in record time!!

Burns Supper

Here are some pictures from our recent Burns Supper on Friday 24th January. The P6/7 Children prepared all the food with the help of their teachers, Mr Rutherford, Miss Mair and the Fusion team (Emily Souness, Kim Douglas and Ann Scotland). Apart from preparing the food the children, helped to decorate the venue (the school hall) and created a leaflet listing the programme for the event, background on Robert Burns and a photograph of the class as part of a four week preparation process (details below the slideshow).

It took four weeks of planning running up to the event itself.

Week 1  Researching Robert Burns, creating promotions and invitations, divide the class into groups and decide on roles e.g. chefs, researchers, designers and entertainers.

Week 2  Looked into sourcing ingredients, costings for the meal, invitations to parents, start creating decorations and practise the entertainment.

Week 3  Practiced cooking and did taste tests, decorations, entertainment practice and then start to look into the format of the day, allocating roles to certain pupils.

Week 4   Dress rehearsal for the big day, final entertainment practice, decorate the hall and prepare the food (Thursday 23rd Jan) ready for Friday. Finally a powerpoint was created of the photos showing the hardwork and preparation for the event.

Christmas Show

All the classes were involved in a Christmas Show based on the theme of A Christmas Carol.

There were four scenes in the show. The Staff, children and volunteer helpers all worked hard to make the show a wonderful display of Kinloss Talent!. Mr Rutherford took charge. All classes were involved in making all the props and working on their costumes.

Tea, Coffee and Mince pies were served after the event.

Book Week Assembly

On Friday the whole school gathered in the hall. Many of the children had chosen to dress up in a character from a book. For example in P6 there was Frodo Baggins, Willy Wonka, Bella Swan, Gangster Granny, Scooby Doo, Ratburger, Dorothy, Matilda, Amanda Thripp, Junior Executioner,  Ghost rider, Wally, Harry Potter, Horrid Henry and Sully. Each class went up one by one for the character book parade.

In P6 Sam (as a warrior from War Horse) and Alyssia (Willy Wonka).

Chat n’ Chill

The first Chat n’ chill was attended by 30 parents from across the school ages. This is a social event for parents hosted by the Head Teacher and allows parents to have an opportunity to offer support to each other as well as to the school and also to raise concerns with the Head Teacher in an informal manner. The dates of the future Chat n’ chill are contained on the Events page.
