STV Children’s Appeal – 15.05.17
Everyone at Chatelherault Primary have been raising money for STV Children’s Appeal. Each class chose a different sponsored event as part of the “One Hour Challenge”. During the event we had a special visitors – Tunnocks and Scotland’s favourite weather man, Sean Batty. Sean participated in lots of activities including some obstacle courses, juggling, the mannequin challenge and even managed some bottle flipping. We’re awaiting the grand total from our efforts and hope that the money can help support the 1 in 5 children in Scotland who live in poverty!
Money Week 2017 is going really well. We have had lots of really interesting visitors teaching us lots of different things about how to be more ‘money aware’ and to help us with our financial education.
We want to say a huge, “Thank-you” to them all for making our Money Week so successful and be lots of fun!
World Book Day
Pupils celebrated our annual World Book Day by coming to school dressed as their favourite character. Well done to everyone who made a fabulous effort to make the day so much fun.
Pupils were able to talk about their favourite books with staff at the assembly. In class, pupils continued to read and P4-7 recorded their books in the First Minister’s Passport. Classes decorated their classroom doors as their favourite book and also created new book tokens for a National Competition.
The Literacy Working Party are now working on promoting reading in P1-3 and will be launching the Book Bug Bags, Read, Write, Count and Bags of Books.
Rm15 and 11 held their school election on Friday 17th February
All classes were able to vote for the party who had used the most persuasive manifesto and election campaign. Pupils creatively issued badges and put posters around the school. T shorts were decorated to promote the party and the children spoke to classes about why they should be elected. An excellent campaign. Votes have been counted and the winning party will be announced on Monday 20th February.
Primary 5 were all delighted to find out that one of our Christmas presents this year was an adopted panda through the WWF. Mrs Bear and Mrs McPartlin surprised the class by telling us that their gift was a panda. We also have a small cuddly WWF panda which we have decided to call, ‘Kevin’. We are going to take turns at taking Kevin home and spending time at our homes, We will improve our literacy skills by writing a diary entry of our adventures. Watch this space for regular updates!
It’s Kevin’s second week-end trip away from Chateherault Primary and he is going home with Caitlin McLaughlin. We all wonder where she’ll take him? Keep watching!

Well done to everyone for contributing to a fabulous Fair Trade fun Day! We are working towards our fair trade achiever award and we decided to have a whole school Fair Trade fun day on Friday 14th October.
The staff and pupils dressed in bright colours to celebrate fair trade. All children took part in a fair trade activity with their class and we now have some beautiful work displayed around the school as evidence of what we have learned.
The children got to have lots of fun on two huge bouncy castles in the gym hall and there was a fair trade tuck shop with some healthy fair trade fruit and some yummy treats too.
The children from the nursery up to Primary 3 took part in a fair trade treasure hunt and while they were searching for clues around the school they learned about the story of Pablo the Super Banana who helped the farmers by becoming a fair trade banana.
We will be raising awareness of fair trade each term so stay tuned for the exciting plans for term 2.
