P7 went to the Zoo this week and attended the official opening of the Confucius Science hub at Edinburgh Zoo.
We had the chance to see the pandas and explore the zoo, as well as attend the ceremony where we sang for the guests. Afterwards, we took part in a variety of workshops which included Chinese tea, crafts, calligraphy, dressing up, music and using chopsticks.
We are delighted to be holding the Dalry Primary School Book Fair. This is an important reading and fund raising event for the school, last year we raised £583.01 which was used to buy books for the school. The Book Fair will be held from Monday26th February to Friday 2nd March 2018. The children will be able to browse among a wide variety of books and purchase any books of their choice. * There is no obligation to purchase any books. Last orders for the books will be Friday 2nd March 2018. No orders will be accepted after this date.
The Book Fair will be supplied by a Scottish company – The Travelling Book Company. There will be a wide selection of children’s books, young fiction and junior novels, as well as reference and non-fiction titles. It was a great success last year and allowed us to buy a large number of novels for the school.
Each class will get a chance to visit, to buy or just browse. Parents are very welcome to come and join their child’s class at the Book Fair and help him/her to choose a book. Entry to the school is via the Main Entrance only and all visitors should sign in. If you are unable to come along and your child finds a book which he/she would like, then a parental permission slip will be sent home. Some of the more popular books will need to be ordered from the company therefore, will arrive in school at some point after the Book Fair. All cheques should be made payable to Dalry Primary School.
The timetable of class visits and Fair opening times is as in the attachment below:
