Give Litter a Lift!

Primary 4/5 ~ Miss MacDonald

Our Eco Committee led an informative assembly telling us about Keep Scotland Beautiful’s roadside litter campaign.  The campaign is calling for a week of action and for people to get involved by giving Litter a lift and taking it home!

A number of children have gone home with a new sheet of Key words.  They have only been given 6 Key words next week to learn.  The idea is that they are given 1 minute to see how many words they can read aloud and the number is then recorded.  The exercise is then repeated each day for the week with the result recorded every day.  The idea is that the children will compete against themself to better their score from the day before.

I will be working with Mrs Haig to refresh these word each week.
