Bake Sale

Well done to all the pupils in P6/7 who worked hard to make today’s bake sale a great success. The class managed to raise the fantastic total of £55.85, meaning our total for the Abernethy Enterprise Challenge now stands at just over £140!

We would like to say a huge thank you to the pupils and staff from the school who came along to buy all the delicious cakes and biscuits, and of course a massive thanks to all the parents and grandparents who helped with the baking at home. Well done everyone!


Gaelic Song

Today Sandra came in for our last session of Gaelic song. We practised some of the songs we’ve been learning, such as Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (in Gaelic) and Highland Fairy Lullaby. Then we learnt Nollaig Cridheil which is We Wish You a Merry Christmas in Gaelic. We finished by making some Gaelic Christmas cards which you will get to see soon!

Book review for Holes. By Willow

Holes is a good book. It is full of fun and adventure. The main character is Stanley Yelnats. Stanley, who is sent to Green camp lake after being found guilty for stealing a pair of sneakers off a famous person, (Although he is innocent).   At camp Green lake they have to dig holes to build Character, but what they don’t know is that the warden is actually making them dig for something she thinks is something much more precious!  I think it’s a grate book and really think you should read it too, because it’s moving and you never know whats going to happen next. I would recommend this book and would rate it four and a half stars out of five.      By Willow.

It is about a band the names of the kids are Anji,Tris,Dan,Leo and their dog Bones.One of their mums wants them to enter a competition called star makers .But they don’t want to  so their mum says that if they audition for the show they can go to a festival.

When they go on TV and play music they play the same as last time.they win because the public voted for them and the juges liked them to and went through to the final.

AT the final they play rock music and win but one of the juges does not like it but the public vote for them and they win.

When i first started reading this book i did not like it. But when i read further on in book i realy liked it. At the start i thought it was quite boring. For rating i would give it 8 out of 10.


My book review of Awful Auntie by Imogen

This is my book review of Awful Auntie written by David Williams. This is an exciting and thrilling book.The main characters are Stella,Awful Auntie (Alberta) and Soot.

In Awful Auntie there is a girl called Stella and she lives with her awful auntie, Alberta, because Stella’s mum and dad died in a car crash.  Stella was in the car but survived but had broken all her bones and was in a coma, well that was what her auntie said.  Stella lived in a big beautiful house that was called Saxby Hall.  As Stella is wrapped up like a mummy, her first mission is to get out of the bandages as she wriggles and wriggles she finally gets out.  While she is trying to escape her aunty and her pet Bavarian owl Wagner catch her and locks her down in the dark dungeons of Saxby Hall.  Every now and then Stella’s auntie comes down and checks on her.

While Stella is in the dungeon she sees a bright light and a ghost appears.  The ghost is called Soot, who was a chimney sweep but died while doing it.   Stella and Soot found a way out and started to pull nasty pranks on aunty Alberta.  But Stella is going to turn 13 and wont be a child so soon Soot will start to fade away but he helps Stella escape and he will always be in her heart.

I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars, because I loved the book, it is probably my favourite book of all times. I loved the characters and how Stella and soot are still friends even tho she cant see him.

I would recommend this book for 8 to 11 year olds, because it is not quite babyish and something a 12-13 year old would read, so it is in the middle of both of them.




My Book Review By Sophie

This is my book review of Girl Online written by Zoe Sugg. I have been reading this book at home. This book is about a fictional character called Penny who is 15 years old and is  learning to become a photographer.

Penny lives in Brighton with  her mum who is a wedding designer. A lovely couple from New York ask Penny’s mum if she could do a wedding in New York. Penny goes to New York with her mum she meets a famous singer called Noah but Penny does  not know he’s famous.

They get along really well and Noah’s Granny Sandy Lee invites Penny and her mum over for Christmas. Noah has a little sister called Bella.  The reason Noah and Bella live with their Granny  is because Noah’s parents died in a car crash.  That reminds Penny of the time when she was in a car accident now she always has  panic attack ‘s every time she’s in a moving vehicle. Her best friend Elliot came up with a character who is brave and strong so Penny thinks of a character called Ocean Strong she  helps her through a lot.

I have enjoyed this book so much and I would definitely recommend this book.  I liked that it had a lot of drama but it was also very funny.  I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars because it is very interesting  and will keep you wondering  what is going happen next.

The age rating i think is 10 to 15 because it has quite hard words and it is quite hard to understand.
