P3B Communications Team

Each P3 Class has a Communications Team as part of the Harvest Appeal project that they are leading in school. They are working with Mercy Corps to raise money to help Syrian refugees. Comms Teams from P3A and P3C met with Mrs Noble and Ms Christie to make sure everyone hears about their appeal. The P3B Comms Team met with Ms Gallagher.

P3B Syrian Appeal Communications Group Meeting Minutes

Date: Wednesday 30th September 2015
Present: P3B Communications Group: Catie, Jamie, Izzy, Zoe, James.

Agenda
1. What do we want to say about the P3 Project?
2. How can we tell people about the P3 Project?

Items
1. Everyone explained the project in their own words to help tell other people about it.

Primary Three are trying to raise money for Mercy Corps to help Syrian children who are refugees. There is a war in Syria and lots of people have lost their homes. Refugees are people who are trying to find a safe place to live. We are lucky to have lots of things to play with in our playground. We want to help children in refugee camps. We want to give them their own playground. A playground costs £300.

We have decorated envelopes and everyone will get one. Please put some money in your envelope and bring it back to school by 8th October. We will collect the envelopes from the classes. Everyone in P3 has a different job to do. Some people are envelope collectors, some people are money counters and some people are going to talk at Assembly to tell everyone about our project.

Thank you from The P3 Communications Team

P3 Appeal for Playgrounds for Syrian Refugees

At special Assemblies with Mercy Corps on Thursday 1st October, P3 pupils told the school about their Harvest project to help Syrian refugees.

The P3 Communications Group met on Wednesday and this is how they explained the project in their own words:

Primary Three are trying to raise money for Mercy Corps to help Syrian children who are refugees. There is a war in Syria and lots of people have lost their homes. Refugees are people who are trying to find a safe place to live. We are lucky to have lots of things to play with in our playground. We want to help children in refugee camps. We want to give them their own playground. A playground costs £300.

We have decorated envelopes and everyone will get one. Please put some money in your envelope and bring it back to school. We will collect the envelopes from the classes. Everyone in P3 has a different job to do. Some people are envelope collectors, some people are money counters and some people are going to talk at Assembly to tell everyone about our project.

Envelopes should be returned to school by Thursday 8th October.

Thank you
P3 Communications Group

Money tricks

Reuben had a wonderful discovery to share with everyone in P3a today. He found out that if you arrange all the coins they make up the shield of a £1 coin. Everyone was very impressed!
