Many thanks to everyone for your support of Scoraig School; for the delicious baking, market stalls and for all of your generous donations. The Fair trade Market made £165 for the fund, with £20 towards ‘Save the Tiger’. The Scones and tea, kindly organised by the STG, raised £60 towards games for the seniors and a game for the infants. The Pupil Council will be selecting and ordering games on Friday! All of these events have enabled our pupils to participate in real life enterprise and citizenship, to make decisions and to be involved in the local and global community.
Thank you for your continued support.
Jack P1” I am pleased that we are getting some money for the school…..and the tiger. I was good at welcoming people. We got to count lots of pennies.”
Rowan P1” Lots of people came to guess how many tigers are in the world. Mummy and Daddy and me bought a lovely big chocolate cake. My favourite. I had fun.”
Glen P6 I learnt about farmers and the types of food they produce. When we had the Fair trade market I felt good because we helped the farmers and I made a difference.
Mysha P2”We made lots and lots of money. I learned about tigers, rainforests and Fair trade.”
Alex P7 People can get closer in our community and learn what’s happening in the Amazonian rainforest.
The Animals of the Rainforest by Alex P7
Up above the trees
So high lies
The birds of the skies
In the bushes
And in the swamps
Lies and sleeps
The wandering sloth
And of course his friend
Purple fluttering moth
On the vines and in the undergrowth
Slithers and sneaks
You might see him peaking
In the lakes
What’s that noise?
Who can it be?
Oh no, how could we forget
It is little old wallaby
In the holes and on the trees
Waits and crouches poisonous spider
Ready waiting like the tiger!
There is a nice fragrant smell in the Rainforest
Humming birds fly so fast that you can’t see them.
They look like diamonds.
Toucans clacking their beaks
Are very noisy.
Butterflies fly in the sky
Like angels they are very beautiful.
The Rainforest by Glen P6
Thick vines like snakes
Dangling from the trees
Humming birds like
Diamonds in the sky
Monkeys howling like fog horns
Frogs gribbiting in the ponds
Waters are like thunder
Branches snapping sound like whips
When they hit the ground
Crocodiles sludging in the mud
Sloths mounting slowly up trees
Camouflaged as if there was nothing there.
