World Book Day 2017
P3b celebrate World Book Day
World Book Day was on the 2nd March. We celebrated by dressing up as characters from books and comics. When we arrived in the morning we had a guessing game to identify the different costumes in the class. We enjoyed finding information in books and we even created our own book covers, which we have displayed around the school. Claire Smith came into class and read us a story from our school library. The story was about a little bear who heard noises, it was very funny. We love books in primary 3b!

Tim Peake Project
Primary 5 have been selected for the Tim Peake Project Primary. This project will act as online Space ambassadors to our school.
The project, aims to help primary schools use space as an inspirational context in their teaching and learning across a broad range of curriculum subjects. It is suitable for all primary stages and has strong links to the Curriculum for Excellence.
The school will get:
- A resource box of physical and electronic resources linked to Tim’s mission and to other European Space Agency missions with the potential to inspire your students;
- Three CPD sessions which will introduce you to the project and tell you more about how to make best use of the resources and activities on offer;
- The interactive online session for students, the date and details of which will be confirmed through discussion with you; and
- A regular newsletter to keep you up to date with the project and the associated missions.
In addition, they’ll support us by being available as a source of support and information about the TPPP resources and space in general throughout the school year.
This project is delivered on behalf of the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO-UK) and is FREE to your school. The value of the activities and resources offered to your school is £500. The project is not limited to one class and can ideally involve the whole school. The project will run from October 2016 through March 2017.

‘It was interesting how he answered the questions with so much passion and detail and when he spoke about issues like broadband; he told us how he would actually make things better’
‘We were interested in young scot cards and would like to find out more about how it could be linked with the ADS scheme so that our schools could use the discounted fares without needing our parents to give the school our ADS cards’
Term 3 2014 2015 Eco Update
Harry P5A and Mackenzie P4B were our logo design winners; above is the Sound School Eco Logo which combines their two ideas
We took part in energy month and managed to reduce the schools use of energy.
Alan Grieve, from the SIC Energy Department, talked to the Eco Club about energy use and let us use his energy monitor to calculate the money it costs to run school lights, laptops and whiteboards.
We calculated that having the classroom whiteboards on 6 hours a day for the school year would cost around £2,500.
Teachers and pupils have now started turning off their whiteboards at break, lunch and when they aren’t being used.
P4 and P7 have been taking our plastic bottles to the bottle bank. Remember to use your ‘feed me plastic bin’. We still recycle our fruit and veg to make compost every day.
Eco Schools Visit
Eco Schools Scotland are coming to Sound School in the next term or so, to see all our fantastic work to reduce, reuse and recycle. Hopefully, we will get our next Eco Flag.
What Next? Waste Week, flower planting and Water Week.
