For recycling week this year the Green School Committee would like children to make their own junk art creation at home.
Parents are invited to help children with these creations. Please ensure only RECYCLABLE materials are used to make the creations with the exception of glue or sellotape. Please label each creation with children’s names and class names.
Some examples of Junk Art materials are – paper, cardboard, recyclable plastic, tin cans, cereal boxes, toilet tissue inserts etc. The winners will be chosen by the Green School committee on Friday 16th November and will be announced during the school day.
All creations must be brought to school On Friday morning at the latest. Please ensure all creations are small enough for children to carry themselves.

Our next big event is the Winter Fair which is on December 7th!
The PTA and student council are delighted to host our annual cake sale in the hall this Friday. We are asking our school community to support this event for the provision of skipping workshops for the children in the school. Skipping is an excellent way to promote fitness, increased hand, feet and eye coordination and it's lots of fun. We are looking for donations of cakes, buns, snacks and treats for the Cake Sale.We are looking for parent volunteers to support setting up the hall and stalls from 11am on Friday!
We were so excited for Euan when he won student of the week today! Euan won this award for showing lots of enthusiasm for Maths week. Euan encouraged others during our maths trails and has been using his ‘maths eyes’ all week. Well done Euan we're so proud of you!
Wow a super fun maths morning! We loved having the parents of Willow and Rose class join us for some fun maths games. It was such a special treat to show off all the maths we've been learning. We even had our Willow class parents join us to listen to our assembly song! There'll be lots of other opportunities to pop into Willow class throughout the school year and we can't wait to have you all back again soon.
Willow class had so much fun completing our maths trail around the school. We made maths eyes posters for homework this week and now we see maths EVERYWHERE! Maths is so much fun! We can't wait to sing our maths song for assembly tomorrow too!
We are looking forward to raising awareness of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) Day tomorrow, 19th October. We will be hosting an information display in the Yew Room from 8.30 tomorrow morning - there will be videos, information leaflets, displays of work from some children and our very own SLT Neasa (who works specifically with the Birch Class) will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there.
This week in Powerstown ETNS we will be celebrating Maths Week. Children will be doing lots of fun maths related activities throughout the week.
