St Andrews Day at St Andrews 1Pupils at St. Andrew’s Primary School treated their parents and parishioners to an afternoon of poetry, song, dance and art on St. Andrew’s Day. The celebration of teaching and learning was the culmination of a weeklong learning journey by each class exploring all things Scottish.
Primary 6/7 shared their learning about the life and times of our national bard, Robert Burns, and sang a beautiful rendition of Leezie Lindsay before encouraging school mates and parents to join in with the rousing Charlie is My Darling.

Primary 5/6 decided to learn more about Scottish inventors including Alexander Graham Bell, James Watt and Charles Mackintosh. After learning about the inventors pupils designed their own inventions and presented their prototypes to pupils and parents. We are sure innovative ideas such as the fridge which reads your mind and stocks itself, would prove popular world-wide!

Primary 3/4 created a walking and talking art gallery after studying the artist Jomolo. They worked with local artist, Ruth Slater and created their very own colourful masterpieces completed in the style of Jomolo.
Primary 1/2 thoroughly enjoyed reading the Katie Morag stories by author Morag Henderson. They entertained the whole school with a song and dance they had written all about Katie Morag and her grannies – island granny, played by a glamourous Mrs Kane (school secretary), and, mainland granny played by a not so glamourous Mr Dickson (school janitor)!
