As part of her 90th Birthday celebrations, the Queen attended many functions and parties. Here at Rosneath Primary School, we took the opportunity to join in the celebrations with our very own Tea Party for Her Majesty. As you can tell by the faces (some of which had to be “scrubbed clean”) the whole School was very proud to come together to “devour” enthusiastically (but minding manners, of course) a lovely spread provided by Mrs Johnson (our Catering Supervisor) and her Staff.
Recently, as part of their R.M.E. Topic on Celebrations, P3/2 at Rosneath Primary School decided to make then send 90th Birthday Cards to the Queen. The children had great fun putting their own personal touch to their cards.
Never in their wildest dreams did they think the Queen would remember their cards out of all the millions that were sent.
The Staff and children of Rosneath Primary School very much enjoyed their Christmas lunch today and we thank our wonderful Catering Staff (pictured). Devouring fantastic food, pulling crackers, wearing our Christmas jumpers/tops, singing Christmas songs and generally having a fun time together. Ho! Ho! Ho!
Rosneath Primary School pupils were so happy to “get their hands on” their very first Green Flag after an outstanding assessment report from Paula Love, Lead Assessor. They gathered together on a beautiful, sunny day (of which we don’t have that many!) out in the School grounds to show it off. We hope to have it flying high soon. As Julie Wilson , Education and Learning Manager (Keep Scotland Beautiful) said, “This is an outstanding achievement, congratulations to all.”
Primary 1 pupils and parents from Rosneath enjoyed a fabulous outing to Blair Drummond Safari Park. They were joined by the Pre5 children that will be starting school in August. The children had the opportunity to see a variety of exotic animals, such as: elephants, chimpanzees, rhinos, zebras, meerkats and many more. In the pet farm they enjoyed petting goats, donkeys and ponies.
Rosneath Primary School are ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED to share their latest success with everybody. Today, Monday 15th June, will stick in our minds for a long time to come because today is the day we earned our very first Eco Green Flag.
Children and adults alike were soooooooooooooooo excited when Paula Love (Assessor) came to school at 10.30. Two hours later, we were all celebrating!
We are hoping to receive our Flag before the end of Term so photos will follow!
This session, 21 pupils from Primary 2/3 have been involved in an exciting new initiative called Roots of Empathy. Throughout the year there have been weekly visits from the instructor Jane McLean, School Nurse and every two weeks a visit from a mother and baby, Kathy and Hamish.
Roots of Empathy is an innovative program teaching pupils valuable lessons while fostering a more nurturing and caring environment in the classroom.
Rosneath Primary took part in the above event with other Helensburgh & Lomond Primary Schools on Thursday 23rd April. What a glorious morning! Ideal weather, ideal terrain under foot, lots of enthusiastic Runners.
All personal goals achieved and the Finish Line crossed!
Many thanks to Margery Taylor (Lomond) and Martin Caldwell for superb organisation and to Lomond for their hospitality.
Primary 1 pupils at Rosneath Primary School treated pupils, staff and families to a bright and wonderful assembly. The theme for their assembly was, of course, chicks! The children worked very hard to learn songs, poems and other speaking parts. To add a splash of colour the children wore yellow t-shirts and made chick masks. Two of our very own chicks, Joey and Chicky, even made an appearance at the assembly. Can you see how much they’ve grown?
Primary 7/6 would like to thank our Instructor Rob (can you spot him in our photos?) for teaching us in our 6 Samba Drumming lessons over 6 weeks.
On Thursday it was over to us and SHOWTIME – we had to SHOWCASE our newly acquired SKILLS to the rest of our school and our Parents.
It has been remarked that we showed such CONFIDENCE and MUSICAL TALENT! Rob took a little bit of a back seat and we took over complete with whistle. Well Done to our 3 Leaders – Rhys, David and Ceri.
Here at Rosneath we were very proud to take part in World Book Day. Children most definitely showcased their love of reading and books!
From Disney Princesses to Superheroes to Cats………………………………… the list is endless!
Many thanks to our local Librarian Mrs Barclay (or was it “Where’s Wally’s sister????????????) who kindly organised activities for all five classes.
Primary one pupils at Rosneath Primary School have been lucky to have the Living Eggs experience in their classroom. The children watched 9 fluffy little chicks hatch and cared for them for over a week. An amazing experience that we would highly recommend!
In order to fund this Miss McLean and Primary 1 organised a Toy and Cake Sale for pupils, staff, families and friends. A fantastic total of £250 was raised!
Rosneath Primary School, P7/6 held a superb Burns Supper on the evening of Monday 27 January 2015.
After a supper of Soup followed by Haggis, neeps and tatties, then some of Mrs Johnson’s famous Shortbread, the pupils gave us an excellent evening of entertainment in true Burns fashion, from their ‘toasts’ (how witty the toast to the Lassies and also Rhys’s reply from the Lassies), to poetry, singing and dancing for all.
Primary 1 pupils at Rosneath enjoyed a fun Friday afternoon, with a Scottish twist, to celebrate Burns’ Night. Pupils enjoyed learning and performing Scottish poem, “The Lollipop Man” and Scottish song “Ye Canny Shove Yer Granny Aff a Bus”. To complete the Scottish experience the children took part in Scottish dancing; ate and drank an array of Scottish foods; wore tartan clothes and accessories and created their own Scotland flags. An awesome afternoon was had by all!
Primary 5-7 at Rosneath Primary School enjoyed a fantastic Christmas Party today. What an array of outfits!! We danced traditional Scottish dances, threw in a mix of modern, Pass The Parcel, Musical Arms and delicious party food. The 2 hours disappeared so quickly and a very good time was had by all. Thank You to everyone who helped to make it a great success, especially the children.
