Rugby 7s

Some of our Primary 7 pupils enjoyed an afternoon playing rugby at Alloa Rugby Club. All of the pupils played extremely well and displayed excellent sportsmanship. They were a credit to our school! Well done to all involved!

                                                         Team 1
                                                          Team 2

The children were not put off by the muddy pitches and luckily the sun was shining for us all afternoon. Safe to say there will be lots of baths tonight!

Dinosaurs

Today Primary one were introduced to their new learning context… Dinosaurs. They came up with lots of good questions that they would like to find out the answers to, for example:

  • How do they get out of the egg?
  • What colour is dinosaur blood?
  • How do they fly?
  • What do dinosaurs eat and drink?
  • How did dinosaurs become extinct?

Hopefully over the next few weeks P1 will learn the answers to these questions!

This afternoon activity time was dinosaur themed. It is shaping up to be an exciting and interesting context!

Do you wanna build a snowman?!

We made the most of the snowy weather in P2S today and took our learning outdoors!sam_2864

The children used rulers to measure their snowmen - making sure they were 30cm tall!

Once we had built our snowmen we placed them in different places around the school and made predictions about which snowmen would melt quickest.

'I think out in the area they will probably take a long time to melt because its a bit colder out there.' - Kara

We checked our snowmen and measured them every 10 minutes.

The snowmen that we left outside lasted the longest. Just as we had predicted!

P2S have been working SO hard to learn our Scots songs for the infant Burn’s Supper. Here is a wee snapshot of our braw singing!
