P7 Enterprise

The P7s have been working hard over the last few Thursdays and Fridays trying to help at the Brydekirk Toddler Group on Friday mornings. So far they have surveyed the Parents and Toddlers to see what they would like and have started to bake. With an initial loan (which they have now payed back) they bought some ingredients for short bread and have had two goes at making it.  The girls hope to continue to help out.

Well done!

Scots Poetry

We’ve all being learning to recite a Scots Poem off by heart and had a class and then school Heat for the Annan Cluster Primary Scots Poetry competition. Well done to Donovan and Ben who were put forward for the Cluster Competition. Extra well done to Donovan who won his category.

Here’s some recordings that P5-7 made plus a couple of bonus tracks. One bonus track is Scots Wha Hae and the other is a very old recording that was on the recording device that I thought I’d share.

Enjoy!

As I said yesterday, this wee bunch of kids could achieve anything, which they proved yesterday:

Good luck P7s, the last 7 years have been so much fun and teaching you has been such a privilege.

Thanks for all of the gifts too, very generous and thoughtful.

Have a great summer one and all!

All the best,

The Staff at Brydekirk Primary

AROM Principles’ Visit

The Annan Riding of the Marches Principles visited Brydekirk Primary this afternoon.  This is a tradition that has happened for many long years and long may it continue. Following an introduction and short speech from Stuart Thompson, the pupils entertained the visitors with singing. Next Mrs Sybelle Raey announced the prize winners from Brydekirk in the competitions, including poetry, handwriting, colouring and poster; well done to all who took part. Especially well done to Lilian who won best overall poem, 1st place in poetry, 2nd place in handwriting, Hannah 3rd place in poetry, Izzy and Poppy. The pupils then gave the AROM Principles a couple more songs and wished them good luck to send them on their way.

Here’s some of the pupils poetry below:

K’Nex Challenge

This term P4-7 took part in their own K’Nex Challenge: they had to build a windmill. Watch these time lapse videos of the class in action:

On their performance in class Ami and Rio were chosen to represent Brydekirk Primary at Annan Academy at the Cluster K’Nex Challenge, and they won, hurrah! Well done Ami and Rio.
