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:

Boy and the Bunnet Shadow Puppet Show

Georgious

One of our P7’s was inspired by their non fiction reading to write a poem. It’s rather excellent and deserves to be shared, demonstrating some clever language features including alliteration and plays on words, not to mention some super rhyming. Well done Lilian.

Holiday Homework 2019

We’ve had some interesting Holiday Homework in this week: we’ve had stories about holidays, sticker books, Banagrams, Orangutans and this stop animation above.

Happy New Year!

Eels in the Classroom

A week last Friday the P7s and a bonus P5 represented the school and the Eels in the Classroom Project at the Johnstonebridge Community Centre, after school. One of the P7s made a speech about her experience which I have shared below, and which contains an important message. Hannah is dressed as Roald Dahl ‘s Matilda for good measure!

Mr Mac’s Last Day

It’s Mr Mac’s last day and we wished him good luck.

 

The little class had all written good luck messages, which they read for Mr McIntyre.

Following that, the big class sang a song that they have learned as part of their Lochinvar Project.

Next the big class all performed a poem they wrote called: D’ ye mind ae Mr Mac?

Finally, Mr McIntyre gave a speech and said farewell.

Good luck Mr Mac and all the best!

From all at Brydekirk Primary

Lochinvar Recital

Here’s a video showing some of our Border Reivers topic work:  our Lochinvar Tapestry accompanied by Daniel in P4-7 reciting the poem by Sir Walter Scott.

Holiday Homework

What a term it’s been at Brydekirk and we are all ready for a break before the final term.

Here are some ideas for holiday homework, that P5-7 came up with, for anyone interested or at a loose end:

  • Mini Science Project
  • Take RME Values lessons and do another example
  • work on the iXL challenge
  • write a newspaper article
  • make a presentation
  • make a piece of art
  • write your own verse’s of Claire’s “Oh Aye!” song
  • practice Duolingo
  • do something about anything
  • or anything about something

Have a good holiday!

Mr A

More Nonsense

More nonsense, from the other group last term

A Spot of Nonsense

This was made by one half of P5-7 and was one of the Nonsense poems learned off by heart last term. Hannah was accidentally missed from the credits!
