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:

Scottish Opera 1719

Here’s some of the resources the big class need to prepare for their performance of 1719 later this month:

All of the other resources are here, get practising.

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.

Another Snow Day

School is closed again today. I hope everyone is safe in this cold weather.

Things to do other than destroy your brains with devices or TV:

  • Go out and play in the snow, this may be the most you’ll see in your childhood (make sure you tell whoever is looking after you and are prepared for the weather)
  • Read
  • Write about your day off (any P7s who have written a blog post, and have their password, should write it up on this blog and I’ll post it)
  • Do some iXL maths (see homework link at the side)
  • Do some Spelling City (as above)
  • Find out more about our topic, history: GD Alfred the Great, DS King Canute, EA Edward the Confessor, JF William the Conqueror, MB Henry I, AC Richard I, DN Edward I, ChR Richard III, HM Henry VIII, LO Mary I, AM Elizabeth I, BO James VI & I, HA Charles II, RL Victoria and ON Elizabeth II.
  • Commit all of the dates on the sheet of Kings and Queens to memory, in preparation for your quiz next week
  • Draw, paint or create something
  • and anything else that requires thought, concentration and effort.

Bring any work in to present, like you do after holidays.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Mr A
