We managed to borrow a Vtech camera today, which we are thinking about buying for the P1-3 class. After showing two members of the little class how to use the camera they went off and took all apart from the last picture above at different points today. Mr Archibald then took the camera and posted the pictures here. The camera can also make videos and record sound.
All had a fun time at our Halloween Disco last night with dancing and some games.
Well done to all who took part with some cracking costumes on display. The P7s deserve a mention for organising some of the night, well done.
Also a big thanks to the parents and staff who helped out: Mark’s Mum, Ellie’s Mum, Adam’s Mum, Emily and Sarah’s Mum, Iona and Aidan’s Mum, Sandy and Douglas’s Mum, James’s Mum, Mrs Turnbull, Ms Burn and Mr Archibald.
The proceeds raised will go towards the P7 residential trip later this year.
We are having a disco for all pupils and some invited P7s from other local schools, on the 1st of November at:
P1-3 18.00 – 19.30
P4-7 18.30 – 20.00
It’s £2 to get in which includes some grub (treacle donuts and bobbing for apples) and there will be food and drinks to buy. Dress code is fancy dress where we will have a competition for best costume.
Any donations of baking, treats or prizes most welcome.
On the evening of Thursday the 11th of October, the staff invited all Brydekirk Primary parents in for a presentation about the new upper school approach to reading: Accelerated Reader.
There was a great turn out of parents who listened carefully to all of the work that has and is going on with reading and the library in the school. The parents also came up with a great suggestion for children to bring books they have previously read in and even came up with a sensible way to do this.
Below are the slides from Mr Archibald’s presentation and also a parent’s guide to AR.
Mr Sweeney came and worked with the whole school this afternoon, introducing us to Heart Start – Learning Emergency Life Support.
We learned valuable information about different situations, what to do and when. We also got to practise different skills: putting someone in the recovery position, checking for breathing and even doing CPR on our own dummies (although we didn’t manage to bring them back to life).
