P7 Leavers’ Ceremony

Yesterday we had the P7 Leavers’ Ceremony at 2pm. We had songs from everyone and Mrs Reid, Mr Archibald, Miss Primrose and many Pupils spoke. Prizes were awarded and then right at the end we had a last song to send off the P7s with Rio taking a starring role playing guitar – take a bow Rio.

We did our best to video the proceedings but as it was outside and the wind was blowing, the results aren’t what we hoped but we did our best in the circumstances:

And here was a video from Miss Davies:

Holiday Homework

It’s the end of the second term and I’m really pleased that we’ve made it through the last two terms. Everyone has worked hard and should enjoy a well earned break.

Having said that, I often set holiday homework for anyone that is at a loose end and as I didn’t do it for the last holiday here’s some ideas for anyone that is stuck in on a wet day. This is optional and you should only attempt this with permission:

  • Cardboard box / diorama project (as discussed in class and see above).
  • Art work
  • Keep a diary of what you do in the holidays
  • Make a presentation
  • Mini Science Project
  • Make a movie
  • Write a Fact File
  • Practice Duolingo
  • Something about anything, anything about something
  • iXL challenge (woosh for every 100 hundred questions at a challenging level)

For any of the above think about some of the things that you have learned since August: ecosystems, Judaism, circles, graffiti, discussion text, suspense stories, A Stranger Came Ashore etc.

Good luck if you give something a go.

Best wishes, I hope you all have a good break and see you in 2021,

Mr A

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,

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:
