Sportshall Athletics at Moffat

Here are some pics from the pupils that made it to Sportshall Athletics at Moffat on Friday. P4-7 have been working hard on their fitness and technique in the different track and field events in PE for most of the term and performed really well. Well done to all who made the trip and a special mention to Finbarr who arrived early on Friday with his gear incase we needed him. As some pupils who had been absent returned on the day Finbarr couldn’t make the trip (the bus was limited) but he’ll get to come next time. Also, thanks to our volunteer Mr Fitzgerald who helped to run an efficient team.

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.
