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:

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.

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.

P5-7 Homework

I have updated the P-7 Homework Page to reflect changes for this session, as discussed with parents earlier this term at Meet the Teacher evening.

This term I have also challenged the pupils to learn as much as they can of a Nonsense poem of their choice, off by heart.

Burns Supper

Here are some lovely photographs, taken by Mr McBain, of the Burns Supper held at the Village Hall on Friday night.

Everyone had a great time. The pupils were on great form and provided an evening of entertainment. The PFA also worked really hard to feed the 100 guests, keep them from getting thirsty, not to mention a brilliant raffle that topped off a fine evening.

Mrs Turnbull and Mr Archibald would like to say well done to all who contributed for their efforts and thanks again to all helpers and to Mr McBain for the great photos.

 

Christmas Holidays

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and has been able to get around OK in the stormy weather.

As discussed in class for those who are at a loose end or want a wee project, here’s some ideas:

  • Those reading The Machine Gunners, you could do a project on World War 2. It’s a big subject so you could look at making a time line of events, focusing on the Blitz, or rationing, countries involved or anything that takes your fancy.
  • Those reading Natural Record Breakers, you could write your own chapter, including pictures and diagrams, of any natural record breaker not covered so far in the book.
  • As suggested by Mrs Robb, who recently inspected our school, write a proposal to Mr Cameron and Professor Heppell to say why we should take the iPads home for homework.
  • Learn a Burn’s poem or song off by heart for our Burn’s Supper next month.
  • Create an idea to get more parents and people commenting on this blog.
  • Or anything else you fancy doing related to A Christmas Carol, Rubik’s Cubes, ice crystals or whatever. If you think it’s a good idea, add it as a comment below and maybe other members of the class can do it or work with you too.

Anything above should be fun and something you want to do. Don’t over do it however if you are going to do something, then it’s worth doing it well.

See you in a week or so and enjoy the break,

Mr Archibald
