Soccer Sevens

On the 2nd of October 2018 Joseph, Alex O, Reilly, Reece, Finley, Kasey, Lucas, Callum and Will went to Palmerston indoor arena to play in a football tournament called Soccer Sevens. The whole team played brilliantly. We played a against Georgetown, Newington, Hardgate, Heathall, Laurieknowe and Lochmaben. We were placed 2nd by just 1 point. It was so close. We won 4 matches, drew 1 match and lost one match. The team represented the school and we couldn’t have played much better. Well Done!

Operation Safety

On Wednesday 10th of October P7s went to DuPont. There were 5 sets of activities which were supervised and controlled by Scottish Power, ambulance service, police force and fire brigade. The first activity was with the ambulance service. There was a lady lying on the floor with one foot on a chair. She was an actress pretending to be unconscious. We were to try and save her while we waited for the ambulance to come.  We went to move her foot off the  chair and she screamed so loud. It gave everyone in the room a mini  heart attack. The next activity was an internet safety task with a twist that no one expected. After that our team went down stairs to spot some dangers around the room. It was very interesting seeing all the different dangers. After that we went to firework safety/ bonfire safety. We had to throw a cardboard firework and try not hit a picture of a mum and her baby. We answered some questions about the bonfire night and then went to our  final set which was Scottish Power. We learned about the dangers of electricity and what the signs do. Our day was really interesting and good fun.

Well done to P5/6 and P6/7 for a super Harvest Assembly yesterday. Some super learning and poems. You could see how much they enjoyed sharing their learning with us all. Well done to all the classes for some fab songs and singing. Thank you to everyone who donated items for the harvest table and well done to the House and Vice captains for delivering the harvest bags to people in the community and to the Foodbank Charity.  Have a lovely holiday.

Soccer Sixes

On the 9th of October a team of footballers including Reilly, Lucy, Eva, Reece, Owen, Ryan, Finely, Jay and Aidan played at Palmerston in the Soccer Sixes and prepared for four hard games. First game was 2-1 to Cargenbridge against Dalbeattie, so we got 3pts. Next we played Lincluden and the score was 1-0 to us. After that we played against Georgetown but unfortunately got beat 2-0. Shock horror hit when we went 1-0 down but then somehow won 3-1 against Hardgate. Unluckily Georgetown won by 3pts but everyone enjoyed the experience well done team!

P6/7 Curling Trip

On the 24 of September the primary sixes and sevens  went curling at the Ice – Bowl . We ended up being there for the whole day but it was ok because we got to watch people ice skating . When the curling people and helpers from the college were ready we went down and before we went down  we all had our snack. There were two other  schools there called Penpont primary and Hollywood primary. We first got into groups,  then we  learned how to hold the curling equipment which I don’t think was that tricky for too many people . Then we did different activiites and learned how to push the curling equipment.  Then we went to the café to have our lunch then after lunch we went back down to the curling rink. After that we did more activities and played jenga and different games on the ice too. Everyone had a fun time and then we got back to school and did some work.

DuPont Trip

Today P1/2 and any pupils who hadn’t been before took a trip to DuPont Teijin Films.  We learned about what they make at the plant and had a look around the factory at the big machines that they use to make the film.  Ian told us about some of the things their film is used for, like the shiny cover on the Capri Sun and Crunchie we got to take home! Thank you to Ian and the team at DuPont as well as the parent helpers who came along!


Maths Outdoors

Today P1/2 worked with the P6s to learn about positional language.  They gave instructions outside using language like next to, on top, between, under and in to place objects.

We then moved on to using robot commands to give directions using language like forwards, backwards, left and right.  We also worked on half turns and full turns.

Well done everyone!

P1/2 Feely Boxes

On Friday 28th September, P5/6 were very lucky to have a visit from P1/2.  They came to show us the fantastic Feely Boxes they had made as part of their work on The Senses. P5/6 loved trying out all of the different boxes and we thought the younger pupils had been very creative. P1/2 were very confident and enthusiastic while P5/6 were kind and encouraging. A BIG Thank you to P1/2 for sharing their great work with us.
