Here are this week’s winners of our Learning Aliens and the Citizenship Award. A lovely hot chocolate and biscuit was enjoyed by all.
Next week the awards will be for our Learning Aliens and a Literacy award per class.
This week we awarded two certificates per class. The first one was for the person who is using our Learning Aliens in their learning and the second was for progress in their Numeracy. All the children enjoyed a hot chocolate and a biscuit with the Headteacher as an award. Looking forward to seeing who will be our winners next week for the Learning Alien award and our new award for Citizenship. Good luck!
What a fantastic range of colours and styles we had coming through the school gates this morning to help raise money for Children in Need. The children were all very excited and looked fantastic. All classes had fun taking part in different activities throughout the day, within their classrooms. A final total will be announced at the start of next week. Thank you very much for your kind donations.
Well done to all the children who received an ‘Out of this World’ Award for displaying and using out Learning Aliens. The winners enjoyed a delicious cup of hot chocolate and a biscuit with Mrs McClymont as well as receiving their certificate. Who will receive the award next week? Will it be for Captain Resilient? Or being Curious Q? Or perhaps for using Reflect-O in their work?
Today we took part in a Remembrance Day Service outside in out Remembrance Garden. Sophie Hall, a secondary pupil, played the Last Post and Reveille on her trumpet. We participated in a 2 minute silence as well as reflecting on the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae. As part of our short service pupils laid their class wreaths and listened to the National Anthem.
What a scary bunch we had at Sheuchan Primary today. All the pupils had been replaced by witches, monsters and creatures of the night!
All classes organised a super day of Hallowe’en fun such as wrap the mummy, corners, pass the pumpkin and a blind fold guessing game between brussel sprouts and marshmallows. Eek! All the children had a fangtastic time!
Will you recognise any of these faces from the class photos below?
On Friday, 1st October we said goodbye to Mrs McColm, who is leaving Sheuchan Primary to take up the post of headteacher at Sandhead Primary and Drummore Primary. We held a graduation for her as well as a tea party in each class and had a sing song outside. Mrs McColm would like to thank parents for the lovely gift presented to her as well as the beautiful bunch of flowers she received from the Parent Council. She will be greatly missed here at Sheuchan as she was an enthusiastic, motivated and all round great teacher. We wish her well in her new job.
