Scottish Opera – Tam O Shanter

On Tuesday the 20th June P7 joined with St Ninian’s Primary School to perform with the Scottish Opera.  Mrs Duff and the class teachers of P5, 6 and 7 at St Andrew’s have been preparing for this amazing day by learning songs in advance.  The Scottish Opera team are amazingly talented and work extremely hard to put together the show in one morning.  The children found the experience great fun and very rewarding.  They looked superb in the costumes for the final performance.  Here is just a little taster of how well they all did!

Mabie Farm Park Fun

On Tuesday this week Primary 1 went on a trip to Mabie Farm Park.  We had a super time and the weather was great.   There is a new really fast slide which we loved going on.  The pet handling and straw barn were also very popular.  Mrs Gilligan even got a lesson on how to somersault on the trampolines!  We had a brilliant day and were all tired out on our return (especially the grown ups!)

P3 Farming Fun

On Friday the 16th June,  Mrs Jamieson from The Royal Highland Educational Trust (RHET) came to visit P3 about their Farm and Food topic. She had already organised for us to visit a beef farm and on Friday she brought in samples of various crops and taught us more about dairy production. All our wee farmers in training ground up wheat seeds to produce flour and we even worked in teams to turn milk into butter.

We ate the delicious butter we had make with other healthy Scottish produce and had a fantastic morning. By visiting the farm and by preparing the butter the children are becoming more aware of the journeys that food makes from source to consumer.



Outdoor Measure

Today Primary 1 went out to our woodland area to use our measuring skills.  Firstly, we all found a stick and arranged them from longest to shortest.  Then we chose a number of different things in the woods to measure using our hand spans and feet.  Here are some photos of us busy at work:

P6 Trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park

On Wednesday 31st May, P6 enjoyed a sunny, fun filled day at Blair Drummond. After the bus tour of the safari park, the children made the most of their day, enjoying boat trips to chimpanzee island, the zip wire and pedal boats as well as a brilliant sea lion show.


P5-7 World of Work Afternoon




On Thursday 8th June P5-7 participated in a World of Work afternoon. 16 presenters gave up their time to come along and talk to the children about their jobs. It was a very informative afternoon for the children and they asked lots of interesting and pertinent questions. Feedback given by the presenters at the end of the afternoon was very positive and, in particular, they commented on the courteous, well mannered and attentive behaviour of the children. We are grateful to all of the adults for giving up their time, and hope you will return again.

Queen of the South Visit

This morning the Queen of the South elect visited our school with her attendants and the Cornet and the Cornet’s Lass.  It was especially exciting for us this year as the Queen, Molly Hyslop, is a former pupil of St Andrew’s.  It was lovely to see them and the horses.   Our own school attendant Emilia, presented Molly with a gift from the school.   We wish them all, especially Molly and Emilia, the best of luck on Saturday and hope the sun shines!

Poetry Celebration

This term in St Andrew’s all classes have been studying Poetry.  We decided to celebrate this by displaying some of our work in the hall for all classes to see.  There are  lovely examples of the children using their senses and descriptive phrases to create some beautiful images for the reader.

Primary 5 Visit to St Joe’s Science Labs – Super Scientists!

Primary 5 have been learning about Changing Materials in their science focus with Mrs Kerr this term. They were set a homework challenge where they had to solve a Desert Island Dilemma, and think of ways they could separate salt and sand from water, to ensure the water was clean enough to drink.  We then visited St Joseph’s Science labs, where, with the help of Miss McCormick and Miss McGarva, they tested out their theories.
