Thankyou to everyone who came to P5’s Celebration of Learning. The children were so excited to share the school forest with their special guests. Well done boys and girls!

Today Primary 1 had a super new set of teachers in the class when Primary 2 children came in to give them a computing lesson! Primary 2 showed Primary 1 how to log on and then gave them a quick tour of Kodu Game Lab and 2simple 2paint on the laptops.
Primary 1 had a great time and were very grateful to Primary 2 for sharing their knowledge. Mrs Davidson and Miss Guy learned some new computing skills too.
Thank You Primary 2!
Primary 7 had a great show of their learning this term on Wednesday 8th of February. They did a fantastic job of showing off their French speaking as well as their style in the fashion show ‘Defile de Mode.’ The science demonstrations kept everyone very interested and informed especially the fake blood making! Some of you were even put through your paces with Reign and Ben’s shape quiz. Thank you again for coming along. The children really enjoyed the afternoon and did so well.
P7 have been raising funds for their end of primary school trip. We have been decorating mugs with Scottish designs including our own family tartans and crests. On Thursday we went across to St Joe’s and Mrs Chalk taught us how to make shortbread to sell with the mugs. Thank you to everyone who supported our Enterprise, it’s been fun and very worthwhile. Here’s a few photos of us baking!
P2 have been learning about recycling and different building and what they are used for. Their homework challenge was to build a 3D model of a famous landmark whether it was local or from around the world. What super effort we had for everyone. P3 and P4 came for a visit and the P2’s were able to tell them all about their buildings and how they made them.
Today in Primary 1 we celebrated our Healthy Eating topic with a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. We all brought in a teddy and made our own healthy wrap to enjoy on our rugs in the classroom. We played games and listened to some great teddy bear songs. We even grew teddy bear ears for the occasion, see if you can spot them in our photographs!
Our School Sport Committee met today to discuss ways our school could achieve a Sport Scotland Gold Award. We have made an action plan and will be promoting different types of sports for all ages in our school. Watch this space for more information on how we are getting on!
On Thursday 26th January, four of our talented pupils from P6 and P7 performed in the Rotary Club Speech Making Competition. The title for their speech was ‘What Makes a Good Neighbour?’
The children entertained the audiences and the judges were very impressed with the standard of all the children.
A special congratulations goes to Matthew who will now represent our school in the final in March.
Well done we are very proud of you all!
Yesterday Primary 1 had a very busy day as we had our Celebration of Learning. We invited our grown ups in to share the learning we have been doing in our Health and Wellbeing topic.
Our activities included a food sorting challenge, creating an eatwell plate, using our senses to describe different foods and making some very yummy fruit kebabs!
It was great fun sharing our learning and we think even the grown ups learned a few new facts about keeping healthy!
