Head Teacher’s Awards 17.1.20

Today, several pupils were awarded with much deserved certificates for being successful learners and effective contributors, with many good role models showing good focus, concentration and excellent attitude to their learning and the school community. Also presented were two special certificates, chosen by Mrs Gray for skills in PE. The whole of Primary 7 were awarded for their resilience and determination during cross country in poor weather conditions. Excellent!


Assembly 19.12.19

Today we presented prizes to the children who had won the Accelerated Reader raffle prizes (tickets awarded to pupils scoring full marks in book quizzes) and to the children who received first, second or third places in the JRSO competition to design a poster about being seen on dark morning and after school times. Also drawn were the winners of the P1/2  Christmas Quiz as part of the class enterprise. The winners were Lucy and Finlay.


Christmas in Church End of Term Service

Today, we celebrated the start of the Christmas holidays with another wonderful service in Dalbeattie and Kirkgunzeon Parish Church. The Primary 7s re-told the original First Christmas story, in a ‘Pop Up Nativity,’ with some help from the audience with actions and words and the Primary 3s dressed up as the original Nativity characters of Mary, Joseph, Angels, Wise Men and Shepherds. The whole congregation thoroughly enjoyed their audience participation, interspersed with some wonderful traditional carol singing.


P1 Christmas Enterprise

Last week P1F had a great afternoon selling their Christmas crafts to parents and relatives following a busy week of creating, gluing and glittering! We would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for coming and supporting us and helping us raise a fantastic £248.50!! We think this is amazing! Thank you also to Mrs Fitzsimmons’ mum for knitting our Santa and Elf for our raffle and to all of you who bought a ticket.  The winners were Sam in P1 and Kourtney in P6.


P5D Pneumatics Challenge

Primary 5 pupils were challenged by Mrs Dyson to design and create a Pop up Puppet using pneumatics. Pupils worked collaboratively with a partner and used their problem solving skills along with the design process to create imaginative models. Pupils are taking the models home to share with their families and they will be able to demonstrate how to change the system to a hydraulics system. Well done Primary 5 for great teamwork and creativity!


Primary 1 /2 School in the Past Day

Today, we had our dressing up day as a fun ending to our topic work on Our School in the Past and Present. the children came to school dressed as Victorian school children. We had a formal writing lesson with our tables and chairs arranged in seats. We then made a Victorian style Christmas card followed by a session learning about old fashioned playground games. Then, in the afternoon, our learning was all brought together in our small group dram sketches where the children played the parts of teachers and pupils. Mrs Howie filmed these and will share with the class later this week. All of these activities follow on from previous learning such as: visits from Mr Henderson and Mr Murray from the Museum to talk about school in the past; Mrs Murray to talk about life in the present school; a tour of the High School and a walk to the old Primary School on Southwick Road.
