P6 Solar System projects

Mrs Graham and Mr Maxwell are absolutely astounded at the effort P6G have put into making their space projects . The children were given the task of finding out about an aspect of space that interested them and create a 3D model with accompanying research .  There are planets, rockets, space ships, aliens and facts galore! The work that the children (and some parents !) have put in is truly wonderful and we are looking forward to looking at each project in turn.

Well done to everyone!

World Book Day 2017

We have had a fantastic day in school celebrating World Book Day. A great number of our pupils came dressed as a character from a favourite book and brought along a copy to share with their classmates. The costumes were terrific, as you will see from the pictures. We are also very grateful, this year, to Dalbeattie Book Shop whose donation of many books has meant that we could allow each pupil to select a free book from previous years of World Book Day publications. The children have also been given their World Book Day 2017 tokens which can be exchanged either  for a free 2017 World Book Day or can be used as £1 towards any book or audio book over £2.99.

















New School Badge Winner

We are delighted to announce that Lainey Ireland from P7  is the winner of our new school badge competition. Lainey’s badge was one of four final designs that pupils have been voting on over the past two weeks. Lainey’s badge has now been copy righted to the school for use on school clothing and documents.

Congratulation Lainey.

P6G pendulum painting galaxies

P6G had a great afternoon experimenting with colour and the method of pendulum painting!

We used pictures of galaxies as a stimulus and created elliptical patterns with paint. It was not easy and is probably best done outside. There was paint everywhere!! We worked well as a team and shared thoughts about the height of the bottle and size of shape.

Have a look at our galaxies .

Well that was our last Christmas in this school…. We thought you might like to see our hall decorations (photographed kindly by Mrs Blackwood.) They were fantastic this year and we are very grateful to the staff and pupils who put so much effort into making our hall look so special for its last Christmas as a Primary School. We haven’t decided yet about what we will do with all the beautiful nativity pictures so watch this space….
