Do watch Channel 5 News at 5pm tonight to see what was filmed in Dalbeattie Primary earlier today!
Below you will find a video of flat races from yesterday, along with pictures and videos from today. So pleased that we managed to complete the sports with the children today. P3 also completed their obstacle race this afternoon with class teachers. Well done to all the children for their fantastic efforts and sporting attitudes.
Well done to Isla Whalen who took part in a drawing competition during lockdown to drawing something good in lockdown. The competition was organised by her dad’s work.
Isla was the winner of the 0-4 section and received a £25 gift voucher for a store of her choice.
Isla’s big sister Erin also entered the competition. Although not a winner in her category, she did receive a gift for taking part.
Well done girls.
Two Outdoor Challenges

2: One Planet Picnic
As an end of term treat, why not plan a socially distanced ‘One Planet Picnic’:
What is a One Planet Picnic? What is different about a One Planet Picnic?
- It’s a picnic that is good for you and good for the planet. That means: Choose as many ingredients as you can that are local and seasonal, organically grown or ethically traded.
- Reduce food waste and packaging waste.
Why hold a One Planet Picnic? There are many reasons. Here are some we can think of:
- It’s a fun way to get to know some of the great foods and places local to you. Your money goes into the local economy, helping local people and businesses.
- You will begin to recognise and enjoy foods that are better for the environment. You will reduce packaging and food waste. You can build relationships with friends, family, colleagues and neighbours.
If you would like more background information from Eco Schools, you can click on the link below for more information. However, remember to carry out your picnic according to the most recent guidance from the Scottish Government in relation to which Phase of the Route map we are in at the time of your picnic.
Please do send a photograph of your picnic!
For the past few years, we have created a yearbook for our P7 Leavers and presented it to them as they have moved from Primary to Secondary School.
As we approach the end of term, we would like to take the opportunity to share this yearbook with everyone to help celebrate our P7s who are moving on to High School. We will miss you all very much
Thank you Miss Clendinning and Mrs Graham for creating the yearbook.
