Primary 5 and Primary 5/6 worked hard with musicians from Feis Rois to learn tunes on the tin whistle. They celebrated their learning by inviting family members and other classes to a special tin whistle concert. Well done everyone!
This term P6 and P5/6 have been very fortunate to have had a 6 week block working with Mr Dinning, a sound engineer to create their on music using the Magix Music Maker programme on the computer.

Today we had Mrs Ross come and cook for us! She made some fantastic Japanese stir fry food with Udon noodles. We then had traditional Japanese pancakes with fresh fruit and cream. We loved it! We also tasted Wasabi peanuts and seaweed crackers which were very spicy!
We all had a great time and we would like to thank Mrs Ross for taking the time to cook for us, we thoroughly enjoyed it!
The wet and miserable weather today didn’t stop some of our P6 and P7 pupils from getting on their bikes and taking part in an ibike obstacle course with Katie our ibike leader. Children braved the rain and had a fantastic time developing their cycling skills going over various ramps, jumps and beams.
The first group of Primary Fives visited Carlingwark Loch yesterday with Mrs Graham and Mrs Robison to carry out some fun activities with the Outdoor Education team. The children were split into three groups and took part in sailing, kayaking and canoeing. All the children had a great time and were very enthusiastic throughout. Some even braved the cold and snow to have a little swim at the end!
Over the past week, P3-7 have been taking part in Sumdog’s local contest. The contest challenged the children on their maths knowledge and finished at 8pm yesterday.

Well done everyone!!
