Primary 7 were working with Mrs Duncan on a Respect Me workshop yesterday. Pupils shared their understanding of what respect looks like and sounds like. They also shared their views of what respect means to them through their ‘respect means’ speech bubbles.
Primary 7 pupils show cased their performance skills today at the finals of our Burns Poetry competition. 12 finalists were identified by Miss Clendinning and Mrs Graham. Judges Mrs and Mrs Cathro joined us for the difficult task of selecting the winners. Winners in the art competition were also picked today. Well done to all P7s for learning extracts from Tam O’Shanter and as always a fantastic effort with the entries in the art competition.
This week Primary 7 pupils visited Primary 1 and Primary 1/2 to share their learning. As part of their language and literacy work, P7 have been working on writing in Scots. They rewrote the Gruffalo in Scots and illustrated their own books. The classes then shared their work with P1 and P1/2 . Everyone had a wonderful afternoon sharing and learning together.
Congratulations to the Primary 7 football team who represented Dalbeattie Primary School today in the DGSFA Concept Soccer 7’s Tournament at Palmerstone Arena in Dumfries.

Mrs Duncan and Thomas McMurtrie were both very proud to have taken the team to the event today. The team are now looking forward to hearing where the next round of the tournament will take place.
On Friday afternoon last week a group of P7’s came down to P1 to help us plant various seeds as part of our ‘In the Garden’ topic work. We worked in groups and when we were finished we also had fun making plasticene flowers together. Last but by no means least the P7’s volunteered to read us some stories. Thank you P7 and come back soon!
