Today we welcomed our new Primary 1 children to a taster lunch event to try out our school dinners. This was enjoyed by all. Thank you to the kitchen staff for organising this important transition event for us. Later in the week we look forward to the children joining us again for our ‘moving up day’ on Thursday afternoon. Looking on were also our Primary 7 buddies. Our Primary 1 children will meet their buddies soon.
The children who are going to school after the holidays have been taking part in some transition activities. We have had a look around the infant department, had a story in the P1 classroom and playing with the P1s and P2s during their break. We will continue to build on these experiences in the coming weeks.
On Thursday 30th March P7 took part in three different workshops run by Seafood in Schools at Dalbeattie High School.
The children were given opportunities to taste different seafoods, to watch a cooking demonstration and to find out more about where our seafood comes from and how it is caught.
The children had a great day and many were surprised by how much they liked some of the seafoods they had never tasted before.
Thank you to Mrs Houston for organising this experience!
On Monday 20th March Primary 7 attended a Spanish Day at Dalbeattie High School as part of their transition programme. The day gave the children the opportunity to be introduced to Spanish and take part in lots of fun activities.
These activities included Zumba, Tapas making, learning the language of the fan and a treasure hunt around the school learning the names of the subjects in Spanish.
The children had an absolutely fantastic day and were really motivated and engaged in all of the activities.
A huge thank you to all of the High School staff involved in planning and organising this event. It was a superb day!
