Girls Football Team

Our Girls football team played at the Dumfriesshire Girls Football Festival on Monday 18th February.  Despite some awful weather conditions, the girls played extremely well, winning all their games and showing greats sportsmanship to the other teams.   Well done to them all and thanks to everyone who came along to support the team.

P4/3 -Africa

P4/3 has been learning about Africa and used what we found out to inspire our Nobleskills modelling sessions . We had a great time creating a clothes peg safari. We learned that the Ndebele people decorate their homes and clothes with bright patterns and had a go at this ourselves by making models of their huts.


P4 – Swimming Lessons

P4 pupils recently took part in swimming lessons at DGOne@Dumfries Ice Bowl during Jan/Feb. The pupils were a credit to the school and their families. Super behaviour and effort all round! All pupils should have brought home a leaflet with further details about swimming lessons.


P6 – Term 3

Nobleskillz Modelling

During their recent Nobleskillz input P6 have been cooking, upcycling rubbish to create some fabulous art work, line dancing, model making and are currently singing. They have enjoyed all activities so far. During their modelling sessions they were challenged to reproduce a Spanish or a Scottish building in line with this terms theme. I think they made a fantastic job.

Feis Rois

P6 have been benefitting from input from the Feis Rois musical initiative. They are learning Scottish and Gaelic songs and learning to play the Ukulele and Djembe drums. They have had a great time and enjoying this experience.


Let’s get Sporty

Every year the P6 year group get the chance to support the Nursery children when the Let’s get Sporty group come in to work with the children. They are having a great time working with the children, some of which will become their buddies next session.


P6/5 -Term 3

Lego WeDo

Our school borrowed Lego WeDo kits from the Raise team. We were excited to try the kits out in class.  Following the step by step instructions we built fans, Mars rovers, glowing snails and motion sensors.  We can’t wait for our Lego WeDo project now we know how the parts work.

Camouflage Painting

We have been learning about how animals adapt to survive. This week we explored how animals change colours to camouflage against their environment to help animals find food and stop becoming food.  Miss Stewart challenged us to camouflage a hand against various backgrounds.  What an exceptional job achieved by all.



Our Fantastic Beasts – Lego WeDo Project

Miss Stewart challenged us to build our own fantastic beast, working in pairs as a team to complete our moving projects (that’s right – we needed a moving part for our animal :o). With lots of trial and error, combined with hard work and communication – WE DID IT!

This Weeks Achievements

Congratulations to our Star of the Week winners this week. They were presented with their posters at assembly which are full of lovely comments about them written by their fellow classmates. A copy is also put on display  at reception on the Star of the Week board.

P6 and P7 recently took part in a Speechmaking competition run by Dumfries Rotary Club. Isabella, Molly-Mae, Bethan and Riley were chosen to represent Noblehill. Well done!
