P4 have had a great day celebrating World Book Day 2020. We had dress up fun, shared our favourites stories and books, did book related tasks and some of us enjoyed paired reading with our buddies in P3.
P4K our DFS Group, had a wonderful time celebrating too. We are reading plenty of books and managing to fill in our Reading Passports for the First Minister’s Reading Challenge.
Primary 2 and 3 girls joined Miss Hamilton and girls from James Hamilton Primary school at the Girls Brigade Carol Service in St Kentigern’s Church. They did well singing and reciting poetry. Well done.
Just to let you know there was a great offer of parental/guardian help for our trip to the cinema this Friday coming. If you have been chosen to join us, your child will have a note in their bag on Monday. If you weren’t chosen this time, sorry, but we hope you may volunteer another time.
Over the summer the P6 Dig for Victory effort has produced an abundance of fruit and vegetables. Pupils will return to school next week and can enjoy some of the produce we gave to the kitchen to prepare. Well done everyone in last sessions P2, P3, and P6.
Today as part of our Dyslexia Friendly Schools journey, the whole school was involved in NO PENS DAY WEDNESDAY. This is a national speaking and listening event which encourages exciting classroom discussion. Check out the blog for class photos.
Pupils in P3W enjoyed Roald Dahl Day 2018. Roald Dahl has been our “Author in the Spotlight” this term.
We have read ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ and we created our own magic medicine.
Pupils brought in their favourite Roald Dahl books, we participated in some mindfulness related to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and Owen took on the role of Willy Wonka. We also answered Maths problems related to many of the characters in Roald Dahl’s famous books.
At the end of the day the pupils took home a bookmark to use in their own books when reading for enjoyment.
We will have a vote to see who our next “Author in the Spotlight” is.
Stretching like Grandpa from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.
Last week children enjoyed our Water Fun Day and yesterday we all went down to the Dean Park to hide our decorated rocks. If you are at the Dean Park over the Summer holidays you may be able to find some of our rocks! #onthankrocks
The rock painting craze is taking over at the moment. Mrs Carten’s class have painted some rocks for Whiteley’s Retreat Rock Garden just outside Ayr. Whiteley’s Retreat is a holiday home for children, young people and their families who have cancer or other life altering illnesses. The rocks will be delivered to Whiteley’s on the 16th June.
If anyone wishes to donate decorated rocks they can bring them to Mrs Carten’s classroom before 15th June. All rocks should be bright, cheery and uplifting. Thank you.
P3 had a fantastic trip to Ayr Farm Park today. The sun was shining and the children got to see lots of animals and play on all of the different apparatus. Thank you to all of our parent helpers who also came along!
Primary 3 had a very special visitor today – a Viking!
He told us all about Viking life and about being a Beserker! Some children were allowed to try out his shield and weapons. Mrs Easter even tried to attack him with his own sword. It was really fascinating and brought our Viking topic to life.
Primary 3 pupils invited parents and carers to come and dine with us.
We got the chance to talk to many of you during our ‘Come Dine with Us’. We were able to discuss a variety of topics and were delighted that many parents offered their time to work with us to improve our school. Please look out for the opportunity to volunteer with our 60 minute make-overs.
