Primary 5 Visit Parliament

Primary 5 worked with Louise Harley, a representative from Hamlyns Oats a few months ago. They worked hard in groups to create products using oats, designing the packaging and presenting their product to Louise. Louise was highly impressed with the work they carried out and she invited two pupils to support her stand at an event at Scottish Parliament . This event was hosted by Business in the Community to bring schools and local businesses together. Madeeha and Ethan from P5 attended the event and presented their work with confidence to many different business representatives and MSPs. The evening was a great success and both pupils made the school very proud.


Dounans: Day 1 and 2

Primary 7 arrived at Dounans in the glorious sunshine on Monday and it has been non-stop since.

The pupils were allocated their dorms and activity groups before making their way to the canteen for a quick bite to eat. The pupils then endured the ordeal of making their beds! An hour later… the pupils made their way to their first activity. Whilst two groups made their way to build a den under the watchful supervision of Mr Gordon, the others remained on site and participated in a number of team building activities.

After the pupils returned, they ate their dinner and prepared for the evening’s activity. The pupils raced around the centre trying to win multiple games of ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ and they were all extremely tired as the headed back to their dorm. With lights out around 10pm all the pupils settled down to a good night’s sleep.

Day Two

Day two started with a full breakfast before the pupils prepared for their next activities. Two groups went canoeing and had a great day on the Loch. Two groups headed up the hills behind the centre and explored the scenery and wildlife there. Whilst the final group walked the Cat Walk and the Night Line.

It was a very eventful day and currently the pupils are participating in the evening activity ‘The Egg Challenge’.

We have tried to tweet photos of the pupils throughout the day so please ensure you follow us @braidbarps if you are not already doing so!!

World Book Day

Last Friday we celebrated World Book Day at Braidbar Primary.

The pupils all dressed for the event as their favourite characters, some of which can be viewed below. We also tweeted throughout the day so please follow us on our Twitter @braidbarps to keep up to date.

The pupils also contributed to a ‘Travelling Book’. The story started with the librarians setting the scene before making its way around the school. The result was a fantastically adventurous read which we would love to share with you!

P5 Visit Giffnock Library

Today, as part of our World Book Day Celebrations, Primary 5 visited Giffnock Library.

The aim of the visit was to look at the work of Robert Louis Stevenson; his stories and inspirations.

The pupils acted out parts of his life story – Miss Innes even got into character- before going on to visualise and discuss aspects of Jekyll and Hyde!

We hope you enjoy the photos.

World Book Day


We are the P5 and P6 Librarians and we would like to tell you about some exciting things coming up in school.

This Thursday, 3rd March, is World Book Day and to mark this day we are planning some events and activities to celebrate books and reading.

Here are some of the things that we will be organising in school this week:

  • Visits to the school library led by the Librarians
  • Audio books in the lunch hall
  • Writing a Braidbar ‘Travelling Book’ which each class will contribute to
  • More storytelling and reading in class
  • Creating a ‘Braidbar Top Ten Heroes and Villains’ from favourite stories


On Friday 4th March we think it would be fantastic to share books we love by dressing up as our favourite characters.

It would be great if you could help your child/children to choose a favourite character and come to school dressed up on Friday 4th March.   This isn’t a competition, and it should be fun so please don’t spend too much time or money on the costume. The more resourceful and creative the better!

Thank you for your support,

The Librarians
