Well done to the pupils and staff of Uplawmoor who had a fantastic day playing dodgeball ALL DAY! Each class were split into teams who played against each other, then classes played against other classes and committees played against rival committees. The children all turned out in their sporty gear and had a great day being fit and active whilst raising money for the school (amount will be revealed in next couple of weeks). Thank you to all who sponsored a pupil and a huge thank you to Mrs Orr and her Pupil Council who organised the whole event.
The children can come to school dressed in their sporty gear tomorrow for our all day dodgeball event organised by the pupil council. Children must wear suitable clothes for sport so no jeans and no heeled shoes please. The children must be warm enough during playtime outdoors, so please remember to wear jogging bottoms if you plan to wear shorts during the day.
We look forward to playing against you all tomorrow!

We are really keen to convene a Parent Forum with a focus on how we share information and offer support on how to keep our children safe online. Parent Forums are a small group of representatives who meet to share ideas and work in partnership with the school, to contribute to school improvements.
If you are interested in becoming involved in this forum please contact the school office on 0141 570 7460 as we would love to hear from you.
Please feel free to have a look at your child’s class blog. They can be found under the red ‘PUPIL’ tab above, then click ‘Class Learning Blogs’ then select your class.
This will give your information as to what they have been learning in class!
Primary 4/5 have very exciting news. We entered a crazy creature competition which we had to write a story under a hundred words and we got a letter to say we are all getting our work published in a book! If we win the competition we get £1000 and if we are second we get £500. In third place you get £250 for your whole school . We will give it to the pupil council the money if we win!

Thank you to the parents and families who came to spend the afternoon with P2/3 learning about the Rights of the Child. Also, a big thank you to Mr Frame who came to talk to the pupils about the project he is working on to provide more sustainable energy to the people of Africa.
We also celebrated Max, Mhairi, Mikey and Sophie who all earned a brick for our skills for life, learning and work wall.
The pupil council spoke to the audience about their all day dodgeball event which the media committee will be promoting and Zara spoke of P4/5’s success in a writing competition. More details to follow!

Primary 2 are learning about the orchestra and had a shot of playing different percussion instruments like the drum, the triangle and the tambourine. Then we invited Ashley, Dylan and Matthew to come in to play their own instruments and teach us about the flute, saxophone and chanter.
P4/5 were given an area of the classroom to create a space which they felt would enhance their learning. After much discussion they decided to create a reading area. They then researched ideas and designed and created their own reading ‘den’. As you can see they are making good use of the space already!
“It’s nice and quiet in our den, so it’s good for reading’ Daniel
“It’s like a relaxing reading station with beanbags and pillows. It was good that we came up with the idea.” Alex
