Dodgeball Day

img_00231

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.

Friday Dodgeball Event

dodge-ball-vectorThe 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!

Primary 2 Learn About The Orchestra

By Rowan P3 and Jack P2.

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’s Reading Area

img_2450P4/5 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
