Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The event is held worldwide annually encouraging us to turn off our non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m as a symbol for our commitment to the planet. Earth hour takes place on Saturday night, so the Eco-Committee decided we would celebrate Earth hour this afternoon with lots of outdoors activities and games.

Bollywood Dancers

Mrs Rasul’s Bollywood dancers did us proud at the dance champs on Wednesday evening. A big thank you to Ashley and Mia’s mum who helped with hair! We are looking forward to seeing them perform at tomorrow’s Celebration of Scotland event.

Badminton at Eastwood High

Good team effort from the Primary 6/7 badminton team who went along to Eastwood High to play some friendlies last night.  We will be starting a lunchtime club after Easter as the standard is so high!  Well done to Mary, Ashley, Carly, Mia, Adam, Dylan, Max and Cameron. Keep up the training for the next competition!

P6 Bikeability

What a lovely day for some cycling!  Despite the wind and rain the Primary 6s did a great job outside learning their safe starts and demonstrating their control round a challenging course.  Well done Primary 6.  No complaints about cold fingers and frozen toes (except from Mrs Tait!)

P2/3 Art

Primary 2/3 have been studying the work of Steven Brown and created their own McCoos.  They used oil pastels and focused on colour and line to create texture.

Have a look at their work below.

 

 

Lord Provost Debate

P7 have been working hard on their debating skills and put them to the test at the Council Chambers on Monday.  They decided to debate ‘Celebrities make good role models’.

“I found the debate very competitive but overall it was an interesting experience.”  P7 Ashley

“I am glad that the ‘for’ side won and the ‘against’ side lost.  Guess what house I was supporting?” By Mary P7

 

World Book Day Fun

The whole school enjoyed celebrating World Book Day.   There were lots of literacy activities planned during the day including a reading tombola, where children were given a ticket which linked to a book which they could read with their buddy.  The house challenge was to create a book cover on each classroom door.  The doors look wonderful! 

It was lots of fun because we dressed up as our favourite book characters such as Elsa and Anna.    Elyza P1

I think Rowan in P3 and Rowan in P1 looked amazing.  Olivia P1

I was dressed as Horrid Henry from Horrid Henry’s underpants.  I was really proud of my costume  Jack P2

Cross Country Champs

Pupils from Uplawmoor went to Rouken Glen park to compete in a cross country race. The runners were Toni, Jodi, Ashley, Mckenzie , Dylan, Adam, Christopher and me! We all did very well and finished the whole course.  Our running club is now finished and it’s been great fun.  Thanks to the parents who joined in with us on our final session.  Great effort!  By Alex Goldie P5
