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.
‘A Celebration Of Scotland’ will take place tomorrow, Friday afternoon, 24th of March in the gym hall. Please remember it is strictly a ticketed event.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
Children should be dressed in full school uniform (and our younger pupils should bring their wellies!)

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!
The classroom doors are looking superb thanks to all the children who recreated some famous book covers during our World Book Day house challenge. What do you think!
“I found the debate very competitive but overall it was an interesting experience.” P7 Ashley
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

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!

P6/7 has been learning about China and one of their main focuses was the Chinese zodiac. They had a learning assembly where they showed the story of the Chinese zodiac and some poems read by Gabriel Green, Adam Pollok and Max Wengel.
