Sports Day at Uplawmoor

The children worked in their houses to gain lots of points towards winning  the prestigious House cup (to be revealed on Tuesday). The rain stayed off and the staff, pupils, friends and families had a great time spectating and taking part in a variety of sporting activities. Well done to the winning house on the day – Libo!

Egg Hunt Fun

The children had fun hunting for eggs with their friends this afternoon. 

We would like to say Happy Easter to all the pupils, friend and families of Uplawmoor Primary and enjoy the break.

Remember, school closes at 2.30pm tomorrow!

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

Stars in Our School

Stars in Our Schools is a celebration of school support staff who work hard in schools to support staff and children. This year Stars in Our Schools day is today,  Friday 25 November.   We held an assembly to celebrate our wonderful support staff in school.  Each class then completed some activities to highlight how much we appreciate all they do for Uplawmoor Primary.

UNISON promotes this day as an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful work they do every day and to make sure the world knows just how vital they are to children’s education.

Have a look at some of our pupils’ beautiful work!dscn3710

Smoking in Cars legislation

smoking-in-cars-photoFrom 5th of December 2016, a person smoking in a car which is carrying passengers under 18 years of age will be breaking the law. Offenders could face a £100 fixed penalty fine.

The Smoking Prohibition (Children in Motor Vehicles) (Scotland) Act 2016, creates a new criminal offence, committed by any adult (aged 18 or over), where that adult smokes in a private motor vehicle in the presence of a child (under 18years of age), while that vehicle is in a public place. The aim of the legislation is to protect children and young people from the harmful effects of exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS) in a confined space.

Exposure to second-hand smoke in cars involves higher concentrations of health-threatening chemicals than in larger, open areas. Even if the windows are opened or air conditioning is used, harmful particles can remain in the atmosphere long after the visible smoke has disappeared. The restriction of a vehicle also means individuals are unable to move away from the smoke.

We all have an obligation to protect children and young people from the risks to their life and health, caused by the exposure to second hand smoke and ensure that every child in Scotland has the best start in life. Growing up in a smoke-free environment is an important part of that.
