As part of our Health Week, Mrs Crawford taught every pupil how to make delicious milkshakes.
We each combined some different fruits, milk and ice cream to make a yummy milkshake! By Megan-Jane P5 and Max Wengel P4
We had a serious talk from the transport police on Tuesday. First we were introduced to the transport policemen and the two ladies from Scotrail.
One of the policemen put up some posters which encouraged children to be safe at train stations and we discussed these in pairs. It was a very interesting visit and we now know how to keep safe when we are travelling by train.

Wee G Bus
After the video we played some games including air hockey, Just Dance, Fifa 14 and Sonic. We hope to get on the Wee G bus again! By Dean and Amy P5
All of the pupils were lucky enough to take a trip to the Uplawmoor Hotel to watch Chef Alan and his helper Elaine, make fruit smoothies, wraps and a huge fruit salad. Mrs Crawford gave us some tips to stop the filling from falling out when making a savoury wrap and Alan helped us to chop up fruit for our fruity delights. We had so much fun!
A Day in the Life of a Farmer
Mr John McLeod kindly came to visit our school today to talk about dairy and meat farming. The children learned about how dairy cows are milked, how much milk they produce and what happens to the milk.
Mr McLeod also told us about cows which are bred for meat and explained how his farm land is maintained.
