Health week continues with children meeting Lynn and Colin and their beautiful guide dogs Jason and Eva.  We learned about what it is like to be blind and how these wonderful dogs change the lives of blind people.

The children also learned about Makaton which uses signs and symbols to help people to communicate with one another.

The Sourdough bakery came to talk about where our food comes from.  The children could explore how food tastes, smells, feels and what noise it makes when you eat it.  Today the Science Centre are here to show us how our bodies work.


Neilston Show

A huge well done to Team Uplawmoor who represented our school at the annual Neilston Show.  They have trained hard in tug and relay over the past few weeks and we are proud of their positive attitude towards their training.

A special congratulations to the girls relay team (Carly, Toni,  Ashley, Mia, Mary- sub) who came first!  What a wonderful achievement.


Knex Challenge at the City of Glasgow College

Rian and Alexander did us proud today at the City of Glasgow College as they represented Uplawmoor Primary School at the Knex semi-final.  3,456 pupils from the West of Scotland took part in the challenge and 15 teams (each team consisting of 2 pupils) got through to this semi-final.   We cannot show their design as the competition is still going on, but they created a superb piece of work which they are so proud of.  Well done boys on getting this far!  What a wonderful achievement.

Friday Masterclasses get off to an Expert Start!

The boys and girls had their first taste of technologies, textiles and cooking masterclasses on Friday.   The Primary 6/7s are sewing coasters, Primary 4/5 started cooking with making a Greek Salad and Primary 1-3 are learning to work with wood and will be making pencil holders.

The children will rotate each fortnight to experience each masterclass.

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.
