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.



Terrifying Tsunamis

painting-300x225In P4/5 we have been learning all about tsunamis and their impact. We have learnt how a tsunami occurs, where they are most likely to happen and how to create a good warning system. This is all part of our topic “Water”. We are also learning all about the water cycle in Science. Primary 4/5 have been creating a giant tsunami for their classroom wall. We’ll post a picture when we are finished!

Invent your own Magical Professor Competition

Primary 4/5 entered a national competition to create a Professor who worked at Hogwarts. They let their imagination loose and came up with some fantastic ideas. Sadly we didn’t win so now we’ll have to find some other way to go on a trip to London…

Great effort though from our P4/5 artists!comp  Here is Mhairi’s Professor.

Oliver Curle – Competition Finalist

ocA huge congratulations to our very own Primary 1 pupil, Oliver Curle, who has been chosen as a finalist in MacTaggart and Mickel Homes’ Swimmer drawing competition.  They were extremely impressed with his artwork which was ‘colourful and well designed’.  Champion swimmer Mark Deans, who came to visit the children, will now look at the finalists’ artwork from ourselves, Mearns Primary and Howwood Primary and decide on an overall winner.  The winning school will receive £100 in sports vouchers.  Good luck to all the finalists and we will keep you posted on Oliver’s entry!oliver-curle-2

P4/5 are learning about Sound Travel

sound sound1Primary 4/5 have been learning about sound and how it travels through air molecules.

Rian  “I  have learned how sound travels in air molecules.   I have also learned how sound travels faster through water and solids than through air.”

Catherine “I enjoyed doing a poster in my IDL jotter.”

P6/7 are called to Glasgow’s High Court!

photo The pursuers and defenders of Primary 6 and 7 were called to court on Monday 26th January in the case of Mrs Telfer vs Talk and Text Communications.   Uplawmoor Primary School took part in the West of Scotland category and were competing against two other Primary Schools in Glasgow.

The children did a wonderful job and representing their clients and have worked so hard to ensure they were prepared for court.  Amongst the children we had witnesses, solicitors, reporters, gown makers and court artists.
A special well done to Niamh who was the defending solicitor and Erin who was the pursuing solicitor.  You both took on a very important (and scary) role and made us all very proud.

This was a once in a lifetime experience for the children and allowed them to apply their learning in a real life context.   We await the results…


Christmas Wreaths by Primary 6/7

The class of Primary 6/7 would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs McQuaker, Mrs Pollok and Mrs Dolling who all gave up their time to come into our class and help the children create some wonderful Christmas wreaths.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed using their creative skills and we look forward to selling them in the run up to Christmas.

Eco Poster Competition

Miss Dawson-Bowman’s Eco Committee set the boys and girls a challenge to design an Eco-friendly poster.  Each class had an eco subject to focus on, such as, recycling or saving energy.

The Eco committee judged each entry and decided on the winning posters from each class (see below).

The winers were Ruby, Alexander, Cameron, Megan-Jane and Shannon.

These posters will be professionally printed and displayed on the ‘Eco Wall’ in our gym hall.  The standard was so high that Miss Dawson-Bowman announced there will be awards for runners up.

Well done to our winners and all who took part.7

End of term Show

P4 – 7 have been working on our summer show with Zoe.  The show will take place in the middle of June.  The play is based on several traditional fairy tales which have been re-written by Zoe and the pupils of Primary 4, 5, 6 and 7. 

We have been rehearsing on our stage every Wednesday lunchtime and we will be starting work on our props and staging this week.    The final performance will take place on the 19th June.

We can’t wait!
