Lights, Camel, Action!

fullsizerenderThank you to the parents, friends and family who came to our Carols and Shortbread Concert last Wednesday.   The children worked very hard to learn their lines and perfect their singing voices and we hope you enjoyed the festive entertainment.  A special well done to the Primary 1 -3 children who put on a fantastic, funky nativity .  You were all superb!

Carols and Shortbread

singWe are looking forward to entertaining our friends and family at our annual Carols and Shortbread concert on Wednesday 14th December, at 1.45pm.

All children should be dressed smartly in school uniform (shirt and tie if possible) for the carols and singing performances.

Our Street Dance crew should make sure they bring ‘street gear’ for their performance.  Clothes such as joggies, hoodies, t-shirts,  caps and of course trainers, is ideal!   Most of the children have a quick change, so clothes which are easy to get on and off are ideal!st

We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!

Panto Time!

33111_fullJust a quick reminder that we are off to the Panto ‘OH YES WE ARE’ on Tuesday morning.  All children should bring a packed lunch as they will eat their lunch in the theatre during the interval.

The children will be dismissed from school at 3.15pm as normal.




Uplawmoor Christmas Fayre

c0d863da41b9209fba46e5a4e84dd81bLast weekend the PSA hosted a Christmas Fayre to raise money for the school.  There were lots of stalls to shop at.  You could buy frames, flowers, cakes, wood carved animals and lots of crafts.  There was also a tombola and a place where you could have a hot drink and a cake.

We are very grateful for the effort and time the parents put in to host a wonderful fayre.

christmas-jumpersTo celebrate the Christmas Fayre on Saturday, we are getting into the Christmas spirit and inviting pupils and staff  to wear a Christmas jumper to school!  (Remember, we still expect to see school skirts and trousers!)

House Sleigh Challenge

WinnersThe boys and girls were challenged to build a sleigh for Santa out of junk modelling.  Each house had 2 bags of recycled objects and a box of crafts to make the most creative vehicle for Santa to travel in.

The children worked collaboratively and created four absolutely stunning sleighs.    The winning house was Libo with 46 points out of a possible 50 for their ‘Rudolph Roller’ design (and a big well done to Ollie and Zoe who played Donner and Blitzen sprinkling reindeer dust en route).    Well done to everybody involved!

Christmas Fayre – Update

The Uplawmoor PSA would like to thank everyone who worked so hard over the last few weeks and on Friday and Saturday in particular, to make the School Christmas Fayre such a success.

P6/7 worked hard in the beauty Parlour painting and nails and faces and tattooting and decorating crazy hairstyles, as well as running the toy stall and mini tombola.

Thank you also to all the parents and staff manning the tea rooms, selling crafts, minding Santa and running raffles and knocking doors to sell tickets.  Thank you to all our stall holders and everyone who came to support us on Saturday.  It was very busy with lots of gifts and beautiful crafts to choose from.

Massive thanks also to Mr Wright who had to come in very early to make sure the tea urn was on and to Mrs Watson for her endless patience answering questions, printing tickets and most importantly opening the door for us many times!  

We are delighted to report that the Christmas Fayre raised a whopping £1374 this year.  Well done to all!

We look forward to helping out at the Carols and Shortbread and would like to wish all the pupils, staff and parents of Uplawmoor Primary School a very Happy Christmas!
