Clay work

The children have loved working with clay. They made snails and leaves and were amazed when the pattern from the real leaf transferred onto the clay.

Newspaper Reporters

The children have been learning about the features of a newspaper.

There are headlines, photographs with captions and the sentences are written in columns.

The children enjoyed reading editions of First News. There are also puzzles, competitions and adverts.

Next week they are looking forward to being reporters.

Fitness Friday Fun

The children played chaos tig in the MUGA.


The children completed the Daily Mile in the field.

The Sports Reps set up lots of activities in the playground.

Tomato plants with Ruby’s Gran

Ruby’s Gran grows lots of fruit and veg. She told us all about it. She brought us 2 tomato plants to grow in class, Tumbling Tom and Cherry Falls.

Ruby helps her Gran plant tomatoes, rhubarb, beetroot and courgettes. She knows that you have to make little holes to put the seeeds in then cover them up. Plants need water and sunlight to grow.

Fun Fitness Friday

Lots of fun was had today . Thank you Mrs Forsyth and the Sports Committee for organising this.

The children LOVED the outdoor activities and fruit platter.

Visit from Scottish Water

Tracey from Scottish water came to tell us about how precious our water is.  Stewart said, ‘You need to save water by turning the tap off when you are brushing your teeth. Emily said, ‘You don’t put baby wipes down the toilet as it blocks it.’ Tracey told us about fatbergs. Amelia said, ‘They are as big as a double decker bus and block the pipes.’ Mohammad said ‘The average person in Scotland uses 150 litres of water every day and it costs Scottish water £1 a day to supply water to each house.’

Fairtrade Brunch

We watched a movie about where bananas come from. We ate 2 things made from Fairtrade chocolate. Niamh said ‘It was so much fun because we got to dress up in our pyjamas. We got a quiz about Fairtrade.’ Alex is the Fairtrade Rep. He said, ‘The people at the bottom of the supply chain it is getting harder for them because they are getting less money, only 11p per banana.’
