Today we created a questionnaire using the software Microsoft Forms.  Since this is Walk to School Week, we decided to use this opportunity to find out how children travel to school.

We emailed our form to Primary 7. Once they respond to our questionnaire, we will communicate the result via the blog

MUGA Magic

I love the new MUGA. I enjoy playing football because there is a lot of space to move around. If you fall you’re protected because you’re not falling on concrete”, said Elliott.

Hawthorn Court Update

Yesterday we visited Hawthorn Court. This was our second visit. I met with June who told me all about her knitting. She has knitted for the sick babies at the Queen Elizabeth  Hospital. She has also made blankets for people in wheelchairs. These blankets are special because they have pockets to keep personal belongings. June’s knitting is so good that she has her work published in the Guiness  Book of World Records – she’s even met the Queen!

I showed June my beautiful scarf. It took me three months to knit my scarf and I always love wearing it…it is so cosy.

I love a Wednesday afternoon when I go to Hawthorn Court. It’s so nice meeting new people and learning all about them. I am already looking forward to next week. By Shuna

Visit to Hawthorn Court

The children enjoyed being at Hawthorn Court today where they entertained the ladies with their singing. dancing and conversation. The ladies thoroughly enjoyed their company and are already looking forward to us coming back next week.

Dragons’ Den

This term we will be learning about Innovative Scots and the impact they have had on our lives. We have also been given the opportunity to invent and design our own inventions and pitch them to Busby’s very own Dragons’ Den. The groups will have to impress the fearsome dragons with their entrepreneurial skills to win the prize. The panel members and prize will be revealed at a later date. Invitations to attend Busby’s Dragons’ Den will also be issued nearer the time.

Welcome to P5/4

Miss Doris would like to welcome you to the Primary 5/4 blog. The children have settled really well. The purpose of the blog is to keep you informed each week of the type of activities that your child will be involved in and to enable you to give your child as much support as possible.
