Name the Bear Competition

The boys and girls in Primary 1a took part in an NHS  ‘Name the Bear’ competition after reading a story called ‘Jenny and the Bear’.

Guess Who Is Back!!!!

The Rookie Rockstars will return to Balornock Primary School tomorrow for a one off reunion concert. We are looking forward to welcoming them back to our school and we can wait to see what surprises they have in store for us.

Our Home Learning Project

The boys and girls in primary 1a made their own crowns and tiaras at home as part of their ‘Castles’ home learning project. We had the choice of whether we wanted to design a 3D crown or tiara or decorate a 2D version. We used lots of different materials such as glitter, jewels, gems, feathers, stickers and pom-poms to decorate our crowns and tiaras and we think the results are absolutely fantastic!  

Our Trip To Sky Academy

Today some boys and girls from P1 to P6 got to visit Sky Academy. The children got to visit behind the scenes on an exclusive tour of Sky Studios in Livingston and worked with all the latest technology to make their own TV report in Sky Skills Studios. They made a video report of our Big Balornock Story – Forgetful Hamish, that was created by the whole school as part of our Literacy Week.

Welcoming a Baby

In Primary 1a, we have been learning all about welcoming a new-born baby into a family! We all had lots of suggestions for great babies’ names, but we could only choose one and so the name David was selected. We worked with a partner to think about some of the things a new-born baby would need which included a family, a pram, toys, milk and lots more ideas!
