2016-2017 is a busy year for the pupils of Wellshot Primary. Here are some of their amazing experiences.
Primary 4/3 undertook the challenge of Clyde in the Classroom. Clyde in the Classroom is designed to promote awareness of river ecology among young people and help to introduce the brown trout back into our rivers.
The children were responsible for raising brown trout from eggs in a special classroom hatchery before releasing them into the local burn in Tollcross Park which runs into the River Clyde.
The responsibilities of the children included checking the water temperature and feeding the hatchlings. The children took their responsibilities seriously and successfully hatched and released a number of fish.
Congratulations to Primary 4 who performed at the Modern Languages Award in Glasgow City Chambers. The pupils also gave a performance to the whole school at an assembly to showcase their talents.
Vous étiez magnifique.
Primary 5 took part in a scavenger hunt around the school grounds to learn fantastic facts about the solar system. The teacher did not make things easy by hiding clues in some unusual places but the being solar super sleuths, the children would not be defeated and found all of the clues.
Following their successful trip to the High Court in Glasgow, Primary 6 had the opportunity to visit the High Court of Scotland in Edinburgh. This was a great day and opportunity for the class to experience a day in the life of a court.
In December, Primary 3 were invited to participate in a sports event at Eastbank Academy which was organised and run by senior pupils who were completing a qualification in Sports Leadership. The children participated in lots of fun activities and got to meet champion athlete, Guy Learmonth who is the current 800m indoor champion.
The whole school participated in World of Work Week. It was a huge success and a BIG Wellshot thank you to everyone who gave up their time to share their experiences and answer questions from the children.
Osiligi Warriors visited the school in September.
Primary 1 visited a farm in October
Primary 6 tried a successful case at the Mock Court in the High Court in Glasgow in November.

In December, Primary 1 visited the Glasgow Science Centre and became scientists for the day by exploring all the exhibits.
Some pupils from primary 5-7 had a fabulous time at Blairvadach Outdoor Centre. They participated in a variety of outdoor activities and despite the cold they all had a great time.
Primary 7 choir brought joy to many as they sang to the residents of a local care home and community group. They sang a compilation of well known Christmas Carols which their audience knew and could sing along.
