A Big Thank You!!!

We would like to say a HUGE thank you for all of the lovely Christmas gifts from P6/7! We have been well and truly spoilt. Thank you so much. We might need to get the joiners in to widen our doorways after eating all the chocolate!  

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! See you all in January,

Miss Shaw, Mrs Prentice, Mrs Macleod, Mrs Smith and Mrs Annfield.

P7 Flashmob

At the Christmas Party on Tuesday, just as we were ready for Pass The Parcel with Mrs MacLeod’s infamous forfeits, we heard the sound of Mariah Carey and took over the dancefloor. We spend Monday morning and Tuesday lunchtime rehearsing a flashmob dance with Mr Cook that we could perform on Tuesday night. It went down a storm. Check it out below:

P7 Christmas Party!

We had a fantastic time tonight at the P7 party. Kicking off with the Scottish Dancing, taking part in the games – including the forfeits, surprising the P7 teachers with a flashmob that we choreographed with Mr Cook yesterday, and plates of pizza and chocolate. All in all – a massive success.

‘Mission Ugly!’

Last week we saw Primary 6/7 take to the stage with the pantomime which they wrote, based on the storyline of Cinderella, ‘Mission Ugly!’.

019 020 022

The pantomime began with a twisted storyline which saw the poor Princess Cindy (Rachael L) being tricked by her evil brother Princey (Grant N) when they were only six years old. Luckily Cindy had been ‘found’ by the Baron (Josh) and Baroness (Betsy). Not so lucky however was the fact that Cindy had to live with her two ug . . . we mean beautiful sisters – Iona (Ewan M) and Emma (Orrin) Long-bottom.

026 027 028

Flash forward 15 years and there is a ball for Princey’s 21st birthday. After a little help from Buttons (Griffin), Q (Ryan), and of course, the Fairy God Mother (Nina/Amy W), Cindy finally gets to the ball.

030 031 032

Just when Princey and Maxi-Me (Angus) think they’ve stolen the crown, a spell from the Tooth Fairy goes wrong when Button blocks it with a metal tray. The clock strikes twelve, Cindy remembers everything.

035 034 039

At this point, Jeremy Kyle (Mr Cook) bursts into the audience after missing the ball. After a song, he sets off to fixing the situation with a DNA test (Daniel W) and a lie-detector test (Aaron P). A sudden twist towards the end – someone has let poor Cinderella down . . .

023 025 024

You’ll be glad to hear that in the end Cinderella and Buttons live happily ever after . . . I don’t know if we can say the same for Princey and Maxi-Me, condemned by the King (Aaron W) and Queen (Iona B) to live with Iona and Emma forever. Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Mr Cook aims to begin editing the video over Christmas. We’ll be in touch with more details once it is available.

Mission Ugly!

Hello everyone,

Last night, p6/7 had their first performance of MISSION UGLY…What a success it was! Everyone worked so hard to make sure things ran smoothly and to plan – from the Props and Costume people to the Technical and Scenery groups – what a fabulous job you have all done to make Mission Ugly a great Christmas Pantomime. Mrs Prentice, Mrs Macleod and myself are so proud of you all! A huge well done.

We hope the audience enjoyed themselves; we certainly have had lots of fun so far. Here are some snaps from behind the scenes…Miss Shaw

Pupil of The Month Award!

Hello everyone,

As it was our ‘Celebrating Achievements’ Assembly today, P6/7 walked away with three, super dooper star pupils of the month! Well done to Caitlin Thomson, Grant Nixon and Rachael Lamont.

Caitlin Thomson Caitlin is always enthusiastic about her work and tries her best in everything she does. She is a happy and helpful girl in the classroom and a super role model to us all. Well done Caitlin! 

Grant Nixon & Rachael Lamont – Grant and Rachael have excelled themselves with their contribution to our School Pantomime. They have given up a lot of their lunch-times and in the evenings they have been learning the script with their parents. A huge well done to the pair of you! 

I hope everyone has a cosy weekend and see you all on Monday,

Miss Shaw

Health and Well-Being!

In Health and Well-being this week, my class had to think about what makes them happy…..everything ranging from ‘Gummy Bears’ to ‘JLS’ were mentioned!

For a bit of fun and in order to do something artistic, we firstly had to draw the thing/things that make us happy on a large piece of black paper. We then had to shade/colour the image using Pastel crayons; the trick was to smudge the colour with our fingers – and yes it got a bit messy! Anyhow, they are looking beautiful! I’ll have to find some space to display them on the wall.

Here are some pictures of the designing stage…

Maths Homework!

Hello everyone,

Just a reminder for my Maths Group…

As we are working on converting fractions into decimals just now, we need lots of practice with these. Today we made our own pack of Flash Cards that we can take home and play with. It’s a very simple game to play with a partner – so find someone at home to test you.

I am hoping that by Friday, everyone will know their fraction/decimal conversions!

Good Luck.

Miss Shaw
