The Abronhill Regeneration Forum has commissioned Sculptor James Elliott (James Elliott Chainsaw Sculpture) to design a wooden structure for the Broom Road Park. James visited us, Whitelees Primary and St Lucy’s Primary to discuss his design and gave a live demonstration of his skills. You can see the finished product here. The scultpure for the park will be bigger and have more detail relating to the Abronhill community. Watch out for it and enjoy it. Thank you to the Forum for always looking to enhance our community! @WhiteleesPS @stlucysabronhil @abronhillunited @AbronhillF
Primary 4 have been busy this week researching our own topics to allow them to write their own non-fiction books. They have been researching, note taking and have begun to write their first few pages of their books. Great work P4!
The Health and Wellbeing and Enterprise Committees joined forces for this committee session in order to try and raise LOTS of money for our school funds. The children participated in a sponsored fitness afternoon which was full of fun but VERY hard work! All donations/sponsor money should be sent to school by Friday 15th March. Both committees would like to thank you in advance for any donations given, they are truly appreciated!
Our Bookbug Gifting Ceremonies were a great success. The joy of the moment is clear to see on the faces of all. Thank you to everyone who came to join us, special times indeed! Thank you also to Mrs McMaster, you were a pleasure to watch. @scottishbooktrust @FMReadChallenge
The first transition visit was a great success, the children enthusiastically participated in all the activities and worked really well with their buddies. The buddies loved it and think our future P1s are just fab!
Primary 3 did indeed perform their socks off, they were sensational! They entertained and informed their audience about the UNCRC and hopefully all who came will know more about the rights of the child and our place, as adults to ensure they enjoy them! Thank you, we loved having you with us today. Happy Thinking Day too all.
Primary 4 enjoyed their visit from Summerlee Heritage Centre on Friday when we got the chance to learn about the weaving process. This was quite a tricky process but we all managed to weave our own piece of material and we can’t wait to show these off at the parent open afternoon!
A letter was sent to primary 2 today from Katie Morag all the way from the Isle of Struay!
Mrs McCormack sent Katie a letter to see if she would help the boys and girls to learn about living on an island in Scotland. Katie sent a letter back to say yes and that she would like to learn about living on the mainland in Cumbernauld. She sent us her teddy Tiresome Ted for us to take home each night with postcards to write to Katie.
A note for Parents- If your child has Ted home they do not need to complete homework assigned for that night. Your child can write on a blank postcard provided to tell Katie about Ted’s sleepover and/or about living in Cumbernauld (see example). Thank you for your continued support. Mrs McCormack
