The children enjoyed a very interesting visit from Mrs Zokas today as part of our People Who Help Us topic. She told the children a little about the organisation ‘Maggie’s’ which she works for and all about the wonderful fundraising work she does for them. The children got to experience giving money to charity in the collection tub and had to guess how many sweeties were in the jar. The winner got to take the jar home! We had a great afternoon! Thank you Mrs Zokas 🙂
This month our ‘Right of the Month’ is Article 29 (Please see picture below).

Please dress down in bright, happy BUT comfortable colours!
Keeping Scotland 🏴 Beautiful – Marine Art Litter Competition.
👍🏻Well done to our Eco & Outdoor Learning team for producing this fantastic piece of artwork to raise awareness about the detrimental effects of plastic in our sea to marine life.
HUGE thank you also to our janitor Mrs McGown for all her help in getting our design ready for our competition deadline. ⭐️ 👏🏻
Today Primary 3 brought in a push or a pull toy from home to sort. We realised that lots of our toys use push and pull forces to move in different directions or a different way. We had great discussion sorting some pictures of everyday tasks into whether they are a push or a pull. Some of us still argued that they could be both! We couldn’t prove them wrong. Great discussion and thinking Primary 3!
P5 have been working hard at home preparing their Solo Talks on Robert Owen. The children have been presenting their work this week and we have been learning all about this interesting man in time for our class trip to New Lanark next week! Great work everyone!
P5 enjoyed a rugby taster session delivered by coaches from Uddingston Rugby Club. They learned new skills and had a lot of fun at the same time!
Today we invited Mrs McGown to come to our class and tell us all about her job and how she helps people. She has been a janitor in our school for 19 years and the children couldn’t believe all the things that she does every day to keep everyone safe and happy. The school would not be the same without her and the children are very lucky to have someone so hardworking and caring in their school.
In Primary 6 we created a ‘character from the boots up’. Each group chose a number and inside their bag was a pair of shoes. The task for each pair or trio was to decide who might own these shoes and create a mind map describing the characters: appearance, personality, fears…. After playtime each child drew their character and wrote a story using this as the main character.
The theme of World Book Day was to share a story so I set a challenge to my Primary 6 class.
In trios choose a short story to read to a group of Primary 2 pupils. After listening to 3 stories each the P2’s voted who read them the best story.
The Primary 6 pupils took this challenge very seriously and it was fabulous listening in on their storytelling 📚 and questioning skills. Also thank you to the Primary 2 class It was great fun that morning and you were all stars ⭐️ 🌟 ⭐️ with excellent listening skills.
