P3/4 Bug Walk

On Friday 13th Room 3 went out a Bug Walk with David Walsh from the charity Bug Life.

We used our school garden and the nearby Kingshill Nature reserve to explore, observe and ask questions.  We demonstrated our skills and knowledge and learned lots of new facts.

We encountered frogs, spiders, bees, snails, flies and lots more.

Back in class, we wrote thank you letters to David for taking us out and allowing us to have such a great experience, below are examples of our work.

An extra special thanks to Mrs Watson and Mrs Gray for accompanying us on our walk.


ISS Model

One of our very talented P.7 pupils designed and made his own model of the International Space Station. It was so good the class decided we should tweet Tim Peake personally and let him see this superb piece of work! 😀🌌

Fingers crossed he gets back to us! 👍


Easter Bonnet Parade

Well Done to all the Children in the Nursery and in Primary 1/2 for making such fantastic Easter Bonnets. I am sure all the mums and dads loved seeing them at our Easter service.

Here are some Pictures from Primary 1/2IMG_0915[1]

We will be putting more pictures from our Easter Bonnet Parade tomorrow.


Our Planets are out of this world!

Room 1 have been completing a block of learning on Topical Science.  We have been following Tim Peake and his mission on the International Space Station as well as learning about space.

We researched a specific planet in our Solar System and created fact files on them.  We then used paper mache to create a model of our solar system.  We tried to make our models’ size to scale in relation to each other.

Have a look at our completed display! It’s out of this world! 🙂

Sit down for Breakfast Stand up for Farmers

It is Fairtrade Fortnight and our Fair Trade Committee did some interesting research to find out what Fairtrade means. They went for a visit to the Local Co-op to find Fair Trade products. We realised that some of our favourite foods like bananas,chocolate and blueberries, can all be Fairtrade and that this means the farmers who have grown these will get a better price for their crop.

The whole school got together to sit down for breakfast and stand up for farmers. P3100139[1]

World Book Day

For World Book Day the whole school took part in shared reading. The Primary 6/7 children paired up with Primary 1/2 class and the Primary 3/4 paired up with Primary 4/5.

The children shared their favourite books with each other and enjoyed reading part of their books to children from the other classes.

I am telling my class mate about my book.





My book made me laugh as it was very funny.

























My favourite book is the Batman series. I really enjoyed the Primary reading the book. IMG_1475[1]

Our reader was using expression when she was reading. We both give her a thumbs up for super reading skills 🙂


















Our reader kept us engaged by asking us questions through out the book.



We hope you have enjoyed looking through our World Book Day pictures, maybe you could read a part of your favourite book in celebration of this day.
