We made the most of the good weather on Friday by experimenting outside with bubble making. It took great team work, and a lot of experimenting with strategies and ratios to create these HUGE bubbles. It was great fun stepping inside the bubbles too.
Our Primary Sevens were part of a joint team with Chapelgreen at this event yesterday.
The Team came second overall with the Banton pupils giving a strong performance. We brought home 3 firsts: boy’s 600m and both girl’s and boy’s long jump. A strong showing for such a small team. Well done all!
Today we went to the k’nex challenge at Kilsyth academy and we had to build a go cart and it had to have 4 wheels 1 seat 25 cm tall and 30cm wide or under. And you had to make it have a steering mechanism to turn. And there was 7 schools and we came 1ST!!! Then Ballmaloch was the runner up aka 2nd place. And I got sweets and 2 pencils and so did Fulton. But the other Banton team lost a mark because their cart was to wide. But they got 3rd!!!
It is World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. The pupils met at assembly and discussed what they would like to do. Primary 4-7 pupils then had the opportunity to create some flyers to advertise our school event.
We hope that all pupils will support World Book Day by coming to school in PJ’s or comfy clothes for the day so we can take time to enjoy reading together and share stories. Please see the flyers the pupils created for all the information you need!
Our JRSOs took some of the pupils out today to use the speed guns. We measured the speed of traffic coming into the village at the 30mph and then again when it goes to 20mph. We found that most drivers were going at around the speed limit, some above and some below. We hope that they can remember to slow down when coming into our village.
P1-3 would like to share some of our phoneme work with you. We have been revisiting some of our sounds and have had such a fun time doing so. We’ve been fishing for ‘sh’ words, making ‘s’ in the sand, enjoying a tea party with teddy, making igloos with ice and so much more!
This year the school will be fundraising for Comic Relief on Friday 15th March. More details on the actual day will follow but it will be a dress down day with pupils being asked to wear red. Other activities will be planned. In the meantime, our red noses have arrived in school and are for sale at £1.25 each. Pupils can buy red noses from the office while stocks last.
