K’nex Challenge

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!!!

Outdoor Literacy and Baking for Maths

P1-3 have had an action packed day!

We went on a scavenger hunt following the clues which led us to letters.  We unscrambled the letters to find where Teddy has hiding and had a lovely picnic in the  morning sun.

For maths, we put our measuring skills to use. We used the scales to weigh out all the ingredients and baked some yummy cookies. We even cleaned up too!

This afternoon we played parachute games for P.E and made a PowerPoint of a Rainforest animal.

World Book Day

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!

JRSO Speed Watch

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.

Consolidating Our Learning with Purposeful Play

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!



Comic Relief-15th March

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.
