Halloween Firepit

We had a rather unusual Halloween morning today. All the classes went out to the playground and toasted marshmallows around the fire.

The Biggies started it off then the younger classes came out for their turn. The primary sevens did a brilliant job of explaining and demonstrating out fire safety rules to the younger classes.

Football Festival

Pupils from Primary 6 & 7 joined up with pupils from Chapelgreen Primary to enter into a cluster football festival on 21 October.  This was our first venture as partnership schools and it was a very positive experience for all.  A number of people commented on how well the pupils from both schools had performed as a team and showed appreciation for the talents within their team as well as the talent within the other teams.   Here are some photos from the event.

Pond Dipping at Banton Loch

Primaries 2, 3, & 4 went pond dipping to Banton Loch, led by Mr Carter from the Scottish Wildlife Watch.  Despite the rain, pupils donned waterproofs and wellies to embark on their long walk to the loch.  They discovered a variety of pond life which they shared when they returned to school.  Thank you Mr Carter.
