We have lots planned for Burns Day tomorrow.
We will be having our special Burns Day assembly first thing (for school children and staff only).
Artist Steven Brown will be here after break to talk to the whole school about his work as part of our Scottish theme and we have a special Burns Day lunch organised with haggis, neeps and tatties, square sausage on a roll and our usual sandwiches and baked potatoes.
Children can wear a bit of tartan with their school uniform too.
Check out this weeks’ movers and shakers from assembly today!
Our plaques have arrived and they look fabulous!
Emma is our “It’s Good To Be Me” pupil this week showing us her fabulous artwork!
Not forgetting our weekly Class Dojo winners and Responsible Citizens!
P1a were our Me Time class winners of the week. As this is not the first time P1a have won they have bagged themselves a Movie Afternoon!
Congratulations to everybody who received an award!
Our Scottish assembly will be held on 29th January when the children will be reciting Scottish poems and songs. It would be nice if the children could wear something tartan for the day. There will be no charge for this.
We will also be having a special Scottish themed lunch on Wednesday 27th January.
The menu will consist of: haggis or vegetarian haggis, neeps and tatties; scotch pie, beans and waffles and the usual choice of sandwiches and baked potatoes. Free school entitlement will be the same as normal.

Each week one lucky staff member has their name drawn out at assembly and we take time to recognise the many things that make them such a great part of our school!
This week it was Mrs McIntyre’s turn and she was delighted to read our comments and receive her certificate!
“She always smiles” “She is funny” “She has chats in the lunch hall”
“She is generous” “She is calm”
…and lots, lots more!!!!!!!
Well done Mrs McIntyre!
Today our pupils were encouraged to be positive about their own reflection and appreciate themselves as much more than what they or others see on the surface.
A few shared their thoughts…
” I see freckles!” – Holly– ” I am really good at gymnastics”
” I have a beautiful face” – Enya – ” I’m great at reading”
” I see my mouth” – Erin – ” I’m wonderful at dancing”
” I have loads of spots” – Zoe – ” I try my best at everything”
” I have nice eyes” – Alia – ” I am fantastic at acting”
Some of the children commented on how hard it can be to say nice things about yourself as there are so many things we can say to compliment others. It can feel that we are showing off or being self centred to say something positive but when we have a chance to think about it, it’s okay to remind yourself and others of what it means to be YOU!
BUT…just don’t say too much about yourself in case you stop recognising what makes others great!
P.A.Th.S time gives us a chance to hear about what makes us special!
Lots of achievements to celebrate at Assembly today!
Check out the unusual visitor who has been spending time in P4.
A group of P7 pupils told the boys and girls of our whole school some very interesting facts about Ebola and why it has been in the news!
