On Monday 24th of March, pupils took part in a creative workshop and performance with The Barrow Band.
Accompanied by their performing barrow (full of singing fruit and veg!), the musical group sang songs about Carrots, Potatoes, Strawberries, Lettuce, Kiwi, Oranges, Mushrooms, Bananas and Broccoli. Each song was not only fun and catchy, but packed full of educational information, featuring lyrics about where the food came from, what countries it grows in, what vitamins and minerals they contain and how they help our bodies.

On Friday 21st of March, the whole school got together for the annual Ground Force Tidy Up of the school grounds to get things ready for Spring. Pupils were busy weeding, turning the soil, planting, sweeping up leaves, composting, readying the flowerbeds and identifying areas that need attention or where new trees could be planted.
On Thursday 6th of March, pupils from Abernyte Primary celebrated World Book Day by dressing as their favourite literary characters. The Wimpy Kid, Wally, Tintin, Wilbur the pig, Matilda and the cast of Frozen were amongst those represented.
Pupils gave talks about why they had chosen their character and read lots of books, including the £1 World Book Day books “Hello, Hugless Douglas!” and “Horrible Histories: Terrible Trenches”.

To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, the whole school got together to make pancakes! Pupils worked in co-operative groups to make their pancakes, working on skills such as good listening, following instructions, measuring weight and volume, working safely, being hygienic and the perfect pancake toss!
After choosing a topping and consuming their tasty treat, the P4-7’s surveyed pupils to discover the favourite toppings and the data was used to create bar graphs or pie charts of pupils’ preferences. Who knew Maths could be so scrumptious?!
