Scottish Celebration

On Friday 26 th. January the whole school came together for a Scottish  celebration afternoon.

Three winners from each class recited their Scottish poem in front of the whole school, Mums and Dads and grandparents. After these recitals, there was one winner from each class chosen by our judges, The Head Boy and Girl from Crieff High School.

While their decision was being made, the children sang Scottish songs, played Scottish music on violins and guitars. Parents were invited to make a small donation for shortbread and scones, made by the P7’s, for funds for their P7 trip later on in the year.

Congratulations to everyone who took part, our class winners and the overall winner of the Bobby Muir Cup!

A big thank you to our judges, Mrs Chalamanda and everyone who attended.

Book Week Scotland

We have been involved in a range of activities this week for Book Week.

P6/7 have been busy asking staff about their favourite books when they were younger. They also joined up with P3/4/5 to watch the author Phil Earle in Author’s Live. P1/2 watched the author Kes Gray talk about the P2 book Quick Quack Quentin.

The children also had parents, grandparents and ex parents of the school reading to the children.

On Thursday the children could bring books along to read at a Book Lunch and today P3/4/5 read stories to Nursery and P1/2.

Thank you to everyone who came to the school and read to the children. Thank you to everyone for supporting this week by supplying books for the children to read at the Book Lunch and the pictures for the baby competitions, which were very enjoyable!

 

 

John King Visit

Today we had a visit from John King, Tim Peake’s Father-in-Law.

He told us all about how Tim became an astronaut and his mission to the International Space Station. The children were then allowed to ask questions and there were lots of interesting ones asked.

Mr King also gave to us some momentoes including a signed picture of Tim Peake.

Thank you very much Mr King and to Miss Perry who arranged the visit.
