Last Day of School – Friday 26th June

As you all know, we usually gather in the playground at 1pm on the last day of school to mark the closing of one school year by having the youngest and oldest pupil to ring the bell. Due to the current situation, this will not be possible but we would still like to mark this occasion.

We would love if you and your family could go into your garden or driveway and ring a bell, bang pots and pans, play an instrument, basically make some noise to show your school spirit! If you could record this and send it to  bishoptonenquiries@renfrewshire.gov.uk we will collate the videos and upload them to our YouTube channel during the holidays.

We look forward to hearing the distant sounds of that Bishy school spirit at 1pm on Friday 26th June!

Bishy’s Got Talent 2020

The time has come to reveal this year’s talent!
Please take some time this afternoon to watch the talent from P1 to P7 in our school. Every year we give you the opportunity to audition for the talent show and then show your talent to the whole school in a live performance. This year, it had to be a bit different but I think you’ll agree that the end result is of a very high standard. Thank you to everyone who auditioned and a huge well done to them too.
Enjoy!

Bishy’s Got Talent 2020 – Tomorrow Afternoon

Well, after lots of practising and filming from the pupils and some tough decision making from Mrs McNaught, Mrs Davidson, Mrs McLean, Mr McAvoy and myself, the time has come for the reveal of Bishy’s Got Talent 2020.

The hyperlink to the video will be published in your class Teams channel tomorrow afternoon. So get ready for a fun-filled video showing off talent that will blow your socks off!

If you sent an audition video to me, you will need to wait to see the video to see if you got through! Fingers crossed and well done!

Thank you,

Miss McDowall

Writing Competition –

We have so many talented writers in our school so why not write a story, poem, prose, article or anything you want about any British wildlife creature you fancy?  You could research your house bird (eagle, falcon, hawk or osprey) and let it inspire you! P4 pupils, you have been researching and learning about mini-beasts so use this knowledge to show off your writing skills. Or use one of the many topic tasks you have already written. Good luck!

Final Call for Talent Show Auditions!

A reminder that all talent show audition videos should be sent to me by Tuesday 26th May. Thank you!

Calling all dancers 🐧, singers 😮, magicians, musicians, comedians 🤣, gymnasts or pretty much anyone who has a talent who would like the chance to show it off! This year we will have to organise our talent show a little bit differently because we are all at home, however we still need to let your talent shine! ⭐

So here are the rules:

  • Film an audition video of your talent
  • You can be on your own, with a family member or if you can organise it, with friends from other families (still in Bishopton Primary)
  • The music should be appropriate (use the clean/radio edit)
  • You should be appropriately dressed (not too much flesh showing, leggings under/over leotards)
  • Your video should be no longer than 3 minutes (approximately)
  • You should email the video to Miss McDowall at gw07mcdowallkaren2@glow.sch.uk for the auditions to see if you will be put through to the final show.
  • The final will be a compilation of all of the talent made into one video and uploaded onto YouTube where only those with the link can view it.
  • You must have your audition videos to Miss McDowall by Tuesday 26th May

We are looking forward to seeing all of the talent you have to offer!
