Well done everyone!
Every year, on the 22nd of February, the Girl Guides and Scouts celebrate World Thinking Day. Bishopton Primary School are once again delighted to support this. Any pupil who is a member of one of these organisations is welcome to wear their appropriate uniform on this day.
Thursday saw two very successful Scottish Poetry Assemblies. As always, our children did us proud with their confident and expressive recitals. The judges had a very difficult job deciding on the winners.
The P1-3 trophy went to Isla of P3W who recited The Skipping Sang by J K Annand.
The P4-5 winner was Layla with her performance of The Red Balloon by an anonymous author.
For P6-7 Mia gave an excellent performance of Robert Burns’ Wullie Whastle.
Very well done to all of our finalists and a special well done to the three winners.
The upper school were entertained by Eilidh, Evie, Chloe and Hollie from P7 dancing the Highland fling, as well as Kirsty, Eleanor and Ellie from P6. Rachel and Eilidh from P7 sang Loch Lomond beautifully and we mustn’t forget our ICT technicians Owen and Lewis for their expert help too.
This was a wonderful way to reflect and complete our Scottish month in school. Each year January is busy, with the classes looking at our heritage, our traditions, our culture and much more. They take part enthusiastically and with great enjoyment. Many thanks to the teachers for their hard work behind the scenes.
We must also extend warm thanks to Ms Grant and Mrs Joannides of the Parent Council for judging the infant performances and to Mr Bradford, Mr Wilson and Mr McNellis for their expert decisions with the upper school.

As you know we have been working very hard on our Scots and Burns poems. This year there is a slight change to our arrangements. We are having a P1-3 Assembly on Thursday 7th February where our winners will recite their poems to the infant department and a panel of judges from the Parent Council. Each of our winners will receive a certificate and the lucky winner from P1- 3 will be awarded a trophy to hold for a year.
The upper school will have a similar event with 3 judges from the Burns Federation. There will be 2 trophies, one for the overall winner from P4&5 and one from P6&7 and of course, certificates for all class winners. We will also be entertained with singing and dancing. We are very lucky to have such talented children.
The following Wednesday at school assemblies the infant winner will recite their winning poem to the upper school assembly and vice versa.
We would invite the children to wear something tartan on Thursday 7th, if they have it, to help us celebrate Burns Day. This could be a tie, a hairband, a blouse, a skirt, anything tartan. It is not a non-uniform day but if you have the full regalia we would love to see it!
We are all looking forward to the performances and pictures will be posted on the school blog next week.
Thank you once again for your support.
Congratulations to our Stars of The Week! 👍🌟
Congratulations to our Star Pupils! 💫 Here are your photos with your House Captains. 😃
Well done to all of our stars from last week! 😃💫
Well done everyone for another successful languages day. P 1-3 designed t-shirts about France and all things French. Well done to our t-shirts winners (photos to follow). P4 -7 made a presentation in the form of a poster or powerpoint on the advantages of knowing more than one language.
Thank you to our mum and dad speakers and Craig our ex-pupil for their input.
If your child was one of the t-shirt winners, these are the care instructions – iron fix on the back for at least 4 mins and wash separately in cold water for first 3 washes.
Here are some of the Eagles hard at work. More photos to follow.
Bonjour – Guten Tag – Hello
Just a reminder that Wednesday 26th September will be a non-uniform day as we will be celebrating European Day of Languages 2018.
Pupils are asked to wear house colours – Eagles- yellow, Hawk-green, Falcons-blue and Ospreys-red.
Children will be involved in a variety of activities with the rest of their house to celebrate all things French and to explore why it is useful to know more than one language.
We look forward to hearing from some specially invited speakers on their experiences with languages.
If you are interested in helping your child with their Modern Foreign language learning at home, you can follow this link – ideas for parents and families.
Merci – Danke – Thank you
It’s that time of year again! Our annual Christmas Art House Day is on Friday 1st December. Pupils will work together with their House peers from other stages to create a Christmas display.
Pupils are asked to wear their House colours but they will be using paint, glue, glitter and other art materials so they may get messy!Please do not wear your best clothes!
A reminder of the House colours:
Weather permitting, Sports Day will go ahead as planned tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd May. If we have to cancel due to weather conditions, we will inform you by text and Blog post in the morning.
Before lunchtime, all pupils will be taken back to class to register and collect their packed lunches, etc. If we have received the signed permission slip to allow them out of school during lunchtime, P4-7 pupils will be sent to the office to be collected. P1-3 pupils with permission slips will be able to be collected from the Dining Hall Fire Exit (at the greenhouse). Pupils who are not being collected by their parents will be escorted to the field by their teachers.
We hope you have a lovely picnic experience on the field. We ask that you encourage your child to stay away from any equipment that has been set up for the sports activities.
Remember to dress in your House colours to show some team spirit. Eagles – yellow, Hawks – green, Falcons – blue, Ospreys – red. Please wear or bring sun cream even if it looks cloudy, because we will be outside all day. Also, please wear a hoodie or waterproof jacket, just in case!
We had so many photographs from the Rookie Rockstars concerts we have had to make another blog post. Here are a few more photographs from our fabulous concerts held on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Enjoy!
The Rookie Rockstars concerts at Ingliston Country Club on Tuesday and Wednesday night were amazing! The pupils turned up dressed to impress and ready to rock! They put on two great shows, showing off their singing and dancing skills as well as what the songs had taught them about anti-bullying and self-esteem.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the events happen: Rookie Rockstars for their guidance and songs, Ingliston Country Club for allowing us to host the events for free, the audience (families and friends) for your support, the many school staff who came to supervise and rock out, the school secretaries who acted as a professional box office for a few weeks, the janitorial staff who acted as roadies for a few days and most importantly the pupils who rocked their socks off!
If you would still like to purchase a CD to listen to for many years to come, please visit the School Office.

Tonight, Ingliston Country Club will welcome the Eagles and Ospreys to perform the Rookie Rockstars concert in front of their family and friends. Here are a few reminders:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. We are really looking forward to seeing you at the performance tonight and cannot wait to see the pupils rocking out with Dave from Rookie Rockstars!

Congratulations to this week’s Stars of the Week.
As we ran out of time at the Quiz before the holidays, we all got together this morning to allow the poor Eagle House Captains to carry out the forfeit for losing the Quiz. They had to dip their faces into water then find an apple in a bowl of flour! Their faces say it all. Well done to Keeley and Corrie for being such good sports.
