Today, the Primary 7 Health & Wellbeing group ran their first lunch time drop in session. They created a calming environment for children to have the opportunity to discuss their feelings. The group planned mindfulness activities such as jigsaws, mindfulness colouring and Lego building.
This drop-in session will run every Thursday lunch time for P1-4 children who require a little breathing space.
Sports Day is just around the corner on Wednesday 25th May 2022. The weather is currently looking promising, so please remember to wear sunscreen and bring water. Pupils are asked to wear sports clothing and their House Colours to help cheer on their team.
Parents and guardians are invited to attend the event which will be held on the school field. We will have a viewing area set out on the School Pitch. Access will be provided over the small wall in the infant playground. If you require disabled access, please get in touch with the school office to make arrangements. The race schedule is as follows:
School Field Races
Nursery, P1, P2, P3 and P7
P4, P5 and P6
Whole school House Races
If you would like to take your child out of school for lunch on the day, please adhere to the normal procedures of letting the school office know and by collecting them from the normal end of day pick up points. Please ensure the class teacher is aware of the lunchtime arrangements.
I hope you will be able to attend and continue to make the event one of the most memorable events in the school calendar.
All P1-7 pupils have been entered into the Renfrewshire Sumdog Contest. It starts at 8am on Friday 13th May and ends at 8pm on Thursday 19th May.
The questions are set at your own level. Each class must have 5 pupils playing to qualify. We had a very successful Renfrewshire Contest in March so lets see if we can beat our own record. Let’s do this!
As we plan our priorities for the coming session, it is important to us that we gather the views of our parents and carers.
Please take the time to complete the questionnaire below. Your responses will help up to shape our provision moving forward into, what we can only hope will be, a more settled year. Responses will close on the 27th May.
If there is anything not included in the questionnaire that you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to get in touch by phone or via the enquiries email address.
This afternoon P7 joined us to help us practice some of the skills we have been learning in P.E. It was just wonderful to see everyone having so much fun in the sun. The P1’s had a great time playing with their buddies and I am sure they were all very tired when they got home today. We are already looking forward to the next time we all get together. Here are some photos; hopefully I managed to catch everyone.
It was wonderful to have our second ‘live’ assembly on Wednesday We had lots to celebrate with so many pupils reaching Silver and Gold in their merit awards. We also enjoyed sharing our Class News, Wider Achievements, Stars of the Week and Birthdays.
Very well done to our Hawks House Captains for being such great hosts this week.

As you know, prior to the Easter break we took part in Sustrans inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting challenge, the Big Walk and Wheel ….. and what fun we had!
This year, for the first time, we are presenting the class who had the most active travel over the two weeks of our Big Walk and Pedal with the Mrs Ferguson Big Pedal award. Many of you will know that it was Mrs Ferguson who first introduced us to the Big Pedal a number of years ago. She is a huge cycling fan and always wanted to instil her enthusiasm in all of us. I am delighted to announce that P1S are the very first winners of this fabulous shield and we are very excited to share our class photo with you.
A huge well done to all of the classes at Bishopton Primary; we finished in 48th place out of the 2,440 schools who took part. What an amazing achievement! Go Bishopton!
