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.

Outdoor Classroom Day – Thursday 19th May

@playscotland #OutdoorClassroomDay
Next Thursday 19th May is Outdoor Classroom Day. We will be officially opening our Outdoor Classroom and then every class will be taking part in activities outdoors.
Pupils are still wearing a relaxed uniform, however as the weather is unpredictable we recommend a waterproof jacket and perhaps a change of footwear, in case the field is muddy.
We look forward to using our Outdoor Classroom and playground regardless of the weather.

P1 and P7 Fun in the Sun

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.

Our New Outdoor Classroom

We are all absolutely thrilled with our new outdoor classroom that was installed this week.

The classroom has a whiteboard and seating for pupils and along with  new outdoor learning resources, portable connection for some iPads,  gives us many options for taking the learning outdoors.

We are looking forward to making good use of it in the weeks ahead.

Thank you to Mrs Davidson who has been overseeing the project.

Congratulations P5- Literacy Planet Word Mania Winners

Congratulations to our Primary 5 pupils who placed first in the UK in the Literacy Planet Word Mania competition.

They worked so hard on this to gain and retain first place throughout the finals week.  We are very proud of your achievements.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the competition. Many of our classes placed high on the daily and weekly leader boards. Well done!

P5 have won a yearly subscription of Literacy Planet for the school worth £1800 and a £270 voucher to spend on school resources to support literacy.

Big Walk and Wheel

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel - Sustrans.org.uk

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!
