Contemporary German Artists With the Falcons

As part of our European Day of Languages, the Falcons have been learning all about Germany. This morning, they have been learning about two contemporary German artists.

P1-4 have been looking at the work of Astrid Stöeppel. Here are some examples of the work.

P5-7 have been learning about 1010. He is a German street artist who creates 3D illusions on concrete walls. Here are some examples of their work.



Lost Property Has Moved!!

Our lost property has moved to the foyer inside the main entrance of the school.  This should allow parents to quickly locate any missing items when they are visiting the school office.


Lost property is once again accumulating very quickly this term. Please make sure that all items that your child brings to school are clearly labelled with their name. This makes it easier to return the items to their owner. Many of our children have the same or very similar items and without names we have no way of determining who they actually belong to. Please check the names on clothing regularly as names do fade in the wash.

We have a number of jackets in lost property at the moment and pictures are included in this post. We are also still trying to track down a blazer and a red school waterproof jacket that are missing. Both these items are labelled with names and we would appreciate it if you would check just in case your child has put on the wrong jacket at the end of a day.

Due to the high volume of lost property we will be clearing out on a regular basis so please contact the school as soon as you discover an item is missing.

School Travel Champions

Your new school travel champions have been appointed from P6G and P6P! They are: Tayla, Cameron, John and Emma. We have conducted surveys in each class to determine how many of us walk or cycle to school. Coming up we will be having a poster competition to encourage walking/cycling to school (details to follow) and each month we will be conducting a walk to school event. We have some fun ideas to encourage everyone to walk to school and each month the best class will get an extra five minutes of playtime! We will keep you updated! img_1448

Digital Leaders

In assembly today, I told you all about the new team of P4-7 Digital Leaders I will be starting up at Bishopton over the next few weeks. The Digital Leaders will be trained to use different types of technology and will use their expertise to support the pupils and staff in our school community. Here is the short film you watched today:

If you are interested in becoming a Digital Leader, application forms are available in the ICT suite. These must be completed and returned to Miss Burnett by Friday 2nd September.

Interviews will take place at lunchtimes the following week.
