Global Citizenship week

Primary 5 had a special visitor to the class this week. His name is Ravinder and he has been teaching us all about the Sikh religion. We have been looking at the map to find out where India is because that is where Ravinder comes from. We have been designing Indian flags and making passports and biographies for Ravinder. We have also been learning about a special celebration called Baisakhi and finding out how and why it is celebrated!

British Heart Foundation Ultimate Dodgeball


Following our Ultimate Dodgeball tournament during Health Week, we are delighted to announce that we raised an amazing £472.36 for the British Heart Foundation. Many thanks to all of you who brought in the sponsorship money. Not only did the children all have great fun playing Ultimate Dodgeball but we raised a tremendous amount for a great cause. Thank-you.


Today Primary 6 transformed into The CSI Team to help the boys and girls of Cochrane Castle  solve the case of The Cochrane Castle Criminal…

This morning the whole school was called to assembly to hear the breaking news that the beloved Poppy had disappeared and was being held ransom by one of our 5 suspects! Our 5 suspects were; Mr Paton, Mrs Patterson, The Jannies, Mrs McLeod and Mrs Wilson. Have a look at the video for a clip of the Cochrane Castle News.

The whole school had to work together, along with the CSI team, to carry out experiments in a bid to catch the criminal. Some of our experiments were; teeth impressions, finger printing and chromatography. We had great fun carrying out the experiments and then looking at the evidence left at the scene of the crime.

This afternoon we had a very special visit from Johnstone Police to help bring the guilty suspect to justice. Thanks to all the hard work of the CSI team and everybody at Cochrane Castle we managed to catch the criminal… THE JANNIES!!!!!! Since everybody here is so forgiving, and it was a first time offence, we decided to forgive our lovely Jannies!

We all had great fun at CSI Day and we hope you enjoy reading all about it.
