Pupils have learned a number of traditional Scottish dances. They can put sequences of steps together to perform these dances and were encouraged to find fun in the experiences.
Whooping and clapping was essential!!

The pupils said:
The food colouring tasted disgusting.
This investigation was quicker and easier than last week.
I thought the bumps were single taste buds but now I know they are groups of taste buds.
I learned new words while investigating taste.
You had to be careful with the food colouring.
We needed to be hygienic all the time.
Tongues have more to them than I thought.
The Primary 7s joined other small schools at Minishant Primary yesterday to take part in a Drama Workshop. They all had great fun experimenting with different ways to use their voices to engage and inspire their younger reading buddies. They are good to go with the Book Trust shared reading project now. Well done P.7s.
In this week’s assembly we celebrated the achievements of Elliott, Anna and Harvey.
Elliott was Mrs Holland’s handwriting star. Anna was last week’s Dojo Champ and Harvey was awarded for consistently having superb homework. Well done and keep up the good work.
We celebrated a wide variety of successes in this week’s assembly.
Kyle received an achievement award for his artwork. Stephen got a certificate for super spelling last week and Matthew was rewarded for his excellent effort in preparing for our Christmas show. Well done boys.
And the girls were also in fire this week with Cara winning an award for superb homework. Lucy topped the class with practically perfect punctuation and Nikkita was given an achievement award for all her effort and enthusiasm in class. Great job girls.
Well done to those whose achievements were recognised at this weeks assembly.
Tegwen got a double whammy for her netball skills and for moving up a level in figure skating. Well done.
Cara was Dojo champ in the Big Class and Martha played her first game with Ayr United at the weekend and they won 12-0!!
The big class loved their visit from Steven Brown. Their interview skills were wonderful and they set him a few challenges.
He took some of our paintings away to display in his office and left us all a lovely signed gift.
We have just had a lovely visit from local artist Steven Brown.
Steven answered all of our questions and told us all about his famous paintings.
