Dyslexia Rap……Get busy with Dizzy

Our talented pupils have made a video of their Dyslexia Friendly School rap.  We are working towards our SILVER award.

Get busy, know the shizzy, with Dizzy in the hizzy…..

*So you’ve got dyslexia!

That don’t mean you can’t go far.

Don’t dare think that you are dumb.

Find ways to make learning fun.*


What does dyslexia mean?

Words and letters aren’t as they seem.

Sometimes numbers too,

Decide to play tricks on you.


What can you do about it?

Give up, fold your arms and just sit?

Annoy others and grab and hit?

Stress out ‘cause you feel you don’t fit?


That’s not the way to go.

You have the right to learn and grow.

Let your teachers, parents and friends know.

‘Please help let my smarts shoooowww’


Use the tools all around the class.

When asked a question don’t always pass.

Take your time and have a think.

Your brilliance is on the brink.


Wear glasses if you need.

Cool coloured overlays can help you read.

Talk about how you feel.

It happens, it’s fine, it’s real!


We hope you enjoyed our rap.

Now I’m ready for a nap.

If you need help remember to shout.

Someone will help you out.



Dizzy is our new DFS mascot and is a very resourceful octopus!




Media Club on Tasty Term Three

Hello folks, Media Master Class here!  We’re going to give you a wee run down of term 3 in Fisherton primary.  It has been another busy and exciting term for the pupils and staff in our school. 

The term kicked off with us learning Scots poems and getting ready for our bodacious, brilliant Burns Supper.   We have been improving our reading, talking and listening skills in Bookclub.  Our Bookclub is going to be sooooooooooo much more exciting and interesting now because we have some nifty, new books.   An amazing experience happened down at the harbour and we got taught what they do on a film set!

Information on these events and MUCH MORE can be read about in our P5, P6 and P7 newspapers.

Our learning theme was ‘In The News’ and we have learned loads about how news is reported, published, transmitted, produced and broadcast.  We have even been gathering Word Aware words  relating to the news, to help grow our vocabulary.  Check out how much our vocabulary has grown already! By summer out tree will be bursting with words. 


I liked doing the shapes in maths because we got to trace them and I liked the ‘I’m thinking of a shape’ game.  I learned what a polygon is.  I like listening to the Hobbit because we got to bring our own teddy or cushion to school which helps us get comfy.

I think working in our year groups was a highlight for me because in term 1 and term 2 we weren’t very good at co-operation and every 2 seconds it was an argument.  I think our skills have definitely improved this term which has made working in our groups much more fun and enjoyable.

I like doing bookclub because I’m in P4 and it means I get to work with the big class.  I enjoy the challenge because I think it is quite fun.

I have liked this term because of bookclub and our new books.  Spiderwick was a really good book!!  Jammin’ Andy was also fun and I liked the fitness activities.  

In term 4 we are looking forward to…

Our new head teacher, Mrs Holland coming back, Dolphin House, Maidens Tournament, P7 leavers….and much more!!

Watch this space for all our fun updates……Media club signing out!!

Read All About It!!!

It’s a hive of activity today in the P5-7 classroom….. or should I say newsroom!

The children are working very hard at putting together not one  …not  two  ….BUT   THREE  class newspapers!! 

Each year group have a deadline of Wednesday 22nd of March to get their magnificent media masterpieces finished.  Copies will be available when they are hot off the press during the last week of term.

Good luck teams!

Busy In Media Masterclass

We have been very busy in masterclass and have loads we want to share with you.

mmc1 mmc2

Here are some Tweets we came up with for our class twitter account.


Here is some other infomation we would like to share with you about our school!

In our lunch hall we have a food waste trolley. It has 4 different compartments they are –

  1. Food waste
  2. Cutlery
  3. Liquid
  4. Disposables

When we are finished with our plates we sit them on a shelf for the lunch lady to wash them for the next day.



We go on the trim – trail every time we go out for break time and lunch time. It was installed in 2014.


We are doing  ‘The News’ for our new topic. We have already got a few articles on the P5-7 wall.


The P5’s are learning decimals in Maths. I really enjoy doing it. I don’t know about the others.

We have just finished doing time for our maths. I found it okay.

P5-7 have started rugby every Tuesday with Aiden. Even though I was not there I will be doing it next week.

In PE with Mrs Connolly, the P1-7 are doing Badminton. We started on 18/01/17. It was extremely fun!

On 27/01/17, the school is having a ‘Burns Poem Competition’. The P7’s have ‘Willie Wastle’ by Robert Burns. We have practised since the start of Term 3.

Here is a document with all our Scots poems attched.
