Walk to School Week 05.10.20

Next week is the national Walk to School Week.  We would like to encourage as many pupils as possible to walk to school next week. We are hopeful that this will be a BIG celebration and a whole lot of FUN!  To make the week special, we would love for our pupils to dress up each day.  The themes are as follows:

Day Walk to school wearing…
Monday silly socks or odd shoes!
Tuesday crazy hair!
Wednesday a hat and/or sunglasses!
Thursday bright colours!
Friday something purple for Ayrshire Hospice.

Walking to school helps children feel happier and healthier and they arrive refreshed, fit and ready to learn. More families walking means fewer cars on the road during the school run, helping to reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates.  If you live too far away or don’t have time to walk the whole way to school, you can ‘Park and Stride’.

If you would like to make a small monetary donation towards the Ayrshire Hospice on Friday, this would be gratefully received, although there is no obligation to do so.

Sports Day Fun!

Well done to you all for taking part in our first virtual Sports Day. There was a huge amount of creativity shown and lots of energy! Mrs Reid will be busy totalling up all the house points. Here are just some of your photos and videos.

Dance Competition Winners!

Well done to our P3 and P4 Dance Club. They achieved second place in the South Ayrshire Dance Competition. We would like to thank the Belmont Dance Leaders – Rachel and Sarah – for choreographing and leading the Dance Club. All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves – and half of the pupils had already performed a Nativity before this event too! Congratulations to all the boys and girls.

If any parents would like to help out and support at any of our existing clubs or start a club, please contact the school.

Whitletts Activity Centre Football Tournament Review

On the Wednesday 14th of December we went to a school football tournament at the Whitletts activity centre. We were quickly told about the rules and then we were told who we were playing first. We were on the bench first. The games were 7 minutes. We played Alloway first. It was a tough game but we managed to score one to seal the game. We had a quick drinks break then watched the Grammar vs Alloway game then we were quickly on against Forehill in our 2nd match. The game kicked off and we quickly grabbed a goal we were in complete domination in the match and grabbed a 2nd goal. The game ended 2-0 Holmston. Our 3rd and final match was against Grammar we were determined not to concede and we got what we wanted! We quickly came on and bagged a goal not long after we scored again then in the last minute of the match we scored and the whistle was blown for full time.

Overall we scored 6 goals as a team

Conceded 0 goals

And won all 3 games!!
