Christmas Service

P4 were fantastic at leading today’s Christmas Service at the Auld Kirk in Ayr. The service was a joint service with Southcraig School. The pupils re-told the Nativity story and we all sang a range of Christmas songs. Our P4s also learned to sign ‘Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer’ so they could join in with the Southcraig Choir. Christmas is definitely here now!

Winter Wonderland 2017

Our Winter Wonderland has been a highlight of December. All the pupils were involved in planning and organising this event. The focus was on developing creativity skills including: asking good questions; researching information; listening to others; thinking differently about ideas: inventing; solving problems; persistence and co-operation. All the classes visited the event and tried out all the games and experiences. They also had the opportunity of purchasing Christmas ornaments that had been designed and made from re-cycled items.


P1 – P3 Nativity and Winter Wonderland

It certainly feels like Christmas now that the P1 – P3 Nativity has been staged. All of the pupils enjoyed performing ‘A Midwife Crisis’ to parents and families today and yesterday. They sang and acted with great confidence – it was an absolute pleasure to watch.

At the shows, Primary 6  sold Christmas ornaments that had been made by pupils. The decorations were made from recycled materials and will also be sold next week during our ‘Winter Wonderland’ – an event organised by the pupils as part of their work on developing creativity skills. Excess stock will be sold to parents on Wednesday 20th December in the Infant Playground.

Belmont Transition Christmas Disco Review

On the 14th of December pupils from Holmston Primary School went to the Belmont transition disco for all of the P7 pupils in the Belmont Cluster. It was for us to meet new people so moving on to High School isn’t as tough. It was a fun night with lots of Scottish Dancing. We did dances such as Gay Gordon’s, Canadian Barn Dance, Dashing White Sergeant, Military Two Step and many more. During half time we all got a complimentary ice lolly there was also a tuck shop. After half time we started more Scottish dances we even did some of them to Christmas songs which were much quicker. Once we had finished the Scottish dances we danced to YMCA, Macarena and had the Conga – Boys versus Girls. The Boys Won! We played the Corner Game. After that it was time to leave. All round it was a fun night.
