Festive Fun!

As always, this time of year is very busy. Last week, our P7s enjoyed their Christmas Party with all the P7 classes from across the cluster at Belmont.

Our P1, 2 and 3 Nativity, ‘Prickly Hay’ was thoroughly enjoyed by parents and families and the pupils enjoyed themselves too!

Meanwhile, members of P5 and P6 went to Bellevue Nursing Home to perform a selection of songs for the residents.







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.

Maths Challenge – Elf Suits!

elf2Mrs Claus made four of the workshop elves new suits for Christmas.

Each suit had matching trousers, waistcoat, jacket and hat.

One suit was all red, one was all green, one was all yellow and one was all blue. The elves were delighted with their presents, but decided it would be fun to wear a different outfit every day for as many days as possible. So they agreed to swap around parts of their suits until they ran out of new combinations.

How many days did their fun last?
