On Friday at Assembly the pupils from Primary 4s shared their learning with the pupils from Primary 4-7. They did an excellent presentation about Living Things sharing all the facts they had learned. They involved the audience too!
They finished the Assembly with a wonderful song sung entirely in French! It was lovely to see them all enjoying their learning and having the confidence to share it with their peers!

In Primary 2s they have been looking at different parts of a plant as part of their Growth Topic. The children had to figure out what part of the plant they were looking at and then they prepared the vegetables and fruit and had a salad bar where they got to choose what they would like to eat.
They will be writing up their salad recipes next week.
This morning Primary 1s delivered a very interesting and engaging assembly to P1-3. They told an interactive story about Noah’s ark and sang to all the children.
The feedback from their audience was that it was very good and awesome because the story was good, they spoke in nice clear voices, they did some actions and sang to them.
Today the Primary 5, 6 and 7 classes were lucky to get to visit The Magpie Big Top to take part in circus workshops. It was a beautiful day for the classes to walk to the playing park and learn new skills with the performers who are visiting Shetland.
The pupils all had a fantastic time. Ellis and Callum from P5S said it was their first time at a circus and they had really enjoyed using the flower sticks to try out tricks.
Alfie from P5s had found it very satisfying when he had been able to master a skill using the sticks.
The photos below show how much fun the children had!
We have added a new page to the parent’s section of our school website to support learning at home.
This page titled ‘Learning at Home’ will provide parents/carers with fun ideas and suggestions to support their children and enhance their learning experience.
A lot of parents/carers are doing these things already but might enjoy looking through some of the ideas.
You may recall that back in December Bell’s Brae was successful in securing £12,000 from Tesco through their Bags for Life initiative. The majority of our grant will go towards building a shelter in the patio area with the remainder being used for other playground improvements.
The shelter is due to be erected this year and plans are being finalised at the moment.
Please find below a draft plan of what we hope the finished shelter will look like. It will provide a great area for the children to play at breaktimes and will also provide an outdoor classroom for all classes to use.
On Friday the P7s class entertained pupils from P4-7 with their climate change assembly.
This was presented in a fun and interesting way with the pupils deciding themselves how to present key information.
They shared interesting facts in the form of a ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ quiz and made suggestions for how the audience can make a difference.
All of the spoke with confidence and in nice clear voices.
The dancing at the end was not to be missed 🙂
Primary 4 pupils visited me today to share some of their super poems. They had been listening to “A few of my favourite things!” from the Sound of Music for inspiration.
They then wrote their own version thinking about their very own favourite things.
Riley felt he had found this easy to do and he’d enjoyed it.
Katie said, “It was easy to think of my favourite things but trickier to put that into words that would fit in the poem.”
Keira and Anya had both enjoyed listening to the song and had created super poems. The girls told me how when anyone was finding it tricky then they had helped one another and shared ideas.
The pupils had clearly loved creating and sharing their poems and they were buzzing with excitement to tell me all about it and to share their fantastic poems – which I really enjoyed! Mrs Wadley heard the excitement in my office and popped in to read them too. She was really impressed with their work! Mrs Simpson
