It was wonderful to see some of the P5 pupils and their parents/carers and family members at the Chinese Family Night last night.
Three workshops were provided to give everyone the opportunity to try mask painting, calligraphy and using chopsticks.
Everyone was then entertained with a martial arts display, some Mandarin songs and a traditional Chinese dance. It was lovely to see how much the children have learned from their Mandarin lessons and how much enjoyment they have had.
Special thanks to Mrs Ying Zhang who has worked with the pupils in P5, P6 and P7. She is returning to China in July and we wish her all the very best.
Both P7 classes have spent a morning up at the AHS this week. They all participated in cooperative learning activities with pupils from other Primary schools and they were supported by Secondary 2 AHS pupils. They had the chance to explore the building, meet new people and try out the lunches at the AHS. We have had super feedback from the pupils.
Pupils in P2 entertained parents/carers and family members this afternoon with their performance of ‘There’s a sunflower in my supper’.
Their colourful, well rehearsed, fun and engaging performance was enjoyed by all. Through it they evidenced how hard they had worked, the knowledge they had gained and their many skills and abilities. They were certainly successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. They should all be really proud of themselves.
- This afternoon the P4 pupils were engrossed in their learning when I popped in. Every pupil was engaged in an activity to help them learn more about money. They were enjoying moving around all the different activities.
Just to confirm that Sports Day will go ahead today. The forecast is for it to dry up.
P4-7 sports will start at 1000
P1-3 sports are due to start at 1345
This term P2n have been learning all about growing things. Today they shared their learning with P1-4 at assembly. They were certainly confident individuals as they all spoke clearly to their peers.
We were all able to see and hear how much they have enjoyed their learning this term. We saw their skills in listening and talking, reading, writing, singing, drawing, creating, singing and presenting. They have carried out experiments and enjoyed being scientists.
Watch for yourself:
What a super day our P5 and P6 pupils have had working with Scottish Opera. They worked very hard from 1000 this morning in order to perform a super production to their peers and family.
We managed to film their hard work and the link to this clip can be found below:
As part of our sea themed activities we went for a trip on the Bressay Ferry on Thursday. The usual ferry is away for a refit just now so we got to go on the Fivla.
The steps down to the passenger lounge was very steep and it was very noisy. Some of the children thought the visor looked like a shark’s mouth!
We had a lovely time!
On Friday, we had some Fish and Chips for our lunch. This was kindly donated by the Fort Chippy and was enjoyed by all. A massive thank you to them.
We are on the road home. We’ve had a lovely treat at Dobbies Cafe in Dundee. Fancies and bacon rolls were enjoyed by all. Thanks to the Parent Council for paying for this treat and others during our trip.
