New playground shelter

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.

P7s assembly

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 🙂

P4s Poetry Writing

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


Trip To Burradale

Today we went to Burradale and saw some windmills. I found some of the facts interesting it was really good fun!

I learnt the ladder inside the turbine was 45metres high and it was so tall you needed a harness to get up there but unfortunately we couldn’t go up!awwww!

There was 5 turbines and Mrs Moore, Mrs Byrll, Mrs Stuart and Miss Anderson came to help!  We also played games on the Bus!
