Last week the children from Primary 1 entertained the school and family and friends with their nativity ‘Busy, Busy Bethlehem’. The boys and girls have spent many weeks learning their parts and their songs and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
Primary six and seven enjoyed a performance called ‘The Journey’ by the Baldy Bane Theatre company this morning. The performance was ‘forum theatre’ which meant that the pupils were able to particiapte throughout the play and were invited to make certain decisions to determine the outcome of the scenes. The key messages of the play were all about road safety. The pupils shared a lot of great knowledge to ensure a safe outcome for all of the characters in the play.
This term pupils in P4n and P4s have been learning all about Fishing. They have been lucky enough to tour a pelagic fishing boat the ‘Antarctic ll’ and had a visit from Frankie’s Fish and Chip shop to help them understand the journey of fish from the sea to their plate and making them aware of the richness around our island.
With excellent support from Izzy Swanson the pupils brought their topic to life with a special play, which they performed to their parents/carers last week.
‘One from the Sea, Three from the Land’ was written especially for the class by Izzy Swanson and brings together stories of old folklore and dialect singing.
P3s entertained pupils in P1-3 today with their assembly on Light and Dark. They did an amazing job of sharing their learning with others. Their super audience were able to recognise many of the school values in their performance. Stating that they were like ‘Le
o the Learning Lion’, ‘Resilient Super Rabbit’, ‘Enjoyment George the Penguin’, ‘Kate the Confident Unicorn’ and ‘Robbie the Respectful Owl’.
This term Primary 6 have been learning all about Victorians, and we recently held our annual “Victorian Day”, where children are given the experience of what life was like for pupils during Queen Victoria’s reign. The pupils and staff were dressed appropriately and everyone contributed to a memorable day! We would like to express our huge thanks to Miss Swanson, who provided costumes for the day and visited both classes for a lesson in the afternoon.

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.
