Primary 1n have been reading the story of the Little Red Hen. We made our own bread like in the story. We enjoyed kneading the dough and making our own rolls. We liked eating them even more! 🙂
Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.
We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.
Most importantly they tasted delicious.
Each term, Primary 7N and Primary 7S are mixed into cooperative learning groups to carry out research projects. This term, we started off with some team building activities to get to know each other a little better. Groups were tasked with building a tall, stable, strong tower using only masking tape and newspapers. Here are some pictures of the building in action!
Signalong classes started at Bell’s Brae this week with Mrs Fox. Everyone enjoyed this family learning opportunity with staff from other schools too.
The report of the inspection of the Early Years Department, carried out by the Care Inspectorate has been finalised. The department has received a grading of ‘Very Good’ in both areas assessed.
The report is a fantastic result for the children, parents and staff here at Bell’s Brae who have all contributed to this great achievement!

Just before the October holidays, P6n undertook the “mannequin challenge”… It required a lot of concentration!
This week pupils in P4-7 have shown great stamina, competitiveness, enjoyment and super team working skills during their participation at this year’s swimming galas.
We were fortunate to secure sponsorship once again from G4S and held two exciting mornings at the pool. This term each class has received a six week block of swimming lessons and what better way to show off their progress and talents than to take part in the galas?
The P6/7 gala was extremely close and was won by house team ‘Olaf’ who beat ‘Magnus’ by only three points.
The P4/5 gala was also won by ‘Olaf’.
Thanks to Mrs Wood for organising the event and to parents/carers and family members for coming along to support the children.
