Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day

Mrs Smith our P.E. teacher has been talking to the class about her little niece who has Down’s Syndrome and telling us all about her qualities and what it means to have Down’s Syndrome.  To help raise awareness, Mrs Smith asked staff and pupils if they would help celebrate the day by wearing odd socks!  P1/2 took up the challenge!  Here is a photo of their wonderful array of multi-coloured and mismatched socks!


What a super day!  Beautiful day for our procession and galley burning, happy and enthusiastic bairns, a great school squad ably led by Michaela and a super SMUHA  Jarl Squad.  Not too many photos to share…we just soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed the day!!


World Book Day

We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day today and were delighted that Mrs Fiona Henderson could be with us to celebrate too!  Our day started in the Library where we got to change our books.  Then we looked at all the tatties, fruits and stones that pupils decorated as their favourite story characters.  The winners are yet to be announced!  We had a special Assembly where we did a quiz and were handed out our £1 book tokens.  Mrs Henderson read us a story but didn’t tell us the title or show us the cover.  We went back to class to draw and write down our own ideas.  We all enjoyed celebrating the joy of reading!
