Happy Easter!

What a lovely last day of term.  In the morning we finished off any work that needed to be done and enjoyed task time.  We worked hard in Music and enjoyed using the boom whackers to make music.  The afternoon saw us hunting for our Easter baskets…much excitement!!!  😄 Then we listened to music and watched a superb drama sketch at our Spring Concert.  Well done to Leah for her sweet harp playing!

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!

SMUHA Day

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!
