Active Schools Day

On Wednesday 2nd June Mhairi Lake the Active School’s Coordinator came to school for the day. It was so lovely to have a visitor to school after such a long time of no visitors.

Mhairi had organised a fun packed day and the pupils were able to take part in a variety of activities.

P1-3 had team building and athletics and a favourite game of theirs was Jungle Run.

P4-7 had Sports Leaders, playground games and basketball/netball.

Thank you to Mhairi for such a fun filled day.

P4-7 visit Fairy Gate Wood

The pupils pf P4-7 are enjoying their class novel “Wolf Brother” and have a good understanding of life in Mesolithic times. As part of the P4-7 topic “Wolf Brother’s Wildwoods” the pupils have divided into 4 clans. Clan Oak is Jorgie and Jack, Clan Apple is Carlos, Jacob and Carla, Clan Golden Willow is Kayleigh, Poppy and Sophie and Clan Cherry Blossom is Carmo, Rebecca and Ellie.

Each clan created a clan identity, a clan call and signal. They created items to be worn when they went on their first adventure to Fairy Gate Wood. Each clan also created twig people to take to the woods with them. Here they are hard at work preparing for their visit to the woods.

Tree Poems

P4-7 wrote some wonderful poems about trees this week. Mrs Nunes enjoyed displaying their work.

Topic Work

Both classes are thoroughly enjoying their topics this term and are producing some great work and taking part in many fun lessons.

P1-3 have been making working lighthouses.

P4-7 all contributed to this panel of Rock Art. Each pupil filled a frame with motifs and then joined them all together in this panel with fissures and cracks crossing each drawing.

P4-7 Cross Country

P4-7 have started cross country training in their PE sessions this term. The first few sessions took place in the school grounds but this week we moved to the football field for more of a challenge. All pupils did their best and showed great stamina.

We did our stretches on the outdoor gym equipment at the football field.

Term 4 gets off to a Good Start

All pupils returned to school after a lovely Spring Break. They are all excited to be back in school and are working hard.

P1-3 have started work on a topic around the book “The Lighthouse Keeper’s lunch”

P4-7 have started a topic called “Wolf Brother’s Wildwoods”.

As you can see they are enjoying the lessons so far!

Makaton Superstars

Mr Johnstone from the Youth Music Initiative asked P4-7 if they would be prepared to learn and video the Makaton version of the Beatles song “Here Comes the Sun” for him to use with his new classes next term. The pupils were delighted to be asked and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.Great job guys!

Community Kindness

Since our return to school we have received some lovely, generous gifts. The Gala Committee bought a fire pit for us to use in the school playground. We enjoyed an afternoon of making Smores- Yummy!!

Mr and Mrs G Bias of Utility Hut donated Easter eggs to the children.This was a lovely surprise and the pupils and staff will enjoy the treat over the holidays.

Abington Masonic Lodge donated a cheque for £200 to the school.The pupils were thrilled with this and have put forward lots of ideas of how they would like to spend the money.
