Primary 5JW attended Stirling High School for an Athletics festival organised by Active Stirling. Events included relay, obstacle relay, under/over relay, javelin throw, speed bounce, vertical bounce and chest pass. All children showed great teamwork and everyone put in maximum effort. Primary 5JW very deservedly won third place! A successful morning!
Borestone Primary 7s picked up a 3rd place team certificate at the Fun and Athletics Festival at Stirling High on Friday morning.
The whole class competed in various track and field events throughout the festival and encouraged each other in everything they did. Great team spirit and perseverance were displayed during the morning and every pupil should be proud of their achievements.
This was a fantastic event and gave some pupils the opportunity to try something new and others the chance to show off their athletic abilities in a competitive environment. Well done primary 7!
Borestone primary netball squad was in great form on Friday night when they participated in in the Fun 5z Netball Festival at the Allan Centre, Bridge of Allan. Mrs McFarlane, Mr Henderson and Mrs Wyper proudly watched our two teams, the ‘Borestone Bears’ and the ‘Borestone Bulls’, as they took on great opposition from other schools from Stirling.
The pupils showed great effort, team spirit and sportsmanship in every match.
Primary 5JW enjoyed some practical maths activities around STEM as part of Maths Week Scotland. Everyone enjoyed working on challenges as a team and are keen to try more!
Primary 5JW enjoyed a great first few days back at school this week. We refreshed our knowledge of the UNCRC and every pupil contributed to our class charter which is now up in our classroom for us all to follow! We started one of our new Numeracy topics – Place Value. We consolidated our knowledge through active math games and some pupils even challenged themselves to make numbers to millions!
We went swimming as a class at the Peak on Friday. Everyone tried their best in the pool and Mrs Wilson couldn’t be prouder of the effort from all. P5JW will visit the Peak for swimming lessons every Tuesday and Friday until November 9th. We will also have PE on a Monday and enjoy some Daily Mile when we can!
We look forward to a great term!
Today, Borestone’s P5-7 football team competed in the first ever Primary Schools Summer 7 a-side competition at Forthbank Stadium … and they won!
They played a total of 6 matches and were unbeaten throughout the day, qualifying for the final against a strong Bridge of Allan team. Borestone won a close final 2-1 to win the competition. Parents and staff were incredibly proud of the teamwork, leadership, perseverance and fair play on display from all of the pupils.
Well done Borestone. What an amazing day!
This session we have been learning to use different ICT applications which can help our learning. We thought it would be a good idea to share some of our recommendations.

We hope you are able to give some of them a go.
This year the P1-P3 digitars have been improving their digital skills. Three children from P4 have been sharing their expertise in Scratch Jnr and Book Creator. Here are pictures of some of our projects.
Scratch Jnr let us practise our coding skills and it was fun to see how the sprites moved. Sometimes it didn’t work first time so there was lots of checking or troubleshooting.
Book Creator let us share some of our learning in class. P4 showed us how to add a title, add speech and thought bubbles and even record an audio file. Then we saw how to add a picture from the internet.
P3 also demonstrated their coding skills using Lego Bits and Bricks. It was coding but different from Scratch.
Last week, the school had a visit from successful football player, Lisa Swanson. Lisa has had a great career and took the time to share her experience with every class in the school. She ran a fitness circuit for each class to show the kind of exercise she does on a daily basis.
After each class completed their circuits, Lisa talked to the pupils about her career progression and her training routines, including how she trains and how often she trains. She also stressed the importance of perseverance, cooperation, team work, hard work and a good healthy diet in helping her to succeed.
Well done to all the classes for completing your fitness circuit and asking Lisa great questions.
Lisa is pictured below with our Sports Committee who helped massively on the day to keep the morning organised and fun.
We hope to see some future stars from Borestone acting on Lisa’s advice and reaching the highest level they can achieve.
On Friday 22nd March, Borestone P6/7 netball team competed in the Stirling Primary Schools Netball 5z festival.
With limited preparation, they still managed to gel as a team and win all of their matches against some strong opposition.
The pupils used effective communication skills, perseverance and hard work in every match, as well as displaying fairness and respect to other teams.
The pupils were proud of their performance and we are very proud of the way they represented Borestone Primary School.
Well done, guys!
