On Thursday 1st March 2018 we will be celebrating World Book Day in School by encouraging all children to come to school dressed up as their favourite book character!
We will also spend this week completing different book related activities in class and holding whole school DEAR times! We’ve also asked the pupils to find and be photographed in the strangest place to read a book!
Today all of the Primary 6 children participated in a Debating Workshop run by Mr David Smith, the Education Officer from the Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum. The children were given lots of interesting tips on how to participate in a successful debate and then were able to put their newly acquired skills to the test in a short series of debates on a variety of topics.
Several groups of children then debated a variety of current topics, and answered some very challenging questions from their peers!
The children thoroughly enjoyed their experience and are looking forward to developing their debating skills further this term.
Following our excellent sessions at our lunch-time basketball club, we took part in the P5 Stirling Basketball Festival at ‘The Peak’.
Two teams were entered and they both did tremendously well; racking up many wins and developing their skills, teamwork and sportsmanship along the way.
This resulted in one of our teams emphatically winning the whole tournament!
Many thanks and well done to all of those involved, the squad members that weren’t selected for the tournament and to all of those who organised the event (Active Stirling). It was a great success in every way and another trophy for the cabinet!
