100 days!

The Primary 1 classes celebrated their 100th day in school this week.  They got together and took part in some great activities including making 100 Day crowns, doing 100 exercises and painting 100 dots.  Most importantly, they reflected on all the things they have learnt and achieved in school so far and felt justifiably proud.  We are very proud of them too.IMG_0731[1]IMG_0727[1]

And they’re off!

You might have heard about the initiative ‘Mile a Day’, that has started in some schools around Scotland.

During school each day, children go out with their classes to walk, run, jog or skip a mile. Schools involved have seen fantastic benefits: improved fitness, behaviour and concentration.

We thought it sounded like an excellent idea! This week Primary 7 measured out two different tracks and got active. Primary 2 and 3b have also been using our track, with the rest of the school to follow after our February break, staff included!

Primary 7 have enjoyed their first full week of this, and have set targets for themselves. They also enjoyed buddy time, when helping Primary 2 on their first day, also joined by 3b.

Christmas Choir

It might be the first few days of the new year, but some of us are still trying to hold on to those last few memories of Christmas and all that it brings!

Again, a huge well done to all he children involved. Looking forward to lots of exciting choir fun in 2016!

 

P3 Pizza Party!

IMG_0662Primary 3 celebrated in style today after meeting their class target of 20 magic balls.  The class has worked very hard over the year to collect the magic balls, receiving them for things like walking around the school quietly, helping each other and sitting well in Assembly.  We celebrated by going along to Frankie and Benny’s where we got to make our own pizzas…and then eat them!
