Primary 4 and Primary 5 teamed up to host a bake sale to raise money for Comic Relief. Both classes worked really hard and there were some amazing treats on offer to buy. Together we mananged to raise £138.53 to add to our whole school fundraising total for Comic Relief!
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.
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.
A huge thank you to all the families who were able to join us today for a Christmas activity afternoon.
We started off by treating our grown ups to some of our favourite festive tunes.
Thank you all for an excellent 2015, Primary 2 and families! Wishing you all a very happy holiday when it comes.
P1/2 were so glad that the bottom playground had reopened that they just had to go and try it out. They had a great time on the trim trail and playing with bubbles in the sunshine. They also took Ms Sherazee with them, she is a PGDE student from Strathclyde University who is working with them for the next few weeks.
