What a great day!

Published by under Uncategorised

Thank you to all those who came along to our annual Christmas Fair on Saturday.  What a great turn out there was, Storm Desmond was never going to stand in our way!  The Fair is a major fundraiser for our school, but just as important is the way it brings together the whole community for such a special family event.  There were so many highlights, from the switching on of the tree lights to the hotly contested gingerbread competition, the wonderful food and drink, beautiful handmade wreaths and of course all of the lovely stalls for  extra special Christmas gifts.  Santa making an appearance was certainly the icing on the cake.   A huge thank you to Jane Brand, Lucy Calder, Niki Fallowfield and Mary Swan for all of their efforts -hugely appreciated by us all.

Keep Athelstaneford Skatepark Safe by Jonathan

Published by under Uncategorised

To keep our very own skatepark safe we would like you to look after it by not doing any vandalism or smoking and certainly put rubbish in the bin.

You should always wear a helmet or maybe even elbow or knee pads. Don’t try tricks that you can’t do because you could easily fall off and hurt yourself and and the other person.skate3

Don’t fling anything heavy like a skateboard, scooter or a BMX and lots more because it could crack the concrete or break your scooter or whatever you are using.

You are not allowed food or drink on the actual skatepark but you are allowed it on the grass off the side off the skatepark because we don’t want food stuck on the ground and always put your chewing gum in the bin iskate2nstead of spitting it out on the skatepark.

On Monday we celebrated St Andrew’s Day with our annual flag raising ceremony. As our oldest and youngest pupils, Sam and Ruby raised the new Saltire Flag, while Mackenzie piped for us.

We sang The Saltire Anthem and then invited our guests inside for some tea, shortbread and entertainment.  The Nursery sang Flower Of Scotland, P1-3 shared with us their Scots Alphabet and P4-7 sang Ma Maw’s a Millionaire and Everywhere We Go.

Wreath Making After School Club

Published by under Uncategorised

wreath pictureWe had another very lovely reminder this week about what makes our school such a special place.  Thank you to all those parents who very generously gave up their time and came armed with forests of goodies to help our kids make Christmas Wreaths after school.  It looks like, feels like and smells like Christmas!  The wreaths look like they have been delivered straight from a florist shop and will be on sale at the Christmas Fair on Saturday 5th December -we look forward to seeing you there.

Le Petit Dejeuner

We had a French Breakfast this morning in the 1\2\3 class.  It was soooooooooo fun!  This is what we had to eat – croissant, a pain au chocolat, apple and orange juice, bread with butter and jam and oranges.  We had to order our food in French.  To say “I would like” in French is “Je voudrais”  It was fab.

Unfortunately some people ate too much and felt like they might explode.

P4-7 Have been learning about our brains.

Published by under Uncategorised

027 028 031 030P-7 have been learning about the brain and the senses, how messages are sent to the brain and how neurons help to respond. We made our own brain caps out of papier mache to show our understanding of the brain. We also look after our brain by drinking plenty of water, eating healthily and challenging our brain.

051What a super morning.  Storm Abigail did not defeat us as we succeeded in our ramble up to Barnes Castle.  Thank you to all who accompanied us this morning and for the generous donations for Pudsey.  We are still to determine the final total but it certainly looks close to £200!  Well done everyone.

Music by Amy

Published by under Uncategorised

Primary 4,5,6 and 7 have been getting music lessons with Mrs McInroy on Friday after break time. McInroy also teaches primary 1,2,3. We go through to the spare class room and she teaches us through there.

If we are interested she teaches us recorder for half an hour before break. There are quite a few people who go to recorder. We are also learning St Andrews songs for St Andrews Day.

We are also learning the Ukelele and now the recorder.

We are also singing songs from different countries, from America, Africa, Brazil and from Scotland, about lots of different things.
