Our Athletes Healthy Tuck Shop at Nursery

Published by under 2013/14

At Nursery we have been learning about the Commonwealth Games and in our house corner we have tuned it into a healthy tuck shop for the athletes. We invited the P3/4 class to come and try it out this morning. Some of us were very busy making posters and a price list. Some of us were busy making the menu which included cheese straws, strawberry and banana milkshakes to sell to the P3/4. We all took turns to serve the P3/4 taking their money and selling the cheese straws and milkshakes.

Another Commonwealth Games challenge from Clyde!

Published by under 2013/14

For this challenge the Nursery joined all our teams to work together. We were to choose a sport and create a poster drawing pictures or using photos or images of the sport. Also we could write down information or rules of the sport. Sports that were chosen were Cycling – Mrs Lord’s group, Gymnastics – Ms Haines’s group, Swimming – Miss Hutchison’s group and Athletics – Miss McKinnon’s group. We all had good fun in this challenge taking part and helping each other.

Commonwealth Games come to Athelstaneford

Published by under 2013/14

Today we were so excited when Microfitness visited our school so that we could all experience life as a professional athlete using special training equipment. Our school hall was completely transformed into a gym with treadmills and rowing machines and a inflatable basketball shoot out – so exciting! We also had a presentation where we learnt about the specialised training many of the athletes taking part in the Commonwealth Games 2014 will have to endure. Afterwords we had an Awards ceremony where some of us got a medal! A very busy and informative morning indeed – have a look at our photos below :-)

P3/4 held their first debate on Friday. The motion was “Children should do chores.” I wonder who would have convinced you to vote with them.

Our Spring Walk with Sam, County Ranger.

Published by under 2013/14

Today went out on a Spring Walk with Sam, the County Ranger. What a beautiful sunny day it was. Sam took us down the Pendrachin Wood and she asked us to look out for signs of Spring by showing us lots of pictures of what we might be able to see. We played a game with Sam and she also set us a task of building nests with what we could find. We had a lovely morning out and we all enjoyed ourselves. Thank you to Sam and all the helpers. We hope you enjoyed yourselves too!

P1/2 learning with El Nombre

Published by under 2013-14,2013/14


Primary 1/2 have been extending their understanding of money.  They have been learning to recognise coins by sight, make amounts with different coins, read prices and add up amounts to find totals.  Today we went outside to practise writing pound signs in the playground with chalk.

These are the much requested links to the El Nombre clips that we have watched in class…

Parents beware there may be slightly wild dancing as these clips begin! :)

Published by under 2013/14


As part of World Book Day P3/4 organised a whole school book swap.  They worked together as a team to discuss ideas, give information to classes, collect and sort books and finally to present the books for today’s swap.

Everyone in school also received their £1 book day token which can be used to buy one of the specially produced books or exchanged to spend towards a more expensive book.

Happy Reading.

Making toast

Published by under 2013/14

P1/2 made toast as part of their topic yesterday. First they washed their hands and the table. Next they got everything set up and put the bread in the toaster. They counted to 30 and put the toast on their plate. Then they spread butter and jam on it. Finally they ate it! They thought it was delicious.
Unfortunately they had to tidy up after themselves.
