This morning, Amy from the SPCA came to talk to the children in Nursery, Primary 1,2 and 3. We found out what Amy does to help look after animals who have been hurt. She told us that sometimes she has to catch snakes in a pillow case and about a man finding a tarantula in his towel cupboard………

Great fun this morning at our school ceilidh!
Every class has been working very hard in PE learning lots of different Scottish dances. The children in Primary 1 and 2 did the Haymakers Dance and the Waterdown Reel. Even the teachers danced the Dashing White Sergeant – Mr Purves was very good at spinning us around!


Chinese New Year


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Social Studies, Transition | Posted on 06-02-2014

Our Buddies in the nursery have been finding out about Chinese New Year. They came to work with us this morning to tell us all about their learning.
We watched a short film together.

Next, Mrs Munro told us a story about a Chinese Dragon. We worked with our Buddies to draw our own Chinese Dragons. Mrs Jamieson put the finished dragon pictures into a book so we can look at them together. Primary 1 had an important job to do when we were working together. They had to help the Nursery children find the drawing pens and colouring pens and show them where we put finished work in P1.
Afterwards, we helped our Nursery Buddies use the choosing board to play in learning areas. We had to show them where everything is kept and how we tidy things away when we are finished.
It was a busy morning!

What’s Behind the Door?


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Expressive Arts, Inter-Disciplinary Learning, Social Studies | Posted on 04-09-2013

To help us find our way and learn about our school, the children have been challenged to find out what is behind every door.

We decided that the best way to do this was to open them and have a look! Yesterday, we went for a walk around school, opening doors and taking photographs. Today, we drew some pictures of what we saw. We are going to make lift the flap signs for all the doors to help visitors see what is on the other side of each one.

Can you see the staircase, the office, Primary 5 working and the Primary 7 classroom with big windows?
