On Friday, Primary 6/7 royally entertained their parents and friends with a fantastic assembly based around the language work they had completed over the previous term. They showed they could be both informative and entertaining.
Brilliant performance from all of them. Clearly there are more than a few budding actors and actresses in the class. So proud of them!
Another busy STEM session at our after school club!
We used KAPLA to make all kinds of structures – from a spider to a house! We also worked in small teams to design a bridge to get three figures safely over the water without falling in! We could only use paper, cardboard, sticky tape and string…
Well, we seem to have survived what has been a quite incredible week of events and experiences. The children have worked so hard across the whole range of curriculum areas: art, music, drama, numeracy, literacy, social sciences, technology, PE……… and the contexts could not have been any more relevant.
Many thanks to all the staff, the parents, members of the community and, of course, the children. they have done us proud, once again, with their appetite for learning and performing. This has been such a busy week, but also such a rewarding week. It really underlines what a special community we have. Thank you all so much, and here’s to another 50 years!
STEM club started after school today for P4-7 pupils.
Pupils had to work cooperatively to complete two STEM challenges. Using only the materials provided, they had to build a freestanding bridge which could hold a toy car and the tallest freestanding tower. Lots of fun and creative thinking! Thank you to everyone who came along!
It was great to welcome families into school towards the end of November, and give them a chance to see at first hand what learning looks like in our classes. It was a miserable day, but we had a 28% turn-out which we hope will rise in subsequent Open Mornings. Listed below are some of the comments left by our partners…… thanks to all who joined us on the day.
“Lovely tour around the school.”
“Great open door policy, I always feel informed and welcome. Staff are really welcoming.”
“Fab tour of classrooms…..always nice to get to see what the kids are learning.”
“Lovely to see how the children are learning and getting on in class. Great atmosphere!”
“So nice to see what goes on in class…….such a bright, colourful and friendly place to learn.”
The table below shows the responses to our stakeholder questions carried out over Parent Consultation evenings. The balance % scores were either ‘not sure’ or ‘disagree’. We feel that the responses are very encouraging, but, as always, will strive to do better.
