Today primary 5 were doing an assembly about Advent. I read about the meaning on Advent wreaths I said in some churches, there is a Advent wreath it is a circle of evergreens with four candles one for each Sunday of advent .People light the first candle on Advent Sunday . A larger candle stands in the centre it is lit on
Christmas day.


During the P5 assembly I was doing a survey, the survey was about most wanted Christmas presents. I was with Guy, Lewis and James but James couldn’t do it because he was ill. The thing I enjoyed most was at the end when I went to see my Mum because she was so proud of me.
I was introducing the assembly and introducing the different people. I ended the assembly, the thing I enjoyed most was seeing my Mum as well because she was so proud of me.

We started the assembly by singing Christmas has started then people showed our advent calendars and they chose someone to open it .My part was about Saint Nicholas. I was a little nervous but I was just fine.

My part was to show my calendar and this is what I said :This is my calendar. This is how you use it. Each day you push a mach box and you will get a chocolate. I will pick someone to open it.

Primary 4 have been learning about the body

This week we found out that at the bottom of our stomach we have got a muscle that goes up and down when we breathe. The muscle is called the diaphram. We have got a windpipe that goes down through our throat. The windpipe carries air to our lungs.
by Hannah

I learnt that your lungs go like balloons when you breathe out and my mouth and my nose are joined together

Interactive Whiteboard

The whiteboard is great and all of P7 like it. (Michael)

The interactive Whiteboard is a superb thing to use.I really enjoy playing with it and has so many things to play on it and there is a library to find pictures on it and there is snakes and ladders button too. You click where the dice is and then you just click on it and it rolls.Oh and you know after a football match they take a pictures and they use the arrows to show where people were and where they should have been we have that sort of thing too and I just can’t get over how great it is!!!

The Snow Child rehearsals

Primary one, two and three are practicing hard for the show. Its just like an episode of the X Factor. I’m told that Mr Cain is Simon Cowell and Miss Chalmers is Sharon Osborne.

Mrs Schimmerman and Mrs Murdoch are directing and Mrs Anderson is busy making sure all the readers have nice clear voices.

We can’t wait to watch the performance on December 13th. Show times are at 1.45 and 7.00

Meet our enterprising primary fives.

Primary five were set a class enterprise challenge last week and have produced some fantastic results.

I made a Christmas stocking for my advent calender.I made it out of felt and cardboard. I got the idea from a Christmas catalogue.It took 2 weeks to make it and the hardest bit was getting the chocolates to stay in the pockets.

I made a Christmas house and chimney.I made it out of lego and cotton wool. I got the idea from my Mum and Dad. The hardest bit was sellotaping  the cotton wool to the top of the house.
