Our Christmas Show

This week we performed our Christmas show and sang our hearts out. It went super well and our audience were amazed. All the actors and actresses remembered the lines really well especially Maia  who had so much to learn. Every class were fantastic and performed really well.

We are still practising our songs so we can sing them at Tesco next week. We also sold our baubles at the Christmas Show. You can still buy the baubles if you bring in £3 next week.

We wrote our  final draft of Titanium in literacy and it went very well. We have learned how to upscale our sentences and words and to use the show and not tell technique. We have also learned how to use the different tactics from our slow writing. We have discovered how to write a story without being really repetitive. We are going to display our writing so feel free to come and have a look. Continue reading “Our Christmas Show”

NYCoS Singing Groups

Dear all,
We are now in the process of delivering taster sessions for the NYCoS singing groups to all P3 classes (and some P5s). if you have not already had yours, you will be getting them soon!
I have had some enquiries from parents who say the link isn’t working in the email that has gone home and I am also finding some children haven’t had forms. Would it be possible to send this message out again to all parents? Thank you.
“Bookings for the National Youth Choir of Scotland Singing groups are now being taken. P3 children will have had or will be having a taster session in school. Please follow the link on the information leaflet that comes home to register BEFORE Tuesday 19th December, or click
Choirs are open to all P3-P7 children. If you don’t have a leaflet, please click the link above for all information or contact
Children who are not registered by Dec 19th will need to call 0131 653 5252 in term time only or can try just turning up on the night. Choirs start back week beginning 8th January.”
Thanks all – we won’t turn anyone away who does just turn up to a group without having registered, but we’re trying to encourage registration in advance.

A Spotacular Week!

This week has been spotacular. Today is Children in Need and everyone went round four activities in their Houses – Pudsey battleships, Design a Mask, All about Children in Need and the Spot Hunt. It was lots of fun and we raised lots of money for Children in Need.

We have been making Shadow Puppets this week. Our new IDEA is Lights, Camera and Action and we have studied a lot about the cinema.  We have been learning all about shadows and before cinema some countries entertained themselves with shadow puppets and stories using shadow puppets. We have also been planning a stage set for a scene in a play and next week we will make them making sure something moves and there is light. Continue reading “A Spotacular Week!”

Welcome to Primary 7!

Primary 7 is full of opportunities, hard working, fun, our next step to High School and full of friendly faces.

We started our year off with an amazing trip to Benmore. We learned how to be independent, how to work well in a group and encourage each other and not to be scared of the unknown. We came back from Benmore ready to use those skills in the classroom and have done so through all our curricular areas.

We are dedicated to our Vision, Values and Aims in Primary 7. #Grow! Create!Shine! Continue reading “Welcome to Primary 7!”

Stoneyhill Blog and Newspaper Club

Thank you to all our hard working children that attended the first blog and newspaper club today.

After sharing lots of ideas and lots of deliberation the children decided to name our newspaper ‘The Stoneyhill Mini Mail’. This will share a collection of events, achievements and sporting news from across the school.

Look at the mind-map below to see some of the fantastic ideas they want to share with you.

Keep your eyes peeled for the new Stoneyhill Mini Mail page, coming soon on the website!!
