Term 4 News (April - July 2014)
Onesie Day Like This
School closed for the Summer Holidays on Friday 4th July, so we celebrated by having a 'Wear Your Onesie to School Day'.
As to the Gnomes........ no explanation is forthcoming.
School re-opens for pupils on Wednesday 20th August at 9am.
P7 Leaving Do
We celebrated our P7's time with us on the evening of Wednesday 2nd July. We had homebakes, a free raffle and some surprise video performances.
It was good fun as the P1s demonstrate below:
Queen's Baton Relay - July 1st
We were invited to Brae to take part in the Queen's Baton Relay. We took along our version of the Clyde mascot, which seemed to 'Wow' the crowd. It even impressed the 'other' Clyde!
Our Clyde with one of the Baton relay holders.
The school went bird watching with the RSPB on Tuesday 24th June. We were lucky enough to see Oyster Catchers, Redshanks and the elusive Red Necked Phalarope. We even got the birds on Video.
Mr Rose took us hunting for M inibeasts in the burn below the school on Tuesday 17th June. It was really good. We got to use the nets and we were able to identify some species. The sun even shone.
Our camera's card won't let us open some of the pictures from the past fortnight so - this once- we are having to resort to typed news without the usual photos.
Our Tapestry Queen has worked her magic. Its finished and is about to be despatched!! It looks twice as good in reality.
The pictures don't do it justice!!
These are some close up details of our tapestry
A Sunny Day Picnic
When the good weather arrived we decided to make full use of it.
We were outside looking at Growing things, how plants respond to daylight and enjoying lunch al fresco.
We went out to find natural objects and then create a scene or mural. We worked in groups to produce these.
Despite a burst of Summer recently we have continued to work. This was a typical Maths lesson. But the older pupils were mentoring the younger pupils whilst they were working on their number work.
Spot the bird!
During our week of Summer (which was 26th-30th May) we went and started on the Redd Up.
We cleared the road ditches from the school to the Beach of Houbie and then cleared the beach at Aith. Later on in the week we cleared about a third of the way along the links at Tresta.
There are very few photos to put on the website this week, as we have been busy in a quite secretive way!
So, a veil of secrecy will be drawn over this week! All will be revealed shortly....
St George's Day
P6 and P7 were given a challenge on April 23rd. They had to research St George and then plan and teach it (appropriately) to P1-P5.
They managed it!
Over the holidays our Tapestry Queen has been working her magic on the background.
P1 were counting eggs and chicks all the way up to 12.
We went on a slightly late Easter Egg hunt around the school grounds.

Everyone was pleased to find the eggs!
