Art Tasks

Hello litlle lambs and brilliant busy bees.

Thank you so much for keeping us up to date this week with all your emails, pictures and tweets.

We miss you all dearly.

We hope you have completed your rainbow challenge for this week.  Here is the list of the other art activities you can do and then stick it up in your window to keep everyone smiling.

An extra wee Easter challenge is to discover what your Easter Bunny name is from the photo below.  Can you design a poster of it in your learning book for us?


Have fun and follow us on twitter @SchoolHolm

Take care and be safe.


Good Morning to you all.

You can listen to David Walliams audio stories every day at 11am for the next 30 days.


You could use your Learning Jotter as a diary to record your activities over the next weeks.

Maybe you can write a few sentences about some of the David Walliams stories then draw a picture with a caption.

Primary 2

Little Buddies

This term we have been enjoying teaching our little buddies how to use our fantastic Chrome Books.

We are showing them how to log on and then helping them to play a selection of maths games!


Burns celebration

We have had a fantastic day in P1, P1/2 and P2. We have been learning about all the things we do to celebrate Robert Burn’s birthday.

” I liked making the potato head because I made him look funny. ” Robbie G

” We celebrate Robert Burns being born.” Finlay C

” I liked the pattern things doing tartan.” Ethan Y

” I learnt how to do some Scottish dancing.” Hollie B

Here are some pictures of the children making their tattie heads.


P2 Christmas party

Just a little note to say that the P2 christmas party is on the morning of Monday 16th . We can not wait to get our dancing shoes on! Please can the boys and girls come dressed in party outfits. They will then get changed into their uniforms before break. Please make sure they have their uniforms in their bags.

It will be a fun morning with lots of games, dancing and party laughter!

James and the Giant Peach

Today we were very lucky as we went to see a play in the school hall.

It was called James and the Giant Peach.

It was based on the book by Roald Dahl.

There was lots of singing and dancing and some popular songs that we had heard before.

“It was good that one man did nearly all of the story.” – Maria

“I liked the singing.” – Iqra

“It was good when James met the Ladybird.” – Amelie
