Swimming Success

Massive congratulations- 2 medals in one competition!

James and the giant peach performance


On Friday morning the whole school got to watch a production of, ‘James and the giant peach.’ It was a great show filled with songs, dancing and laughter. We all enjoyed it very much.

On Wednesday and Thursday this week we had a different teacher as Miss Campbell got to attend the Scottish Learning Festival. Mrs Mackay (not the HT) was there on Wednesday when we had a visit from a group of adults that came to discuss anti-bullying. The adults played some games with us and shared some stories from their past. They have delivered this workshop to over 8,000 children already and will be visiting more of our classes this term and next.


Indigenous drumming workshop

On Thursday the whole school got the chance to participate in a drumming and dancing workshop. The type of drums we were playing was native to Africa. We all got the chance to play a drum, sing an African fisherman song and partake in some dancing.  We LOVED the day and are still dancing today.  Here are some photos from the workshop.

Golden week in P5

We have had the most amazing week in Primary 5.  From all our silver cards and certificates to getting our first gold card, it has been a fantastic week for us in Primary 5.  We even got the star class of the week award at assembly.  Miss Campbell is overjoyed and  filled with pride at all the amazing work P5 have done so far this term.  Keep up the good work everyone and have a super weekend!

Out and about with angles

This week we have continued to learn about angles. We have been finding out about the different types of angles and their degree size. We have been doing a mixture of worksheets, textbook work, computer games, cutting & sticking and we even made it outside to hunt for angles in our playground.  Here are some snaps of our outdoor lesson.

Space Chase reading success

Congratulations to 2 of our super P5 pupils.  Both managed to complete the Space chase reading challenge. They had to read at least 6 big chapter books.  Great work guys!

P5 Recognition wall

Breaking News! Primary 5 recognition wall is ready to go live on Monday. We are really proud of our new display. Each pupil has designed their own token as part of the wall.  If we manage to meet our weekly target we get to move up a step on the ladder. We are ready to rumble on Monday.
