Hallowe’en Activity Afternoon

The Parent Council organised a very successful Hallowe’en Party on Friday 25th October. As a change this year it was decided to have a Hallowe’en Activity Afternoon. Sophie’s Mum, Bonnie, very kindly agreed to do face painting throughout the afternoon. The pupils also made a mummy hot dog, a mask and they painted a poppy on a stone from the River Clyde which will be placed at the War Memorial before the Centenary Celebrations. Mary(Rhiannon’s Mum) and Kerrie(Cooper’s Mum) helped with that activity.┬áIt was a great afternoon. A big thank you to everyone who helped in any way. The pupils then went home to get ready for guising around Crawford. A great day was had by all.

On Sunday 11th November some pupils will be involved in the centenary celebrations of Remembrance Day. The pupils have been thinking about the importance of this day, have been learning some war songs and have been working on their own version of a First World War soldier. It will mean a lot to the pupils to be involved in the village event.

The Drone Visit

On Wednesday 10th October Iain Wales, son of Mrs Wales, visited the school with his drone. He talked about his drone to the children explaining how it works and how much practice it takes to fly one. He then used his drone around the village of Crawford so the pupils could see a bird’s eye view of the school and the village. A big thank you to Iain for giving up his time to visit the school and help with the P1-3 topic.

On Friday 5th October the pupils took part in a fundraising event in aid of Covey. The pupils dressed “loud” for the day and did the Daily Mile to loud music. They were very excited when the Covey Bear attended the event and did the daily mile with the children and staff.Thank you to everyone who donated to this worthwhile cause.

This week was like Christmas. Huge parcels arrived and the children were allowed to unpack them. It was new loose materials for the playground. They are fabulous and the children had a ball setting them all up. They were then allowed some time to play on them and the health and safety regulations were discussed. Lunchtimes and playtimes have now become very exciting!!
