P4-7 have entered a cookery competition organised by the Food Drink Federation Scotland and sponsored by Brakes.It is called the Braw Lunch Brake Challenge. They have split into two teams and have created a dish to cook. One team decided on a pot noodle, the other time chose a McCrawford. They each made their dish and the rest of the school tasted them and reviewed them. They hope to be successful in the competition. Good luck!
To complete their mini topic on Germany, P4-7 had the chance to taste some German food. They had a try of rye bread, German meatballs, Hahnchen sticks and German chocolate. The pupils rated the food out of 10.The meatballs were a big hit!
On the last Tuesday before the Spring Break the pupils and staff joined the Tea on Tuesday folk to do an Easter Quiz and have a blether. It was a lovely time and everyone enjoyed eating, drinking, a good natter and the quiz. A big thank you to Mrs Nunes for making up the quiz. The winners were Rebecca, James and their lady helper. Thank you to the Tea on Tuesday people for their great hospitality.
There are two Lunchtime Clubs running at the moment. On a Monday all pupils are attending a tennis club and on Tuesdays all P4-7 pupils are members of the recorder group. Well done everyone.
In Health and Wellbeing P1-3 were investigating what makes a good role model. They chose our prefects Rhiannon and Euan as perfect examples. Well done you two!!
On Thursday 7th March P4-7 pupils travelled to Lanark Race Course to take part in the annual Small School Cross Country training. They all did really well and tried their best. In the P6 boys race George got 6th place which allowed him to win a team Gold with the P6 boys from Abington. Euan got 8th place in the P7 boys race and this entitled him to a team Gold with the other boys from Abington. Well done everyone!
On Wednesday 13th March Alistair and Steve from Project 3 came to school and worked with the children on Technology.

In the afternoon P1-7 worked together in pairs and created their own animation movies. The end result was amazing and the children were wonderful.
