On 11th November at 11am the pupils and staff held a 2 minute silence to remember those who have fought and lost their lives in conflict.
At the end of the silence a video of The Last Post was played. This video was provided by Mr Johnstone, teacher of the The Youth Music Initiative. The video featured pupils from South Lanarkshire Council.
P4-7 are hard at work on their new topic “Or Crop, Our Land”. The pupils have invented a cash crop called The All Rounder. They have created a fictional farming community called Croptopia. They have created farming families and have written biographies about each family. The children are enjoying the topic and looking forward to finding out what happens to this farming community.
As we could not have a “normal” Hallowe’en party in school we decided to have a fun Dress Down Day.
All the children came to school in casual clothes.They decorated pumpkin biscuits and made slime. We had an outside party and played games like Hallowe’en Corners, Musical Statues and Musical Chairs.Mrs Nunes, as usual, did a bit of cheating in that game.
We all had a fun time and were then looking forward to Hallowe’en in our village.
The wee class have started work on their new topic “Farmland”. So far they have been learning about vegetables and meat and also about vegetarian food. In their class they have a toy farm. Soon they will be learning about farm machinery and safety on farms.They have been learning lots from a youtube channel made by 2 young children.
