Forest School Day 1

The pupils from P1-7 experienced their first Forest School Day of the year, just before the October holiday.

The children walked to Fairy Gate Wood and on arrival the big class trampled down the overgrown areas around the fire circle and the paths.

They then did the risk assessment so they would be safe during the activities.

The wee class made toast over the campfire with Mrs Nunes. They ate it with jam on.Yummy!

The big class made clay faces with Miss McCartney.

The activities were then swapped round and after that it was free play.

The children did a half day in the woods as it was the first one of the year.

They walked back to school and had a yummy lunch of soup and fish fingers from Joanne.

All in all it was a great day.Big class at campfire Wee class at acmpfire Walking to Fairy Gate Wood

New Sign

painted sign at front door

The pupils of P1-3 made this beautiful sign for the front door. They each coloured in some rainbow letters. They were then displayed on this piece of wood donated last year by former parent Mrs Mhairi Hunter. She thought we would be able to use it in some way. She was right!

Thank you Mhairi!

End of Term 1

Both classes have worked hard all term, getting back into the way of school life. They have all enjoyed seeing their friends and teachers again.

The Big Class loved their unit study “The Stick Man with the Big Bum”. They enjoyed trying lots of activities that the main character tried. The favourites were Chalk outlines, Squirt Toy and Live by the Dice.

S1 Farewell

Last Friday George, Callum, Zoey and Nadine visited us so that we could say a proper goodbye to them. We were unable to do this in June because of the Lockdown.

P4-7 organised a sport event The Hunger Games.It was a great afternoon and the refreshments provided by Joanne were delicious.

The S1 pupils were presented with a scrapbook full of good wishes and lots of wonderful photographic memories.We wish them all the very best at Biggar High School and in their future.
