The Fun Ones

Congratulations to our wonderful P6 and P7 pupils who are supporting all of the children in school with use of the playground games.  Known as “The Fun Ones” these P6 and P7s are acting as responsible citizens and helping us develop our social skills.  Like Purple Man would say “Help everyone respect others”  Well done Fun Ones!

Playground Launch

Today we had a successful launch of playground equipment.  We had parents and children dancing in the playground with Andy McKechnie.  Thank you to everyone for making it such a successful venture.

P2 Homework

Thanks to parents who contributed to our homework dotmocracy at parents consultations in October. We used this information along with our own reading and research to come up with exciting and engaging ideas for children to work at home in a creative, productive and engaging way.
Guess what? it worked. This week EVERY primary 2a pupil and almost all pupils from P2b completed and shared their homework – they were SO excited and motivated.
Well done children (and parents!) Keep up the good work!
Let’s aim for 100% next week P2b!

P4b Fashion Designers

As part of our Time Travellers topic, P4b have been learning about fashion trends of the 1980s and creating their own designs. See if you can spot the shoulder pads, fingerless gloves and leg warmers in these first drafts by Laila-Mae, Kiera, Isabella, Sophie and Robert!

 

Forth Rail Bridge Fly Over

The primary 1 children tried to glimpse a sight of the Spitfire planes yesterday that flew over the Forth Rail Bridge as part of the 125th anniversary celebrations. Sadly the planes must have flown in the other direction and we were met with clear skies but no Spitfire. We did catch the odd seagull however!
If anyone took any photos and would be happy to share then please email them to the school office and we can let our Primary 1 children have a look!

Visit from the Royal Observatory

A visitor will be in school on Monday 16th of March to talk to children about Space and the up and coming Solar Eclipse. He will work mainly with the Primary 2’s and Primary 7’s as these years have studied space as part of ongoing class work. There will be an opportunity for other pupils to ask questions during a question and Answer session at the end of the day. Lets see what interesting and exciting questions you come up with!!!

Glow

P7b have been learning to use the new Glow in class and we now have our own class Glow page set up.  Encourage your child to log on at home and leave a comment or upload a picture of you working together on homework.

Eclipse

Watch this space… Strathesk are having an eclipse celebration…more details to follow!
