P6/7 – Remembrance Poppies

In the lead up to Remembrance Sunday, and as part of our art for our World War One topic, P6/7 have been busy making poppies to be included in our whole school display.

As we are an ECO friendly school we chose to use recycled plastic bottles to create our poppies. Once we had carefully cut out our desired poppy shapes we used acrylic paint and sharpie to create our realistic looking flowers. We think they are really eye-catching and will be a great addition to the display.

When we tweeted our pictures we even got a retweeted from Poppy Scotland!

Remembrance Assembly tomorrow

P5 and P6/7 are organising a special Remembrance Assembly tomorrow, showcasing what they have been learning over the past two weeks.  The focus will be on World War 1, and the role that children played during the wars.  As part of the assembly and our remembrance day commemorations, if any children are members of uniformed organisations (scouts, guides, boys brigade, girls brigade etc), they are welcome to wear their uniforms to school.

Look out for our special poppy display tomorrow.

P2/3 French Visitor – Ooh La La!


Exciting news!  We are  going to have school “Pen Pals”  from France!

Meet Nathalie who visited us today and gave us a beautiful photograph of her class.

She very kindly brought us some gifts – stickers, biscuits and nougat from France. The children wrote us postcards to introduce themselves too.

Litter Picking

The Primary 7’s have been most helpful today by helping train their primary 1 buddy how to pick up litter in the playground.

The Eco team visited our class to show us how much litter they had found just this morning, managing to fill almost 3 bags!

As a school we aim to look after our school and wider environment by keeping it clean and tidy. The primary 7’s accompanied the primary 1’s today on their first Lochardil Litter Pick in Primary 1.

We learned how to use the litter pickers properly and safely following the guidance and expertise of our primary 7 buddies!

A big thank you to P7 for all your help today!

Primary 1A Forest School – Week 1

Primary 1A absolutely loved their time exploring and learning new things outdoors in the woods during our first forest school!

The Primary 1’s had the best time collecting autumn leaves and conkers, as well as heating up water to make a lovely hot chocolate.

We were all very impressed with how well prepared the Primary 1’s were for their trip and wrapped up nice and warm!

There is a few items of clothing that have been left behind since our trip including a mix up between 2 pairs of water proof trousers. If you are missing anything please feel free to pop into the classroom to collect.

I am very much looking forward to hearing what they P1’s get up to next Tuesday!


Remembrance Day Poppies!

Primary 1A worked really hard today whilst learning about Remembrance Day and why we wear a poppy at this time of year.

After writing our poppy day poems we made our own poppies, which will be added to the whole school display, using cupcake holders and black and red paint.
