Breakfast Time!

P1/2 have been learning about a healthy breakfast. With a partner they had to sort a selection of pictures of different things we can have for breakfast. They put them in order on a diamond 5 frame. We then spoke about why we thought the picture at the top was important and why we thought the picture at the bottom was not the best choice.

In writing the children wrote instructions to make a bowl of cereal. By the end of the morning Miss Read had 4 bowls of cereal! She practised using the children’s instructions both verbally and written. Great work everyone!

Family Fit Fun

If anyone can think of a better name for the new club we have on Wednesday mornings before school . . . . . .  please let us know. Set up and run by the parent partnership the new club is a great way to start your day. Every Wednesday from 8am – 8:30am we’ll have some sporty games and fun in the gym hall followed by some healthy breakfast and snacks in the dining hall before we start school. It’s a family club so kids must come with a parent or carer.

For the next few weeks we’ve got Colin, Eric and Kirsty coming in to play some games with us and do a wee bit of dancing. This week we kicked off with the winter Olympics. Featuring curling (Scotland is very good at curling), the Biathlon and the Luge.

Please come and join us next week.

If you’re happy and you know it….

Clap your hands!

Today p1/2 tried something a bit different for Music. We linked 3 curricular subjects together to create the start of our very own compositions!


In our teams we had to clap out the syllables in each of our fruity words. Then, we each had a turn of being the conductor. They had to point to each of the pieces of fruit and the other members of the band would clap the syllables out. Each conductor would try to create a pattern using the fruit/syllables/claps.


At the end of the lesson we performed in our groups in front of the class. We had great fun!
