Badminton



 
 
 

 
Rita from Badminton Scotland came to our school to do badminton session with us. At first she played games with us like around the world where you have to hit the shuttle and run round the court. Then we played small matches in groups of 4 and also learnt some positions and all the lines on the court.  Some people are going to represent the school at a competition on the 19th October.

SSPCA


SSPCA

We had a visit from the SSPCA to tell us about the work that they do and share how we can be animal friendly citizens.


 


We have had a great harvest this year and we are looking forward to cooking with the vegetables in our kitchen.
 

 

RHET- Wheat


 

Sara from RHET came to help us harvest our wheat that we have been growing since March. First we had to cut the wheat then we put it in a pillow case and hit it against the wall. We then had to empty it out on to a white tray and drop it on to a blue tray to dry it.  We are looking forward to using the wheat to make our own bread. Dylan filmed the machine doing the same process on his farm so that we could see how it was done.

The Journey of Milk


The Journey of Milk

 

 

 
We have been learning about how you make ice cream and looking at ice experiments in science. We had a visit from Sarah a lady who used to work for Wiseman dairies. We got to dress up and she told us about the journey of milk.

On the 3rd of October (2016) some more chickens came to our school which were kindly given to us by Lorna Duff. We were given 5 more chickens putting us up to 8 altogether. If you would like to try some of the eggs they are available in the entrance hall of the school.

Interact


Interact

Every Tuesday afternoon our school is doing interact drama project that is run by the NHS. Ann-Marie is a drama worker and she is working with Miss Campbell to deliver it to us.  We play acting games and we also work in groups to do short mimes. We had to make up a story with a witch, a one legged giant and a bridge.

Cricket Festival


 
On Wednesday the 5th October 2016 P4-7 went to a cricket festival at Callander Primary School. We did loads of activities and games like throwing a ball at a trampoline and then trying to catch it, continuous cricket and throwing a ball through the holes. Everyone really enjoyed themselves at the cricket.

Sound Start



Every Friday Mrs Moore and Mr Packer are coming into school to teach p4-7 music.  We got to choose an instrument that we would like to learn. The choices were from flute, saxophone, euphonium, trumpet, trombone, clarinet and percussion. We also played some fun games and we are really lucky because most schools don’t get the opportunity to do this. We will be having sound start all year.

New Pupils


We had 4 new p1 pupils join us in August.
