The nursery children are ‘Edinburgh Festival Goers!
We enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Edinburgh Festival as some of us visited the Royal Mile and attended a show.
Welcome to the P7B page! We are keen and enthusiastic to take on the challenges of P7 and are preparing ourselves for the big move to High School next year. Please stop by our page to take a peek at some of the things we are getting up to this year.
We are taking part in an IDL study of China this year to coincide with the opening of the Confucius Hub at Dalry Primary School. To help us understand where China is in relation to Scotland, we have been brushing up on our mapping skills and geography, using the atlases and globes to help us to identify the different seas and oceans, continents and countries within them.
On Wednesday the school was lucky to recieve a visit from a quartet of members from The Red Note Ensemble.
“Since its formation in 2008, Red Note Ensemble has taken up a leadership position as Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, performing and developing both an extensive, highly-varied and critically-acclaimed programme of new music.”
The quartet performed for P6 and P5 in their classrooms, bringing the pupils into contact with pieces by Janáček and Shostakovitch, amongst others.
Many members of P6 and P5 were visibly enthused by the experience, referring to it afterwards as “extreme” and “exciting”.
Thank you very much to the Red Note members for their kind visit.
DALRY ASSEMBLY PROGRAMME 2017-2018
Monday @ 1:15PM
Sharing learning and presenting to others is a key learning experience for our children. All pupils should have the opportunity to take part in a class assembly during the year. We hope to share our School Values, develop an understanding of Respecting Children’s Rights, aspects of Health Education, particularly building resilience and the work of school groups. We also celebrate whole school events and any fund raising focus. We have community partnerships with St Andrews and St Georges, Gorgie, Dalry and Stenhouse Church and St Martins Episcopal Church who support our assembly programme at Harvest, Christmas and Easter. We work closely with our local ministers and aim to reflect and celebrate all Faiths. We aim to reflect the diversity of our school community in the widest sense through including celebrations of all world religions throughout the year.
