Some of us went swimming, we had a Big Sing with Mrs Ewen, the school music teacher and many of our parents joined us and also a Harvest Celebration, with David at St Martin’s Church, from where all our donations will be shared with people in need in our community.

Primary 3B have been having a brilliant time in the Forest on Wednesdays and this week they were inspired by National Poetry Day 2017 to compose their own poem.
The theme of this year’s National Poetry Day is ‘Freedom’ and the boys and girls felt that this was a perfect theme for describing their explorations and adventures at Forest Schools.
I hope you enjoy their poem!
Freedom of the Forest
I see with my eyes,
Sun shining in the sky,
Floating seeds drifting by,
Tall trees pointing to the sun,
A secret path to paradise.
I touch with my hands,
Prickly plants, ouch on my skin.
Soft leaves, nice moss.
Hiding in trees that tickle me,
Rough rocks and slippery mud.
I taste with my tongue,
Blackberries so ripe and yummy,
Watch out for the red ones – so sour!
Hot chocolate, sweet, chocolaty and yummy.
I smell with my nose,
Fresh air all around me,
Flowers like dandelions,
Plants that smell good,
Hot chocolate and berries.
I hear with my ears,
Tweeting birds, singing in the trees.
Shaking trees, the wind blowing the leaves.
Swishing, crunching, splashing footsteps.
Bees buzzing next to me.

P6 are learning French this year and looking at France and its culture. We tackled the Pointillisme painting technique made famous by the French Impressionist Geoirges Seurat.
The patience and determination shown by the pupils led to beautiful results. Will we see a Dalry pupil’s work in the National Galleries one day?!
We have been learning about the fruits that are harvested in autumn. We had apples and dried apple rings, plums and whole prunes (which are dried plums) and pears and pear spread on our bread for our snack. Yummy! We also talked about which of these foods we ‘liked’ and ‘didn’t’ like because we are learning to make the Singalong signs for these words. Great learning everyone!
