P3 Further Forest Adventures

P3 have been enjoying further weekly trips to explore the world outside through our forest schools programme.

The highlights of their recent sessions are below.

Session 3

‘We all enjoyed building shelters this week. We had to work well as a team and when we were finished we were rewarded with hot chocolate!’

Session 4

‘We made a fire this week. Everyone had to help gather wood of different sizes. Once the fire was lit we had marshmallows- yummy!’

Session 5

‘Had lots of fun exploring the forest and kept warm with a game of follow the leader. We all made journey stick to remind us of the adventures that we have had.’

Session 6

‘Our last session was great fun. As it was Halloween, we made a giant spider’s web and everyone had to try to cross it without getting stuck! We all made tree spirits to say goodbye to the forest.’

Diwali Dalry Style

Dalry Primary’s early level children and families celebrated Diwali with a wonderful morning full of colourful costumes, dazzling dancing and marvellous music.

Children and parents put on a sensational showcase of talent for the nursery and Primary 1 children, their families, friends and staff.  Afterwards the children enjoyed a variety of Indian foods in their classroom.  Thank you to all the terrifically talented dancers and performers, the parents and staff who helped to rehearse the children and prepare the food, and of course a special thank you to the super school staff Mrs Roy and Mrs Dugal who made such a great effort behind the scenes to coordinate the event.

शुभ दीवाली
ਖੁਸ਼ ਦਿਵਾਲੀ
દિવાળી ખુશ
இனிய தீபாவளி வாழ்த்துக்கள்
