P6 Camp Day 1

Day 1 at camp was a great success. Everyone arrived safely, and enjoyed settling into their dormitories with their friends. Mrs Mason paid them a surprise visit, and made sure everyone was settled and happy before heading back to school.

The children did a range of activities with the instructors in the afternoon (more pics to follow after camp) before some free time before dinner. Mrs Honeyman joined the children and staff for dinner, before games out on the field and in the woodland. The children took part in a range of games and particularly enjoyed a game of camouflage hide and seek in the woods.

Then it was back to the chalet for hot showers, PJs and supper. Mrs Clements surprised the children with another staff visit, and made a delicious supper of hot chocolate and cake. The children had time for indoor games with Miss Curran, Mrs Harris Toner and Mr Devine before heading off to bed.

The wet weather certainly did not dampen their enthusiasm!

Carnival Comes to Dalry

The whole school enjoyed an amazing performance assembly on Monday by International Artists from around the globe who are part of the Edinburgh Jazz Festival Carnival. We enjoyed music, dance and drama during their performance show to us.

If you’re interested in more carnival experiences there are lots of classes and events at St Brides ahead of the big event in July. Click here for more info. 

P4/3 Forest School Diary

Week 1- Back to the forest for some and a new adventure for others. The pupils had a great time getting to know their surroundings and making pictures on the forest floor.

Week 2- Lots of bug hunters finding different creepy crawlies in the forest today. Well done to everyone working well in their teams to make brilliant shelters.

Week 3- Not the best weather but never mind, hot chocolate in out shelter makes everything better!

Week 4- We used a bow saw today to cut ‘wookies’ (wood cookies)

Week 5- Don’t get stuck in the spider’s web or you might get caught! P4/3 had to use their balance and ninja moves to get across our giant spider’s web. We were all impressed by the flames our fire had and very happy to toast a marshmallow or two when they died down.
