P5 Mandarin Launch at the Museum

P5 helped launch the Mandarin education video and hunt today at the museum. Please find attached a video of their performance and some photos. I am having difficulty uploading the video we took and all the photos. Any suggestions on best to get them to you. They are on my phone at the moment.


P5 returned to the National Museum of Scotland today to launch the Mandarin Education video and hunt they assisted in developing. P4/5 were invited along to the launch as well as pupils from 3 other schools in Scotland. P5 had to plan and deliver a presentation before they all went on a hunt to find the Chinese objects. The aim was to learn the main colour on the object in Mandarin.  Reporters from the Evening News were in attendance so look out for the article and photos from the launch.  All the pupils performed with confidence, I was proud of their enthusiasm and commitment.

Before returning to school we had time to explore the museum and have some fun.

P1 and P1/2 Scottish Country Dance

As part of our Scotland topic we have been learning some of the key skills involved in Scottish country dancing. We can all now dance  a simple reel together and have really enjoyed listening to Scottish music during these sessions. We have loved teaming up with Blythe boys and girls from P1. Miss Low is a fantastic caller and coach!

It has been Scots week all week at Dalry Primary.

We had our Scots week visit from The Sorries who taught some of our classes the bodhran and then performed a show of traditional Scottish songs for us.

the first half our classes also performed their Scots week poems (the second half are next week.

Thank you Sorries and well done all performers.

STEM Masterclasses

We started the New Year with a bang and launched our new STEM masterclasses. The children from P3 to P7 enjoyed a wide choice of STEM activities including coding, pixel art, robotics, puppet making, cooking, baking, clay model making, ICT games, Stop Motion Animation, weaving, Hammabead design, Garage Band and chess. We were fortunate to be joined by our STEM ambassador Colin and supporters from our local building Scottish Building society, as well as school volunteers and Allessandra our newest JET student.

Thanks to everyone for making week one a big success!
