Diwali in P2

To celebrate Diwali, P2 read the story of Rama and Sita, made paper Diya hanging decorations and drew Rangoli chalk patterns in the playground.  We especially enjoyed making our beautiful decorations and bringing them home to show our families.

P1/2 Diwali

We have been really busy preparing for Diwali in class this week. We used clay to make gorgeous DIya, painting them white and then decorating with colourful paints and glitters. Our Rangoli mat was a collaborative effort and looks amazing at our classroom door. One of our lovely P2 girls preformed a spectacular dance and performed a show with puppets! Well done P1/2 and Happy Diwali! 

P6 2020 Diwali Celebration

We haven’t been able to have our usual Diwali extravaganza at Dalry Primary this year but P6 stepped in and have organised a fantastic classroom sized celebration.

The video of the celebration is at the bottom of this page along below some photos of the event and behind the scenes preparations.

P6 also wanted you to watch a BBC video about Diwali linked next.

Happy Diwali everybody and well done P6.

Dalry’s Got Talent 2020 Showreels

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of the performers who have taken part in Dalry’s Got Talent 2020!

Thank you to the parents and carers as well who helped to record the wonderful performances and send them in. 

There was an incredible number of entries so I have had to create two shows! The first show is for the Nursery to P2 performers and the second show is for P3 to P7.
All of the performers will be receiving their prize in the post soon.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the shows!

P7 Goodbye and 2020 Awards

P7 pupils visited the playground yesterday as part of their transition project to leave their goodbye messages to one another and to the school.

We surprised Raul in P6, who was visiting with his sister Christina, by presenting him with the Citizenship Award. Raul was presented with this award for consistently demonstrating our school values. ‘Together we are respected, responsible, included and kind’.

Later that afternoon Aoife was surprised when she arrived and was presented with The Cup of Kindness for demonstrating a consistently kind and caring attitude throughout her time at Dalry.

Mr D popped into the playground an presented both Meda and Andrei with his Mr D PE Superstar awards. It was lovely to see so many of our P7 pupils and their parents one final time across the day safely  in a socially distanced manner.

Thanks to Miss Curran for organising the transition event so well, and for taking the time to say goodbye to her children and their families who were able to visit as part of their daily exercise.

Dalry P6 Sports Shield Winners

Dalry Primary’s P6 would, in normal times have been part of the group of children attending the interschool games at the hub in the last week.

Instead Active Schools organised an online submission event to take the place of it. The results are in on the attached PDF

We are proud to say that our P6 have taken the volleyball shield in the competion.

Congratulations P6 and well done on the hard work. Everybody who took part will also receive a prize in August.
