The Clan Chiefs are hard at work judging the entries to the Easter Egg contest, which will be announced later today.
We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries this year, especially given we weren’t able again to have a judging in school thanks to the pandemic. Hopefully next year we can do that again, especially given the amazing work by all entrants this year.
Normally on this Monday of the year we would be starting Scots week, learning about Scottish culture and language and having a brilliant Scots assembly with The Sorries.
Well The Sorries surprised us today by sending a brilliant video assembly for us.
The link is below. It is one of the highlights of our school year but not normally one our parents and carers get to share so why not watch this over your lunch or after the working day with your whole family to share the fun.
Whilst we have not been able to have our annual Nativity performance all together in school we have still managed to produce a digital version for everyone to enjoy. Primary 1s and P1/2s practised and recorded their singing and dancing outdoors following Scottish Governemnt guidance, P2s from P1/2 were recorded narrating the story and P2s acted out the story on the stage. The very talented Mrs Ewen with some help from Mr Bennett edited the clips and have put together an amazing show for you all to enjoy.
I’d like to thank all of the staff teams in P1, P1/2 and P2 for working their magic to make this all possible for the children, and for the parents and carers to have a lasting memory of their child talking part in this popular annual event.
The whole school watched the premiere at 9.15AM in their classes and P6 were given the link to access at home on Teams whilst they are self-isolating.

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.
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!
