World Book Day Reschedule

Due to the closure for snow Dalry Primary missed out on celebrating world book day.

Instead we will be rescheduling our celebration for this Friday, 9th March.

If your child wishes to they will be welcome to attend school dressed as a character from a favourite book they have read on Friday.


Joseph Coelho Poetry Event

On Thursday Joseph Coelho visited Dalry Primary school with the support of The Scottish Book Trust .

Joseph is a leading children’s and performance poet and was here to educate, entertain and enthral.

He did all three in good measure, introducing our P4-P7 classes to metaphor, onomatopoeia, rhyme, emotion, rhythm, aliteration, personification and simile.

He did so in a way that left big grins and excitement all round along with the ability to use a wider range of poetic tools.

If your child is interested in learning more about Joseph and seeing more of his performances use the links below.

Thanks for the visit Joseph Coelho and thank you to the Scottish Book Trust for supporting and providing it.

Scots Assembly and Sorries Visit

The whole school enjoyed a very special Scots assembly led by ‘The Sorries’ to mark our annual Scots focus week. Our children from nursery to P7 performed a variety of Scots songs and poems, and we all loved the live music performance from ‘The Sorries’.

P4 and P5/4 also enjoyed a bodrum drum workshop after the assembly was over with Douglas and Martin.
