Masterclasses will be returning during the next term.
Masterclasses are a tradition at Dalry, we run them in the last session on a Friday and children are given a choice from a range of activites provided by all our staff. Some will be extensions of curriculum items like languages and coding, others will be practical skills and fun activities like cooking or lego building.
The children are put into groups mixed across the school from p4-p7.
Look out for updates on what we get up to on the masterclasses tab on this website.

In our P1/2 STEM masterclass this week we began to learn about programming. We loved using our Beebots and took turns programming them to travel to our friends! Next week we will be learning how to instruct them to turn left and right.
Masterclasses have started! But this year we are doing them in class groups.
For the next 3 weeks P6 will be using their STEM skills to create a stop motion animation! This week they made a start on constructing their plasticine characters and began to discuss plots for their animation film!
We yet again had lots of pupils find great success in the chess tournaments continuing under COVID 19.
Thanks as always to our team and great volunteer chess organisers.
Another successful puppet making masterclass recently wrapped up. Well done all puppet makers.
Our Puppet masterclassers finished their hand puppets last Friday. Great work all round.
Our Friday masterclasses have included puppet making recently.
Here are some pictures of the puppeteers hard at work.
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!
