P3a Spring Haiku

P3a have been creating beautiful spring haiku.

Haiku are a Japanese form of poetry that uses a three line format and restricted numbers of “morae” which are similar to our syllables.

They also work to juxtapose two ideas and have a kind of fulcrum word where the balance shifts from one to the other.

They are often related to a spring or natural subject. So with spring in the air and P3a doing Forest Schools it’s the perfect time for trying them out.

P3 Loose Parts Introduction

Primary 3 were learning about the world through creative play during their loose parts play session this week. We saw some engineers, explorers, inventers, beauticians, builders and problem solvers to name but a few!

Loose parts introductory sessions are going on throughout the school at present as we roll out our loose parts play programme.

 

P4’s Egyptian Museum

P4 asked to share their learning with the school, they were enthusiastic about their topic and learnt a lot of interesting facts and they wanted to inspire others to learn about the Egyptians also.  They decided to create a museum and used their visit to the museum to help plan every aspect of the day themselves. I was very impressed about their careful consideration as to how to encourage people to explore the exhibits as well as have fun while learning.

It was a very successful day and we would like to thank all the classes and parents/carers who visited on the day. To celebrate the end of the topic the pupils wrapped some volunteers up as mummies!

Spring Fair 2018

We recently held a very, very successful Spring Fair at Dalry Primary.

All classes, and the nursery’s parents, put together some amazing stalls for everyone in the school to try out.

From lucky dips to beat the goalie, treasure maps to (temporary) tattoos.

In total over £200 was raised.

Many thanks to all the staff and students who worked so hard to make it such a success.

Here are some of our best pictures from the day.
