WE HAD AN ASSEMBLY!!!

For the first time since March 2020 we had a full school assembly at Dalry.

To put that in context Our P3s last went to assembly over 1/3 of their lives ago and the P1s and P2s have never had a full school assembly.

There was a lot of excitement and many happy faces as we were able to celebrate certificates of achievment at all levels to gold and a very sepcial medal for Saanvi in P7!

It was amazing to have this massive step on the road back to normal. It feels like we are almost there.

Don’t Lose Your Lunchbox!

This picture is of a small section of our football playground at the end of a lunchtime.

We of course always try to reunite lunchboxes, tiffin tins and tupperwares with their owners at the time but as you can see from the picture the amount of lost items, and number lacking identifying features, can make be hard.

Sadly our lost property turns into a lunchbox mountain over the course of a term.

So if you can in any way mark your boxes with a name that would be very helpful. Either written in permament marker on the box, written on masking tape on the box or a proper name sticker. Even just a big sticker with a picture on that help’s the child identify their box and be a bit keener to care for it can help.

If you have lost a lunchbox or any property remember to check lost property.

Maths Enrichment Opportunities From Edinburgh University

Edinburgh University are offering 2 opportunities to stretch those number brains

Here it the information they have sent us.

Online Maths Circle- Saturday 26th March 2022

An online Maths Circles is one hour long events for 7-14 years old and their families. Children have a chance to tackle a variety of mathematical problems guided by University of Edinburgh staff and students. They are encouraged to behave as little mathematicians as they make conjectures, explore and explain possible solutions to open ended questions. We think these event would benefit all students, and not only the high achieving.

Most of the activities we use during our Maths Circles are courtesy of nRich (https://nrich.maths.org/

The next online Maths Circle will be this Saturday (26th March). Attendance is free but booking is required. 

Further details and info on how to book can be found at: https://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/school-of-mathematics/outreach/maths-circle 

Circles in Maths, Nature and Everyday Life (Edinburgh Science Festival): 9th- 13th April 2022

In April 2022 we will contribute to the Edinburgh Science festival with a drop-in session taking place at the National Museum of Scotland. Our activities will explore the characteristics of the circle, and how such characteristics underpin various aspects of science, technology and everyday life, such as using a map or rolling a coin through a vending machine.
