Mr D. ran one of the most anticipated assemblies of the year today.
The Dalry SPorts day and PE Star awards.
The winning teams from the lower and upper school were first up for their medals.
They were followed by Mr D’s PE Stars. Mr D. chooses his PE stars based on who has shown the most effort and determination in PE rather than simply those with the best results. PBs and PMA are first in Dalry PE.
P5 has been working hard all year towards their Discovery level John Muir Award. Pupils have to discover and explore a wild place. We visited Corstorphine Hill on a number of days during the year. They had to help with a conservation activity and for this the class helped sow a wildflower meadow in Murieston Park which will come into flower in July or August – feel free to visit! Finally the had to share their learning with others. The class has had a lot of fun and led an assembly on 10th June to share what they had done. Well done all!
Mrs Mason and Mrs Honeyman got that warn fuzzy feeling as we listened to all the ways in which our children and families have made a difference as part of this terms Building Resilience learning.
Some of the ways they have made a difference include helping out at home, litter picking, planting a wildflower meadow, raising money for charity, building a bug hotel, recycling clothes and toys, looking after baby siblings and writing a rap of ways to save the planet.
We also learned about the way that the staff team have made a difference by running the Edinburgh Marathon in three relay teams. They raised over £800 for Barnardos and Richmond Hope. Both of these charities work with children in our school and make a real difference to their lives.
