Diwali Celebration

We all had an amazing nursery and P1 Diwali celebration on Tuesday 10th October.

We were treated to a morning of singing, dancing, activities and food which was celebrated by many of our families at Dalry.

Thank you so much to all the families and pupils who performed and helped out.

P7b Going Outside and They May Be Some Time

P7 visited the National Library of Scotland this week to learn about Ernest Shackleton and his treacherous expedition to the Antarctic.  This ties in with our Health and Well-being focus of ‘Resilience.’

Our group leader Callum knew lots about the topic and was able to answer every question we had.  He gave us an opportunity to wander round the expedition, take photos and take part in some drama related to the background story.

The end result of this wonderful visit was a P7B silent movie starring US as Shackleton’s crew, heading off on ‘Endurance’ to the Antarctic, failing and then being finally rescued.  What a fantastic day we had!!

P7b Confuciousing Maths

P7B have been doing some revision of measurement to start off the new school year.

As part of some volume revision, we decided to do some building challenges using different landmarks from Beijing as our inspiration.

In pairs we set volume challenges, whereby we had to recreate popular landmarks with the correct volume specified by our peer. A challenging but fun way to learn about measurement!

P7B NSPCC Talk

Dalry had a visit from the NSPCC this week.

We had a very informative assembly on Monday and then were lucky to have a workshop in our class on Tuesday.  The children learned about different types of abuse that can happen and where they can go to for help.  As well we all learned the important number to ring if they need to contact ‘Childline’ for support and advice.

Thank you to the ladies who took time to come in and discuss these really important issues with us.

P7 Attend Concert

Primary 7 went to see the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the Ross Band Stand.

The concert took inspiration from the evening’s Virgin Money Fireworks Convert and included Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty, as well as Sir James MacMillan’s Stomp, and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies An Orkney Wedding.

Erin Morrison congratulates Su’a Li a member of the Orchestra.
