We’ve have had such a busy month in school…
To kick off the month, the nursery were treated to a magic show. The magician, delighted the children, with tricks, jokes, balloon animals, plate spinning and much, much more. The school could hear the childrens’ laughter throughout the corridors.
The Christmas Fair, was a huge success. There were games, home baking and some wonderful handmade crafts. Parents commented on the wonderful atmosphere.
Everyone, sang along to Christmas songs as they ate a beautiful Christmas dinner, prepared by our very hard working kitchen staff. Thank you all so much.
The nativities have been fantastic this year. Nursery, did a presentation of ‘It’s a Nativity’ and P1 and 2′, Prickly Hay’. After all the preparations and rehearsals, the children all performed beautifully and I’m sure their parents shed a few tears of pride.
P7’s held a bake sale at the ‘Coffee Den’ after the P1/2 nativity to raise funds for camp in May. They brought in baking from home and lots of parents who watched the nativity went to the dinner hall for a coffee and very kindly gave a donation for some of the home baking. We raised a grand total of £103.62. A big thank you to everyone who contributed.
The Glee Club performed at Tesco. They all sang their hearts out and parents and grandparents came along to see them. Well done everyone!
The Christmas parties were great fun. Children and teachers enjoyed Scottish dancing as well as some traditional party games. There were a few rosy cheeks afterwards though and a everyone was glad to sit down to treat and a well-deserved cool drink! Thank you to the Partnership for providing the food.
There was a very special visitor at the nursery parties!
There were some very fancy homemade cakes!
Primary 5 put on their own entertainment! They had a class talent show and there were dancers, comedians, gymnasts and singers! Well done P5!
And finally… The weather was kind to us as we rounded off a very busy and exciting month with a visit to the church, where Reverend Lydsay welcomed us at the door. P7’s read a Christmas poem, played musical instruments and the rest of the school sang songs from the nativities and of course a few from our top 10 Christmas songs. It was such a lovely way to end the term.
