We have been learning all about road safety and sharing this with P1.
Enjoy the holidays!
Primary 1 had a fantastic time watching the dinosaur eggs hatch and are now delighted to show you all Claw and Lily, our P1 dinosaur friends. The children suggested names and then voted for their favourites, with Claw and Lily being the most popular. We think they are very cute!
Very proud of the Millbank girls and boys cross country team today. Their behaviour, effort and team spirit was commendable. Well done to you all! Mrs Amos.
P5 really enjoyed learning about music, rhythm and beat during their Feis music sessions. Mrs Amos.
P2 have had a visit from outdoor learning expert Shona Amos.
We were going to be having a morning of outdoor learning but the weather was very wet so we stayed inside. Our topic is trees and the P2 children were engaged and enthusiastic during her visit. She brought in a variety of natural materials for us to explore and looked at different woodland creatures and worked out where in a tree they would live.
She was very impressed by primary 2’s knowledge of deciduous and evergreen trees!

At end of September GM1, 2 & 3 were fortunate to get a visit from Gaelic author Ceitidh Hutton. She introduced us to her new book, played lots of games with us and also brought Grumpa in to meet us. We also made bee puppets – mòran taing Ceitidh. Bha tòrr spòrs againn!
We would love some Lego to play with at nursery. It is so good for our creative and mathematical thinking as well as for developing our fine motor skills. If anyone has any spare bits we would be delighted to receive it.
Primary six have been working hard on their oceans topic this term and have created a giant art display for our classroom wall! They painted each layer of the ocean in groups from light blue (the layer nearest the ocean surface) down to black in the trench zone where no sunlight would reach.
They used the ipads and chromebooks to research sea creatures that live in their group’s layer of the ocean. They each chose a different sea creature and designed these for our wall.
We have been discussing how deep each layer is and learning the scientific names for each layer. Did you know the midnight zone is called the bathypelagic zone?
Check out the photo of our display.
P7 did an outstanding job of leading the whole school in various outdoor activities today. They worked hard in their groups to develop activities that took into account the abilities of all their fellow pupils from P1-P7. Teamwork was very important and they were able to show and develop their teamwork skills while doing this. They organised and resourced everything perfectly and were very professional running it on the day. Feedback from pupils and staff has been overwhelmingly positive!
Well done all P7s – you were outstanding.
Here are some pictures from today. I’m sure there will be more to follow.
