Nursery 2 had lots of fun collecting Autumn leaves in the playground.
In September our P7s went on an incredible adventure to Cromdale!
They learned how to get over their fears and work as a team together. They even had to get up super early and do chores!
Some of the activities which the children took part in were: mountain biking, canoeing, gorge walking, abseiling and rock climbing.
Lana from P7 said: “I loved the gorge walking. It was really scary but at the end I was very proud of myself.”
The children had to work hard to help each other in the activities. It was a great way to get to know each other better and really brought them together as a class.
They also got to meet some funny and amazing instructors called Bella, Seb and Ian as well as the super cook Richard.
Primary 7 had a great experience and have said that they would love the opportunity to go back.

Big Me Day
In Kirkhill this week the children have been taking part in Big Me day. The children donated £1 and were allowed to come to school dressed as what they want to be when they grow up. The school raised £160 for ActionAid which will go towards supporting some of the world’s poorest children. The money will help the children get a better education and hopefully a future career.
The best costumes were picked out for a picture that will be shown on the office TV.
The majority of the children came dressed up as footballers, doctors, policemen, builders, vets, gymnasts, dancers, singers and YouTubers.
Carly McIntosh in P7 said “I enjoyed dressing up as a dancer and I liked that it was for a good cause.”
It sounds like everyone had a great day for a great cause. Well done!

In September 2016 P4-P7 had a healthy breakfast. The breakfast was to encourage kids to eat healthier and let them try some new foods.
We had some great results! 92 children said they liked the breakfast and 2 children said that they didn’t. 26 people liked toast the best,20 people liked bagels the best and 14 people liked watermelon the best. Grapefruit, Fruit juice and cornflakes were liked the least. All together 96 children attended the healthy breakfast. Iona Matson in p7 said “My favourite fruit at the healthy breakfast was pineapple and strawberries. My least favourite food was melon.”
Mostly at home children have toast (29) cereal (19) and fruit (13) for breakfast. 24 children said that they don’t have breakfast at home.
Teri in P7 said “It’s a great idea! I only wish we could do it more often.”
