8th June 2020 – Create a collage to make a beautiful display in the Primary School

What have you done today? What have you seen today?

Hi everyone,

Lots of you know that I love art and especially a good collage. I’ve discovered a new artist called Tracey English who makes beautiful collage pictures of the things that she sees. Tracey makes her collages by painting or colouring pieces of card or paper and then cutting it out to make different shapes.

I thought it would be lovely if lots of you got your creative hats on and used Tracey’s style to create your own collages of things you see or things you do. Once you have finished, if you send a picture of your collage into school and I will create a beautiful display of all of your amazing pictures for visitors to see as they walk into the school through the Primary entrance. We will put a plastic box outside the school entrance where you can leave your picture if you would like to.

Enjoy and happy collaging!

Miss Purves

Wallace Hall Cluster Sports Day & Health Week 2020

  • At this time more than ever we all need to remember the importance of staying healthy; physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.  In conjunction with the Active Schools and Communities regional sports day Mr Law has put together a week of activities that you can do at home.
  • You can choose any of the activities in the Health Week Grid and do them at a time that suits you on any day of the week.  If you want your photos to be included in the school montage then please email them into the school office. 
  • For the sports day follow the instructions on the poster in this pack and check out the Nithsdale Active Schools and Community Sport Facebook page for some fun ideas.  Like the grids you can do this at anytime during the week that suits your schedule.  You can also send up to 5 photos to Active Schools if you would like to (details on the poster).

Good morning everyone,

There is a brand new polytunnel at school. We are all looking forward to when we are back at school again, and you can all come and help grow things in here. Here is Mrs Hannah to give you a guided tour.

Plant answers – How many did you answer correctly?

  1. Peas
  2. Carrots
  3. Pumpkins
  4. Lettuce
  5. Tomatoes
  6. Sweet peas
  7. Nasturtiums
  8. Everlasting Daisy
  9. Runner beans
  10. Sunflowers

Can you guess the plant?

Lots of fruits and vegetables have been planted by the children and staff who have been at the Hub, and there are pictures of ten of them below.

Have you been growing anything at home? Perhaps you could try growing a sunflower?

Tell your teachers what you have been growing on ClassDojo and see if you can guess what each of the ten plants here are. It’s just for fun, we’ll put the answers up on Wednesday and you can see how many you got right!

Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme was kindness. Following on from this, the Other Curricular Areas Grids have an Emotion Works focus this week. Primary 1s if you would like to have a go at some of these activities, just take a look at the grid on the Primary 2 page.

Have a great week everyone!

A message to you all from the Primary and ELC

An update and thank you from Mr Graham

Hello everyone,

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Just like our physical health we all have mental health too. Our emotions, feelings, thoughts and behaviours are all parts of our mental health.  We all need to look after our mental health as well as our physical health. There are lots of ways to do this. Talking about how you feel, being active and exercising, and taking time to do things you enjoy doing can all make you feel good.

This year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘Kindness’. Small acts of kindness make other people feel good, and being kind can make you feel good too. All of the pupils in our school are really good at being kind to each other, and I know you will all have so many ideas about how to be kind to each other at home.

Do you remember the Kindness Jars we gave to each class in assembly a little while ago? Why not try making one of those for your house and writing down all the kind things happening in your family this week on scraps of paper and popping them in the jar? At the end of the week you could read them all out and I am sure you will be surprised by how many there are. All you need is a glass jar, some pens, old magazines or birthday cards to cut up and some glue, and your imagination of course!

Have a lovely Monday everyone.

Mrs Meredith

It’s bluebell time! Have you seen any on your walks? Where are the best bluebell woods near your house?

Can you challenge yourself to find out the name of something in nature that you don’t know?

27th April 2020

From today all of the learning grids are coded with the ‘High 5’ PARTY code. Please see below for details.
