We celebrated world book week at SPS from 6-10th November. It was a busy week filled with activties to celebrate reading. Throughout the days 4 bells would ring and everyone would stop what they were doing and pick up a book to read. Each class made a display about a book they have read. Each day children had an opportunity to bring in a book that they no longer wanted and swap it for a new book in the book swap. The Primary 7s invited everyone to take part in a favourite character drawing competition. The winners recieved points for their house. The P7s also organised and hosted a book quiz. All children went along and took part in small groups. Two representatives were chosen from each class to be part of the house team. They wrote their answers down and this was checked at the end of the quiz. Well done to the House Captains on a very successful event and to Netherton who were the book quiz winners. On Monday P7 had a visit from an authur called Craig Andrew Mooney. On Tuesday the P1-P6s enjoyed an inspiring and very funny visit from author Stuart Reid. He had all the children rolling about laughing and keen to read more in his books. On Friday children had the opportunity to take part in workshops. All children from Nursery through P7 took part in moving round to various classes. In each class there was a different activity involving reading. Primary 1 have been on a mission to read 50 books to save Storyland. They have nearly reached their target and will have a party to celebrate. Primary 2 went on a Jolly Postman trail around the school completing various challenges and made a display about it. Primary 7 have spent a lot of time writing their own books and shared them with their buddies when they finished this week. Here are a few photos from the week from some of the classes.
Thank you to the Parent Council who organised a fantastic evening of fun for the children at the Halloween disco. Children from nursery to p7 enjoyed dancing, music, snacks, facepainting, colouring and lots of other activities. During the day children laid out their pumpkins to be judged and these lined the entrance to the disco. It was a brilliant evening which all the children really enjoyed.

Thank you so much to all the families who came along to help on the welly day. The biggest job of the day was building fences around the new wildflower gardens. Several teams worked on this while the rest of the people got busy spreading woodchip. We managed to get 4 tonnes of woodchipped moved around the play structures and in the nursery/p1 garden. Once all of the woodchip was distributed we got busy collecting leaves. The children worked very hard on this task. Thanks again to all who gave up their afternoon to come along and support the school.
School Family Walk
On Saturday 28th October a group of families and staff from Strathblane Primary School and Nursery met at Colzium for a picnic and walk. Thankfully it was a lovely day and the rain held off. We walked past the Banton Loch and round the grounds finishing off at the park. The children enjoyed playing together in the park as the adults chatted and pushed various children on the different swings and equipment. It was a wonderful day out and thanks to all those who came along.
Strathblane Primary School has been on the current site since the mid sixties. The building is set in beautiful countryside with easy access to the natural world for environmental studies projects. Pupils enjoy spacious accommodation with classrooms, general purpose room, and hall with stage and P.E. facilities, separate dining area and a computer suite. Outdoors there are generous playing areas, both hard and grassed. The Parent Council and local businesses have been very supportive in helping to raise funds to improve the school grounds. Parents, friends and the school’s pupil leadership groups have planted trees, shrubs, bulbs and other plants to enhance the environment.
