SPS Scottish Euroquiz Champions
In March the P6 Euroquiz team won the Stirling schools' heat and qualified for the national final, which was due to take place at Holyrood, Edinburgh in June. Obviously this was postponed and the rescheduled national final was rearranged virtually online. It took place on Monday 2nd November (pupils now P7). The team consisting of Logan (not pictured), Holly, Harrison and Connor and subs Oliver and Joseph worked really well together and in pairs to answer a range of questions related to European geography, culture, famous people, flags, currency amongst other things. One of the rounds was a 'languages' round listening to native speakers in French (and other languages) and answering questions about what they were saying. We are incredibly proud to say that the team were victorious and have been crowned National Euroquiz Champions 2020. Here is the link to the video announcing the winners. The team watched the video to find out who won and their faces were priceless when the realisation hit them!
This year all the children and staff entered fully in to the spirit of a fun day and came to school in fancy dress. The costumes were fantastic and enjoyed by all at the costume parade. All the children danced as they watched the other classes parade past. Hundreds of pumpkins lined the daily mile path for the pumpkin competition. There were some fantastic designs. The children were treated some sweets and treats after class winners went to pick them up by trick or treating at Mrs Cassidy's office. During our online virtual assembly "Mrs Witch" announced the winners. Thank you to the parent helpers who helped to set up the pumpkins and to organise a fantastic pumpkin hunt as an afternoon house competition. The children had a great day and we have had many emails from parents saying how much their children enjoyed all the activities.
Guy Fawkes at SPS - 5th November
All the children enjoyed an afternoon having hot chocolate around the campfire. They learned about Guy Fawkes in the morning. After break the children took part in a transient art house competition. The houses competed against each other to make the best picture using natural materials. In the afternoon it was time for fun around the fire and hot chocolate with marshmallows.
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. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and at least two PCs available for the curricular use.
