P5-7 School Football Team

 

Over 30 children took part in try outs for the school football team. Mrs McCormick and Miss Allen ran the try outs and selected 9 children to represent the school. We went to Balfron on Friday night and played against their school team. The children kept their spirits high despite the loss and the absolutely torrential rain! It was a pretty dismal night but the chocolate crispy cakes provided by Balfron primary definitely helped!

School Family Walk

We had 52 people join  us on the school family walk. We met at Colzium and had a picnic lunch. The children enjoyed running around and playing together. Then we did a 2 mile loop around the estate before finishing off in the park. Thankfully the weather was kind to us and the sun was even shining.  Thank you to all of those who brought their families along on a Saturday afternoon.

Primary 6 worked in teams to research a European city. Next, we wrote a script for our very own 'European Travel TV Show' using our research. After writing the script, we worked on our presentation skills. Then we filmed our shows using a green screen background. We also edited our films and added music and credits to our shows. We hope you enjoy watching them.

Wee Spuds

Some of the Wee Spuds were able to get their photo taken at the Strathblane Co-op with the largest cheque we have ever seen! The Wee Spuds want to pass on our huge thanks for the support of the Strathblane Co-op in the last few years as we have greatly benefited from being one of their local causes. This recent funding will be used towards getting the growing space up and running again in the Strathblane School Nursery garden after the building works is complete.  We hope to inspire a new generation of gardeners and help them grow vegetables, fruit and wild flowers and learn where their food comes from.

With a little bit of help from some adults we then moved the new rainbow planters made of recycled plastic into the poly tunnel at the allotments and planted the autumn herbs into the soil in them (Oregano, Thyme, Coriander, Parsley, Lemon balm, and Pineapple sage). We will enjoy using these herbs in different cooking recipees.

Please get in touch with the School if you would like to get involved with the Wee Spuds. We are looking for a family to help look after our allotment plot and a Parent(s) to help run the group next year. 

Cross Country

On 6th November, 35 children from Strathblane Primary and Nursery took part in the Springburn Harriers cross country races. The conditions were extremely tough, running through thick mud. Every single one of our children completed their races. Adults from other schools commented on how resilient our children were after losing their shoes or big falls in the mud, every one of them got up and ran on! We also had quite a few children finishing in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in their races. Jessica S. from the nursery finished in 3rd. Tasha and Tamsin F. finished in 2nd and 3rd place in the p1 and p2 races and Isla S. finished in 2nd in the P3 and P4 race. Well done to all those who took part.
