We have had lots of fun getting our hands dirty at gardening club. We had help from Kelsey’s granny and William Montgomery. We planted potatoes, peas, beans, lots of herbs, marigold, Busy Lizzie, azalea, saxifrage and sowed some grass.
William told us about different types of worms, how to feed our plants and why the heathers needed trimmed back.
Well done to the coders who took part in the after schools club to learn more about sequencing, loops, procedures and conditionals using Beebots, Probots, and iPad apps such as Lightbot, BlueBot, Box Island, Hopscotch and Scratch!
French Club for P7
This year we have planted onions, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and begonias. The children painted their own pot and potted up some sunflowers. They also chose between pumpkin, carrot, beetroot, peas, parsnip or rocket to pot up and take home to care for. The P6/7 planted some flax and our potatoes from last year have sprouted again. We have been taking care of the beds, weeding and watering while we have been there but as we are away through the summer any help with this would be much appreciated! Many thanks to Carol Rainey, Harriet and Katie Mitchell and Shirley Malcomson for helping out!

Extra Curricular Activities:
Our children enjoy a range of additional activities which, we hope, are enjoyable whilst adding to the experiences delivered in our classrooms during normal school hours.
All clubs are open to girls and boys.
We express our thanks to the Upperlands Development Group who make their beautiful Linen Hall so freely available to us.
Some of these activities could not take place without the extra help of volunteer parents who fulfil the role of "additional responsible adult", particularly during clubs at Upperlands Linen Hall.
***Pick-up For All Clubs: No later than 4.05 pm***
