Erasmus Ceilidh fun

Our Erasmus partners were given a very warm Scottish farewell at St Thomas’ ceilidh 30th November. Our visitors had spent three days at the school learning about the Scottish curriculum as well as showcasing lessons that they would undertake in their countries. The visitors also had free time to explore the delights of Scotland – kilt making, whisky distilling and of course Nessie searching!

Ring of Brodgar

P1-3 pupils were learning about the Ring of Brodgar in Orkney. We found out that they were built atleast 4000 years ago. There were 60 large stones in a circle, but now only 27 remain standing. The pupils built their own stones using clay, then we used different materials to make up the heather, grass and water that surrounds the stone circle. Mrs Wilson was really pleased and proud of us – what do you think?100_2318

Singing Success

The P1-3 pupils have been learning Scottish songs for our International visitors who are being welcomed by St Thomas’ at the end of November.  They were so fantastic they wanted to teach the rest of the school…

A fond farewell to Mrs Main

Mrs Main received a musical “cheerio!” from the pupils on her recent retirement. The staff and parents collection gave her a silver cross, a plant, vouchers, money and wine. The P1-3 also wrote a prayer to wish her a long and healthy retirement. Mrs Main has taught at St Thomas’ for over 16 years, she was mostly spotted in the middle class (P4-5), as well as out and about enjoying Outdoor Learning. Mrs Main will also be remembered for her highly creative skills in art and crafts and her excellent guitar playing. She shall be missed, but promised to return to help in Activity Clubs!!100_0795

Eco Defenders and Tesco’s triumph over weeds!

The ECO Defenders ACE group (see below pictures) have been helped by Tesco Community officers to help get rid of pesky weeds that have grown over the summer holidays. In our determination to de-weed our garden we found interesting mini-beasts that have enjoyed our garden; worms, caterpillars, snails, beetles and very large spiders!
Thank you very much to Fiona, Amber and Stephanie who helped us.

ECO Defenders to the rescue!
