A big Thank You From The Eco Group.

The Eco group would like to give a big thank you to all the pupils and parents who helped make our book swap last Thursday such a big success.

We are happy to report that all children who brought a book from home left with a new book and story to enjoy.

Here are some photos of very happy and excited children with their newly swapped books.

Beauly Primary Book Swap

On Thursday the 24th of May 2018 the Eco Group will be hosting a book swap in each class to encourage pupils to Reuse, Reduce and Recycle their  books.

If each child could bring at least one unwanted book that’s in good condition and at an appropriate age level for their class. Could parents please explain to younger children that a book swap means they will be going home with a different book not their own, so as not cause any upset.

Thank you to all the pupils and parents for all their support in making our book swap day a success.

Happy Swapping.

Science Week

So far for Science week we have had great fun. We have learnt about sound, soluble and insoluble, food chains, magnetism and made a potion to make us into superheros by Measuring the volume of each liquid ingredient. What a busy week so far and it’s only Wednesday!

Learning how energy from the Sun is used in a food chain, with the Aigas Field Center staff.

Learning how Magnets work.

Learning how sound travels through vibration.

Measuring the volume of our liquid ingredients to make potions that:

  1. Make people into Butterflies
  2. Turn your hair a rainbow colour.
  3. Make everyone in the world Happy
  4. Make fire.
  5. Become a superhero.

Making Drawbridges

As part of our Castles topic, we went to the School garden and engineered our own drawbridges using only what we could find in the garden. There was some very imaginative designs  and excellent team work, which is clear to see in our pictures.

The Blue paper was the moat, the mat was the Castle and we had to build a drawbridge that would get us over the moat without getting wet. Fantastic fun!

Mask Competition Winners

The pupil council would like to thank all the pupils who took part in the mask decorating competition to raise money for MFR cash for kids. It was clear to see that Beauly has a lot of very creative personalities which was evident in the standard of design.

Here are a selection of the wonderfully creative masks.

we are very pleased to post, the wonderful winners were:

Erin McKinnon P1 for her Sheep mask.

Finn Johannsen P1 for his Tiger mask.

Finlay Seller P3/4 for his person mask.

Iona Simpson P5/6 for her Decoupage mask.

Kodaly

We have very much enjoyed the last four weeks of Kodaly with Mr Thompson learning new songs and rhythms, but aim to continue on with the music sessions ourselves as we enjoyed it so much. Thank You Mr Thompson.

P5/6 Thoughts About Taking Part in BGT.

My name is Oisin and i will be performing three separate musical pieces on the piano. I am quietly confident that my performance will go smoothly but I’m counting on everyone’s support and encouragement.

Our names are Iona and Freya. We will be performing a modern dance routine to ” No Excuses” by Meghan Trainer. We both have butterfly’s about performing but we are both extremely excited for our acrobatic demonstration on Friday. We have practiced tirelessly for the last 5 weeks and are looking forward to the explosions of  cheers after we have done our performance. See you there!

Beaulys got talent coming soon

We are really looking forward to our own superstars preforming at Beaulys got talent on Friday evening at the Phipps Hall at 6:30 pm.

Prior to this event we will be having rehearsals on Thursday the 26th and Friday the 27th during school hours.

Therefore we would ask that all participants bring with them any props, costumes and music they may need.

We’re sure you will join us in wishing all the participants the best of luck when performing on the night and we hope to see you all there.

Salt Dough Fruit

As a continuation of our “healthy eating and farm to fork” topic we used salt dough to make our own pieces of fruit. We made Apples, bananas, lemons, oranges strawberries, plums and cherries. We molded, baked and painted them to look like real fruit. Aren’t they a work of art?
