P3/4 Assembly: A celebration of their learning

Friday 11th November was P3/4’s turn to lead our weekly assembly. Their assembly was a chance for them to share with the rest of the school and parents, what they have been learning about this term. It was great to see how much knowledge the children had gained about a variety of topics in such a short space of time.


We learnt about the rainforest. It was interesting to find out about the different levels that there are in the rainforest and which animals live there. The class had done some fantastic artwork to represent this.


They also helped us get ready for winter! We learnt about the snow and flooding, including seeing pictures of the flash flood at Mrs Henderson’s house! We learnt about how germs can be spread by sneezing and P3/4 even got some volunteers from the audience to help with their demonstrations.And they showed us all what to pack to help us be prepared for the winter weather.


P3/4 ended their assembly by talking to us about Remembrance Day. They explained why we take time to remember on this day and what we are remembering. They told us about the different colour poppies people might wear, including purple poppies to remember the animals that have lost their lives in wars.img_2017


P 5/6/7 Assembly: Respecting Rights at School

Friday 28th October saw the children in P5/6/7 present their assembly to the other children, teachers and parents of Lamlash Primary School!


The children told their audience about the work they had been doing on rights and responsibilities, and how these affect children at school. The audience learnt how important these rights are and that we need to respect our own and the rights of others.



Ruby, Oscar and Imogen told us that children have a right to play with other children, but that they will respect this right by letting others play with me and join in with games and activities.




P5/6/7 also highlighted key young people who had made a difference to the rights of children around the world.

Jas and Caitlin told the audience about Thandiwe Chama stood up for the right of children to live in peace. When she was young there were not enough teachers so she walked the children to a different school. She won the International Children’s Peace Prize in 2007.img_1920

At the end of the assembly the children read a poem about peace by Dorothy Roight and then shared their iBooks with their parents and members of the audience. These iBooks were able to teach us more about some of the young people who have won the International Peace Prize for standing up for children’s rights.


Activities Week

We’ve had a fantastic time this week taking part in different sporting activities each afternoon!

In August this year we achieved our Gold School Sports Award from Sprt Scotland. As part of this our sports committee, with help from Mrs Henderson, designed and lead an activities week for the whole school. This was great fun for all the school and we all want to say a massive thank you to our fantastic sports committee.

For more photos and further information, please see the activities week page on our website:


Jeans for Genes

Today we had a Jeans for Genes day organised by Mrs Stewart and the pupil council! Lots of children (and teachers) wore their jeans to school and donated a pound. We also had a cupcake sale and Mrs Stewart was painting children’s nails a lovely denim colour…for a fee!

These activities helped us to raise £99.80. This money will go to the Jeans for Genes charity and all the money raised on Jeans for Genes Day will fund a range of different initiatives that improve the quality of life of children affected by genetic disorders.

If you want to find out more about what genes are (and not the ones that you wear!) try watching our video below. Or if you’d like to find out more about the charity please take a look at their website:


Cathy Macphail Visit

As part of Book Week Scotland we were delighted to welcome Cathy MacPhail to Lamlash.  Some enthusiastic readers from our P5-7 class were lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet Cathy and hear her talking about her books.  Cathy is well known for writing spooky thrillers for younger readers as well as teen novels and has the unique ability to get to the hear of serious, topical issues through the stories of her feisty characters.  Cathy has won the Royal Mail Book Award twice alongside numerous others and has become a favourite author for a number of our children and young people. Many thanks Cathy for an inspiration and enjoyable session!
