Super Sewing in P3A

We really enjoyed creating our festive decorations using cross stitching. The kids were super at helping each other and kept trying even if they found it tricky! Thanks to the parents helpers and Mrs Mehmood who helped us, especially to thread needles! The kids did a great job and can’t wait to bring home their decorations for the holidays.


Move over Strictly …

… it’s the Sciennes Dance Show!

Everyone was thrilled and swept up in the magic of the dancing! Mr Hunter was overheard saying, ‘fab-u-lous’! All the dancers and speakers did a brilliant job! What a joy of a Friday morning!

Here is a flavour of the magic!

Fun on the Farm

P3 enjoyed visiting Langhill Dairy Farm today. We got to meet the cows and their calves up close. We also saw the milking parlour and learned all about the dairy industry. We finished the morning by making some butter and we even got to milk a cow!!!! Don’t worry…. it was Charlotte, the plastic cow. We now know what goes into our little milk carton at school.

P3A Langhill Farm

Primary 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Langhill Farm today. They got to see how a dairy farm works and how the cows and calves are looked after every day. They learned a lot about dairy products, how much cows eat every day and how cows are milked. They even all got to try milk Charlotte the plastic cow!

Autumn Art

P3A took to the outdoors today to scavenge for leaves for an animal art activity. Needless to say, a massive pile of leaves keeps 30 kids happy and entertained for quite a while! Here’s a snapshot of some of our leafy creations from this afternoon

P3 Harvest Assembly

P3 did brilliantly in their roles for the Harvest Appeal for Foodbank. As usual Sciennes was very generous! Assembly saw the front of the hall looking like a supermarket! Thank you everyone! & well done P3!

P3C Apples and Pears

Come and try one as one of your 5 A Day! Take a look at the wonderful apples and pears we made as part of our Food and Farming topic. We used a variety of materials to make them and then sponge painted them to look as realistic as possible. They look delicious!


P3C enjoyed a great Harvest afternoon! They went on a treasure hunt and made either apple punch or hay bales! I’m sure they would love to make some at home for their families!

Here is a flavour of our afternoon!

P3As Marvellous Medicine

*No Grandmas were harmed in the making of this medicine* Continuing with our instruction writing and linking to our recent class novel ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’, P3A created a concoction of our own. We talked about the order we would put in our ingredients and what our bossy sentence would be as we made our medicine! We all tried a spoonful at the end, thankfully with no side effects apart from a mini sugar rush. But that just gave us extra energy to do our instruction writing!

Pizza Express

P3A ventured to Pizza Express for their first class trip this year to become professional pizza chefs for the day! There we met Dexter who helped us follow the steps to make our very own tasty cheese pizzas. The rain held off long enough for us to sit outside and enjoy a slice or two before we went back to school. A big thank you to Hamish’s mum, Leo’s mum, Annie’s mum and Mrs Mehmood for accompanying us on a thoroughly enjoyable trip.
