Pupils from the nursery all the way through to primary 7 have been taking part in a host of activities.

The nursery have been developing their links with the local community by going on a number of trips.

The pre-school children have visited the Library, the Police Station and the Lifeboat. The pupils have also went for walks in the community – to a local pet shop, garden shop, the Co-op and the Doctors’ surgery.

Throughout the visits, the youngsters have been accompanied by Nursery Teacher Miss Allison, Nursery Nurse Mrs Nelson and parent helpers.

Primary 2/3 performed ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ on April 1.

The pupils have been learning about Egypt this term and organisers of the assembly said the solo singers sang beautifully. The assembly was well attended by parents and other family members.

Fraserburgh North School’s older pupils have also enjoyed a busy term, with Fraserburgh Community Artist in Residence attending the school.

Geoff Roberts has been in school working with the Art Club, parents and children and pupils from P4-7 to make art work for the flotilla event which took place in Fraserburgh recently.

Art Club parents and children and pupils in P4-7 - during their challenge times - made mosaic boats and ceramic fish using tiles.

Some of the parents and pupils walked in the parade from Saltoun Square to the Heritage Centre carrying their art work as part of the flotilla event.

Primary 4 went to Ian J. McIntosh the Butcher for a visit in March with Mrs Heron and Mrs Pirie.

The pupils learned about where meat comes from as part of their Scotland topic.

Following their visit, Mr McIntosh designed a competition for the children to make a brand new burger recipe.

The winner will get to make their burger in his shop to take home to their family. The winning burger will also be sold in the shop for a week for family and friends to try it. The class are eagerly awaiting the results of the competition.

Pupils in P5/6 made a film about P4’s Coastal Classrooms work with Paul Barron.

The film was shown to parents and children on a special film night in the school in February which was well attended by parents, children and other visitors to the school.

Primary 7s made and sold popcorn on the night as part of their Enterprise project.

Fraserburgh North School is hoping to have more Cinema nights in the future for the community.

The school was also delighted to receive a donation from Nisa this term. Mrs Khalid donated a generous amount of money to the school through the ‘Making a Difference Locally’ iniative. Mrs Khalid came to P6/7’s World Day of Prayer assembly on March 7 to present the money to Head Teacher Mrs Rosie. The money will be used to develop nurturing approaches in school and to improve resources in all the classrooms.
