1.do not hesitate

2.form a calm line at your class room door.

3.always stay with your class teacher.

Queensferry Post – A Burns shout out

A shout out!

Hi everyone, we’d like to give a quick shout out to the Burn’s finalists and semi-finalists. Well done to all of you. It can be very hard to pronounce some Scots words, so you should be very proud of yourselves. Plus, a very well done to the rest of the school who said a poem or performed for Burns day. Soon there will be an interview here with Georgina Bark the p6-7 winner so remember to come back and have a look. Thank You Again.

Queensferry Post -Newspaper Club

Hello, I’m Robyn Corbett and I would like to tell you about newspaper club. Newspaper club is on Wednesdays at lunch time in Mr Lynch’s classroom. Pupils from P6 and P7 write stories about what’s going on in Queensferry primary school and then post them on our website – just like the one you are reading right now! If you would like to share your ideas all you have to do is, ask Mr Lynch or someone in your class that already goes and then you can tell us your idea it’s as easy as that so just come along and tell us if you have anything to share.
