The Sandaig blogs have been running since 2004, it is now time to move to a newer system for the schools blogging. We have installed wordpress and are going to use that for most of the blogging at Sandaig from now on.

The new blog address is:
Where you will find the sort of posts you use to find on the old Sandaig otter's blog, the poetry blog, Sandaig TV and all the other blogs. The only exceptions are the Head Teacher's blog, which is staying right were it is: HT News and the Eco blog which will move to http://www.sandaigprimary.co.uk/eco.
If you link to the Sandaig blogs you may like to update your links. The older blogs will stay here for reference but comments will be closed in the near future.

Primary 6 sj have been writing lunes inspired by the Sandaig Garden. A lune is a simple form of poem with 3 words in the first line, 5 in the second and 3 in the last. We decorated the garden paving slabs with the poems, took photos, recorded our voices and made this movie.

Yesterday the primary sixes went to the Bridge. There they met the primary sixes from St. Stephen's primary and had a great time. I took quite a few photos and some wee videos with a digital camera. The children were too busy to take many photos but they took a few. This afternoon we made some comics about the trip and Kris, Robert, Courtney, Charlene, Jamie, Melissa, Nicole, Shaun and Stephen edited the video. This is it, make sure you watch to the end to see some great break dancing.

Hopefully there will some written reports post to Sandaig Otters and the Primary Six SJ blogs tomorrow.

Primary six and some of primary 5 helped the Fischy folk to teach lots of great songs to the whole school.
A team from primary 6 filmed the whole process and groups of primary six edited the video.

Back in 2005 to celebrate Chinese New Year on February 9th P3M made lion masks and learnt a special lion dance.

P3N made a dragon costume for three people and practiced a dance accompanied by Chinese style music using drums and cymbals.
Both dances were performed at the whole school assembly that Miss Murdoch and Miss Neilson gave about traditional Chinese New Year celebrations and customs. Everyone enjoyed them immensely. Chinese people do lion dances at New Year because they believe it scares away any evil spirits or bad luck. This means they will have good luck for the coming year.
According to the Chinese calendar 2005 is the year of the rooster. Anyone born in this year is believed to be a pioneer in spirit. They are devoted to work and quest after knowledge.

Happy Chinese New Year!

The video was filmed and Edited by Emma, Lauren and Steven from Primary Six
