Moffat Primary Talent Show 2020
Health Week and Sports Day
Last week Moffat Primary held their annual Health Week and Sports Day, only this year it was a bit different. Families came together and enjoyed lots of fun activities including garden obstacle courses, Banana Sushi making, Fish Flapping and some were even seen cloud watching as part of their relaxation activities. The week ended with our Sports Day with many families making Moffat banners and embracing the home event. Lots of fun was had by all in the races such as the pillowcase sack race and toilet roll race. It was a close contest throughout the four days but Dowding were our House champions this year. Well done everyone.
Thank you to the amazing Rookie Rockstars for working with our pupils to produce a fantastic concert Thursday 5th September. Congratulations to Ben Little who won the cd design competition; our Rookie Rockstars CDs have all had Ben's design on the front. And well done to Maizie Warwick P6 for picking her mum Janine to compete in the family rap - she won first place with a fabulous rap version of Baa Baa Black Sheep!!
Annandale and Eskdale Road Relay Competition
On 1st October 2019, Moffat Academy took four teams to complete in a district running competition. Each team was made up of three runners who each ran one mile. The P7 girls race was first, our girls gave their very best in a highly competitive race and finished in fourth position. The P7 boys had trained very hard on the lead up to this competition and took a commanding lead from the start and were able to extend their lead throughout. The boys ran with great commitment and determination to win the trophy by a considerable distance. The P6 boys were not to be out done, demonstrating a fantastic attitude throughout a very close race also winning their competition. The P6 girls was the closest race of the day with the first three teams finishing within just 3 seconds of each other. Unfortunately, Moffat just missed out on the gold medals and picked up bronze on the day. Congratulations to all of the Moffat teams who represented themselves and their school in a fantastic manner.
Moffat Academy results:
P6 Boys (Large Schools) 1st Place
P6 Girls (Large Schools) 3rd Place
P7 Boys (Large Schools) 1st Place
Primary classes took part in a 'Maths Trail' around Moffat 30th Sept-4th October looking at maths in our environment. Each class has produced an interactive maths board in the Primary corridor. Our Parent Council have acquired a grant to buy Maths board games for the pupils. It is hoped that the maths games can be used for further games afternoons or to run a maths game club after school and we are looking for interested parents to volunteer. Some parents have already been visiting to test out the games with pupils.

Moffat Primary were fortunate enough to receive a grant for £500 from Maths Week Scotland to purchase new resources for outdoor learning. These included a whole school set of Problem Solving Cards, Giant Glitter Mosaic Tiles, Number and Operation Cones, Maths Mats and Giant Foam Fractions. Throughout maths week classes enjoyed a number of mathematical themed activities from an Outdoor Learning Maths Club and Daily Maths Challenges to homework tasks and quizzes. The week concluded with a maths themed virtual assembly. Pupils and staff all agree that Maths Week is a great opportunity for pupils to broaden their experience of maths, and to use calculations and problem solving strategies in new and interesting contexts.
