Netball After School Club

Posted on

Castleview Primary School Netball team has been meeting every Monday after school. They have been enjoying learning new skills, playing as part of a team and playing games against children from other schools.

They had great fun last Monday playing in a friendly mini tournament. They worked well as a team and show good sportsmanship.

If you are in P5-7 and would like to join the netball club then please see Miss Whitefield or Miss Carter for a letter. 


P7 Halloween Disco

Primary 7 had great fun at the halloween disco. They enjoyed playing games and dancing to the spooky music. The children all dunked for apples, pinned the wart on the witches nose, fished for ducks and enjoyed eating the healthy scary food.


Primary 4 Built a Roman Road

Posted on Updated on

Primary 4 had great fun learning about how the Romans built their roads. After they learnt about the different layers and the materials that were used, it was time to build their own Roman Roads.

The children used various healthy foods to construct their road. They used grapes as the large rocks of the foundations, muesli as the small stones and pebbles used to fill in the gaps. Natural yoghurt and raisins as the concrete with broken stones and tiles then finally sliced apple as the cobble stones on top.

“This is Roman Triffle!” Nikolaos

“It smells delicious!” Jude

“It smells Romanlicious!” Aaron

“It tastes like weetabix mixed with grapes” Maddi

“It tastes like paradise!” Adan

“We learned how to make great food.” Kebba

“We learnt how to have a healthy diet and in a fun way how to build a Roman road.” Nikolaos

“We made the layers of food to see how the Romans built the roads.” Ali
