P7 info

Please refer to the letter handed out this week for important term dates and trip info.

Please note that the Eden Rock trip requires you to fill out their form online or pupils cannot go. Details on teip ketter and my class newsletter. Bus fairs required for Toby Carvery so parent pay is not being used. Thanks


Payment should be made to the school before 2nd May.

You are able to order online quickly and should receive free delivery of prints back to the school.

When ordering online please follow this link : https://horizonorder.com/collections/group-photographs/products/12-x-8-inch-a4-group-photograph

You should then write the name of the group photograph when asked e.g. Primary 7 group, Nursery am Group etc.

The unique order code for the school is : LHPS8019

If you have lost the order form, handed out in the last week of term, you will still be able to order following the steps above and have them promptly delivered to school.

Primary 3 Homework – First Week Back

Primary 3 Homework – 18th to 24th April

It was great to have P3 back yesterday, all ready for the new term!

We started our new topic looking at houses and homes. As part of this, would anyone be free to help on Wednesday or Thursday next week? We want to walk round Loanhead, spotting some of the things we’ve been learning about. Please let me know if you or another relative / carer could come with us. It would be from 2pm to 3pm (so just before normal pick up time) on either on Wednesday 25th or Thursday 26th.

This term I will teach P3 on Mondays as well as the rest of the week. Mrs Wallace will be with other classes. Homework will continue to run Tuesday to Tuesday. Our regular P.E. days will be Tuesday and Wednesday, with music on a Monday.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan



After the Easter break our maths brains will need a bit of warming up. Number bonds tennis (to 10) is important practice, as are Learnits and the +/- games.

I have also put up a SumDog challenge covering lots of different skills and areas.



Reading grids will come home today. Please look out also for comprehension quizzes to be finished.



We have been learning about all the different kinds of buildings that people live in. In particular, we have focussed on flats, cottages, detached houses, semi-detached, terraced houses and bungalows.

For homework, can you describe your own home using words and pictures?


Spelling – Please could we practice the following words and then use them in some sentences:

ladder              bungalow

painting           cottage

turned             terraced

detached         each

Share your Community News

As part of assembly this week the House Captains have decided that they want to celebrate Extra Curricular achievements of pupils in their houses.

Have you won something? Done something that you proud of? Moved up a level? Joined a new club? Learned to play an instrument?

Pupils have shared their news with house captains but will be recognized in assembly on Friday.  If parents have any news or photos of pupils in action or with any awards then we would love to include these in our PowerPoint.  Please send to The House Captains via Mrs Hinton k.hinton@mgfl.net (before Friday 10am please)



P1 Homework 17/04/18

Welcome back – I hope you all had a lovely spring break.

This week I will not be giving out reading books as it is such a short week with our outdoor learning on Wednesday. Instead I will be sending home a list of phonic words that children should initially sound out if they are stuck with them and then be able to read them instantly without sounding out. These are short words that can be easily sounded out. Please cut up the list to help them learn them – you can do a few each night, you do not need to do them all every night.

Wednesday 18th April: We are having another outdoor learning session, this time to the beach. If you have not returned the permission form please do so. REMINDER: Children will need wellies, comfortable clothing, waterproof jacket and trousers if possible, sun cream, sunhat, packed lunch (if not ordered from school), change of clothes, water and a snack.

Our topics this term will be ‘Our Senses’ and ‘People who Help Us’

It will be a busy term….I can’t believe we are in the final term already!
