P6 Homework and Update W/B 8th October 2018

Hi all,

Last week was very busy with sporting events and our class assembly. Many congratulations to our P6/7 cross country team who came fourth overall and in particular, to two P6 boys WL and LR who narrowly missed out on 2nd place but gallantly ran across the line together to secure joint third. I believe each race had about 80 competitors or more. Also, a superb run from a P6 girl, ZM to secure fifth place, again out of a large field.

On Thursday, the boys enjoyed six short games of football in their tournament and I believe won 4 out of 6 so huge congratulations to them. Girls, it’s your turn this week, on Thursday afternoon!

Events this week:

Monday*RUGBY* – I think this is the final week so huge thanks go to Bradley from LRC for his wonderful coaching.

Wednesday – Parents Evening from 17:30 onwards.

Thursday – Parents Afternoon from 15:30 onwards.

Girl’s Football Festival


FridayWorld Porridge Day in aid of Mary’s MealsWorld Porridge Day is actually on Wednesday but we have signed up for our porridge party, in association with local company STOATS, for Friday. This will not only raise  funds and awareness for Mary’s Meals but  also means extra  fun on our last day before the October break.

Children get to help make a bowl of porridge, then decorate this with healthy toppings to make a smiling face. Photos will be taken of this. We ask for a small donation ( £2 is the suggested amount but whatever you can afford would be appreciated) It  might be an idea for children ( who like porridge!) to either have a smaller breakfast or snack that day.

Here is a link for more info. I see that it has a ‘text £2 ‘  option so you could do that or bring  a donation on the day. Many, many thanks!



Spelling – continues as normal

Reading – We will be doing reading comprehension in class this week so no reading homework as such, other than to remind children to try and read 2o minutes a day, texts of their choice.

Numeracy – no homework this week. Congratulations to those who participate in the weekly Sumdog challenges. I am keeping a table of results of who is in the top 10 each week.

FridayEND OF TERM @ 12:25pm. Wishing P6 a super fun and safe October break. All back on Tuesday 23rd October, bright and breezy, ready to board the Learning Train again! Choo choo!

Eco Committee News #1 September 2018

ECO COMMITTEE NEWS  14th September 2018

 Welcome to our new Eco Committee, made up of pupils from P1-7, plus three teachers.

We’ve just held our first meeting and realize that we have a huge amount to do within school to improve our surroundings and live a more ‘green’ life.

Children these days are very clued up on environmental issues which is so heartening to see. The number one menace, that every single pupil cited, is litter in the playground. So, our first jobs are to source new litter pickers; complete a litter survey of the grounds and see where best to place bins; organise litter picking rotas across all classes; contact the Council to see if we could have bins with flaps to stop birds/wind taking litter out!

We’re also going to put new collection points for plastic bottles in each class and in the dining hall to ensure as much recycling is done as possible. We’ll create teams of helpers to help empty these bins along with the paper recycling bags each Friday.


Future projects include –

  • Investigating solutions to the milk cartons and straws issue
  • Reducing use of plastic (and disposable items) within school and dining hall
  • Checking that electrical items are switched off when not in use
  • Setting up a used school uniform rail
  • Growing fruit and veg
  • Fundraising for the Eco Committee
  • Presenting at Assemblies


As you can see, there’s so much to do but with our amazing team, we can do it!

‘Individually we are one drop, but together we are an ocean!’

 Go Eco Team Power !

Thanks for reading,

Miss Brunt, Mrs Watts and Miss Maley



An end of term thank you from Mrs Hinton

I want to say a huge thank you to all my P7s and their parents for my amazingly thoughtful gifts, cards and kind words. It has been a whirlwind few weeks of madness but they got there and have done so well. They all hold a special place in my heart and I wish you happy, safe and healthy holidays. Remember to say “hello” when you see me in the street and I look forward to hearing about your high school adventures.

Remember to take risks in your learning, be kind, be a friend, look out for each other and always have good manners. Your deeds are your monuments.

Much love,

Mrs H x

Primary 3 Homework – 19th to 25th June

This week we are working hard getting ready for our assembly on Friday. If you are free to come along, the parents’ showing is at 11:45am.

As we approach the end of term, please can I ask everyone to look at home for reading books or library books? There will be 50 bonus house points for each book returned.

Because of all the work for assembly I will only set reading homework for this week. The pages to read for Thursday and next Monday will be marked on grids as usual.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan
