Thank you!

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much for the gifts and cards I received this week. I feel very flattered by the thought put into them and I know they will all go to good use over the next two weeks!

You have all been very supportive and helpful in 2019 so I would also like to thank you for that. Primary 3 are a wonderful class, and totally deserve the break for all their hard work in school. I hope you all enjoy the winter break and I shall see you in 2020 for more!

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff 🙂

Hello everyone,

Tomorrow (18/12/19) is the last day you can buy a copy of the school Christmas CD! If you would like a copy, could your child bring £3 to Mr McGaff’s classroom before the end of the school day. A massive thank you to those who have already bought their copies!

Best wishes,

Mr McGaff

Friday 20th December is the last day of term and we will be walking down to the church at 9am. Children have to asked to bring in a donation of a non-perishable food item to take down to the church as this will be donated to the local food bank. If you would like to join us for the service and walk down with us, then please do not hesitate to contact me to let me know. We finish at the normal time of 12:25pm and pupils resume on Tuesday 7th January at 8:50am. 

The very talented Mr McGaff has been working very hard making a ‘Loanhead Christmas CD’ which includes songs from the P1/2 Nativity and the P3-7 Christmas concert. A letter has gone into school bags with more information about how to order this and the cost etc. Please fill this in and send it back in ASAP if you would like a copy of this.

I would just like to thank you all for your wonderful support this term and I look forward to working with you all in the new year. I wish you all a very fun and relaxing Christmas!

*Foodbank donations for our Friday church service*

After the success of our donations to the food bank last year for the church service, we have decided to organise the same again this year.  We ask that pupils bring a non perishable item for The Food Bank (January) with them to carry down to church on the last day of term.  Items in demand include:

P1 Homework 16/12/19 (CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS)

Hi all,

The final week of term is here! I have decided to not send home reading homework or book bags this week as I understand how busy you all are with the run up to Christmas and our week in school is equally busy.

I will however send home a festive phonics blending booklet this week if you wish to do any work over the Christmas holidays. This is entirely optional please don’t feel pressured to get it done and take the time to enjoy the holidays with your little ones.

Finally, we will attending church this Friday and are looking for any parents who are available to attend to help us on the walk down. If you are interested can you let me know at pick up or via e-mail at

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas when it comes and a Happy New Year,

Miss Ramsay
