P.E: Tuesday and Thursday – please come dressed for P.E and bring a water bottle for hydration.

Mandarin on Wednesday with Ms Sun.

Assembly on Friday at 11am.

Please remember that children are expected to bring their Chromebook into school every day and it has to be charged at home.

P5 Week Beginning 25/04/22

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you have all had a restful and healthy Easter break. I’m sure the children were ready for it.

This week:

Reading – please see your child’s reading book as usual.

Spelling – please see spelling jotter.

Individual Presentation – more information about this will be posted in Google Classroom.

Numeracy – As usual please continue to work on rapid recall of times tables to develop a secure knowledge of this.

As this is the week before we go to camp, I will be chatting to the children  about all the arrangements during this week. I will share any information on Google Classroom so please ask your child about this.

As always please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,

Lisa Cumming     l.cumming@midlothian.education

UKRAINE APPEAL This week (until 6.4.22) we are collecting teddies and cuddly toys in good condition, these will go to the ‘Teddy Bear Trust’ who will distribute these to Ukrainian children.

This week homework is only reading and continuing to learn their times tables.

Monday- Mandarin has moved from Wednesday to Monday just for this week. P.E as usual.

Wednesday P.E. as usual

I hope you all have a lovely Easter break and look forward to seeing you all on April 25th.

P7 Info W/B Monday 4th April 2022

Hi all,

I hope everyone has had a restful weekend to recover after camp! What an amazing experience it was. I have compiled several Google Slides files of photos which will be available to view on Monday morning in Google Classroom. Children will also create digital blogs this week to capture those memories.

🎽 PE  – Tuesday and Thursday – please come to school dressed for PE outdoors. Remember to bring a water bottle for hydration. 

🏠Homework : There is no formal homework this week although children may add to their blogs at home if they so wish. 

🎸Mr Forbes – Mr F will continue to rehearse the P7 song with the class this week. Very sadly, this is his final week with us. He really has made a very positive impact on everyone in school and we will miss him greatly when he goes. However…we hope that he will come back and play the guitar for us when it is time to share the P7 song with you all, towards the end of next term. 🤞🤞🤞

🐣🥕Easter Activities – Towards the end of this week there will be some Easter activity fun and an assembly with Mr Duffin on Friday.

Also on Friday, straight after school, there will be an Easter Fair in the MUGA  organised by the Parent Council (12:25 to 2pm).


👉Finally, term ends on Friday 8th and re-opens to all on Monday 25th April.

Have a superb break everyone!

That’s all for now,


Thank you,

Miss Brunt

P3 Homework – 29.3.33

Hi everyone,

Homework –

Homework will go out on a Tuesday and be returned the following Monday. This is to accommodate families who have parents working long hours and children with extracurricular activities. If you wish to still hand in Friday that isn’t a problem.


Spelling words have been glued into the children’s jotters. Please remember to practise the words AND write the sentences unless this has been discussed with me previously. Remember the third column is optional.

Spelling focus for each group:

Ravenclaw – long o –  oa and o-e and ow revision.

As Ravenclaw are the only group with spelling words I have agreed a trade off that work can be done on chrome books and either sent to me electronically or printed and stuck into books. If your child still wishes to handwrite that is ok too.

Gryffindor, Slytherin and Hufflepuff  are all in a check up week therefore have no spelling words. If you wish to do some additional work please revise any spelling patterns previously taught.  There is no formal homework set.
