Visiting Musselburgh Library

P5L Visiting Musselburgh Library on PhotoPeach
P5L visited Musselburgh Library for the first time this academic session this afternoon. They met the new librarian Drew who read them some hilarious poems to get them in the mood for National Poetry Day next week. Afterwards they spent time browsing for new AR books and looking for awesome facts about their current IDL Topic, Natural and Man-Made Disasters. It was a book-filled afternoon of fun and we would like to extend our thanks to the parents and carers who volunteered to accompany us today. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

What did you learn in school today?

Posted by: | September 13, 2017 | No Comment |

At our recent assemblies we launched our focus on Metacognition.
Over the coming weeks we will be finding out more about how we can become better learners by understanding how we learn and what strategies we can use to plan, monitor and evaluate our learning.

Our first step is to ensure we use the language of learning.

We want to become skilled at describing our learning – not just the task we did.
To help us, we have a chart of some common learning vocabulary. Please encourage us to use the words on the sheets when we share with you what we have been doing in school.
The aim is that this becomes second nature and that we have the words to help us plan, monitor and evaluate or learning effectively.

Our Learning Vocabulary:


Primary 1

Primary 2- Primary 4

Primary 5-Primary7

You don’t have to just use the one for your class – why not explore the others!

National survey on the expansion of free early learning and childcare in Scotland

Posted by: | September 6, 2017 Comments Off on National survey on the expansion of free early learning and childcare in Scotland |

As you’ll be aware the Scottish Government is planning to nearly double the hours of free early learning and childcare by 2020. Because the views of parents and carers are crucial for the success of this expansion, the Government has commissioned independent researchers to undertake a survey of parents. It is now asking for your help in sharing the survey link (www.bit.ly/elc-survey) with as many parents of 0-5 year old children in your community as possible.


All parents taking part will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw and have the chance to win one of 10 x GBP100 cash prizes.


The survey is carried out for the Scottish Government by Craigforth, an independent research company. If you have any questions about this survey please send a message to: survey@craigforth.co.uk
