A trip to East Links for the Morning Nursery class!

We had a great time at East Links. There was so much to do. First we had a walk through the maze; it was pretty tricky finding our way out. We fed the animals, went on the go- karts, had a ride on the train and had fun in the play park. Hope you enjoy these photos!










We hope you enjoyed the day!

It was great to see the children having so much fun.

We have more photos in the nursery – please ask to see them!

The nursery went to Vogrie.


The afternoon nursery class had their summer trip to Vogrie today. The weather was fabulous. We walked through the woods, found tadpoles in the pond, played in the park, had parachute games and a treasure hunt…

We were all tired but happy on the bus home. The nursery staff want to thank all the children and their mums and dads for making it such a great day!

Nursery and P1 buddies

The P1 children enjoyed meeting their buddies from the nursery on Tuesday morning. The children spent some time chatting about favourite animals and pets. Primary 1 then sang a song in French about greeting a friend and the nursery children were delighted to join in. The next time they meet will be at playtime on Wednesday 10th June at the move up day.buddies 001 buddies 002 buddies 003 buddies 004 buddies 005

Walk to School Week

Walk to School Week begins next week on Tuesday 19th May until Friday 22nd.

Get involved in Happy Shoesday on Tuesday 19th May. This Walk to School Week, Living Streets are encouraging schools all over the UK to take part in Happy Shoesday. A day dedicated to wearing the shoes that make you the happiest – shiny, decorated, red, cartoon, gorilla feet… whatever brings that smile on the walk to school.

We’re all hoping for a warm, bright Happy Shoesday, so on Tuesday morning, all classes will be invited to join in a school conga around the playground to show off the shoes that make them the happiest. Let’s have fun walking!

We look forward to seeing everyone at either of the two meeting points at 8.30am  to walk to school with family and friends.

Meeting Points: Macmerry Bowling Club Capark or McIntyre Lane

We like to move it, move it!

In Primary 2 we have been learning a jungle dance to the song ‘I like to move it’ from the film Madagascar. We have worked really hard to include lots of different moves. Can you spot all of the different elephants, monkeys, snakes and tigers? We hope you enjoy our dance as much as we enjoy performing it!

Aiming high at Macmerry!
