While our building is closed we continue to develop ways to keep our connections with one another strong. Collaborating in our virtual classroom has been a key approach to maintaining our links with one another. Our next step is to make use of Google Meet. Each class will have their first meeting next week. (Week beginning 25.5.20)
We want this to be a positive, happy experience for all. Please see the guidance issued today.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Getting ready for Google Meet
A group of P7s are participating in the Bikeability 1 course at the moment and we are happy that we can offer this to the P6s next term too.
We’d love to be able to offer Bikeability 2 course to our P7s and to do that we need a couple more trained volunteers.
Are you interested?
If you are please leave your details for Shona Blakely at the school office.
Possible training dates have already been identified and you can say which would suit you best on this doodle poll

An enthusiastic group of parents and families are busy chopping, pruning, planting, sweeping and painting in our playground today. They have made great progress already and the playground is looking more ready for autumn and winter. A few mini-beasts have been spotted and we wondered if anyone knew what this caterpillar might become?

It was wonderful to see so many of our families in school last night. The school was buzzing with excited children eager to introduce their families to their teacher and share the spaces that they come to learn in every day. It was a lovely, informal opportunity to meet with everyone and take time to look at the displays and resources. The staff team hope you found it as valuable and worthwhile as we did.
