Sports Day

This week was our sports day, the whole school went down to the green and participated in a number of sports. We also took part in running races, sack races, golf ball and spoon and long distance races. Every house worked together as a team and by 5 points Ruthven were the winning team and won the cup. Well done Ruthven, well done everyone.

Last Friday p6/7 went to Dalkieth  for an orienteering competition. Although our school has not had as much practice in the sport as some of the schools there, all the children did there best to put in the maximum effort, but the most important thing to remember is to try to have fun and do your best and in the end we came sixth against all the top schools our best time was 17 mins 58secs. Well done everyone!

P1/2 Learning Log

John: ‘This week we made the 3 Little Pig’s Houses out of wood, straw and brick.  I found the wood quite easy but the straw was quite hard to work with because it was blowing away and was hard to stick to the glue but I persevered and got there in the end.  The brick was easy because we used sponge to dab the bricks .’   Art

Sports Day – Thursday June 9th @10am


on the Village Green

We aim to begin Sports Day at 10am tomorrow on the Village Green.   Children should come dressed in sportswear ready to begin but the forecast is for changeable weather, so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately – if warm, suncream should be applied before your child comes to school.  If your child has a sun hat, it would be sensible to bring it to school.  Please also ensure that your child brings bottled water so they can keep hydrated during the course of the morning. Our sports day should be finished for lunchtime.

If you are able, come along and support your children and school at Sports Day.
