We have LOVED our minibeast topic in P2! Throughout the topic we have done lots of fun and interesting activities such as a minibeast hunt, investigation of micro-habitats, butterfly collages in art (using natural materials sourced from the playground), research posters and, to round the topic off, we shared our learning with the rest of the school at assembly. Enjoy these lovely photographs of the children hard at work 🙂

IRONKIDS Scotland 2018
Entries Open Now for a global running event for kids from 3 to 14 of all abilities
IRONKIDS Scotland is a series of three fun and family-focused running events for young people aged 3 to 14 of all abilities. The new running events being staged on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 June 2018 in Midlothian, East Lothian and Edinburgh are an exciting addition to the IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh race weekend and part of the global IRONKIDS running series. They are also a key part of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 celebrations.
Organisers are inviting young people to sign up to race at one of the venues and enjoy the running, the challenge, the competition and the camaraderie with their friends, as well as the family entertainment and sports taster sessions that will be laid on.
The IRONKIDS Scotland events have a firm focus on participation for all with age group races of between 500m and 2km. Each event will incorporate a strong family element with spectator friendly courses, free live entertainment, activities and sports taster sessions, whilst at the same time inspiring children to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

P2 worked extremely hard to plan and prepare a café for their families. They did it all… planned the menu, designed the menu, made the food, set up the café AND served the food!
I am extremely proud of how well you all did and you should be very proud of yourselves too for all of the hard work that you put in. The café was a wonderful success with lots of money raised for Save the Children.
Well done P2 and a big thank you to our customers for their extremely generous donations!
Miss Dixon 🙂
P5 have had a great first day at camp! All happy and well!!
