P1 have been very busy working on their growth and change topic. Today we were learning about the life cycle of a seed. We learnt the sequence for planting a seed and then we went outdoors to plant our own seeds. We will be taking care of them in class, we know they will need light and water to help them grow. We also have some guests in class at the moment we have some caterpillars and some ladybird larvae. We have been observing them and making detailed notes and drawings of them in our journals. We shall be observing them over the next few weeks to see what changes occur. Keir brought in a carrot which he had grown at home for his show and tell this week, we were very impressed.
The Big Pedal is a giant inter-school cycling and scooting competition that encourages children, teachers and parents to choose two wheels for their school journeys.
This year’s competition will span 10 school days, from 3 to 14 March, and the more children who scoot and cycle each day, the more points the school will earn. Schools right across the UK will be competing against each other, and the competition is weighted according to the size of the school, so everyone has a fair chance to win.
Please encourage your child to cycle or scoot to school as much as possible over the next two weeks.
All of the children in every class from Nursery to P7, turned their frosty fingers into green fingers today in a whole school tidy up for Winter. From picking up litter and weeds, to planting bulbs for Spring, everyone worked as a team to maintain our wonderful school grounds. Appreciation to all of the parents who wrapped up too and came to lend a hand. They also turned their frosty fingers into green fingers! Thank you!

The P7 Fairtrade reps, eagerly prepared, delivered and distributed the annual Fairtrade Traidcraft catalogue today to P4 – P7 families in the school. As we are trying to further improve our good name of being an Eco School, this year we are “recycling” our catalogues by delivering them to families in P1 – P3 and Nursery later in the term, once we have had the first batch of orders and catalogues returned.

A huge thank you to three of our lovely mums who came to clear our planters today so that they can be repaired and planted up again!

They loved them so much that they danced for joy at our daily whole school “Stop For Dance”, for which the pupils chose their own music, to take a step towards good health!
