Well done to all the children who earned their Reading is Braw lanyards today! They achieved their targets of reading for 5 weeks and are ready to work towards their next target!
Primary Seven decided to work as a team to run a half marathon as part of their fundraising for this year!
We were so enthusiastic that we decided to run a full marathon through working together. When each child’s laps were counted and added to each others, we realised that we nearly ran two full marathons by working together!
We especially enjoyed our Luca’s ice cream when we finished as we all ran at least one mile!

Today, Primary Seven visited the Primary One classes during their Buddy time. The children read stories together and looked at their learning stories.
It was great to see the Primary One children settled in their classrooms! 🙂

Primary 4 recently visited the Water of Leith in Edinburgh. They had a great day!

Last term, we studied the topic of Scotland. We focussed on the Battle of Bannockburn, Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. We enjoyed making mini Jacobites!
We went on different trips too! It was fun to take part in an Athletics Festival and a Badminton fun day! Each week, we have also been swimming at Musselburgh Sports Centre.
We have also enjoyed creating and performing our assemblies. These were about Bonnie Prince Charlie, France and World Prayer Day, and New Beginnings at Springtime. This helped us to develop as confident indivduals as we all felt eager to perform and take part in activities that helped them to be a success! Our next assembly will be about celebrating success in school 🙂
Children in Primary Four have been working very hard in preparation for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday 28th April. They have been learning about the importance of their sacramental initiation into the Church family.
Good luck on Sunday!
