Pinkie Bear – P7 Fundraiser

As most of you will know, we have had a new pupil join us in P7 this term.  He goes by the name of ‘Pinkie Bear’ and has helped P7B in their writing. We are looking to find a loving and caring home for Pinkie Bear as the P7s will soon be leaving.  In order to help us have a fantastic end of term celebration we are running a Guess the Bear’s birthday throughout the school.  We still have lots of dates available so if you would like the chance of winning Pinkie Bear, please help us raise some funds for our outing.

As it is our last week, we are offering 2 guesses for £1!!

Winner will be announced on Friday!

We really appreciate it,


P.S Pinkie Bear has been helping around the school, check out our pictures!




By today, all parents/guardians should have now received a letter from their child in P7B as a taster into our WW2 topic.

We would like to invite you into our WW2 Museum on Thursday 4th February at 2.00 – 3.20.

We are hoping to provide you with some WW2 snacks and entertainment and you are welcome to explore our learning as we share our progress with you.

We have worked really hard this term and would love to see you.

Curriculum Day

P7B have recently been looking at Curriculum for Excellence and the part it plays in our education.

Most of us had heard of it but weren’t all too confident in explaining its purpose.

We discussed why we thought it was important to come to school, why we learn the things we do, how we develop as learners and how this influences us out of school.

We also then had a look at ‘getting that dream job’ and created ‘pathways to success’ explaining each stage from P1 – employment and we are continuing this for our homework this week.

We have put together a video explaining our views on Why do YOU come to school? So please have a watch and leave your comments.
