P7B start the year off as they mean to go on!

2 days in, and already there has been loads crammed in for P7B!

We played ‘Zoom Out’ which finally revealed our Class Novel and brought out a tonne of brilliant predictions, wonders and justifications.

We have played numeracy games, written headlines and started some art.

We are also working so hard on our ‘Wonderful Walking’ to be a good example to the rest of the school. Today alone, we got 7 compliments from other members of staff, so it must be working!

We also made predictions and confidently announced them as we put them in the tin to be revealed again after the novel. Which prediction will be closest once it is opened again after the novel is complete?

P7 say goodbye at assembly – ‘Someone You Taught’ Leavers Song

P7 say goodbye at assembly – ‘Someone You Taught’ Leavers Song

This morning was an excellent celebration of Primary 7 moving on from Pinkie. The assembly got amazing reviews! Each and every child contributed brilliantly and they should all be proud of themselves and each other.

Watch the video above which has our brilliant recording of the song written and recorded by P7!

Thank you Primary 7, you will be missed!


P7 – ‘Pinkie Does Tough Mudder’

Yesterday was a wet and wonderful afternoon as the P7’s took on a course set up specially for them following their fantastic fundraising efforts. Well done and thank you to those who donated, as we have raised over £800 and counting from sponsorships!

The course had a soggy crawl under tarpaulin, several planks to clamber up, a terrifying looking spiders web, ropes to crawl under whilst being splashed with sponges (or just poured on with buckets!) and lots of different team exercises.

We are delighted to say that every pupil managed to complete the course, but even more importantly, the pupils displayed such great spirit of resilience, support and fun!

It was a definitely a day to feel #ProudToBePinkie !!!

Check out the photos in the gallery for a flavour of the afternoon.

#proudtobepinkie at Meadowmill

26 pupils spent the day at Meadowmill representing Pinkie at the annual athletics event. The whole team represented the school brilliantly, with lots of encouragement for team mates, every individual trying their hardest and a fun spirit throughout the day.

It was a very blustery day which meant running the top bend of the track was extremely tricky…. This didn’t stop the relay teams though, with all four P6 and 7 teams getting the baton around slickly, and two making it through to the final. A very big well done to the P7 boys who were in  a photo finish for third in the final, and the girls who grabbed second place in their P6 final! A special shout out to Jack, who took away a medal after winning the throwing event!

Well done team, we are very proud!
