P7s are gearing up for their final fundraising push this year with a Cake and Candy stall on Friday 15th.

Any donations of cake would be gratefully received!

If your child would like to buy anything on Friday, please make sure they bring their money.  Everything will be priced at 20p, 50p or £1.  If possible, please try to bring change as we will have a very limited float.


P7 Engineering Success

P7A and P7B were researching engineering last term, finding out about famous Scottish engineers, speaking to a structural engineer from the University of Edinburgh and taking part in the Primary Engineer Young Leader Award.  They had to design an engineering solution to an everyday problem and then write a letter to explain how it works and why it is important.

Out of the 15,000 entries in Scotland, we are very proud to announce that one of our pupils was shortlisted!  Well done to Aaron H in P7A!

His invention design will go on show with all the other shortlisted entries in Glasgow on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June at the Barony Hall.  Click here for more information.

Tam O’Shanter

P5, P6 and P7 were treated to a performance of Tam O’Shanter today as part of their Scottish topic. Craig visited the school and talked to us about the origins of the poem and then he acted it out, making us laugh and jump.  We learned a lot about how to perform and make a poem come to life as well as a bit about life in the time of Robert Burns and the story of the poem.

P5-7 Christmas Show

P5-7’s Christmas show will start at 2 pm on Monday and Tuesday. Doors will be open at 1.45. Please note the change of time.

After our performances we are welcoming parents up to our classrooms to showcase some of our learning.  Some classes have made some Christmas  items and will be selling them for a small donation.

Showcase days:

Monday – P7a, P7b, P6b ONLY

Tuesday – P6a, P5a, P5b ONLY

Christmas Jumper Day Friday 15th December

On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.

We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.

And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.

We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.

With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
