All the boys and girls have had a great time doing bikeability over the last couple of weeks.  A big thank you to all the volunteers and staff who have helped out so far!

We are looking forward to our final week next Tuesday.

School trip to the Botanics


We all had an absolutely fantastic time at the Botanics last Thursday. The children were a credit to the school and were really interested in learning about the Rainforest.

Pupil Group Newsletter

APRIL 2019

Eco group newsletter

We are the Stenton Eco group. This year we are planning to do:

  • Circuit training twice a week instead of the run a mile.
  • We are going to set up a drinking water challenge to encourage all the children in the school to drink more water to stay healthy.
  • We are planning to tidy up our school garden with help from the other children and ask parents to come in and help.
  • We are going to organise a litter pick every Wednesday break time


Captain Rights Newsletter

We are the Captain Rights Pupil Group. We are trying to help our school to become a Rights Respecting School. There are 3 levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. We are trying to get the bronze award by the end of this year. To do that we have done a questionnaire to get everybody’s thoughts about the school. We have done one for staff and some parents and we have also done one for the children. We are also making an action plan to say what we are going to do next. We will let you know when we have got our bronze.

Spelling Bee

Our pupils took part in our School Spelling Bee this morning. Everyone did really well and it was very close! Well done to everyone for their hard work.

Hill Walking with Outdoor Education

On Tuesday this week, we (Primary 5&6) joined Innerwick P6 pupils for a hill walk with Mrs Tannahill and Andy Duff from Outdoor Education. We walked from Whiteadder reservoir to the top of Spartleton. On the way, we spotted various wildlife (including loads and loads of toads!)and birds and stopped at the top for a picnic. We had a great day and today we are all aching!

World Book Day

We all had a brilliant World Book Day celebration yesterday! Thank you so much to the Pupil Council for organising lots of great activities.


Lots of the children took part in our book cover competition. Mr Taylor had a hard time judging the winners.


We began to create our story tree to display our favourite book characters in our reading corner.

The boys and girls enjoyed listening to a story read by local community member Phil who kindly came in read to us in the morning.

The children all looked super in their costumes and they inspired lots of fantastic imaginative play. The pupil council organised some fun activities for us to take part in during the afternoon.

Assault Course Fun!

The Stenton boys and girls worked really well together today using their creativity to make their own assault course for their peers to try.  I was impressed by their innovation and how they managed to encourage the people using their assault course to make some choices of their own whilst also following instructions.
