Today some of the Primary 6’s came to help us with our profiles, helping us to write what we have been learning about this week. They then helped us to set targets for Literacy, Numeracy, Health & Wellbeing and a personal target for the term ahead. The children enjoy working together with their partner class and the Primary 6 children were very helpful and responsible!

ICT- education city

After our visit to the library we used the laptops to access education city. We remembered lots from our lesson with P6 in term 2. We worked with a partner to log in, search the internet and then log into education city. Today we explored all the activities available to us. Once we can log on confidently we will begin to use education city as extension tasks, during our numeracy and literacy jobs and for topic. Next week we will try some typing skills, discuss internet safety and search for some information!


Sharing our learning

We created a story booklet about the birth of Jesus! It took two days of writing to finish our books. We then shared our hard work with the primary 7’s. They were very im pressed with our writing and our reading skills.

Christmas party

The primary 2’s, 2/3’s and 3’s had great fun at their party on Monday afternoon. They danced, sang and played games

Christmas Jumper day and Lunch

Primary 2/3 were feeling very festive today for Christmas Jumper day! They particularly enjoyed opening their crackers, reading their jokes to each other and after lots of selloptape our party hats were on just in time for lunch! Lunch was served by all adults in the school along with some festive music and cheer! The children sat together for their turkey dinner or festive tattie and waited for all to finish before going to play! Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Show



The children loved performing to all the special visitors at the show yesterday. After learning all about the West Indies and their Christmas traditions, they made a coconut tree display for the hall- using lots of country flags and facts to decorate the tree. The song we sang was called the Calypso Carol. They should be very proud of their beautiful signing!

Christmas Enterprise

The children had great fun making head boppers to sell at the Christmas Fair ( although some headless turkeys didn’t quite make it to the table due to sever stickiness!). We bought our items  then worked out how much each pair cost.  After this we discussed how much we should sell them for to ensure we made a profit. The children decided to sell them for £1 – therefore making 51p profit per item. We managed to sell all bops within 24 minutes and made over £20 in profit! 

Library Opening day!

We were very excited to visit the brand new library on its opening day! We watched it being opened by Mrs Duthie, the oldest and youngest child in the school and the Library pupil voice group.  We were shown how to use it properly by Mrs Duthie and then got a chance to explore. Next we moved next door where we got to take home a free book or DVD and received our free book bags. These were full of new books, games and resources to use at home. On the way back to class we went on a hunt to identify the teachers hiding behind their favourite books. The pictures were hard to find and work out but it was lots of fun! When we went back to class we created bookmarks for using in the library, explored our book bags and used our story cubes to retell stories to our friends. At 2 o’clock a bell rang and we all stopped what we were doing and Miss Munro read us a story from the new library.  It was a great day!
