Welcome to our blog

Welcome to our school blog. This online space will help us to share our learning with parents, carers and the wider world and will contain weblinks to support learning. Much of the content will be created by the pupils themselves, as they develop their digital skills and learn about staying safe online. We hope you enjoy finding out about what we get up to in school. Please check back often and leave us a comment.

Staying Active

We have had some lovely weather the last few weeks and that’s certainly helped lots of you get outside for your daily activity. Here are some ideas for activities to try at home if the weather isn’t so great, with materials which are readily available.

Remember, Early Level is generally Nursery and Primary 1, First Level is Primary 2 to Primary 4 and Second Level is usually Primary 5 to Primary 7. Let us know in the comments if you try any of the suggestions.

The first resource was produced by the Scottish Association of Teachers of Physical Education. (Some of the activities are not suitable for our current lockdown situation, as they were produced for Home Learning under normal conditions. )

As always, for any of these resources, make sure that you warm up correctly, choose a task within your own fitness level and are working in a safe space.


The second set of resources were created by the Youth Sport Trust. Let us know in the comments if you try any of the challenges.

This final set are fun activities gathered from various places- remember to check with an adult before trying any of the activities- especially Couch Island. šŸ™‚

Home school

I think doing school at home is kind of fun. Although I do miss my friends and I get distracted easily. I am getting as much work done as I can.

World Book Day

Primary 1-3 enjoyed lots of learning linked to World Book Day including a story at assembly, reading with friends, a library treasure hunt and talking about their favourite books. We then did a ‘book swap’ and got an opportunity to read our friend’s Ā favourite books. A surprise at the end of the day was the highlight! Better late than never! šŸ˜€

Symmetry and Snowflakes

P1-3 were learning about symmetry by creating their own patterns. We spoke about lines of symmetry and all children were able to identify at least one line of symmetry if not more.
