Sumdog Contest running from 3 Apr 2020 to 9 Apr 2020.

Time for a Sumdog Competition, are you ready? 

The contest runs from 8am Friday the 3rd  to 8pm the following Thursday the 9th – but you can play at any time during this period.


All you need to do is sign in and play Math games.

Easy? Fun? Indeed! 


Its a good idea to have a few sessions on Sumdog for around 20 to 30 minutes in the next few days before to get used the layout and also the games. 


Any questions comment below and we shall get back to you as soon as we can.


and finally…

Hello Boys and Girls (and parents!)  I hope everyone is keeping well and looking after each other at home.  We are now at the end of our first week of school closure and I know the teachers and your parents have been working hard to help you continue to learn and be happy.  I just wanted to check in with you to let you know that I am missing seeing you all in school but I love finding out what you have been up to by looking at the class blogs and popping into the Google Classrooms.  I also chat with the teachers and they have been sharing lots of fab things with me!

To keep up the positivity, it would be lovely if you could post something which has made you happy or you have enjoyed doing this week.  For me, it has been making cupcakes with my daughter and also celebrating and cheering on the NHS workers last night at 8pm by giving them a round of applause.  I look forward to reading your messages.

Take care,

Mrs Murray

P.S.  I may try to do a video message next week.  Mr Scotland has said I should give it a try!!!

Learning at Home

What work will the teacher set?
Our priority is everyone’s health and wellbeing. Your teacher will set tasks that learners can complete, please do not feel under any pressure to get them all completed at once. The work is set to use as your time allows. Teachers will provide generic feedback to pupils about their learning.
Teacher Availability
There may be some days when our teachers are quiet online, this could be for a variety of reasons such as being in one of the hubs, looking after elderly relatives or if they are unwell. The staff will continue to be your main point of contact for your child’s learning, however this way of learning is very new to us all so please be patient. If you have any queries outwith your child’s learning then please contact Mrs Murray or Mrs Campbell via the school e-mail address.
