Aldi and Team GB are challenging young people aged 5–14 to get creative and design an original recipe, inspired by Team GB. Enter from home or school for the chance to receive a host of exciting prizes and see your dish join Aldi’s online collection of Taste Kitchen recipes – featuring on both the Aldi and Get Set to Eat Fresh websites.

Entries must be received by Friday 12 February 2021.
Last lockdown we had two winners in national competitions – it would be amazing if we continued the winning streak. Although, we would love to just hear about your tasty recipes too. More details about the competition can be found on the link below.

Remember – if you do take part, be sure to email us a copy of your recipe. We can share them with others to try out.
Due to new guidance from the Scottish Government on the use of Microsoft Teams we are in the process of setting up a new platform for Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils (including Primary 2 pupils from Mrs Cassidy’s P2/3 class) to use during this period of distance learning. In order to access this we require to set up an adult account for every pupil. Please complete the form below with your up to date email address which will be used to sign you up for this service (it is possible to have 2 adults assigned to each child if you wish to). Full details on this platform will be sent to you as soon as possible – please be assured that staff are working around the clock to ensure that this is in place.
You should receive an email to the email address provided by Monday (at the latest) with login information. A video on how to use the platform will also be issued to all families on the Glow Blog. This is also where you will find the distance learning teaching and activities for your child and can be accessed here:
Primary 1 – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/ea/primary12020/
Primary 2 – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/ea/primary22020/
Primary 2/3 – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/ea/primary232020/
It’s here – it’s finally here! Enjoy our whole school Socially Distanced Nativity. Amazing performances from the whole school – well done everyone!
What a busy week it has been in Kilmaurs Primary!
I have been very busy getting to know all of the boys and girls, and they are a credit to all their families!
Our consultation on making small changes to our school day closed today and we will be in touch next week with the outcome. Thank you to all those who took time to complete the survey.
This week has seen one class take part in the first ‘Head Teacher Secret Mission’. The class has been asked to take on a top secret challenge to help remind us all about how we can demonstrate our school values on a daily basis. If you have noticed any of our pupils being particularly ‘kind’ this week, please do get in touch! We will find out which class has been on the mission and if they have been successful next Friday.
Today was a hugely exciting and successful day as we came together as a school community to raise money for Children in Need. A huge thank you to Mrs Bradley, Miss McCulloch and the pupil leadership team for organising all the activities. The children particularly enjoyed dressing up and designing their own ‘Spudseys’. I was blown away with the entries and you can see some of the finalists in the pictures below. We still have some money to collect, but at the last count we had raised over £200! Well done everyone! Keep your eyes peeled on the TV tonight as we may get a mention on the BBC Children in Need programme.
Staff and pupils have been developing their ICT skills as we all take part in our now weekly virtual assembly. ‘Kinecting Kilmaurs’ is giving us a chance to celebrate the amazing work taking place across our school, as well as wishing pupils a Happy Birthday. It has been wonderful having the opportunity to connect our pupils and staff a celebrate what makes Kilmaurs so wonderful.
A very special well done to Ryan Wilson who received the Head Teachers Award. Ryan received this for his idea of motivating and connecting all of our pupils through the Spudsey competition.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I am looking forward to another fantastic week in Kilmaurs Primary.
