Some weeks just finish on a high so we’re going to start this week’s update with Friday’s news. A huge thank you to Mr Beattie for Continue reading Friday Update
Red Nose Day
Friday 15 March 2019
Red Nose Day 2019 is just around the corner and we’ve decided to join in the fun.
To raise money, we’re going to…
Throughout the week of the Monday 11th March, we will be holding a joke-a-thon. Learners who wish to compete can donate 10p to tell their best joke. The funniest jokes from P1-P4 and P5-P7 will be entered as finalists to say their jokes at assembly on Friday. The winning comedians will be named ‘funniest in the school’ and hold the title for a FULL YEAR.
Red Nose Sale
Red noses will be on sale from Monday 11th March 2019. Red noses cost £1.25 each. Members of the Pupil Council will visit classes throughout the week selling the noses.
Taking place at Lunch Time on Friday 15th March 2019. This will take place in the small playground at the outdoor play area fence. Teachers will be positioned behind a tarp, over the fence with their heads sticking out. It is 50p per shot! Practise your aim!
The Great Teacher Race
Taking place at Break Time on Friday 15th March 2019. This will take place around the usual daily mile route around the school. Sponsor your teacher to win!
Dress Down Day
Friday 15th of March will be a dress down day with a suggested donation of £1. Everyone is encouraged to wear something red!
The money we raise will be used to change countless lives, both here in the UK and worldwide.
In fact, just £3 could pay for crayons, pencils, paint and paper for children living in a Serbian refugee camp. And £10 could cover the cost of 10 hot meals for a homeless person in the UK.
We’ll also be using Red Nose Day as a learning opportunity to help our pupils explore the issues facing young people across the world, and how the money we raise can help.
We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping us raise lots of money for Red Nose Day.
This year all schools in East Ayrshire have been asked to refresh their curriculum rationale and school values. Your views as parent and carers are vital to the refresh. Please take a few minutes to complete the surveys. Many thanks if you have already done this.

Primary 4 learners helped to teach P1-P3 about fair-trade. It is fair-trade fortnight just now and we have been reflecting on the importance of supporting fair-trade products and how this can support communities in some of the poorest countries around the world.
Members of Kilmaurs Gala Committee visited P7 to talk about how they can become involved. P7 will be working on applications to submit outlining why they should be selected as part of the Gala Party. Good Luck everyone.
P7 learners visited Nether Robertland Primary School as part of the P7/S1 transition programme. Learners took part in a range of activities. This helps our young people develop skills in communication when meeting new people and cooperation skills when working in groups to complete given tasks.
Mrs Bradley, Mrs Brown and Mrs Allison attended training about transforming pedagogy (teaching approaches). This will be an on-going piece of work which will be included in the school improvement plan and will support improvements in learning and teaching across the school.
Thursday was World Book Day. We celebrated this on Friday and we celebrated in style. Well done to everyone for the brilliant effort with costumes including the staff. Teaching staff swapped classes in the afternoon to share a story.
The first of our play sessions took place today. Everyone had the opportunity to make slime. Our partners from vibrant communities led the session. There will be two more sessions on Friday 15th & 22nd March.
See you all on Monday.
If any of our parents/carers or community partners have experience in film making and would like to work alongside some of our young people on this project please contact Mrs Bradley.
Welcome to the Childnet Film Competition 2019.
Open to all UK schools and youth organisations, our annual competition invites all young people aged 7-18 to take on the challenge of creating a short film about internet safety. All films must showcase positive and inspiring use of the internet and clearly reflect our chosen theme.
Once again our judging panel will be looking out for films which are the most creative, inspiring and have a clear message. By taking part, you will be creating something that can educate your peers. The three selected finalists from both the primary and secondary age category will be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI where they will be presented with great prizes for their school or youth organisation to award them for their creative achievements!
