As we have pupils with severe nut allergies, can all parents/carers ensure that pupils DO NOT bring in food for snacks/packed lunches that contain nuts or traces of nuts. The health and well-being of our pupils is a main priority, and we much appreciate your support in keeping our children safe.
Please contact the school office for any further information.
Thank you to all the parents who have created their ParentPay account. Please ensure you have your child’s school lunch ordered for Monday 19 August by Friday 16 August to ensure correct delivery from Auchinleck Academy. If you have any issues ordering your child’s lunch, I will be available at the school office from Monday 12 August – you are welcome to contact me at any time.
Thanks to everyone who came along to our Service on Wednesday morning. It was a pleasure to highlight the accomplishments of our pupils over the year, and to celebrate with our P7s as they move onto secondary school. Attached are the names of our prizewinners for session 2018/19 – congratulations to them all.
As part of their World War 1 topic, Primary 7 created a Remembrance Garden in the school grounds and scattered poppy seeds. Poppies have now started to grow in the garden, and are a symbol of remembrance of the First World War.
The whole school had a great time watching all of the pupils who performed at Catrine’s Got Talent this morning. What a talented bunch we have at Catrine Primary School. The pupils (and staff) entertained us by showcasing lots of talents including singing, dancing, gymnastics, telling jokes, football skills, skipping and many more. Well done to Lauren Grieve and Kay-Cee Johnston who sang ‘Let it Grow’ and were our winners. Thank you to P7 for organising a super show!
Primary 7 were delighted to receive their Read, Write, Count Moving Up Kits yesterday from the Scottish Book Trust and Scottish Government. The kits were gifted to the pupils to help with their transition to secondary school and included items to help with their learning. Included in the kits were: a water bottle, a USB stick, a journal, a scientific calculator, a pocket dictionary, a stationery set and a booklet to share with adults at home. These will come in very useful when the pupils move to the academy in August.
P3/4 and P4/5 joined up for a fun-filled morning of play on Friday. The children chose a range of activities including Twister, construction, basketball, gymnastics, art and football to name a few. Everyone had a great time marking the longest day of the year.
As part of our Play on the Longest Day celebrations, Primary 1 and Primary 2/3 decided to make the most of the nice weather and explore the outdoors. We talked about the skills that we develop through play.
Here are some of their ideas…
‘We were being creative.’ Bette
‘We were learning to solve mysteries.’ Kiara
‘If someone falls we help them up.’ Olly
‘We share with each other.’ Lexi
‘Being kind to each other and if you fall out you can help each other to sort it out.’ Ellie
We were so excited to once again welcome 13 times Scottish Junior Cup winners Auchinleck Talbot to our school. The children asked former pupil Captain Wullie Lyle lots of interesting questions. Jamie asked how heavy the cup was and was very lucky to be given the chance to hold it! Thanks so much to Mr Chisholm and Ava’s dad for bringing in the cup again…maybe we will see them again next year 🤞
