Fantastic BigSchoolSleepOut for Catrine Primary. We went back in time Celebrating 50yrs of Catrine PS at a #BigSchoolSleepOut Games of old! Everyone had great fun & participated in skipping, marbles and hopscotch!
A huge thank you to all the parents, pupils and staff who helped to make the night a great success with lots of fun and happy memories being made.

After reading the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’, P1/2 and P2/3 decided to be brave and try some well known fruits and also a few fruits that we didn’t know much about. We got straight to work in our tribes and began to prepare the fruit for tasting. We had pineapple, grapefruit, mango, tangerines, bananas, peach, passion fruit and avocado. We now plan to gather our findings and create a graph to find out which was the most popular and least popular fruit. We’ll keep you updated with our progress!
Last week, P1/2 and P2/3 had some very special visitors from all the way from South Africa. Aimee’s relatives were visiting Scotland and very kindly offered to visit our class. We were so excited to tell them all about our topic and the amazing things we have learned. We then had some brilliant questions and found out lots of interesting facts!
“What is the weather like in South Africa?”
“How many different types of animals have you seen?”
As part of health week, Mrs Watt very kindly agreed to share some of her first aid knowledge with the Primary 6/7 class. It was very interesting and very informative. The children had a great time and found out some life long skills about being first to the scene of an accident.
All pupils are coming home this afternoon with a letter highlighting their class for session 2018/19. We are going to have a mixture of straight and composite classes. Please follow the link below for EAC guidelines on composite classes.
Our Primary school and ECC welcomed 2 visitors from Education Scotland at the beginning of the week. We received lots of positive comments, highlighting the many areas of improvements across both establishments, and helping us to focus our priorities for the coming years. They were very impressed with the positive learning attitudes of our children, and the commitment and professionalism of our staff. I look forward to sharing the Education Scotland report with you soon.
This year we took part in the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award 2017-2018. This remarkable STEM award, managed in partnership with Scottish Engineering, the University of Strathclyde, the RAF and Weir asked children:

Just a quick reminder that all pupils are allowed to wear sporty clothes for the rest of the week, as per school policy-no football colours please!
Tomorrow the 6th of June the ‘CHIP’ van will be on the school grounds; some of the kids got very excited when I said this, but then retracted when I told them it was for Health checks and not a chip roll! 🙂
The chip van will be available for adults and staff alike, I will be encouraging all the staff to go and get a free check up and I hope you do the same if you can.
