What a great first outdoor learning we had, despite the weather!! Our Captains and Vice Captains have written reports about their team’s focus ….





Scholastic Book Fayre

All children will be able to view the book fayre tomorrow with their class (Friday 28 September).

ParentPay – packed lunch

Can I please remind all parents that a packed lunch should only be ordered through ParentPay if your child is going on a school trip. If your child is bringing their own packed lunch, there is no need to notify ParentPay. Thank you.

Active Girls Day

Our Primary 7 girls and our Active Schools Coordinator (Barry Holmes) are organising a morning of fun/physical sessions for the girls of Catrine Primary School to celebrate Active Girls Day. All girls should remember their P.E. kit on Wednesday 3 October so they can be involved in these activities. Please follow the link below for further information:

Primary 3/4 have been learning all about nocturnal animals and were very lucky today to have a special little visitor, Tilly the Tenrec.  We had fun learning all about tenrecs and loved watching Tilly clean herself in a sand bath!

Outdoor Learning – postponed

Catrine PS – Outdoor Learning postponed

EAC has issued an amber weather alert for tomorrow, Wednesday 19th September.  Our whole school Outdoor Learning Day is therefore postponed until next Wednesday, 26th September, so pupils should come to school on 26th September dressed to work outdoors!

The safety of our pupils is always our priority, and we apologise for any inconvenience. 

 Please contact the school for any further information.

All about windmills!

Our STEM ambassador George came in to visit us today and showed us how to make our very own windmills.  We learned all about the environment and how windmills give us electricity and what we need electricity for in our lives.
