Smartie Tubes

Thank you to the Newmilns Food Hub who has donated enough smartie tubes for every child in the school to bring one home to empty…yummy… and refill with 20ps. These will be coming home soon so you can start saving those 20ps 🙂


We are currently working on some prizes to hopefully hold a raffle! Details of this will follow.

Lots of school staff have bravely accepted Mrs Young’s £100 challenge. They are now heading off working on their own individual tasks to try and raise £100 each!

Burns Supper and Poetry Celebrations

Today in classes we celebrated our Burns Supper and Poetry Competition. We did this virtually so all classes could still take part and enjoy the celebrations. Well done to all the children for working hard to learn their poem. Remember even if you were not a finalist you are still a winner for learning your poem and trying your best!

Well done to everyone who took part, the performances were brilliant and even resulted in some very close votes!

Please click on link below to watch the performances and join in with our celebrations!

Mrs Young has also made a Thinglink with different fun Burns themed activities to enjoy!
