Our Last Week!

We have made it to the last week of Primary 4 everyone!  When we started last August we had no idea this would be how we ended the 2019/2020 session. 

We would like to say a big well done to all of the children in our year for being incredible during a unique and challenging time.

Even though we are not physically in school to enjoy our last week the P4 teachers have created special virtual classrooms.

In our 2 virtual rooms there are lots of objects.  When you click on the objects they will take you to fun activities, websites and video clips that we hope you enjoy.

Here is the link to our virtual rooms:

Once you click on the link it will take you to this screen.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO SIGN IN! Simply click on the Present button (circled in red on the picture) to see the rooms.

All previous work will still be available on the blog too so if these virtual rooms don’t take your fancy you can always look on the blog pages for activities you may have missed.



We have a special competition for you to complete during the last week of term! We would like our young people to design a banner or poster which welcomes all our visitors to the school. Your poster should include our school values – Confidence, Happiness, Achievement, Respect and Responsibility, as well as the school logo. The poster should also include drawings of pupils in their school uniform. Remember to make it bright and welcoming!

The winner will receive a special prize as well as their poster professionally produced and displayed around the school building on our return in August. All entries should be sent to Mr McIlwraith no later than Friday 26th June 2020. Please email your entry to



Have a lovely week P4!
