The Christmas Post Box begins on Monday, 5th of December. Pupils are invited to post their Christmas cards for delivery around the school. Please ensure the forename, surname and base number is written on each card to ensure the correct person receives the card. Christmas post is for school cards only. Primary 6 pupils will sort the cards and help Primary 1 pupils deliver the post each day.
Primary Seven were rewarded with delicious hot, sticky marshmallows squeezed between chocolate digestives as a final treat during their Outdoor Learning workshop with the Forestry Commission. Their faces tell the rest of the story!
Base 9 have been learning about cops and robbers. On Tuesday they enjoyed a visit from the community police, PC Lauren and Stephanie. They got to try out the handcuffs, try on the police hats, got their finger prints taken and even got to sit in the police car! Some of them were even lucky enough to put on the blue lights and siren.
Base 12 recently visited Summerlee Heritage Centre to take part in a Victorian workshop. The workshop allowed the boys and girls to become historians for the day and share all that they had learned from their recent Victorian topic in class. The boys and girls were able to handle some real Victorian items, write using chalk and ink, play with some Victorian toys and even dressed the part as a Victorian.
They all had a fantastic time, well done Primary 6.

Generous and caring pupils, staff and parents went dotty for Children In Need. Lots of fun was had by all as pupils wore clothes and learned about Pudsey Bear and the importance of Children In Need. The day began with Base 7 pupils presenting Children In Need information to others at assembly and progressed with a variety of art and design and writing across the curriculum activities. Two caring parents also dressed up in Pudsey pyjamas and raised a whopping £100 to add to our final total. This combined with the nursery and school donations resulted in a fabulous £665.46. The day was rounded off by a mention on Children In Need. Well done to all everyone who donated to such a super cause. Thank you to the pupil council for organising the whole school event and also to Rhianna and Siobhan for being photographers for the day!
Primary 6 and 7 were fortunate enough to have an assembly and class workshop delivered by child line and NSPCC. We learned all about keeping ourselves and others safe and how to tell the difference between appropriate and inappropriate actions. We know that we can speak to lots of different people to help us like parents, teachers and the police as well as contacting Childline. The children listened really attentively during the workshop session and impressed our visitors! Well done everyone!
