Free school meal payments for Christmas holiday period

Free School Meals Payment December 2020

I am writing to advise that the Council will be making free school meal payments over the Christmas holiday period for pupils whose parent(s) or guardian(s) are in receipt of certain benefits which entitles their child to a free school meal.

Currently all children in primaries 1-3 receive a free school meal due to Scottish Government policy. However, only those families who would be eligible for a free school meal because of the benefits they receive will be able to get the payment. We would encourage anyone who thinks they may be eligible to apply for this payment as soon as possible.

To find out if you are eligible to apply, please visit the web page below:

All applications should be made no later than Thursday 10 December 2020 in order to receive payment in time for the Christmas holiday period.

The payment made for each child whose family qualify for free school meals will be £2.25 per day of the holiday period which based on 12 days holiday, amounts to £27 per child.

Please note, if you have already made an application for a free school meal in the 20/21 academic session then there is no need to apply again.

If you have any queries in relation to applying for free school meals, please contact 0300 300 0300.

Yours sincerely
Steven Quinn
Director of Children’s Services

Busy bees 🐝

Primary 3 have been using the maths zone to reinforce their addidition and subtraction skills. We have enjoyed setting ourselves challenges.

We have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes.

We enjoyed making posters to display  what we have learned.

At the language zone we have been developing our co-operative learning skills. We are learning to work well as part of a group.

At the art zone we have been using a variety of media to create beautiful artwork.

We enjoyed making cards for a random person in our class. We left them a kind message.

We checked our wishes from term one and shared if our wish had came true and we made new wishes for the new term.

We have also been working on describing our emotions and sharing the triggers for our emotions. We are learning how to regulate our emotions independently.

Keep up the good work Primary 3 you are super stars ✨ 🦄 💖

Autumn walks 🍂

Primary 3 got the chance to go on a lovely autumn walk. We were searching for resources we could use at our art zone. We were also looking for signs of autumn and if we could spot any every green trees.

We had great fun being creative with the nature resources we had found.

King and Queen 👑

This week we had our first virtual assembly and the children got to find out the kings and queens from each of the classes.

This week our king of the castle was Brayden for trying really hard in all our learning zones and challenging himself (achieving).

Our queen of the castle was Layla M for being a super helper and always cleaning the classroom (safe).

Our Winners 🏆

I would like to say a huge thank you to  everyone who took part in our pyramid challenge. It was really tricky for the judges to choose!

On Friday we had lots more entries and they were all fantastic⭐️

The judges were blown away by your creativity and really struggled to choose, so much so, they asked our sport coaches to help them!

In third place we had Erin, they really liked her simple design. 🏆

In second place we had Lowri, they really liked how she had thought of the 3D shape. 🏆 🏆

In first place we had Mirrin, again they really liked the shape but they were blown away with her creativity! 🏆🏆🏆

Well done everyone – you are all winners to me 🏆🦄💖

Pyramid challenge 🇪🇬

I would like to say a huge thank you for all the fabulous pyramids that have been brought in so far. The children have enjoyed chatting about how they made them and they have all had so much fun! 😊 Our pyramids will be judged by Mr Mothersole and Mrs McCleod tomorrow. If you would like to take part remember to bring in your pyramids! 💗⭐️💗

It is going to be so hard for our judges, they are just fabulous! 🦄💗

Pyramid Challenge 🇪🇬

This term our topic is Egypt. Miss Keegan has set us a special homework challenge to create our very own pyramids. The only rules are to have fun and be creative 💖 We can’t wait to see everyone’s efforts!

I will ask for pyramids to be brought into school (if possible) on Friday 16th October.  They can be brought in before then if you finish early. If your pyramid is delicate and will break easily you can take a picture and put on your Class Dojo  so all your friends can still see it 😊

I hope you have lots of fun! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Primary 3 -last day 💓🌈

Good morning Primary 3! Today is a bit sad as it should have been our last day of school. I would have loved to be at school with you all, spending time together and hearing about your plans for the summer holidays. It is also a bit sad as it is the last day for me as your teacher. I have loved watching you grow so much this past year and I am very sorry that our time together was cut short. I know you will go on to do amazingly in p4. Thank you so much to all of you and your wonderful parents for welcoming me into your lovely school and for all of the ongoing support in your home learning due to Coronavirus. You are all such special boys and girls 💓😊 I have enjoyed getting to know you all and I have been so proud to be your teacher this year. I hope you all have a great summer…I know you will all continue to shine bright in p4 🌟 remember to leave a little sparkle wherever you go ✨🌈
