Eagles – yellow
Falcons – Blue
Hawks – Green
Ospreys – Red
We are excited to invite you to attend an evening of fun and learning to celebrate numeracy and maths. The event will be run by our Cluster Numeracy Co-ordinator, Mrs Kyle Smith. Please join us for a Family Maths Games Night on Tuesday, 19th February from 6.30 – 7.30pm.
You will have the opportunity to participate in some maths activities with your child/children that will demonstrate ways to further encourage and support their learning at home. This will be an informal event where you can drop in and choose the activities you want to play. As this event is open to all stages, please consider walking to the school. If travelling by car, please be considerate of the neighbouring residents.
Your oldest child has been given a return slip today. To help us organise the event, I would appreciate if you could complete and return the slip in your oldest child’s bagbelow by Tuesday 22nd January.

Yesterday, we had a spooky end to our Creative Construction masterclass. Your challenge was to build a Halloween object or scene. I loved hearing you work in groups describing all of the gory details of your creation! Here they are:
In yesterday’s Creative Construction masterclass we had to build a ‘home’ for a creature that had an entrance, two rooms and thought outside the box. Here are our designs.
Your child has their Christmas card order form in their bag. If you wish to order any cards etc, please complete and return with the correct money in the envelope provided by Monday 29th October.
Please check the spelling of your child’s name as the original form was scanned by a computer so there may be errors.
Thank you in advance,
We had a great morning where all the P4 and P5 pupils moved around to a different teacher to experience a different maths challenge. We had Maths Relay, Escape Room, Code Breakers and Sumdog. Some of the tasks were quite challenging but you were all engaged and put in a superb effort.
Yesterday we had our last Creative Construction masterclass and we linked it to our bridges challenge. The success criteria was:
The model must:
- Span a gap of 50 cm.
- Be aesthetically pleasing.
- Be able to hold a calculator.
Everyone had fun making their bridges but some of them didn’t last until the end! Here are the bridges that did survive and meet the criteria.
