For Wellbeing Week our task today was to consider “Kindness”. Primary 4 took time to create their own definition and then spoke kind words about their class mates. You can’t help but smile when you are being kind
Good Morning Primary 4. Click on the link below to find your tasks for today. I will be working in the school hub today so I won’t be available to answer questions straight away. Mrs McDonald is in our Google Classroom so she will be able to help you if you need it. Looking forward to hearing from you.
This Christmas many of our pupils will be finding new phones and tablets in their Christmas stockings, lucky them! However as they get started viewing videos, chatting to friends and live stream gaming, it is important for us to remember to keep them protected.
This year CEOP has created a series of videos to help parents keep their children safe. These short clips can be the starting points for chats about how we behave online outside of school.
Take a look at the Parents Activity Packs for some great ways to get started.
Congratulations to St Fergus’ Primary 6 and 7 pupils who were awarded their grades in the Scottish Engineering Leaders Awards this morning. Lockdown aside, this was a bumper year for entries with the largest number of pupils entering their designs than ever before.
Their task was to think of a problem that exists and then design a solution.
This year three pupils, Olivia, Hailie and Emma, stood out with their entries being selected to the final stage and shortlisted for the award, an amazing achievement!
Well done to all!
Big Loose Parts Play
We are also looking to collect large loose parts for outdoor play. This kind of play can be used from primary 1 to primary 7. We are hopeful that’s some parents through their line of work may be able to donate these items to our school or may have family members or friends who could do so.
We are looking for
• Plastic crates
• Wooden cable reels
• Larges pieces of fabric and tarpaulin
• Plastic pipes and guttering
• Tree stumps and logs
• Wheel barrows
Any donations can be left at the school gate and Scot will bring them into the school grounds.

We are going to be introducing loose parts play into our learning in St Fergus’. Loose parts play has been used for many years with amazing results. It is encouraged throughout the primary curriculum for indoor and outdoor learning opportunities.
It is a chance for children to
To do this we need to collect loose parts. The list of possible loose parts is endless but can include:
If you have any of these things at home that you would be willing to donate to the school we would love to have them. Please only donate things that you already have at home and are no longer used.
A box will be left just outside the school gate for items to be left. Scot will bring the box into school for the items to be quarantined and cleaned before use.
