Tuesday 18th May

This afternoon we had a wonderful time with our soon to be primary one children learning some Spanish.  They really impressed Mrs Gray and primary one with good listening and lots of hard work. We cant wait to see you all again next week.  We made a little video to share our learning with you.

Tuesday 25th May

Things got a little bit noisy in primary one this morning as we investigated keeping the beat with our new primary one pupils. Click on the link below to watch a little video all about keeping a steady beat.

It was lovely to see so many of you joining in with musical instruments and keeping a steady beat.  Next years primary one pupils are very talented musicians! Here is a little recap of our session in case you missed it.

Tuesday 1st June

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be in primary one? Our primary one pupils have been really busy making a documentary all about life in primary one. This afternoon we showcased the documentary with all of the boys and girls who will be starting school in August.

This afternoon we had some special guests join us on teams. Mrs McDonald and Mrs Rowley popped into our live meet to say hello. In case you missed it click on the video below to meet some more members of staff and to see some pictures of our school.

Finally we would like you to meet next years buddies. Primary 6 have recorded a video to help introduce themselves.

We have really enjoyed getting to know all of the children who will be starting school in August. We can not wait to meet you in a few weeks when you come to visit the school.
