Education Scotland have recently produced a parental leaflet to explain the changes to assessments that are happening this year in P1, P4 and P7. Click here or follow the link under ‘Useful Information’ on the right-hand side of the site.
All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed performing at our Scottish Showcase to two packed audiences today. Each class shared their learning about Scottish language, songs and culture – from the dinosaur with the ‘jaggy’ back to the ‘yella’ owl! P5 and P6 also showcased dances they had learned for the ‘Day of Dance’ they recently attended in Troon.

Paw Broon has won the Postcode lottery! Hooray!
He spent two thirds of his winnings on a baronial Highland castle.
He spent two thirds of what he had left on a luxury yacht so he could take the family on a tour of the Scottish Islands and sea lochs.
Then he spent two thirds of what he had left on funding a scientific expedition to locate the Loch Ness Monster.
He spent his final £20,000 on treating Maw Broon to a week at Skibo Castle.
How much did Paw Brown win on the lottery?

- sit in car seats and/or wear seat belts on every journey
- keep quiet in the car so the driver can concentrate
- be aware when walking on the pavements and crossing the road
- walk, cycle or scooter to school to become strong and healthy and help the planet

Mr Stewart came into school with his super gritter to give the pupils the opportunity to discover how Ayrshire’s roads are kept free of snow and ice during winter weather. The pupils enjoyed the workshop and learning about the importance of delivering winter services within our local communities and they especially loved the opportunity to get up close with the gritters to see how they operate.
