We really enjoyed sharing our learning and performing to our friends and families during our Scottish Showcase. To celebrate St. Andrew’s Day each class studied an aspect of Scottish Culture and learned a Scottish song. P6 and P5 also shared the social dances they had learned for the Day of Dance in Troon. We found out all about the diversity of Scotland, the food, famous Scots, artists, Viking attacks, the Wars of Independence and the History of Ayr. The show was a complete sell-out. If you saw the show, please leave us a comment.

Get set… we’re taking part in The Big Pedal 2017, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school. The challenge runs from 27th to 31st March. It’s free to enter and we would love everyone to be involved.
On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Our five days will determine our final position in the challenge. We’ll be competing against other schools right across the UK, and if we clock up the most bike and scooter journeys we’ll win!
All you need to do is encourage your child(ren) to cycle or scoot to school every day during the event, and join them on their way – parent and sibling journeys count too!
Please remember to bring a lock for you bike or scooter.
