Happy Holidays

P5 you have been brilliant!  We are so proud of the way you have adapted to Home Learning and kept in touch with your teachers.  Over the last week most of you have set up your new iPads and have been busy exploring them, ready for exciting times ahead in P6 and we know you’re going to be teaching your new teachers a thing or two!

We hope you all have a lovely summer and look forward to seeing you back in school in August.  Look after yourselves and, as Mrs Wilson would say, take care of your Mums and Dads.

Out and About

Happy Monday Primary 5.  We hope you’ve had a nice weekend.  The Sway for this week and last is still available from the Home Learning Page but we know some of you are always looking for extra things to do.  If you haven’t already done so, why not try one of the new Kingsland Challenges with your family.  They are available on the school website but here are some quick links too:

Challenge 6 – Peebles Town Trail

Challenge 7 – Be a Maths Detective

June already!

Hi Primary 5

We hope you are enjoying the lovely weather we have been having (don’t forget your sun cream and to drink plenty of water!).  Our next block of Home Learning is available form the Tab above – remember to get in touch if you need any help with anything.

This week many of the staff are involved with activities at the Hub so if you don’t get a response from your teacher straight away we promise to get back to you as soon as we can.

If you took part in last week’s Kingsland Challenge from Mrs Fletcher, please remember to email your teacher to tell us how many miles you and your family clocked up over the week.  There is also a new Kingsland Challenge on the School Website.  Have fun!

Keep up the good work P5

We are so pleased with how well you are adapting to this different way of working Primary 5.  Thank you to everyone who has emailed us, shared what they’ve been up to or joined us on Teams – we love hearing from you.  You are all doing a fabulous job and we are very proud of you.  New home learning for this week and next is available on the Home Learning page above.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or problems or just want to say hello.

A little fun in the Little house

If you have watched the Kingsland Virtual Assembly from 27th April you will have seen that last week I had a tropical desert island in my house.  This week my daughter and I transformed it into a backdrop inspired by a well known series of books and films.  Any guesses?

What books have you been reading while you have been at home?

Welcome Back

We hope you had a lovely time at home over the last two weeks.  Your next set of suggested home learning tasks will be coming later today and we look forward to hearing from you.  If you’re desperate to get started on something, why not head over to the school website and check out the new Kingsland Challenge!

Happy Holidays P5

It’s not the end of term any of us were expecting but we just wanted to thank you all for  your hard work this term (parents as well as pupils) and to wish you a very Happy Easter.  We hope you have a lovely restful time over the next two weeks and we’ll be back online on Monday 20th to share more learning with you.

Love Mrs Little and Mrs Rand


Well done P5

Primary 5 you have blown us away this week! Mrs Rand and I have loved seeing everything you’ve posted on the Share Space or the Kingsland Challenge page. Thank you too to everyone who has emailed to say hi, ask a question or send some work. We are missing you all but it’s lovely to keep in contact with you. It has been great to see all your Viking stuff – I feel we got our sharing time after all.

Now, it’s Friday and the weekend starts here. No homework please – try to do something nice with your family.  Read books, play games, build dens, do some cooking together and get some fresh air when you can. We’ll be in touch soon.


Handwriting Help

At Kingsland we have been trying extra hard with our presentation recently. I have been learning how to use some new apps on my iPad and thought this short video might be helpful to remind you (and your parents) how we form our letters for cursive script at Kingsland. I had to do it with my finger so I may not be quite on the lines.  Can you do any better? Remember to always start every letter from the line and use a leading join.

Kingsland Daffodil Challenge

I had a go at the drawing challenge set by Mrs Wilson and beautifully demonstrated by Mrs Collins. Have you had a go yet? I can’t wait to see how they turn out. Remember to share your finished pictures on the school sharing page via the Kingsland Website. Here’s mine…
