‘Tennis on the Road Programme’ aims to inspire coaches, children and parents to get involved in and stay in tennis. This exciting event is taking place at The James Young H.S on Thursday 27th April! This will be led by Judy Murray who will also be present at the event. Judy’s innovative coaching style and content gives everyone involved a great introduction into the basics of tennis in a fun and engaging way that in no time at all helps them to master the fundamentals of what can at times be seen as a complicated sport to play.
This is a fantastic opportunity for parents and children to come together and learn the game using Judy’s unique style. Please see the poster attached below for the parent and child (5-10 yrs old) session taking place from 3.30-5.00pm and contact details to book on!
Spaces are limited and are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
James Young P&C_
There is a FREE ATHLETICS open afternoon taking place at the James Young H.S on Friday 20th January from 2.00-3.30pm. The club is aimed at P4-P7 pupils and is a fun club focusing on running, jumping and throwing. This will give children the opportunity to try out the sport before committing to joining the club and paying for the block. If you would like any further information and to book your child a space you should contact Kim O’Connor, Active Schools Coordinator on email: kim.o’firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 07917078448.
Our preparations for our St Andrew’s Day celebrations are underway. All children in Primary 6 are working hard to remember their lines, song words and dancing steps!
We look forward to sharing our learning at the Lanthorn with our cluster schools and also on our family ceilidh night Thursday 1st December 18:30. Tickets are still available!
If you are please send me a wee message in the comment box below.
In anticipation for any snowy days, the children at Second Level are well-prepared for any closures! All children have (or will be given in the very near future) their Glow log ons, a home learning activity grid and a selection of websites you may wish your child to complete at home. The activities vary in challenge and offer a range of different approaches to the curriculum.
Paper copies of log ons, the activity grid and websites can be found in your children’s homework diaries. Or you can click here!
P6/7 had a fantastic time applying lots of skills at the Sky Academy in Livingston. We created an in-depth and highly professional news clip highlighting the plight of endangered animals across the world and the actions we can take to save them. Sadly the clip is too big to upload on this blog but each child was lucky enough to receive a USB wristband with the clip stored on it. We will show off our hard work in assembly next week. We also have a responsibility to ‘keep the magic alive’ for other prospective journalists!
We’re P6/7, reporting for Bankton Primary. Good afternoon!

P6 had great fun today carrying out their interval training! Meeting Liam Davie was really inspirational too.
Here we are in action, we were quite exhausted by the time we had finished 7 minutes later – perhaps we need to work on our fitness levels?
It was a big thumbs up from all of us!
Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
