Thanks so much to everyone who participated in our January Active Fun Challenge. The number of active minutes logged across West Lothian Primary Schools was phenomenal and 32 primary schools in West Lothian took part.
Carmondean Primary logged 33 days, 2 hrs and 9 minutes of active minutes in January- AMAZING!
I’m hoping that you all made your New Year Resolution to be as active as possible in 2021 because I have entered the school into a competition to find the most active school in West Lothian and in true Carmondean spirit we are in it to win it!
How can you help?
Be as active as you can. Any activity counts from taking taking part in PE lessons to walking your dog to dancing along to Just Dance.
Record the number of minutes each week you are active and submit the number on this form. This most be done by 10am every Monday. ( first submission date is Monday 18th January)
Every Tuesday the school with the highest number of weekly activity minutes will be announced and at the end of the month the school with the highest number of minutes throughout the month will be the champions.
Good luck, happy exercising and if you have any questions please get in touch.
As we head into the summer holidays I wanted to share a document with you that has some ideas for games you can play at home with your family and friends that require very little equipment but are lots and lots of fun. Click on “Family Games” below to access the document.
Have you heard of Guinness World Records? Every year this organisation publish a reference book , listing world records both of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world.
They have a fantastic website with details of some of these world records and also lots of activity ideas for you to try at home. Every week they set a challenge and this week’s challenge is ” Most foot taps by a team of 2 in 30 seconds.”
Good morning everyone. First of all I wanted to to say the biggest thank you to everyone who took part in our sports day at home this year. I loved seeing photos and videos of you taking part as well as reading some lovely comments about how much fun you were having. Weren’t we lucky with the weather despite the forecast! Then on Friday I was absolutely over the moon seeing the huge number of results that had been submitted.
Now onto the information you want to hear. Drum roll please……………………

2nd place Raeburn
3rd place Deer Park
4th place Waverley
Thank you for your efforts and well done to everyone taking part. You are all winners to me.
Well done to everyone who has submitted sports day results so far. There is still plenty time to take part so COME ON Deer Park, Raeburn, Sutherland and Waverley. Raeburn are in the lead at the moment so if you don’t want them to be winners you’d better get scoring points for your house.
I was delighted to see photos of some P1s taking part in their first primary school sports day. Can you do as well as them? I’d love to see some more photos.
Good morning everyone. I hope you enjoyed watching our video yesterday. I’m delighted to see that some of you have completed your sports day already and manged to submit your results. Deer Park, Raeburn and Waverley already have points in the bag for their house, so come on Sutherland complete the sports day activities and submit your results.
Good luck everyone and fingers crossed for some sunshine!
Good morning Carmondean and welcome to Sports Day (at home) 2020. Let’s get active, have fun and win points for your house team.
A big thank you goes to Primary 7 and the Sports Committee for their ideas of sports day activities that could be done at home. You have been set 7 challenges to take part in this week to win points for your house. Please contact your class teacher if you are unsure of your house team.
Please click on the word document for information on what the activities are, how to score them and how to submit your scores. Please note- only submit your scores ONCE ( typing your score as a number only please) and when you have completed all 7 activities. Your scores must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 19th June 2020.
Good Afternoon everyone. I hope you are all doing well and keeping active at home. Last week I told you about the West Lothian Primary PE Network daily challenges on Twitter and here is today’s challenge. Think you might recognise the challenger!
Happy Wednesday Carmondean Primary. I just wanted to let you know about some daily PE challenges that the primary PE teachers in West Lothian are posting , sharing and trying on twitter. If any parents use twitter then please head over to @WLPENetwork and follow for the daily challenges. You might even see a famailar face once in a while.
Good morning everyone. I hope you have been keeping active at home. I’m sure this lovely weather will be helping with that.
Did you know that the London Marathon was meant to take place this Sunday , 26th April? Maybe you knew someone who was going to be taking part or you know someone who has completed this endurance running event in the past. It will hopefully take place later on this year.
A marathon distance is 26.2 miles. That’s like running from Livingston to Stirling Castle ( Wow!) Since no one can run the marathon this weekend some of the charities involved with the marathon have decided to set a 2 point six challenge and I’d like you to see if you can do any of these challenges?
I’m sure lots of you have been trying to keep active every day however I know it will be hard now that we have to stay in our own house or garden. If you come up with any great games/ways to stay active then let me know and we can share with everyone. If you’ve not already found PE with Joe then here is a link to his workout this morning. A great way to get energised for the day ahead
so proud of this group of P6 and P7 girls who represented Carmondean at the West Lothian Primary School festival of Danve today. They have worked so hard over the last 5 weeks to learn and perfect the dance being taught to them by a former pupil now in 5th year at Deans CHS. They displayed confidence and achieved success on the stage today. Well done!
I’m so delighted to announce I had 4 classes this week where all pupils remembered to bring their PE kit. Thanks for all your help with this and please keep it up. It’s so much easier, safer and more hygienic to be taking part in PE Kit.
And its that time of year again where pupils learn some Scottish Ceilidh dances so they can do them at their christmas party. They had great fun dancing the Gay Gordons, Military Two Step, Dadhing White Sergeant and the Flying Scotsman this week . Ask them to show you at home.
