It has been another insightful week looking at the impact pollution is having on our Oceans. The boys and girls have been so motivated by this topic that they were writing reports about it for nearly an hour and did not even notice! Between looking at plastic and nets and the damage these can do to sea life to making campaign posters to protect our oceans as well as creating graphs showing the recyclable and non recyclable materials we are using daily. We are also using the school water bottles to create a whale tail sculpture as well as encourage the proper recycling of these as opposed to sending them to landfill.
Next week the pupils will be gathering for the annual pupil parliament to make decisions on what the school should improve on for next year. Carmondean value our pupils’ voice and it is important that we are all involved in the positive changes we can make to our school.
It won’t be long till we hit the beach (hopefully in the sun!) so make sure you have sent the yellow forms back with the correct payment of £5. It is a great day out!
Tomorrow is our annual summer fair and although the weather is not looking great there is still fun to be had so we look forward to seeing you all at 11am for that!
Have a great weekend!

It was lovely to welcome everyone back after their week of transition at Deans Community High School last week. We were very pleased to hear that the children thoroughly enjoyed their transition activities and now feel more familiar with the high school environment.
The last 3 weeks of Primary 7 are going to our busiest yet! The children have been exploring the skills, qualities and qualifications that you need in order to succeed in a variety of different occupations. We have researched a huge amount of careers including video game testing, geology, plumbing and translation! Now the children are working in groups to display their findings in creative ways and will be creating advertisements to showcase their chosen career. All of this hard work will be on display at our Carmondean Open Morning on Friday morning.
Parents, families and friends of children in P7C can visit the school between 9:30-10:30am and parents, families and friends of children in P7M can visit the school between 11:00-12:00. We really look forward to seeing you & the children are looking forward to showing their learning.
Rehearsals for the Leavers Assembly are now well underway. The children now know their lines and are working on perfecting the show and practising the songs. We are looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 27th June at 1:30pm in the big hall.
Next Tuesday 19th June the children will be going to Aberdour Beach with their P1 buddies. Please ensure that the children return their EE2 forms and £4 for the bus as soon as possible. The children should come prepared for all weathers and bring a packed lunch with them or order one from the school in advance.
Thank you for all your support.

Last Monday the children came back with lots of stories about what they had been getting up to at High School. They had a great time during their week at High School and hopefully they shared these stories with you!
On Tuesday the children visited Aberdour beach with their P1 buddies. It was a great day and the children enjoyed playing in the water and the sand. Primary 7 really looked after their buddies making sure that they were safe at all times.
On Wednesday the children took part in sports day. Luckily the rain held off for the most part! The children worked really well in their teams to gain points for their Houses. Well done to Waverley for winning overall.
We have been practising for our Leavers’ Assembly which will be on Wednesday 28th June at 1.30pm. Please remember to send in your request for tickets as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you there!
On Friday the children showcased all their work based on the ERASMUS+ Project. Primary 7s focus was on Bulgaria. The children were able to show their parents the work that they had been doing and the work other classes had been doing. Thank you for your support during this open morning.
The P7 Prom takes place on Thursday 29th June at 6pm and will be held at Deer Park. The Prom Committee will go up on Thursday afternoon and decorate the room in preparation for this. The children are very excited about this and we are looking forward to seeing them all dressed up! A good time will hopefully be had by all.
On the last day of term the children can bring in their Carmondean Polo shirts and shirts for others to sign with good luck messages.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the year and we wish you well in the next chapter of your child’s school life.

Primary 3 h.ave a busy couple of weeks coming up.
This week we are looking at Poland as part of our Erasmus + project and we will be showcasing our work at the open afternoon on Friday 23rd June. The children have been set a homework task about this. They are to find out any facts about Poland and present to the class. This can be done in any form such as through photos, sentences, craft, stories, food or dance and it is due this Friday 16th June.
We are also planning our beach trip next Tuesday so could you make sure all forms have been handed back in to school along with the £5 payment.
Weather permitting we will be visiting Eliburn Park this Thursday. Please make sure your child has a waterproof jacket, sensible walking shoes and a snack as we won’t return to school until lunch time.
This Friday is our Day of Change, please send in any spare change and the children can dress in opposites such as pjs, scarf, hat and gloves etc.
Have a great week!
