P1 Easter Egg Hunt

Primary 1 had lots of fun today taking part in an Easter Egg hunt. They showed great team work helping each other to find their egg.  They then put their counting skills to good use to check that they had found all the eggs!

Primary 1-3 author visit.

Primary 1 – 3 had a visit today from author Michelle Sloan. She read us her picture book ” The fourth bonniest baby in Dundee involving a broken down bus  engine oil, puddles and a rude raspberry. The story was fun and the children enjoyed it. Michelle also read  from her newest  book  called the “Animal Adventure Club”which is an ideal book for children moving from picture books to chapter books. Michelle talked about why she became an author and where she sources her ideas. She commented on the quality of her audience and was very impressed with their knowledge of stories. A big thank you to Michelle for her informative and interactive author visit.

Primary 1 03/04/19

Primary 1 has had a busy week so far. On Monday they went outside to look for signs of Spring and did superb drawing and writing about what they saw when they returned to school. One of the children even spotted a ladybird!

Over the last couple of days they have been enjoying learning about Easter and doing activities and crafts. Today they made and donned their fabulous Easter bonnets.

Terrific Tuesday in Primary 4


What a terrific afternoon we have had in Primary 4. We started off by having a virtual lesson with Primary 4/5 at Our Lady’s Primary. We really enjoyed the chocolate quiz that they wrote for us and we hope they enjoyed our PowerPoints!


Our Together Time today was great fun – we have new toys and art & craft materials (thanks to the PSA!). Here we are enjoying our time together with the toys and other resources.

Nursery Week Beg: 25th March 19

Hello everyone,

It has been a very busy (&sunny!) week here at Kirknewton Nursery Class. We have had lots of fun developing our skills and relationships.

Here’s what we have been up to:


  • We have been playing ‘rugby’ in the garden
  • We have been watching and closely observing the P7 class play dodgeball and football this week. We were being ‘Good Spectators’. We then decided to have a game of dodgeball too.
  • We have been developing our climbing and risk assessing skills as we climb trees in the school field / forest. We are developing our sense of belonging as we discover the world around us.
  • Some children have chosen to take part in the Daily Mile this week – we managed 2 laps round the field. Well done to those involved!
  • When we are finished with our play, we have been putting our resources away.



  • When out in the garden we sang ‘ There were 3 in the bed’ as we climbed on the frame. It was very fun to jump off when it was our turn.
  • We have developed an outisde reading area or a ‘chill book area’ as one of our learners called it 🙂
  • We have been waiting our turns during conversation around the lunch table.



  • We have been exploring the properties of amount and size as we have been playing outside at the mud kitchen.
  • When going out to the field, we have been talking about distances.
  • We have been trying to look after the garden, by sweeping up and helping to put things away.

Thank You

  • A Big thank you to Mrs Storrie and Mr Farmer for all their help this week. Thank you to our P6 Buddies who joined us. Thank you to P7 for letting us watch your Dodgeball and for being  role models of Responsible Citizens.
