A HUGE thank you for your food donations!

Thank you for all your generous food donations to our Christmas Food Bank Appeal. Not only did we manage to reach our goal of making a Christmas dinner hamper from each class, we have also collected enough additional food to make another large donation to West Lothian Food Bank. The donations will be taken to the food bank warehouse in Livingston tomorrow and they will be distributed by their team before Christmas.


Our nursery has the opportunity to win £250 worth of free books. In order to achieve this we need YOUR help!

From the 11th of November The Scottish Sun Newspaper is giving away ‘books for nursery tokens’ in their papers every day.

We are asking parents and families to collect these tokens for us. We must collect 1750 in order to win these fantastic books.

The deadline for this is the 15th of December.

Get Collecting!

Thank You,

The Nursery Team.

Buddy Reading in P1

P1 enjoyed a visit from their P7 buddies this afternoon, who came down to read a story to them. The P7 children engaged beautifully with P1, reading enthusiastically with fantastic expression and fluency. The P7 children chose great quality picture books which had their buddies smiling, talking about the pictures and laughing at the funny plots. Thank you again P7!

This Week in P7/6

This week in P7/6 we:

  • Learned about rationing during World War Two and how our modern day diet differs to that of the early 1940’s.
  • Wrote the final draft of our evacuee letters.
  • Discussed clothing in French and designed our own piece.
  • Looked at various strategies for addition in Numeracy.
  • Played the Shannon Switching Game in Maths, looking to find a winning strategy and to identify if one of the players had an advantage over the other.

Have a great weekend!

Mrs Lauder.
