Hello Everybody

Well, what a strange term this has been. We’ve all been very busy but at home instead of being in school with all our friends. I’d like to say thank you to all our children and families for participating so well in the activities. I know you’ve all been enjoying the videos. Thank you too for posting all your wonderful photos. It was so good to see  those smiley happy faces and to see what you’ve been doing. Madison’s been doing lots of baking with mum and looking at her face in the photos, lots of tasting too! She’s been out on her bike and having lots of fun in the garden. Angel has also been an outdoor girl, playing in her garden on lots of equipment and riding her bike. She’s also been busy doing lots of building with her large sized building blocks. Hafsa has been in the garden too, relaxing in her hammock. She did some beautiful art and craft work and had lots of fun with her little sister. Pete has been doing lots of walking and helped make an insect home. More recently he had fun on his family’s boat. He’s been loving all the videos too. Tommy has found his feet and there’s been no stopping him.  He’s been enjoying his paddling pool, a real wee water baby. He’s also been trying out lots of the posted activities and loves watching the videos. Matthew, I’m sure you’ve been having lots of fun with your brothers.

As I’m retiring I wont be in class when you come back in August, but I hope to come in and see you all.

Have a wonderful summer.

Take care and keep safe.

Love to you all.

Helen

Lomond – Summer is here!

I would like to say thank you so much for all of the support and joint working throughout this year and particularly during this final term. It has been unusual circumstances but I have enjoyed suggesting learning experiences to share at home. I have particularly enjoyed your messages, videos and photographs of all of the great things that you have all be doing throughout this time. You have all made myself and Team Lomond smile and should be very proud of the achievements made.

I hope you all have a lovely summer holiday and return to Beatlie in August, happy and healthy.

Happy Summer Holidays!

Team Lomond.

Pentland

Hello everyone, we hope you are all well. We are keeping our fingers crossed for lots more lovely sunshine over the coming weeks.

What a strange ending to our year, it has definitely been a challenge for everyone and I hope you have enjoyed some of the learning activities we have been sending home this term. It has been lovely to see and hear what you have all been up to. Taylor won’t want to come back to school after spending lots of time in her lovely new hot tub and Benjamin has been having lots of fun outside playing with his water tray and on his trampoline. Mollie has been enjoying lots of time out in the garden and Liam and Brendan have been working hard at home. I’m sure Stanley has been having lots of fun with his brothers and sisters at home too.

We can’t wait to welcome you all back to school next term. Hope you all have a lovely summer.

Campsie

Well I think we can all say this has been the most unusual term ever! Learning at home has been a huge challenge for everyone but I am so proud of how hard every has worked. You have risen to the challenge  and have all been superstars (including the parents). One of my highlights has been the virtual Sports Day challenges, where Jackson won a few of the events. We have also benefited from lots of lovely weather so have been able to take lots of our learning outside. As a staff we have loved keeping in contact with you through the Learning Journals and with our videos we have made. It has been fantastic to see some of the experiences you have had at home.  The Campsie team are all going to miss each and every one of you so much as you move on to your new schools for Primary 1 and we wish you all the best. Have a super summer!

All our love Susan, Tracey, Nicole, Shonet and Ashley

Lammermuir

What an unusual term this has been!! We would like to say thank you to our children and parents for taking part in the home learning activities and sharing your progress with us through photos and videos. These really made us smile. We had lots of fun down on the farm, meeting the sheep, pigs, chickens and cows and exploring vegetables. We have also taken part in Earth Day, Numeracy Day, a mini Olympics topic with sports challenges, spring activities and a mini butterfly topic. We have been very busy indeed! As we look towards next session we sadly have to say goodbye to two of our children as they move onto the next part of their journey at Pinewood, we wish them all the best as they start on this new adventure! Others are returning to Beatlie Nursery and P1 class and we can’t wait to see them again in August! Wishing you all a fantastic summer break. Stay Safe Team Lammermuir

Term 4 in Harburn

Well this has been an unusual term!! Harburn team would like to say a huge “thank you” to all the parents and pupils of Harburn for taking part in the activities we send home and keeping us up to date with fantastic photos of learning activities at home.  As all 5 of our pupils get ready to move onto P1 we have been busy with passing on lots of information about each of them to their new school and class teams.  It is an exciting and unusual time for them all but we wish them all the very best as they start on this new adventure and know that they will bring lots of happiness with all their smiles and cheeky antics!

Thank you for allowing us to be part of your lives for the last year.  Have a fantastic summer break and work hard in P1.

Glendevon – Term 4

The children may not have been in school but a special mention must go to all you wonderful families for coping with such uncertain times!

Do we have anybody signing up for Teacher Training?

Glendevon had their up and down days like most of us but I was very impressed by some of the activities they got up to and look forward to seeing the children continue using their skills as they come back to school.

I very much hope that you are all able to have a fantastic summer and enjoy getting back to some normality even just to see loved ones!

I for one have missed you all and look forward to seeing you all again in August.

Best wishes from all the team x
