Harrysmuir Netball Team

Last Thursday the netball team went to a league game at Parkhead Primary school. The Netball team for the games were Leigh, Ellie, Rachel, Jessica, Mhairi, Drew, Lucy, Demi, Daniel and Emma. There were five other teams Meldrum, Bankton, Knightsridge, Livingston Village and Parkhead. The rules only allow seven players on the court at one time. Our coach brought along new players to experience netball games. The newer players rotated with some of the other players who have done netball before. We all did really well only losing one game and winning the rest, placing 2nd out of 6 other teams. We need to practice passing the ball quicker and staying with our man but overall we had fun. We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Duff for helping us improve our netball skills.

Dear Parent/Carers

P7 Home-Learning

P7 are learning about WWII. We have home-learning tasks related to the topic. A copy of the tasks are attached.

We are lucky to be having a visitor to the class on Monday the 21st November who will be letting us see some artifact relating to WWII. Watch this space for more information!


P2 Homework: Moon Diary

As part of our Science topic, the Sun and Moon, we will be completing a Moon Diary for the month of November and into some of December. We have attached the letter outlining the task, and worksheet that is to be completed. We would recommend looking at the moon once a week over the time set for the task – this will allow you to see the change in the moon’s shape.

Keep an eye out tonight for the Super Moon – the largest and brightest moon in 70 years! How cool is that?!

Please return the homework for Monday 5th December 2016.

Arts & Crafts After School Club

We are having great fun at out Arts & Crafts after school club. Last week we made Bonfire collages and this week our theme was ‘poppies’ as it is Remembrance day on Friday 11th. We painted fields of poppies using our thumb and finger prints and made poppies from lolly sticks and tissue paper. We talked about why we wear poppies and Aidan knew it was so we could remember those who died in the war. We can’t wait for next week, I wonder what we’ll be creating? 🙂

P6F Dream Jars

We have just finished reading the fabulous book ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl. We made dream jars by adding paint and glitter. Some dreams were phizzwizards (good dreams) and some were trogglehumpers  (bad dreams!) What do you dream about?

P6 Homework tasks November 2016

Here is a copy of our Homework for this term. Tasks should be completed by Monday 12th December. We can ask our teachers if we need any resources.


Information Regarding Measles

Measles infection in Lothian

Measles cases have been confirmed in Lothian over the past month in teenagers and young adults.

Please do not send your child to school if they have any symptoms suggestive of measles infection.


The symptoms of measles include fever, lethargy, runny nose, conjunctivitis, cough and a red, blotchy rash which starts at the head spreading over the chest and limbs. The rash generally fades within ten days.

If your child has developed symptoms suggestive of measles, you should keep your child at home and contact your General Practitioner for further advice by phone (or NHS24 if out of hours on tel. 111).

This is very important in order to avoid the spread of measles to other people.

People with measles are infectious from around five days before the rash appears until four days after the rash appears and should self isolate at home during this time.


The best protection against measles is two doses of MMR.
