The aim for our Personalisation & choice day was:
- I value the opportunities I am given to make friends and be part of a group in a range of situations. HWB 0-14a/1-14a/2-14a
Each group participated in a wide range of activities and made a poster to share their experiences. We also had an assembly where we all sang a German song and shared our learning through a silent PowerPoint, it was fantastic!!
Thank you to all of the teachers for providing interesting and exciting activities, to the support staff for their help with cooking and to the children for being excellent examples of Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors

As a school we have once again enjoyed celebrating Scottish literature during our book week. Each class selected a book by a Scottish author or worked on stories that originated in Scotland. The children showed great enthusiasm for their learning and were provided with exciting opportunities to explore links between reading and many other curricular areas. Miss Loughton encouraged the children to use their drama skills to explore aspects of the texts whilst the children used skills in art and technology to show off their creativity. Skills in reading and writing were developed through exciting contexts and the children proudly displayed their work in the corridors and their classrooms.
We were delighted to welcome so many parents and carers into school to share the work that had been done. The children spoke with confidence about their learning and this was commented on by those that attended. Feedback from parents was very positive. It is great for the children to share their learning and the fantastic opportunities that are available to them in school to such an appreciative audience.
Parents and carers who attended our open morning were invited to vote for their favourite door. These have now been added to the votes of the children and staff and we are pleased to announce that the winners were P2M for their fantastic work on ‘Stick Man’. This book was written by Julia Donaldson and was a very popular choice. Within the middle block, P5H received the most votes for the Sleekit Mr Tod and in the top block, P7Ca received the most votes for the Nowhere Emporium. If you were unable to attend, we hope you will enjoy looking at the photos of the doors – we think they are fantastic!
