Well done to all P4’s and P5’s in our Summer performance.
Ethan – We worked hard to perform in front of our parents and friends.
Ivana – We dressed in bright colours so that everyone would feel like it is holiday time already!
John – I liked performing so my Mum could see me. She said I was very good.
Hannah – My Mum was proud of everyone because they just got up and went for it without any adult help.
Lucy – My Mum thought I did very well and so she gave me a surprise!
Lewis – I was very nervous because I was right at the front.
Ewan – It was fun because I like performing in front of all the adults but I was a little nervous.
Mrs Davies – I am so proud of my P4’s and their smiles really made me happy. Great singing and dancing from everyone. Well done!
What an exciting week for the nursery boys and girls. The children have now all had the opportunity to meet their teachers and buddies with the help of the nursery staff.
Daniel “I saw people I already know”. Sophie “I liked meeting my buddy and going on the telly”. Nieve “I liked the room and my buddy”. Thomas “I liked painting the butterflies”. Arran “I liked meeting my buddy. I want to see him again”.
The seeds the children have planted have started to sprout thanks to the lovely weather we have had. The children have been monitoring them and taking care to water them with a little prompting.
Sports day is on TUESDAY weather permitting. If the grass is too wet or slippery unfortunately we will be unable to proceed.
Due to the current condition of our grass area and the foreseeable weather forecast our Nursery Sports Day will have to be cancelled. This will be rescheduled for another day and will take place in the gym hall. Apologies to all parents as unfortunately due to lack of space parents will not be able to attend.
Our Opening Ceremony for the new extension will now take place on Wednesday 15th June at 10.30am. A number of invited guests will attend the ceremony, who will be welcomed by all the children and pupil reps from across the school will also attend the formal proceedings. We have been awaiting this event for a few months now and hope that everything will run very smoothly on the day!

Sharing Learning – A poster to persuade
We have been making the most of the sunshine and taking our learning outside.
Baylie – It was really fun working outside our classroom. I got to sit outside because I was wearing sun cream.
Lucy – I liked making the poster about persuading people because that’s what my Dad does for his job.
Ewan – I liked using chalk outside because you got to draw stuff.
Lola – On sports day I was 5th in the flat race and people were cheering me on. Thanks!
Sky – I didn’t win any races at sports day but it was still fun and I really liked the potato and spoon race.
Mrs Davies – What have you enjoyed doing in this great weather?
Primary 4 children have been very busy over the last few weeks designing and making model gardens. They were set the challenge of making a 3D model using any materials including recycled, arts and crafts and natural. Every model that was brought in was different and it was clear the children had all enjoyed the challenge. To help the children share their learning classes were invited to come and take a look and ask questions. Pictures will follow in due course…
Primary 6A have had a great week taking part in Bikability. Led by Mrs C. Campbell and with help of Mr Topley, Mr and Mrs Roberston, Mrs Morrice and Mrs McCall, we have been out in Wester Inch developing our road sense and learning a number of new skills. We have worked on left and right hand turns, safe starting and stopping and many signals to let road users know what we are doing in order to stay safe. Well done everyone and thank you so much for all our parental support.
