Money week in P3A

We have had great fun this week focussing our maths around money. We started this week with a visit from Mrs Taylor from the TSB who taught us about the different ways to earn money, spend it and budget.


We then explored coins and notes and even turned our hand to a bit of forgery! We tried to create a secure bank note by adding security features such as detailed pictures, hidden messages and serial numbers. It was great fun challenging each other to copy our notes!img_20161013_120535img_20161013_120517


Happy holidays to you all!




Bathgate Academy will be holding an Open Evening for Primary 7 pupils and their parents/carers to attend on Wednesday 12 October.  It will be held at the Academy and will run from 6-8pm.

Health and Safety reminder

Can we remind all parents and carers that Simpson Primary School is a nut free zone. Due to severe nut allergies within the school community, no nut products should be brought into school (including a number of chocolate spreads).

Thank you for your ongoing co-operation in this matter.


This week we were learing what was in the Titanic and more about the people who travelled on it. We are beginning a progect to build a diorama of one of the rooms.

Leah, Ruby, Cooper, Maria and Sophie J have been helping the P1s with their work and helping them to learn how to play games properly.

We have been reading  a book called Spiderwick Chronicles. The main characters are Mallory, Jared and Siman Grace. We have been learning how authors create good characters in stories. We have even written a chapter of our own.

Today is Marias last day at Simpson Primary school. We will miss her so much.
