Fun at sports day.

What fun we all had at the nursery sports day. We had lots of budding athletes just bursting to demonstrate their skills. There was jumping, balancing, hopping, throwing, and lots and lots of laughing.   Mums, dads and buddies were fantastic supporting the children cheering them on and most importantly making sure they had a great time. Well done everyone.



We have a slide show with lots of pictures of all the action which we will display on Monday at the beginning of the session.


The proceeds from our plant sale have been used to purchase a variety of plants suitable for our wildlife garden. The children have been busily planting these and are looking after them.


This afternoon and next Friday we have our new boys and girls coming for a visit before they join us in the new school year.

P2A’s Outdoor Classroom Day

So many photos and so many comments from the children about our fabulous Outdoor Classroom Day yesterday – too many for a blog post so I have collated them in a Sway.  Have a look!

Family Movie Night

Last night’s Primary 3 movie night was a fantastic success and what an amazing turn out!  Over 250 people crammed into the hall and enjoyed our 16 class movies made entirely by the pupils.  We had Romance, Action, Adventure and Musical genres all on show and you can view the movies by following the tweet below:


Thank you again for all your support and patience with costumes whilst we made our movies.  We would also like to thank Mr Costello for his input and guidance during his Acting Workshop.


Last Blog of the Term from P1C.



Lily remembered learning about ‘qu’ this week. “We learned some words with qu in. Barbeque, queen, quick, and quack.”

“Me and Julia did writing.” – Agata. They wrote about going to the park together. Rudy wrote a lovely story about penguins on the ice caps.

We have started writing for our competition this week. Zuzia, Alexander, and Lucy wrote some fabulous ones. We will finish off the others after the holidays.



“We were doing adding” said Ted. We have started to use a new website called ‘doorway online’. Why not try it out for some new activities in Maths and Literacy.

“We had to add the long blocks together to see how many there were.” -Brodie.

“We watched a France Has Got Talent. My sister Bailey was playing trumpet in assembly.”


A quick note from Mr James-Watling:

Can I just say a thank you for all your kind words at parents evening. It was so lovely to catch up with you all. As ever I am always available at the end of the day if there’s anything else you would like to talk about.


Have a lovely holiday. We are already looking forward to seeing you!


P1C and Mr James-Watling



Red Nose Day- Simpson Primary School Staff-a-thon…..

It wasn’t just our children who were making their ‘Laugh Matter’ today, to help raise money for Comic Relief. Staff and teachers at Simpson Primary have been making their ‘Laugh Matter’ too and raising money for a great cause!

Stay Play and Learn


You stayed you played and you learned. The children were delighted to share their learning with the grown ups. Mums, Dads and grandparents alike were treated to all the wonderful games, stories, singing, role play and much much more. We hope you all enjoyed the experience and are super excited to come and join us again in the future.

Following on from  our world book day last week the children have been creating their own versions of the story of the Gruffalo. Take a look at our Literacy display We are sure you will be delighted with the children’s hard work  and amazing achievements.  As spring is slowly drawing closer the children have been exploring the structure of  flowers at the investigation station. They have also been painting beautiful pictures which are really magnificent.

Have you  booked  your appointments for Parents evening?  If you are having any difficulty with this please ask a member of staff for assistance thank you. We are looking for  empty 2 litre bottles for an exciting new project which we will  be starting in the nursery garden.  We would be most grateful of your help in getting this started thanking you in advance.

A Wonderful Week of Learning in P1C

It has been a lovely week in P1C and with the sun shining we went on a lovely walk around the school as well.
