On Tuesday 26th January, over 140 parents, friends and family members attended an open afternoon at Springfield Primary School. Miss Wallace (and several pupils) shared a numeracy presentation followed by classroom visits. Partners who supported this event included West Lothian’s Numeracy Development Officers and Linlithgow Academy.
The pupils were super at sharing their learning and explaining Big Maths strategies too! We are so proud of them.
Mrs Tulloch was able to share the work she has been doing with pupils for the Scottish Mathematical Challenge.

P1 – P3/4 donned their gym rubbers and put their creative hats on for P.E today.
The P1’s and P2’s continued their Better Movers and Thinkers work today, with the aim of moving and thinking in a more cohesive way. So far this year, they have been working hard to develop their kinaesthetic awareness and coordination through a variety of ball games. We have seen a huge improvement in the children’s skills over the first few months and have had lots of fun in the process!
Further up the school in P2/3, P3 and P3/4 we were designing new games and sports today, and teaching our peers how to play them. Each team worked collaboratively, communicating effectively and sharing their ideas to create an original game that could be easily taught to the rest of the class. The children took advantage of all the equipment from the P.E cupboard and came up with some amazing ideas for new games. I had to refrain from jumping in and playing them!
Well done P1-4! Have a look at the pictures from today below!
In the new term, P2/3 will be learning about castles!
Have you visited a castle?
What do you already know about castles?
What would you like to know about castles?
P2/3 are delighted to announce that they are going to be studying Castles in the new term.
On Friday 4th December, our school was transformed into a Winter Wonderland! There were various stalls offering gifts and goodies from pupils, parents and partners. The morning was a huge success and great fun was had by all. We managed to raise a whopping £1750 for school funds. A huge thank you to our amazing P.T.A. and everyone who contributed and offered support for this event.
