The boys and girls in Primary 2 are off to a great start to the year. After some small set backs with getting into our classroom, we are patiently waiting aboard our Pirate Ship.
But they are still enjoying being little, and had a super time today meeting their Primary 7 buddies and sharing some lovely stories with them.
As the staff are busy getting classrooms ready for the start of the new term, we are looking forward to seeing all the pupils back in school on Monday. Please remember, we have slightly new times for our School Day that you can look at here.
Enjoy the last few days of holidays!

Primary 4 took the train to North Berwick this morning. Although we were hoping for a lovely, sunny day to complete our trail around the town and use our recently acquired mapping skills. Sadly, the weather decided not to play along. We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Lobster Hatchery where Maggie explained the various stages of the lobster life-cycle. After lunch the weather improved so we continued with our trail to Lodge Gardens where we enjoyed a play time in the park. Just enough time to have a wee cone before returning to school on the train. We were all shattered after our busy day.
