Don’t forget that the next Uniform Exchange organised by our Parent Council will take place on Thursday 16th June from 8:30am-9:15am. See the poster below for more details.
Our JRSOs have a very busy week ahead of them. This morning they were reminding pupils about the importance of crossing with our crossing patrol officers. Keeping everyone safe as they walk home is our biggest priority and all children were reminded to cross sensibly.
The JRSOs will also be reminding pupils about the School Streets pilot we are participating in. This has been up and running since September and access restrictions are in place at school peak times.
Please click here for more information. Police WILL be patrolling the top of Abbey Street.
This week our classes joined in the RSPB’s Big Schools Birdwatch. Each class chose a bird that they wanted to learn about. We went outside to see if we could spot any visitors to our playground.
At assembly, classes presented their birds to the rest of the school: blackbirds, crows, owls and much more!
The Primary 1 classes celebrated their 100th day in school this week. They got together and took part in some great activities including making 100 Day crowns, doing 100 exercises and painting 100 dots. Most importantly, they reflected on all the things they have learnt and achieved in school so far and felt justifiably proud. We are very proud of them too.
October is International Walk to School Month and now that the School Streets project is up and running, we have started tracking our journeys to school using an online travel tracker. Our aim is to make as many active journeys to school as possible be it walk, park and stride, scooter, skate or cycle.*
This month we are recording our journeys to school every day with the aim of making it into the top ten most active schools in Scotland.
Today we received our first piece of exciting news…
Abbeyhill Primary made in into the top 10! Despite yesterday’s awful weather we were number 7. This is a brilliant start and we are all looking forward to climbing even higher in the next few days. Let’s see how many of us can make active journeys to school this month.
* We would ask that any child wishing to cycle wear the appropriate safety clothing and that younger, less confident cyclists are accompanied by an adult.
