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!
You might have heard about the initiative ‘Mile a Day’, that has started in some schools around Scotland.
During school each day, children go out with their classes to walk, run, jog or skip a mile. Schools involved have seen fantastic benefits: improved fitness, behaviour and concentration.
We thought it sounded like an excellent idea! This week Primary 7 measured out two different tracks and got active. Primary 2 and 3b have also been using our track, with the rest of the school to follow after our February break, staff included!
Primary 7 have enjoyed their first full week of this, and have set targets for themselves. They also enjoyed buddy time, when helping Primary 2 on their first day, also joined by 3b.
It might be the first few days of the new year, but some of us are still trying to hold on to those last few memories of Christmas and all that it brings!
