The City of Edinburgh Council has announced this morning that schools, nurseries and Early Years Centres will remain closed tomorrow (Friday 2nd March).
Happy World Book! Unfortunately due to the school being closed our planned activities have been unable to go ahead.
However… see the poster below for details of how we will celebrate our own World Book Day next Thursday 8th March.
We had a fantastic turn out of parents and carers who joined us for our Welcome Evening.
It was great to gather together to welcome everyone back following the summer break and for you to meet your child’s class teacher.
Mrs Gracie spoke about the National Improvement Priorities and the important role parental engagement plays in supporting your child’s learning. If you were unable to attend our Welcome Evening, Mrs Gracie’s Powerpoint presentations can be downloaded below and viewed at home.
We would also like to thank you for the fantastic response we have received for volunteers to join us in class and on excursions. Class teachers will be in touch if they are looking for assistance.
We very much look forward to working with you over the coming session and thank you for your continued support.
Primary 4 and Primary 5 teamed up to host a bake sale to raise money for Comic Relief. Both classes worked really hard and there were some amazing treats on offer to buy. Together we mananged to raise £138.53 to add to our whole school fundraising total for Comic Relief!
Primary 4 have been learning all about eating a healthy, balanced diet and also about the nutritional value of food. We have been learning to read food labels and have been thinking about the content of sugar, fat and salt in the foods that we eat. As part of our learning, we have been thinking about how home made food is often healthier than ready made meals. In our class, pizza is defintiely a favourite food so we took a trip to Pizza Express at Victoria Terrace to find out how to make fresh, home cooked pizza. We learned about the importance of using fresh ingredients and herbs to make our food tasty. It was a great trip where we enjoyed going on the bus and eating our pizza when we got back to school!
