Dear Parents and Carers,
- P3 pupils and teachers shared their learning with parents and carers on The Egyptians, a topic which they have really enjoyed. Thank you for all the positive feedback. It all helps inform our next steps. Thank you P3 Team for a great afternoon.
- P7A, P7B and P7C have been developing their team building skills, which they will use in school, in life and in preparation for camp, not to mention in their dancing today at their WWII Tea Dance. A great event, Dance and Tea Party was enjoyed by all!
- Transition to Boroughmuir: P7 spent a morning trialling some of the activities the High School have to offer. Spin class, cooking and sampling lunches and snacks from the canteen were very popular! Lots of positive responses from all the children.
- Ava, Rosa and Rosie in P7C raised £45 for Red Nose Day by organising ‘Guess the number of sweets in the jar.’ Impressively they had a vegetarian jar, a dairy and wheat free jar as well as a traditional jar of sweets. Well done girls!
- P6 and P7 pupils did very well at the Cross Country on Monday at Duddingston Playing Fields. Congratulations to Elodie who came first in the P6 Girls race, Torin who was fourth in the P6 Boys race and Innes who was second in the P7 Boys race. Great sportsmanship from everyone who entered made the day a success.
- I am amazed how quickly the children are learning to play the guitar at their after school club. I was lucky enough to hear them play and wish I had booked in for lessons too!
- Earth Hour: P4 children made posters to raise awareness of the importance of conserving energy. Hopefully everyone will join in on Saturday at 8:30pm. We shall turn off as many lights and electrical sockets as possible on Friday between 11:00-12:00 noon to promote the message.
- The Summer Fair has been changed from 25 May to Saturday 1 June 2019. The Parent Council are looking for helpers to plan the Fair. If you are interested, please let the Parent Council or Class Representative know. Your help will be much appreciated.
If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
