The Big Pedal

A massive thank you and congratulations to all who took part in The Big Pedal Challenge today.  Can you believe that over half of our school were able to cycle or scoot to school?  Thank you as well to the 19 parents who cycled to school and those who walked with their children who were taking part in the challenge.

Stand by Me

On Wednesday 23rd March we held a fundraising day for our charity "Stand by Me." The school council agreed that it should be a "Wacky Day!" Children came dressed in a variety of costumes, some had their clothes on back to front and there was a great variety of wacky hairstyles!

Active Superheroes!!!

Congratulations to all 42 children who completed their active superhero challenge sheets over the last few weeks.  Certificates for completed sheets were given to all children and it was great to see the number of active travellers that we have in school.

Using ICT

In Primary 2, we have been learning all about ourselves. We have discussed how we are all different and have been using the programmes on our computers to record this.

Bun Sale

Last week, Primary 6 and 7 (those not away on School Tour) were busy making buns with their classroom assistants.  They then held a bun sale on Friday morning, to raise money for our School Charity, Stand By Me.  The sale was a sell-out success, with all children in the school enjoying a tasty bun at breaktime.  We raised a total of £73.52.

P2 at Castle Espie

On Thursday 14th May, P2 went to Castle Espie. We had great fun feeding the ducks and learning about Springtime. We also went pond dipping and some children caught a few tadpoles. The tadpole still needed to grow some legs. This was very exciting as we had been learning about the life cycle of a frog in class!

Bike Rides on Brighter Nights

With the brighter evenings of May and June finally here, now is the perfect time for the whole family to get out and about on foot, bike or scooter.  As you know we have been promoting active travel to school over the past year, working with Sustrans. The Sustrans website can provide you with a list of safe cycling and walking routes.

Wacky Hair Day!!

On Friday 15th May, we had a Wacky Hair Day to raise money for the people in Nepal, following the devastating earthquake which hit the country. Homes, hospitals and schools have been destroyed and over 4000 people died.
