On Friday 24 March we will be celebrating Red Nose Day. We are not making this a non uniform day however we are suggesting the children wear an item of red clothing alongside their uniform such as a red nose, hair accessory, T-shirt, etc. The children may also wear brightly coloured or unmatched socks. A suggested donation of £1 may also be given towards this worthwhile charity.
Thank you for your continued support.
We're now a few days into THE BIG PEDAL and it's great to see so many bikes and scooters taking over the front of our grounds. As you can see from the picture below, our average is 21.40% of pupils from P1-P7 cycling or scooting to school. That is fantastic for a large primary school with over 400 pupils!
Lets keep this up until the 31 March and see if we can raise our average.
A huge thankyou to Dave Wiggins of SUSTRANS who came into school today to give our P6s some cycling training. The children thoroughly enjoyed their time with Dave, even with the weather being so cold!
If you're needing a last minute Mother's Day gift (perfect for any mother or grandmother) , we still have a small amount of Cook Books still for sale. With recipes for starters such as 'Cranberry & Brie Parcels' or 'Beef Teriyaki Lettuce Cups,' and mains such as 'Mexican Chicken Quinoa' or 'Creamy Chilli Prawn Linguini,' you can't go wrong (and I haven't even mentioned the desserts)! All these recipes have been provided by friends, parents and grandparents of the school and include lists of all the ingredients and instructions you'll need in how to make the wonderful dishes.
If you are interested in purchasing these the cost is £5 for 1 or £8 for 2. Pupils can come directly to Mrs McCracken, Mrs Parker or Mr Gault or have the Cook Books. All proceeds go towards School Funds.
Today the Primary 4s worked with Miss Smyth on making spark videos about what they've been doing in Forest School. Making these videos included mixing pictures, text, icons and music to create short videos.

We are delighted to now have our Green Eco Flag flying high. As the children all came dressed wearing their Green clothes for St Patrick's Day, we thought lets go totally green and raise our first flag! Do you recognise anyone in the video?
Today in Forest School our P4s completed some Tree Maths. In groups, they measured the circumference of trees. Every 2 cm is approximately equivalent to 1 year of life, so we were able to work out that a lot of the trees were planted in and around 1933, when the school was built (We also worked out the age of the very large tree....it's a lot older!)
Using a small stick, the P4s were also able to work out an approximate height of the tree.
Even though it was a really cold day, the P4s enjoyed getting outside again!

P3 Mrs Matthews had fun today when Mrs Martinet was visiting to reinforce our phonics
This Wednesday is the LAST day of Golf Stars for this term
The BIG PEDAL has started!! It was wonderful to walk outside today and see so many bikes and scooters being used by our pupils to get to school. Every day over the next two weeks each class will total up how many pupils cycled and scooted to school, and these results will be uploaded onto The Big Pedal website so that we can track our results and try to get some prizes!
A great first day everyone.
