Welcome Primary 1s!

We can’t wait to meet all of our new Primary 1 pupils and their families!

Here is our plan for your first week of school:

Wednesday 10-12pm

Pupils enter alone through the Main Entrance to the school located at the front of the building. There will be many opportunities for photographs at the beginning and end of their first day. We kindly ask all parents to refrain from taking any pictures etc once we have opened the doors as our priority is to get the new pupils in and this can be quite time consuming.

At 11.30am families are welcome to enter the school through the Main Entrance and meet their child in their new classroom. There will be opportunities for photographs etc at this time.

Thursday and Friday 8.45-12pm

Children enter the school from the Dining Hall door located at the side of our main building. At the end of the session the children will leave through the Main Entrance located at the front of the school. We kindly ask families to be patient at this time as we have a lot of pupils to dismiss and each child will only leave their teacher once the member of staff has seen their parent/guardian.

We look forward to seeing you  all!

P1/2 Trip to Newhailes

We had a fantastic day out yesterday! We spent our morning at the Newhailes Estate in Musselburgh. The children used their learning from class to measure some of the trees in the woodland and calculated how old they were!

We then spent some time in the Weehailes play park. It was great fun!

Thank you so much go our adult helpers for joining us today! We all had a brilliant time.

Signor Baffo’s Restaurant!

As an end of term treat, P1/2 were invited to a very special performance at Moredun Library! We were able to watch a taster of Signor Baffo’s show which will be on at the Fringe Festival this year.

We had such a fantastic time! The children and Miss Read were laughing from start to finish! We are so thankful to Mrs Cameron for thinking of us, this was a brilliant show that we all recommend to any families going to the Fringe this year!

It’s a Living Thing!

Not only have P1/2 been growing sunflowers in class, but the pupils have also been looking after some Caterpillars! It’s amazing how much they’ve grown in just one week. Miss Read is so happy to be keeping them on her desk where they can stay warm.

We can’t wait to see them make their cocoons and become butterflies!

We’re Spring Chickens and we’re having a ball!

P2 and P1/2 have had a fantastic week! We all got to take part in an Easter egg hunt in our classrooms. It lasted a good few seconds…. We then looked inside our eggs and read the different sounds we’d found. Each child got a prize for successfully reading their sounds.

This morning we took part in some baking! Each child made their own rice crispie cake that they could scoff at our Star of the Term movie afternoon. What a fantastic time we’ve had!
