Well done to all those kids and mums and dads and carers and teachers who biked and scooted during our big pedal. We had nearly 200 kids each day turning up on 2 wheels every day during the 2 weeks. Wow! PLEASE DON’T STOP!!! Now that you’re in the habit please keep of biking and scooting to school just keep on going – it’s a great way to start your day.
We hoped you liked your wee prizes. with nearly 200 gifts to buy Halfords at Straiton park and our parent partnership were very generous in funding the prizes along with the school.
And the winners of the 2018 big pedal were P3a!! Well done team!
Here’s a wee video of our bike breakfast a couple of week ago during the big pedal:
Tomorrow we have a triathlon day for all of our P3s to P7s in school. 30 bike machines in the hall. cool!
If anyone can think of a better name for the new club we have on Wednesday mornings before school . . . . . . please let us know. Set up and run by the parent partnership the new club is a great way to start your day. Every Wednesday from 8am – 8:30am we’ll have some sporty games and fun in the gym hall followed by some healthy breakfast and snacks in the dining hall before we start school. It’s a family club so kids must come with a parent or carer.
For the next few weeks we’ve got Colin, Eric and Kirsty coming in to play some games with us and do a wee bit of dancing. This week we kicked off with the winter Olympics. Featuring curling (Scotland is very good at curling), the Biathlon and the Luge.
We are so proud of our wonderful school – We won the First Ministers Reading Challenge for the whole of Scotland. The pupils were fantastic and met the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon at the Award Ceremony. Keep on reading Craigour Park…
