A huge thank you to all the parents/carers/grandparents who came to help us build our castles today! Everyone was so focused and engaged during the process and some amazing castles were constructed. I think there were maybe even some dads who wanted to stay rather than go back to work!!
They will be coming home to you soon but we are going to try and paint them first. Another messy job, but lots of good fun...
We were finding out about Fairtrade today. We tasted some yummy Fairtrade chocolate and delicious bananas. We will be looking out for the Fairtrade logo next time we are out shopping!
The Digital Dynamos pupil group would like to invite all parents/carers to their ‘Collaborating with Chromebooks’ Information Evening on Wednesday 27th March from 6-7pm in our school gym hall.

Keeping fit and healthy and having lots of fun!
We love being super role models for the ELC boys and girls when they come to visit.
Primary 1B love learning! Have a look at how hard we work when undertaking our literacy tasks. And you thought all we did was play…
We have been carrying out some water investigations and, as part of this, we were looking at and holding various objects and then predicting which ones would sink and which ones would float when placed in water . We then tested to find out if our predictions were correct.
It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’. As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices. This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.
Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.
We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:
We hope you find all of this information useful in supporting your children and all our pupils and ultimately keeping them safe online.

As part of our RRS we took part in a flood simulation. We thought about how it affected our rights and the emotions we felt. The children showed such kindness and thoughtfulness towards each other until help arrived. The children were reassured that the teachers all new what to do to keep them safe and that the emergency services and organisations like UNICEF would come to our aid. We then watched a video about a school that had suffered a real emergency and saw how quickly the school was repaired and the children received their right to an education and clean water.
Show and Tell with the Brilliant Butterflies, the Busy Bees and a very attentive audience!
Super numberwork partners…
…and Marley completely focused!
Some of primary 1s decided to come along to Mrs Armstrong’s lunch time craft club today. We had a lovely time making tooth fairy pouches to put under our pillows for the tooth fairy! As it turns out a few of us have wobbly teeth so hopefully we will be able to put the pouches to good use soon!
