Children in Need 2019

A massive than you to everyone who donated money, items and their precious time to help our fundraising efforts for Children in Need. We raised a fabulous £786.58! Mrs Prentice and Miss MacArthur would also like to thank the P5 pupils and P7 volunteers for all their hard work organising and running all the fundraising activities. Well done everyone!

UNCRC Birthday Celebrations!

To celebrate the 30th birthday of the United Nations Rights of the Child, please enjoy a special day at school on Wednesday 20 November.

Come to school in your party clothes if you want to dress up!

Play some fun party games

Enjoy a special Celebration assembly with UNIKIDS.

Let’s have some fun as we remember all the UNCRC articles that we enjoy.

P2B Updates

We are now settled into a busy second term here in P2B with lots of exciting things happening over the next few weeks. We have started practising our songs for this year’s Nativity along with P2A and all of P1. Children with speaking parts will also receive their lines home this week so please keep an eye out for these should your child be in this position.

We are very lucky this term as we will be receiving tennis coaching every Friday for the next 4 weeks. Please ensure full PE kit is taken in each Friday for this. For the remainder of term, we will no longer have PE on a Wednesday.

Finally, a reminder of our trip to Vue Cinema which is taking place this Thursday (14/11). Could all children please bring a snack and drink with them on this day for the film (no fizzy juice). Please also ensure that full school uniform and suitable shoes are worn.

There will also be a ‘Dress Down Day’ on Friday for a donation of £1. There will also be a bake stall and raffle. Any donations of baking (no items containing nuts please) or items for our raffle would be gratefully received. Please send in any items of baking, or prizes, into school by Friday. Thank you very much!

Blythswood Shoebox Appeal

P5a are organising a collection for this year’s Blythswood appeal. We would be very grateful if we could have all shoeboxes handed into school by the 08.11.19.

Leaflets about the shoebox appeal, including a checklist of items, were sent home this week. Please let us know if you need any more information or anymore leaflets.

Thank you so much for your support!

P2B Blog

Hello, and welcome back to another term in Primary 2! A couple of things to note this week – our class will be going to the book fair on Thursday morning, where children will have the opportunity to browse or purchase a variety of books and stationery items. Please also keep an eye out towards the end of the week for a letter regarding an upcoming school trip.

As always should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office and I will be happy to organise a suitable appointment. Our learning overview for this term will follow later in the week.

Blythswood Shoebox Appeal 2019

This is an advance notice that we will be supporting this year’s Blythswood Shoebox Appeal.

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us in the past. Last year we collected 55 shoeboxes and we would love to make this an extra special Christmas for those in need again this year.

This year Blysthswood will be collecting our filled Shoeboxes on Friday November the 8th. We would be very grateful if all donations could be handed into school by then. A checklist of suitable Christmas gifts to include in your shoebox will be going home on the first week of term.

Please help us to spread love and hope this Christmas.

Thank you!


Thank you to everyone who took the time to come along to our open morning today – it was great to see so many faces in our classroom. All of the children really enjoyed having family members in to see them, and all of the work they have done so far this year.

This week, pupils will not have any spelling homework, but please do continue to read with your child every night if possible. There is no expectation that pupils should read their whole book every night, instead, choose a section of the book or focus on tricky words (try to vary the part of the book you read each night). Maths homework is a revision of everything we have done so far in P2, and as always, please ensure this is completed by Thursday.

P2B Information

Miss Cockburn will be off tomorrow (04/10) and Monday, and Mrs Paterson will be in on these days instead. Miss Cockburn will then be in next week from Tuesday to Friday.

In P2B, we are also going to be collecting milk bottle tops to use with a variety of activities in our class, therefore, if anybody has any spare lids we would appreciate these in any colour.

Show and Tell is being done in groups from now on as so many children are keen to bring things in for this. Tomorrow, it is the turn of Group 2. This is the second half of the register, which is surnames from Mi to W.


P2B Bridge Building

Today in P2B we have been looking at bridges as part of our topic. We spoke about different kinds of bridges, and what these may be made from, before building our own. Each group had a different material. Once these were finished, we discussed why some blocks worked better than others and how we can make them better next time. Take a look at some of our creations below!

P2B – Week 4

It has been a very busy week in P2B with lots of new learning. We have been learning how to count in 2s and 10s, as well as making our own food chains as part of our ‘Moray Firth’ topic. Take a look at some of our work in the pictures below! I hope you all have a great long weekend, ready for lots more hard work on Wednesday!

Indoor Shoes

Just a polite reminder to all parents that children should have a pair of indoor shoes, as well as a different pair for outdoor use. Especially with this wet weather, carpets can quickly become damp and covered in grass. Changing our shoes ensures the carpet is kept as clean as possible for us to sit on.

Thanks, Miss Cockburn

P2B Show and Tell

Now that we are into our third week of Primary 2, and we are settled into our class routines, we will be beginning show and tell. If your child wishes to take something small in to talk about, we will take time each Friday for show and tell. Please bear in mind that accidents can happen, so it is suggested that fragile/valuable items are not taken in. Items such as a small toy, photograph etc. are perfect.
