Marvellous Maths

We have started off the year with lots of great maths. As our focus has been Place Value, introducing 4 and 5 digit numbers has allowed the pupils to decide what level of challenge they think is appropriate to them. It has been brilliant to see so many of the children pushing and challenging themselves. We have made maths really active with lots of games and activities. Check out our Place Value treasure hunt and rounding game.


Amazing Swimming Skills

A huge well done to Alasdair in P5B for his gold medal in a butterfly stroke swimming competition. Great job! 

Congratulation Molly

A huge well done to Molly in p5C, who entered the 500 word competition. Molly had to write a short story set 1000 years in the future. Molly was the Scottish winner and was presented with a trophy earlier this year. Fantastic writing skills Molly, what a star! 

A Fabulous Start to P5

We have had a great first week in Primary 5 and it was lovely to hear all about everyone’s summer holidays. We have spent this week thinking about our values and aims for the year ahead, discussing what is meant by ‘growth mindset’ and learning about our rights by looking at the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We have shown we can work effectively in groups and also produced some super independent work. Miss Pearmain and I can’t wait for the year ahead!
