A hectic Wednesday resulted in this rushed selfie! Wonderful costumes! Hope everyone had a super time guising!


Preston Street Pals

Lovely to see so many occasions where pupils from Preston Street and Sciennes have the opportunity to come together in a friendly environment.

Today’s Team Tennis Challenge – P6A –

Today P6A took part in a fantastic opportunity developing their skills in a team tennis challenge led by Ryan Harrower and his tennis development staff. The class worked with coaches to develop their imagination, agility and racquet skills, and had a lot of fun doing so.

The kiddies set a fantastic example and represented the school beautifully. It was a pleasure to see them all so happy and engaged, and working so well with one another. Story time was a nice quiet one too, with so many worn out bodies!

Muy bien, niΓ±os. Happy weekend.

P6 Construction Challenge

This afternoon P6 took on an engineering challenge: to construct a European landmark using just newspaper and tape. In mixed class groups they set about selecting a landmark and coming up with a plan for its construction. We think they did a fab job and were very impressed with the teamwork on display. Well done, P6. πŸ‘πŸ»

Maths Week Scotland. P6A

Despite a busy week this week, today we found a bit of time to take our maths work outdoors. We’ve been developing and consolidating our knowledge of multiples and factors recently so decided to play a little hopscotch… with a twist. Instead of simply counting the numbers, we used the game as an opportunity to practise finding the multiples of numbers we find more challenging. The wind made balancing a little tricky, but we enjoy an extra challenge in P6A πŸ˜€

Cycling Adventures in P6A

P6A had a fab day today putting their bike handling skills to the test on a cycling adventure to Colinton. We took off from school and cycled through The Meadows, along the Union Canal (stopping off for some bramble picking to refuel) until finally reaching our destination: Spylaw Park. All in all the kids managed a 10 mile round trip, which is very impressive, and were an absolute joy to be around.

Thanks for a great day out ❀️

(It was actually ten miles- I forgot to restart the recording- whoops!)

Bikeability in 6A

P6A enjoyed another fab day of cycling today, made even better by the glorious sunshine β˜€οΈ

After practising their road skills in the morning, the afternoon was spent adventuring along the innocent railway.

Next week (Wednesday for us) we’ll be heading for Colinton along the Union Canal. Practising shifting gears and signalling at junctions will be of huge benefit.

Well done kiddies πŸ‘πŸ»

Fun in the sun β˜€οΈ

This term in class we are reading Wonder, which is a story that we use to discuss themes such as kindness, friendship and inclusion. It also fits very well with our school values: respect, inclusion, teamwork and effort.

Today, at the children’s suggestion, P6A spent some time in the meadows where we focused on inclusion and playing together. It was lovely to hear the children inviting one another to play and encouraging each other in their games.

What a fab start to P6. Well done, kiddies.

P6 Bikeability


Just a little reminder to children and families that P6 Bikeability starts on Monday for P6A, Tuesday for P6B and Wednesday for P6C. The first session focuses on safety, bike checks, starting, stopping and signalling. The morning session will be spent in the playground building confidence before heading out on to quiet local streets. Please ensure that children are all appropriately dressed for the weather and that they come to school on their cycling day with a working bike, helmet and bike lock. We do have a limited number of bikes that we can lend out if needed.

Thank you for your support.
