Cricket Assembly

This morning Neil Cameron came from Cricket Scotland to share information about All Stars Cricket Programme. The children really enjoyed the assembly finding out about cricket. Some of the staff were asked to take part in some challenges too. What a great way to start the week!

The All Stars programme is for 5-8 year olds and starts 15th May. You can visit the website at to find out more.

Our P6 class are going to be given cricket taster sessions this term from the All Stars Cricket Community Coach.

  3. We ate a lot of cake! A big thank you for the two sets of cakes that came in for Zuzanna and Isla’s birthdays.
  4. We had great fun round at the Northern Meeting Park on Friday morning trying out for The Baillie Cup running competition. The sun was shining and everybody managed to run round the cricket pitch twice.
  5. Alec and Caleb have been running round the playground at break times to be healthy and have managed to do 60 laps-what energy!
  6. We had a lovely poetry writing lesson about The Signs of Spring and there were lots of lovely descriptions written. Here is James’ poem.

The Signs of Spring

No snow for now,

It is more sunny every day.

Flowers are growing everywhere and they are beautiful.

Hedgehogs and bears are coming out of hibernation.

Tweeting birds are in the trees.

Butterflies are flying.

Bunnies are hopping out of their dens.

Leavers are growing back.

Lambs are born and they are cute.

Bees and wasps are flying about.

Grass is growing longer.


We have enjoyed our Easter Holidays and looking forward to our last term in P1. Our term Topic is the Seashore and this week we did some mind maps on what we know already about the seashore. See how good we are at writing and drawing. This week we have also being learning the Jolly Phonics sounds: oi and ou. Words we know that have these sounds in them are: ‘oi’-foil, oil, boil & ‘ou’ – Ouch!, cloud, found, out, sour, shout and sound.

We have been learning about connectives. We know that these are words that join 2 sentences together. Some of the connectives we know are: and, but, because, so and or.


Playground Development Day

Yesterday we had a Playground Development Day where the Eco Committee worked with Clare from Grounds for Learning, Mrs Murray and parent volunteers to improve our garden area. It was a lovely day outside and the garden is looking great.

Thank you to all involved.
