P1 have been busy counting whilst outside.  They searched for some objects to match the number they had.  There was lots of talking about numbers happening!

Here are some photos from P6/7M today. We were finishing off looking at the start of WW1 by role playing different countries and creating alliances. This helped us see some of the reasons countries ended up involved in the war after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.

Tha a’ chiad seachdainean aig GM1 air a bhith gu mhath gnìomhail agus an t-seachdain sa chaidh rinn iad tòrr obair air na àireamhan aca. Cuideachd, bha ùine aca na iPads a’ cleachdadh airson geamanan cunntais a’ cluich. Abair spòrs!

GM1 have had a very busy few weeks! Last week we did lots of work on our numbers and also had some time to play counting games on the iPads! Great work!

Bha GM 2&3 trang ag obair air na suimean uiread aca! Chleachd sinn diofar rudan airson cuideachach a thoirt dhuinn. Bha e uabhasach sporsail agus thuirt cuid gun robh “nas fhasa na bha iad a smaointinn”. Sgoinneil!

GM 2&3 have been busy working on their multiplication sums. We used different resources to help us and some also said that it was “much easier than they thought”. Great news!

These are some photos from our shoe box show and tell challenge. The children were asked to decorate a shoe box and fill it with 6 objects that mean a lot to them, toys, photos etc.

We are off to a great start in primary 6/7M this session. Here are some of the things we’ve been getting up to. (Sorry no pictures due to technical difficulties – will put some up next week)

We have been looking at data handling in maths, conducting our own surveys and producing graphs of what we found. We have also been looking at reading information from the charts and what it all means.

In ICT we have been using spreadsheets to record our data and then make charts from them. We have also been looking at using computers to make simulations and why this is important.

Our IDL topic this year is WW1 and we looked at some of the factors leading up to it, with a few people taking on the roles of different countries!

Here are some quotes about this week;

“Writing was lots of fun when I can design my own character” – Will

“In PE I liked being on the benches running and having to jump over things. We had to work as a team and show leadership.” – Ella

“It was fun learning about making bar charts on the chromebooks.” – Lennon

“I liked playing Colin’s coffee to learn about simulations in ICT” – Lucia


Have a good weekend!

Mr MacDonald

Welcome back to all our children and parents, I hope you are all settling back into the routine of nursery! As you know we have changed to the flexible model so it has been a bit different over the last three weeks. Thank you for your patience while we all get used to the new system. The children who stay all day have been enjoying going to the canteen for lunch with the rest of school – lots of hugs and high fives as siblings and friends are spotted.

Within the nursery we are all getting to know each other and are practising our talking and listening skills. We have had considerable interest in dinosaurs expressed so will be doing some dinosaur discovery work too. We have been taking advantage of the continuing good weather and have been spending as much time as possible outside building houses cooperatively with friends and taking turns with the bikes and buggies.


Our ELC bear – named Honey – has started visiting children at home, we look forward to hearing about her adventures and will have them up on display within the nursery soon. Honey will come and visit everyone at home and is very excited about this! Our photo gallery is starting to fill up too so please feel free to pop into the room and take a look. Also within the cloakroom are certificates for those special moments at home and at nursery. Fill them in and give them to us and we will celebrate these moments and pop the certificates up on the display wall!


Thank you!


From all the ELC staff!

It’s been an exciting time in Primary 1.  Everyone has settled in well to school and all the children are finding out all about the school routine.  It’s been a busy time with lots of playing and learning about numbers and words.  We have done some work in the outdoor classroom and we have been practising writing names and numbers.  We have listened to lots of stories and everyone loves story time!  Playtime and lunchtime are exciting and the P6 buddies and P7 prefects are great helpers.  No wonder everyone is tired by Friday!

Primary 6 have been focused on using adjectives this week to help improve our writing. We had the chance to go outside to explore the garden and find objects to describe with our partners. We found some fantastic objects like conkers, feathers, flowers and even a nest with some interesting eggs! We were lucky enough to find some insects and bugs, like earwigs and ladybugs to describe too.
