Pupils and staff at Millbank had a wonderful day on Friday and raised a fantastic £350.14 for Children in Need!

Thank you to all the pupil council representatives who helped to run the day so smoothly. Our older reps did a great job of reading “Pudsey’s Great Fundraiser’ to the younger classes, while some primary sixes helped to take photos of pupils with their crazy hair/yellow clothes!

There were lots of Pudsey-related activities across the school including a school competition. P1-3 decorated Pudsey and gave him crazy hair, while P4-7 had an ‘open’ category where they redesigned Pudsey bear however they wanted. There are so many fantastic entries and i’m sure it will be hard for the pupil council to choose a winner for both age groups!

Once again, thank you everyone for supporting Children in Need and your very generous donations – we are immensely proud to have raised such a great sum of money.

Here are a selection of photos from Children in Need 2018 at Millbank.


Primary 1 have been having a fantastic day.  They were all super excited to get their photo taken with Pudsey and listened so well to the Pudsey story which Isla from Primary 7 read to them – thank you Isla!  They have been busy making Pudsey headbands, painting Pudsey, reading stories to him and giving him some crazy hair.  Well done everyone!


An-diugh, bha sinn uabhasach trang. Am-measg tòrr obair eile, seo sinn a’ dèanamh lùth-chleasachd ann am spòrs. Chaidh sinn thairis air dìofar gluasadan agus dìofar dòighean airson ar bodhaig a’ gluasad. Chòrd na stèiseanan dhuinn gu mòr. Cuideachd, thàinig GM4-7 airson leughadh còmhla. ‘S e deagh cothrom a tha seo airson ag obair ri chèile agus cuideachd airson a’ brosnachadh na sgillean leughaidh againn.

We had an extremely busy day today! Alongside lots of other work here is some of what we were up to today. After break we worked at some new gymnastic shapes, we went round different stations and used our bodies in many different ways! At times it was tricky but we had lots of fun! After lunch, GM4-7 came in for paired reading. This is a great opportunity for us to work together and also give is time to develop our reading skills. Mrs Coutts

The pupil council have been working very hard to organise Children in Need 2018.

Children have the option to wear something yellow and/or crazy hair tomorrow. Can we ask that pupils do not wear football strips as this can cause issues. We look forward to seeing everyone’s craziest hair and outfits!

Please bring a donation for Children in Need if you can. Have a look at a few of our pupil council and P2’s fantastic posters which are placed around the school.

Thank you for your help with our fundraising,

The children in Primary 1 have been busy, in the classroom and outdoors, showing what they know about numbers.  They have been sorting and ordering numbers and counting in many different ways.  There is a huge amount of talking about number going on and the learning is fantastic.  We have heard things like:

“I have 3; I need 2 more to make 5.”

“If there is one gap on a ten-frame it means we have 9.”

“3 groups of 6 makes 18.”

Well done Primary 1; I am so impressed by your enthusiasm for learning!

P6/7M were lucky enough to have Dionne teach us some dance this morning. We all really enjoyed it. Here are some pictures.


Chleachd GM1-3 na iPads agus na compiutarean airson rannsachadh a dhèanamh air na beathaichean a tha a’ fuireach anns an Arctaig agus Antarctica. Uaireanan bha e doirbh dealbhan a’ lorg agus fhuair sinn a-mach gu bheil tòrr diofar beathaichean annta. Cha robh fhios againn mu dheidhinn an ‘sea cucumber’ a tha a’ fuireach san Antarctica! Bha e uabhasach eibhinn!

Today we used the iPads and computers to learn about the different animals that live in the two polar regions. At times it was tricky but we found out about a lot of strange animals – especially the ‘sea cucumber’ that lives in Antarctica! It was very funny!
