Forest School

Monday 9th March was our latest Forest School Day at Fairy Gate Wood. All pupils and staff walked to the wood and after the health and safety checks,  took part in a fun filled day.

The pupils made popcorn over the campfire, built giant nests and created journey story sticks. Lunch was enjoyed around the campfire. This was followed by marshmallow toasting. At the end of the day there was time for freeplay which is always a big hit.

A big tidy up and then the walk home. It was a cold day but the children were too busy and well clad to even notice!

P4-7 travelled to Lanark Race Course to take part in the annual Small School Cross Country event. The whole team had been training well and did their very best on the day. Well done to everyone.

The P7  team of boys got the gold medal and the P7 team of girls got the bronze medal. Well done to them!

All that hard work was worth it.

The Lion King

The whole school went to the Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh to watch the musical The Lion King. The children had been doing lots of fundraising to pay for the event. They had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the show. A big thank you to everyone who donated to their fundraising activities.
