Lonely Giant's party

Here are the pupils of P1-3. They are at a birthday party for the Lonely Giant. You can see they are all raising their glasses to say cheers. They had the party as part of their Fairyland Topic. Every week they read a different book and do lots of fun activities. Watch this space for more photos of what they have been up to.


Fruit Troops

fruit troops

P1-4 has been working on an enterprise topic this week. They created a company “Fruit Troops” which provided tubs of fruit for sale every playtime this week. They prepared the fruit tubs and took orders before selling them to staff and pupils at playtimes. The money raised will go in the “Lion King” pot.Well done P1-4.

Military Museum

On Monday 17th February P4-7 pupils travelled to Wilkieston to visit the Military Museum as part of their topic on World War Two.

The pupils and staff had a great day there. After an initial look around the museum the pupils did an alphabet quiz. This involved them looking around the museum for clues. After lunch the pupils were able to try on real gas masks and handle weapons. This was great fun for the pupils.

This was a fabulous outing and the pupils got lots of information to help them with their topic.

Plenty Twenties in 2020

The pupils are looking forward to a trip to see The Lion King on the 4th March. The pupils are finding interesting and enterprising ways to help them raise the funds for the trip. So far there has been a Tabletop Sale and a Roald Dahl Day Book Sale and Coffee Morning.

This term, the pupils have each been given a Smartie tube. They are trying to fill it with 20p coins. Full, a Smartie tube holds over £12.00. The pupils are motivated and are thinking of ways  to earn the 20p coins.

We would be very grateful to anyone who is willing to save 20ps for us.

RHET Tractor Visit

On Tuesday 18th June the pupils visited Abington Primary to take part in a Fun Day. The first part of the day was to see a tractor dressed as a cow. It had visited lots of schools, had raised lots of money and was on it’s way to the Royal Highland Show at Ingliston. The children learned lots about the tractor and even got to sit inside it. There was also a highland cow and calf to see, pat and ask questions about. It was a great day. Each school had to make up a suitable name for the tractor and every pupil entered a colouring competition.
