It’s been a glorious week with the weather, and what a week for our P.7s to be at their residential at Lagganlia. Our assembly on Monday was about our Vision, Values and Aims and our learning environment.
The pop in cooking class after school on Tuesday was popular. Children have also been baking sweet potato scones with Miss Huhtinen and Mrs Storr which were very tasty.
Our morning 2 year olds visited Gorgie Farm on Tuesday with the afternoon 2 year olds visiting on Wednesday. P.2A and P.3A visited the National Museum of Scotland on Wednesday to learn about the Vikings. Many thanks to the parents/carers who volunteered their time to ensure the trip could go ahead.
During Community Learning Team time today, groups were working on activities related to being responsible. We also had a ‘Bingo Ball’ group who met with Miss Houliston. Today it was the child from each class who is 7th on their class’ register, and they were planning Sports Day which is due to take place, weather permitting, on Friday 8th June starting at 10 a.m., at the Parade Ground next to the Holyrood Park Education Centre.

We also have some Danish visitors in school on Thursday morning. They are part of a group of delegates who are visiting Edinburgh schools. As part of our consultation work on our vision for our school and creating a first class learning centre, there will be opportunities for parents/carers to have a tour of the school on Thursday at 9.15 a.m. – 10.15 a.m. and on Friday 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. Reports will be sent home to parents/carers on Friday, and in the envelope will be the allocated time for Parents’/Carers’ consultations so please check the envelope for it.
Enjoy the long weekend and the sunshine.
