Thursday Assembly January 14th 2021

Hello and welcome to a very rainy Thursday in Edinburgh. I made my assembly last night – sitting in my house watching the snow fall! It was still there this morning when I left for school.

P.S any funny noises in the background are my 4 cats trying to get in on the action! Hope you enjoy it!

Stay safe

Hello January!

Hello, Happy New Year and welcome back to learning! We find ourselves again in unprecedented circumstances and working in new ways! Thank you so much for your understanding as Team Royal Mile gets to grips with learning in different places and in different ways!

We have tried very hard to take on all the comments made during the last school closures. We hope that you are finding it ok. It may yet change and evolve as we work together to get better at it.

We really want everyone to keep in touch so we have the page with class blogs and comments enabled, older pupils are using TEAMS as well and our youngest pupils are using Learning Journals. This time we are in our own building so during office hours (Mon- Thurs 8am – 4pm and Fri 8am- 1pm) you can reach us by phone 0131 556 3347 and email Please be aware that teaching staff may be supporting a group in school and may not answer messages until the following day.

We expect to hear and see everyone getting involve din learning. Next week we will be starting group chats and teachers will be checking in with every child in the class. If we don’t see you we will follow up and then may escalate this to other services. So -keep in touch!

I am really looking forward to FANTASTIC FRIDAYS! Let’s celebrate and show off just how brilliant Royal Milers are. Take care and look after yourselves and each other!
