Second Level Summer Grid

To all primary 5, 6 & 7 children and families,

Thank you to all of your for your patience and hard work during the school closure. We hope that the grids and resources posted over the closure period have been useful and enjoyable. It has been great to hear from so many of you and see that fantastic work you have been doing at home.

For the primary fives and sixes it will be great to see you back in August and for the sevens we wish you all the best for high school and the future.

Attached is a summer grid with different activities and resources you can use to keep yourselves entertained over the holidays.

Have a fantastic summer and see you soon.

Happy Holidays!

Dear Parents and Carers, young people and families,

I cannot believe the end of session has arrived. It has certainly been a strange last term for everyone and we have all had to find new ways to work together and stay connected.

We are still waiting for the final decision about August but please be assured that we have plans, contingency plans and contingency contingency plans all worked out so that we can send you information as soon as we are advised by City of Edinburgh to do so. It is important to follow the guidance as we take the route map out of lockdown and listen to reports in the news and particularly check the CEC website.

A big thank you to all the staff at Royal Mile, school and Nursery, for their commitment and dedication to keeping everyone busy with great learning activities and some opportunities for fun!

Thank you to the office team, who have helped keep communication moving, delivered food parcels and ipads, queued at post offices and maintained a cheerful disposition!

Thank you to all the families at Royal Mile who have supported the school and helped their children to engage with learning. For all the email messages, blog comments and photographs that have made us smile and feel connected, thank you.

This evening I will be saying farewell to Primary 7 and wishing them all the best at High School, thanks to CYP and Zoom.

Then tomorrow I will be in school to finish off a few office jobs and take a last walk round. In August it will look very different without the scaffold and the builders.

In the meantime, please stay safe and well. Enjoy the sunshine and take care.

Mrs Jessop

Final Wow Wednesday of Primary 6

To All Primary 6 Children and Families,

This will the the final Wow Wednesday post of this year. I wanted to start by saying a massive thank you to all of you, children and families, who have worked through such an unprecedented and unexpected this year. Your resilience, patience and understanding has been incredible and humbling. Thank you to all the children who have been continuing your learning at home and have taken the opportunity to learn in new and interesting ways. Some of the projects that you have taken on have been incredible. I also want to say a huge thank you to all of the adults at home who have supported your children with their learning, many of you while juggling your own work commitments.

It has been great to speak to all of you at some point during the school closure time, either on the phone or out and about. It has been fantastic hearing what you have been up to.

I have included examples of just some of the fantastic work which was sent in for this final post. But I have also included some of the highlights of this year, from our VR tour of the Old Town with the Fruitmarket Gallery to the Risk Factory trip, we have done so much this year. I hope the pictures will bring a smile to your faces, it did mine when I was putting them together.

For many of you this is my second year teaching you and I would like to say how much I have enjoyed teaching and getting to know all of you (children and families). I have missed all of you and although next year I won’t be your class teacher I am looking forward to seeing all of you back.

Have a fantastic summer!

Mr McPheely

So here is a little virtual end of session WOW Wednesday that I hope you will all enjoy! https://sway.office.com/Ns6ZcP1DyrTqPuga?ref=email&loc=play
