Home Learning Week Commencing 23rd November

Hi Primary Six families,

I have uploaded the weekly summary grid with activities to consolidate learning at home. It would be fantastic to see examples of what you have been doing at home. These can be sent in with your child or emailed to

I have included the skill section of the JASS project as part of the home learning for this week. We will be working on recording this in school but time will also need to be dedicated to this at home. Your child could learn a new skill or continue working on one they already have. It could be as simple as helping to prepare the family meals or creating a project on something they are interested in. This can be evidenced by a picture or even a note from someone at home.

All the best!

Mr McPheely

Road Safety Week

Hello, we are the Junior Road Safety Officers. We need your help! We are trying to spread awareness about cycle safety and wearing helmets.

We have created a class challenge for you to take part in. There are four parts, can you complete them all? This will be discussed at assembly on Thursday 19th November. You have one week to complete the tasks. We wonder who will win the prizes… Good luck!

Yesterday at Assembly the House Captains revealed the winners of their Logo Competition.

Clara from The Arthur’s Seat Dragons, Julian from the Holyrood Royals, Fraser from the Parliament Pandas and Carla from the Castle Lions. Congratulations to you all!

Prizes included 10 HOUSEPOINTS and pen for secret messages!

Runners up received notebooks. Well done to everyone who tried – you might be the winner next time!

Black History Month

Throughout October we have been learning about famous and historical people of colour. We particularly focused on Mary Seacole and Rosa Parks and will be continuing our learning through our mini topic on the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and the British Empire. Please have a look at our poster and leave us a comment to say what you think.
