What a busy week so far!


P3 have been working very hard this week.  We have been using our Target Time in the morning to work on our own personal targets.  We have introduced the novel The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and have been using this to develop the 6 main comprehension strategies.  We wrote lovely stories about Plop the baby barn owl this morning.  In maths we have been working on place value up to 1000 and we have started to get organised for our Christmas show!

Over the next few days the children will be bringing home more information about the Christmas show regarding costumes, words to learn, show times etc so please keep checking blue folders.

All children have been given a letter today about Christmas lunch.  This should be returned to school no later Thursday 30th November.



Can you help?


These pictures show what part of our learning zone looks like now!  We want to improve the space, making it family friendly and a comfortable space for parents and pupils to use.

Pupils in Miss Morton’s class are going to write to local companies to see if they can help us improve our…

Baillie Cup Stars!

Primary 2R

Last Thursday 26 children from P1-P4 took part in an athletics competition down at Queens Park. I am so proud of each and every one of them for their attitude, determination and team spirit. We came home with lots of medals and Crown as a team came third overall. It really was a great day, competition can be hard for children at this age but everyone stepped up to the mark, did their best and did everyone proud. 

I just want to say thank you to all the wonderful parent helpers. We really couldn’t have done it without you. You are all superstars and myself and Mrs McCormick really appreciated the support. 

Have a look at the little stars in action and if you haven’t already got a copy some of the little stars made it into the Courier this week!
