P7 at Benmore

Although the weather wasn’t quite as kind to us in the afternoon yesterday, we all had a great time. There was a very muddy mountain biking session which Mr Law enjoyed, (even though he hadn’t been on a bike for 10 years!) climbing and abseiling, orienteering, gorge walking and even caving, which although wasn’t on our programme some children had the chance to do as it was a bit too windy for canoeing and everyone loved!

In the evening the we played a game of ‘Hunt the Teacher’. All of the staff hid outside in the dark around the centre and the children had to work in teams and find them, collecting information from them to obtain a secret code. What we are most impressed with is the way all of the children from the two classes are mixing and the amazing team work they are demonstrating. We are all looking forward to the disco tonight and getting our glad rags on instead of our red waterproofs!

We will be back 1:30/2pm tomorrow and Mrs Scott will text you all with our expected arrival time and any changes tomorrow.


French Week

French Week was a great success with all classes focussing on speaking French throughout the week and learning about life in France. On Thursday, the hall was transformed into a Parisian square with each class taking a responsibility for leading a different area…all in French! There was a boules lesson, cafe, tourist information office, souvenir shop, travel agency and even bingo! ‘Merci beacoup’ to all of the parents that came along and to the children who made it a great success.

Sports Day 2017

Well done to all of the boys and girls for their efforts today at Sports Day. We sprinted, jumped, welly wanged and sack raced and the weather thankfully held. A big thank you to our P7s who helped out at this morning’s Infant Sports Day and an extra special thank you to Mr Huggard who organised the whole day!


Keep Connected- Building Resilience

On Friday we had our second sharing assembly as part of the Building Resilience project. The children shared their brilliant work which has been happening in classes all over the school. The main things we have been learning are:

  • Relationships are important for our health and wellbeing
  • Belonging to a group can be a good way to build friendships
  • Good relationships are a two way thing

From puppet shows to story telling, cartoons to creating jigsaws, musical performances to recipes; check out the brilliant work the children have created!

Big Pedal Breakfast

Thank you to the 200 of you that came along for Breakfast to mark the end of The Big Pedal. Our Junior Road Safety Officers did a fantastic job organising the food and running the event. We were just pipped into 2nd place in Edinburgh but came a very impressive 16th in the whole of Scotland with over 40% of our school population cycling and scooting to school over the two weeks. Well done everyone who took part!
