We know that we have an amazing community at Craiglockhart but we were completely overwhelmed with the amount of people who turned up this morning and helped us to clear the playground. You are all superheroes. Thank you!
Thank you so much to all of the P2 and P3 parents and carers that came along this morning to participate in our Read, Write, Count Launch and Gifting Party, the children were absolutely delighted so many of you could attend and it was standing room only in the back of the hall! We loved sharing the Read, Write, Count activities we had been doing in class but the highlight for all of us was opening the presents to find out we all had our very own bag full of books and resources to use at home with our parents. And of course a party is not a party without cake so we had some of that too! Once again thank you to the teachers involved and to our amazing community for such a turn out.
BRILLIANT NEWS! Yesterday our amazing Sporthall team of P6 and 7 children attended the East of Scotland Sportshall Final having previously qualified in the Edinburgh round.
After months of hard work in their own time by the children and their superb coach Mr Sweet we are delighted to say that we won the championship! The children have worked so hard and it is a very well deserved victory. Congratulations, we are so proud of you all!
The children from the Pupil Parliament voted and we chose our winning photo. Check this out for an imaginative reading venue!
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.
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!
Having applied for Food for Thought funding last year, we were awarded £3000. We bought tonnes of gardening equipment, fruit trees and herbs and have developed our Centenary Garden into a sensory garden, full of wonderful smells! Some of our P6s and 7s helped clear the beds and P5A planted all of the new plants, some of them even working on into the evening at After School Club. It looks wonderful and we hope we can use some of the produce in our own teaching kitchen.
