The children, parents and staff had great fun in the pool at Dalry Swim Centre on Thursday 10th May and Thursday 17th May.

For some children it was their very first time swimming.  Everyone really enjoyed playing with the toys and floats and learning to kick our legs and move our arms in the water at the same time.  There are several Swim Centres in the city run by Edinburgh Leisure.  The summer holiday is a great time to book swimming lessons and help your child to develop their swimming skills.

Gorgie Farm trip for the Nursery

The nursery enjoyed the arrival of Spring at Gorgie Farm.  We saw goats, ducks, sheep, and lots of pigs and chickens!  We even bought chicken eggs and made them into egg sandwiches for our snack the next day. A BIG ‘Thank You’ to all the parents who helped us make this trip and made it such a great day out.

The farm is a great place for families to visit and is just 10 minutes from the school, along Gorgie Road.  Their lovely café is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

P3 Loose Parts Introduction

Primary 3 were learning about the world through creative play during their loose parts play session this week. We saw some engineers, explorers, inventers, beauticians, builders and problem solvers to name but a few!

Loose parts introductory sessions are going on throughout the school at present as we roll out our loose parts play programme.
