St Bride’s centre, our local community centre, will be running a breakfast club for parents and carers after school drop off starting on Monday 13th of May.

The sessions aim to offer support through both chat with other parents and carers and also useful training in first aid and other skills for parents.

Our Fabulous Early Level Playground

After a lovely Easter Break and some truly FANTASTIC weather all the children have settled happily back at nursery.  They have been keen to help staff set up and then enjoy some of our lovely new resources including a very special and relaxing story house, a refurnished creative area, a brand new mud kitchen, our very own water wall and lots of other smaller, but wonderful, items such as an outdoor clock and new tools and utensils for our sand, planting and mud kitchen areas.  And we now  have a great BIG shed to store everything safely overnight, during the weekends and holidays!

The children have been involved in every stage of the planning, selection and  the layout of their playground and monies from the school’s outdoor learning fund, and the very generous donations you all make to our toy fund, which enabled us to purchase these items.

Finally, we would all like to thank the children, staff, and our janitor Mrs Smith for her help and in particular Mr Fituch, dad of Matylda (in the nursery) and Nell (Primary 4) for all his time and hard work!

P2 Space Outing

P2 enjoyed a brilliant visit to the National Museum of Scotland to complete their Soace topic.
The children touched ancient meteorites, saw an enormous telescope and completed the Space trail challenge.
We managed to fit in a look at the other amazing exhibits too.
It was a great end to the term!
