Primary 7 went to Murieston Park for outdoor learning. They took part in an autumn scavenger hunt and played some games.
P2 have been enjoying learning a variety of new playground games with Ricky, our Active Schools co-ordinator, every Thursday. We have been practising these games during our Tuesday PE lesson and we are going to use these games in the playground during snack and lunch, so that our playtime is safe and fun!
The SSE Scottish Women’s Cup is coming to Edinburgh on Sunday 24th of November. The final is between Glasgow City and Hibernian at Tynecastle Park for a 16:10 KO.
Active Schools and the event organisers, Scottish Women’s Football (SWF), are offering free tickets to all schools within Edinburgh. Under 12’s go free already, so this a great chance for parents, guardians, and other family members to also come along at no cost.
Later today we will be sending out an email via parentmail with a special code you will be able to use on the website https://scotwomensfootball.com/about/the-sse-scottish-womens-cup/free-tickets/.
SWF has also created unique player cards to showcase some of the star players involved in the event. These will hopefully further inspire our children and be a nice collectable to promote the women’s game. These will be passed out in due course.
