Label Your Clothes and Bring Appropriate Clothing

Image
Even unique style choices can get mixed up.

We’re only 3 days into term and we already have a mound of lovely, brand new, lost property building up.

Sadly lots of it is unlabelled so we can’t save you the trouble of searching and reunite it for you.

Please remember with uniform, and even without, many of the children have identical items of clothing so writing a name inside in permanent fabric marker, embroidering a name or sewing in a tag is vital.

Also please remember that a coat is vital every day with Edinburgh’s variable weather.

P1/2 and P2 Roots of Empathy News

P1/2 Miss McDermot’s class and P2 Miss McArthur’s class completed their Roots of Empathy program with instructor Mrs Harris-Toner. Each week the children enjoyed getting to know Baby Alan and seeing how he was changing and growing. We connected with our Roots of Empathy family through wonderful photos, videos, news and voice messages sent by his mum Jordan.


The lessons gave the children an opportunity to share their feelings and experiences. The children’s especially enjoyed the art activities and thinking of their wishes for Baby Alan as he grows up. Last week the children were delighted to receive their well deserved certificates. 

Van Gogh Sunflowers in P2

We have been very successfully growing sunflowers in our classroom this term. Already they are stretching high and reaching for all the sun we’ve had! Furthermore, we learned a bit about Vincent Van Gogh and recreated one of his most famous paintings ‘Sunflowers.’ 

Here are some examples of the wonderful sunflowers we painted and some very proud faces 😊
