Our P5 violinists are doing great work in their lessons.
Their persistence and practice is really paying off and they are starting to use musical notation.
Well done and keep bowing!

Well done Matt on some brilliant writing and good luck in the next part of the competition.
The grand total raised for the school at the book fair was £353.81

Scottish Book Trust Schools Event with Joseph Coelho
Thursday 22nd February
Joseph Coelho will be in school to see children in from P4-P7.
Joseph is a performance poet and playwright who is “a fresh new voice in children’s poetry”. He works tirelessly to dispel the view that poetry is “boring” with his fun and exciting poetry.
Following the event Joseph will sign copies of his books. If your child already owns copies please get them to bring them along to be signed.
Your child can also buy copies of Joseph Coelho’s books on the day (see attached letter for prices).
Children are under no obligation to buy books but if you would like them to we are able to accept cash and cheques (please make them out to Scottish Book Trust).
