School Closure Preperation

Following the announcement of potential school closures we have been working as a team to prepare for home learning. Please find attached letter with information. If your child attended school today they will have been sent home with a home learning pack.

If your child is absent from school and you are not self-isolating you may collect your pack from the school office.

Please read the letter linked below with information on the packs. This letter was written earlier today before the official confirmation of school closure. Apologies that we have not had time to edit it to reflect the changing situation.

Keep following the website for more information.

Home Learning Information

Message from the Headteacher Re: COVID-19

We are following guidance from the NHS and are in communication with Edinburgh Council regarding the COVID-19 virus.

We are using NHS guidance for managing educational settings. I will keep you updated with any further information as I receive it.

There was a letter with some further information released in our last post today and which will also be sent home to parents.


Nursery Play on Pedals

We began our Play on Pedals lessons learning to ride Balance Bikes with our pre-school children.
We learned the names of the different parts of a bike – wheel, saddle, handlebars and break.  We practiced how to put on our helmets so that we can keep our heads safe.  Then we learned how to use the breaks, geet on the bikes and to glide along using ‘bunny feet’ which means using our two feet at the same time to push along and then stop using our break.  
We will continue our lessons on a regular basis.
