Midterm Break Ideas

Ahead of the midterm break we thought we would round up some of things you can do around Edinburgh to keep little minds occupied this October.





  • There are great family walks in and around Edinburgh. A good website for finding these is Walk Highlands .




Have fun in the holiday!


Diwali Celebration

We all had an amazing nursery and P1 Diwali celebration on Tuesday 10th October.

We were treated to a morning of singing, dancing, activities and food which was celebrated by many of our families at Dalry.

Thank you so much to all the families and pupils who performed and helped out.

Phonics Resources for Parents

We have recently added a new area to our parent zone pages hosting phonics resources for parents and carers to try out with their children at home.

You’ll find it here.

These resources include posters of all the letter sounds for you to work on reading and saying at home , great songs and videos to help learning and an audio catalogue of all the basic letter sounds.

When we teach in school we do so using the sounds of the letters rather than their names. We would encourage you to use these resources to help you to do the same at home.

Please check back to our phonics resources area often for new resources including common words (the, they, their etc) and digraphs of other common sounds in English (th, ck, sh etc).
