Hello everyone,

Primary 5 have been working hard this week.

In Reading the children are enjoying finding out what Bradley is up to in our novel There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom. We have been finding information in the text about what the characters look like and then drawing them. The children then identified what the qualities of a good friend and have produced excellent posters to highlight these.

In writing the children were learning how to write a letter and set it out correctly. They wrote a letter from Carla to Bradley to persuade him to visit her. There were lots of good reasons about why Bradley should visit. We are continuing with the letter writing theme next week.

In PE lessons the children are learning hockey skills. This week they focused on passing the ball and dribbling. They are getting better at controlling the ball and not having to run after it so much!

We have started French lessons with the children. They have learned to introduce themselves and ask questions about others age and name. We have some talented French speakers already.

In ICT the children have been looking at how to keep safe when using the internet and discussing the various sites they use. All children now have computer and Glow logins. It would be good if they could log in and leave a message in the playground channel on our TEAMS page.

In maths we have been exploring time and symmetry. In Time lessons we are currently working on converting analogue time to digital time. Some of the children are finding this quite challenging. In symmetry lessons we have been using mirrors to find the lines of symmetry in a variety of shapes.


The children have chosen a book to read for enjoyment and it would be appreciated if you could continue to encourage your child to read for enjoyment at home.

Outdoor PE- Tuesday

Outdoor PE-Thursday

Please ensure the children have the correct kit for going outdoors- trainers, trackies/joggers, t-shirt and fleece/hoodie. They can come to school wearing their PE kit but a school jumper must be worn during the day. They can then change into their outdoor jumper when we go outside.


Have a lovely weekend and thank you for your continued support.

Have a good weekend

Mrs Gilmour, Miss Munro and Mrs Muir
