They had great fun last Monday playing in a friendly mini tournament. They worked well as a team and show good sportsmanship.

If you are in P5-7 and would like to join the netball club then please see Miss Whitefield or Miss Carter for a letter. 


Primary 4 Built a Roman Road

Posted on Updated on

Primary 4 had great fun learning about how the Romans built their roads. After they learnt about the different layers and the materials that were used, it was time to build their own Roman Roads.

The children used various healthy foods to construct their road. They used grapes as the large rocks of the foundations, muesli as the small stones and pebbles used to fill in the gaps. Natural yoghurt and raisins as the concrete with broken stones and tiles then finally sliced apple as the cobble stones on top.

“This is Roman Triffle!” Nikolaos

“It smells delicious!” Jude

“It smells Romanlicious!” Aaron

“It tastes like weetabix mixed with grapes” Maddi

“It tastes like paradise!” Adan

“We learned how to make great food.” Kebba

“We learnt how to have a healthy diet and in a fun way how to build a Roman road.” Nikolaos

“We made the layers of food to see how the Romans built the roads.” Ali



Building Resilience – Talk Things Over 

Posted on

This term we will be launching our next unit of our Health and Wellbeing Resilience programme. This unit is called Talk Things Over. Life can be full of ups and downs. Feeling worried is a normal reaction when faced with a challenge or a setback. When we worry, things go round and round in our head. If these feelings are not dealt with, they can sometimes get out of control. However the good news is, that eventually these feelings will pass. Through this unit, children will learn how worries affect our wellbeing and what we can do to deal with them to stop them escalating. We will be focussing on the following three key messages throughout this unit:• At times we all feel worried

• If worries are not dealt with, they can sometimes get out of control

• If you are struggling, it is important to ask for help

Please look out for parent/carer information leaflets as they will be sent out shortly. P2-P7 pupils will have short tasks to complete with their family too.
