Playground News

We are all so excited about our new playground. Last session we were awarded just over £7000 from the National Lottery Awards for All grants scheme and have worked closely with playground developers Scotplay to design and create all the markings and equipment for our new playground.

The Victorian Schoolroom

Primary 4/5 visited the Victorian Schoolroom at Leith Walk Primary School last week. The children dressed up in traditional Victorian schoolchildren’s clothes and got to sit at real Victorian desks with inkwells. Miss Campbell and Miss Hickman had to dress up too because they were pretending to be P7s! We all learnt about Victorian punishments – some children were very glad that we don’t have the cutty chair or wiggle board nowadays!

Views of the Outdoor Classroom


Our outdoor classroom is looking fantastic! The willows and the other planting has really matured over the holidays and we are learning how to take care of it. It is a quiet, chill out space with lots of seats and a few performance areas! 

We look forward to developing it more as an outdoor learning space this session. 

Tale of a Tall Ship

Last Friday, P2 were lucky enough to visit and go on a tall ship that is docked at Ocean Terminal. The ARC Gloria is a navy ship from Colombia and is one of the tallest ships of it's kind! We were split into small groups and one of the ship's crew gave us a personalised tour. We practised our Spanish by saying 'ola' and 'gracias' to all the shipmates we saw. We saw the tall masts and the huge sails - all which have different names. We went up to the bow of the ship and it was very windy!

Bubble Room News!

We are so happy with our new and improved Bubble Room!  Miss Herbert and Miss Cowley have done an AMAZING job to get it back looking great and we are thankful to the PTA for funding the revamp for us.  Please have a look at the photos to see the results.

This seems like the perfect opportunity to give this newly revamped space in our school a new name. We hope to organise a competition to let the children decide what this will be.  More details on this idea will be available soon!
