It’s Walk to School Week 2018 – and we are taking part!
We are delighted to tell you that we are taking part in Living Streets’ Walk to School Week (21-25 May)!
This year’s five-day walking challenge for the week, Walking Roots, will take your little ones on an exploration of a tree’s ecosystem and will provide them with fun, educational activities that they can complete each day in school. At the end of the week, they’ll be rewarded with a packet of Living Streets’ sunflower seeds to grow and nourish at home.
We’d love for all our parents and carers to get involved because walking to school isn’t only fun it’s healthy too! We’ll be starting our activity diaries on Monday and sending them home on Friday. Inside these, there is plenty of information about how you can enter a prize draw and support Living Streets’ National Walking

What a fantastic day we had in North Affric today! The P5 and P6s from Glenurquhart learned a lot about estate management and how deer fit into the food cycle and wider eco-system. Many ate delicious venison burgers for their lunches (if you are wondering why there are uneaten sandwiches in their lunch boxes!)….though many […]
Our Eco Committee led an informative assembly telling us about Keep Scotland Beautiful’s roadside litter campaign. The campaign is calling for a week of action and for people to get involved by giving Litter a lift and taking it home!
We heard some shocking facts such as 50 tonnes of litter is collected from Scottish motorways each month ~ this is the same weight as 8 elephants! Over 100 bottles and cans are found for each mile of roadside in Scotland. Crisp and sweet wrappers are found by the side of 71% of Scotland’s roads. We were shocked to hear that 80% of marine litter starts its journey from the land.
P4 pupils (a.k.a The Litter Patrol) made a start to our week of action by litter picking our playground and path to school. They did a tremendous job!
Why don’t your family join in and litter pick a roadside near you to Keep Scotland Beautiful 🙂
Homework for tonight will be to explore the Apostrophes folder in Education City Homework folder. Further activities will be given out tomorrow to be completed over the next two weeks.
Our Scholastic Book Fair will be set up in Room 5 tomorrow night and during the day on Thursday. If you would like your child to buy a book/ poster or stationery item please order (forms will be available in Rm5) and pay for it tomorrow night. Alternatively, your child may do this on Thursday during the school day. The order will arrive promptly next week. Many thanks for your support. This will enable us to update our current reading book stock.
Homework this week is completing 2 games from each Education City Homework folder (Speech Marks and Fractions). We are also completing our final challenge in First Minister’s Reading Challenge. This is to read at least 2 titles from a series of books. P4/5 have been recommending series of books which they enjoy and this challenge may well take us to the summer holidays and beyond. Happy Reading!
