Back to the Future?
P567 enjoyed an interesting visit to Berwick Barracks as part of their mini history topic as they learn about The Battle of Flodden.
Pupils in P1 and P7 were visited by NHS Borders Dental team this week who carried out their annual dental screening. Parents will be contacted by the team directly if any follow-up is required.
Next week we will be having our Achievement Assembly on Monday. This is our regular opportunity for pupils to share recent successes and reasons to feel proud. Please help your child consider what they could share with their peers.
PE next week
As a slight change, PE will be on Monday and Tuesday next week. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school for both of these days. Thank you
Thanks to Drone Hill Windfarm Foundation, our pupils will be enjoying a professional storyteller experience next week. Visiting the school on Tuesday, pupils from nursery through to P7 will be ‘swept away’ to another land where their imaginations can run free!
Please make sure your child has a water bottle in school. Remaining hydrated is an important factor in improving learning. Thank you.

This week we have laid out our loose parts to ake a balance triangle. It is tricky to move around.
Primary 2 have been learning about what doubles are. It is when you have two numbers the same. Like a 2 and a 2. Yesterday we made a den outside out of wooden planks. We also played a game called princesses. We have been cooking with vegetables like Kale and potato. We made kale and potato soup. We have been learning about China because it was Chinese New Year.
This Thursday, our class visited the Berwick Barracks, for our topic, The Battle of Flodden. We found it very interesting! We did a lot of different things, but most people had the most fun trying to find treasures and bones, in a ‘grave’ of soil. We figured out who had died, and why, and some of us had to work really hard to find anything, but either way, it was really enjoyable.
In P.E, we’re working on football, which was really different, and fun.
