Our Easter Assembly this year was all about hope. Everyone in school has written messages of hope and wishes to keep us all going during the pandemic as restrictions start to slowly lift. We hope you enjoy reading these as you go past school over the next few weeks.
Happy Easter from everyone at school! We hope everyone has a lovely break over the holidays. Our Easter Bonnets were once more absolutely amazing! A lovely colourful end of term!
Things are still really tough for families just now. Information on the free or low cost activities and support available in Edinburgh can be downloaded from www.edinburgh.gov.uk/pacs
If you feel you or your child is struggling and need support email email@example.com and a member of our friendly team will get back to you.
We enjoyed a fun day in school today celebrating Comic Relief with a joke telling session and raising £237.00 in the process. Thank you to everyone for supporting this great cause by wearing red, telling a joke or donating money. We hope you all enjoy the show.
It was lovely to have everyone back in school day! The classrooms were a hive of activity and the playground a busy buzz of games, noise and laughter in the Spring sunshine!
Congratulations to Abi who created a map for our ‘Where’s Wally’ hunt and decided to dress up to complete the trail!
Our P1 and P2 classes are loving their new big blocks and are building some amazing structures.
Congratualtions to Aadithin P2 and his little brother Ainesh who are the first to completed our ‘Where’s Wally Trail’!
We wanted to share these beautiful metaphor poems some of our P5s wrote with you.
The sun is big, bright and hot.
It shines light down to earth
And makes our plants grow.
It lights up the vacuum of space
And its rays illuminate the planets around.
It makes people happy all year round.
When I am happy, I am the sun.
By Toby, P5A
The warm sun is low in the sky, sun beams point to the different trees below.
Each tree is unique and rises to the sky, tall and strong.
The lush green grass is velvet to touch.
The muddy path weaves in and out, leading to the unknown.
When I am peaceful, I am the stillness of the forest.
By Lucas, P5B
The Sunny Wood
The golden path shimmers like a star.
Cheerful sunbeams light up the wood, bringing warmth all around.
Peaceful trees stretch up to the sky as if they are giants.
Leaves dance in the gentle breeze, swaying from side to side.
The grass is a fresh green carpet tickling my toes.
When I am happy, I am a sunny wood.
By Claire, P5B
What a beautiful little wave.
So shimmery and fun.
Looks cool and wet, it goes well with the sun.
The wave is so summery, and the shape is a circle.
So nice and blue, like a reflection of the sky
When I am Excited, I am a wave.
By Kacie, P5A.
The waves’ water is a see-through blue.
Whales swimming in the ocean.
Ripples in the sand.
Waves crashing through,
Surfers surf the wave of the very shiny blue.
The wave is a cloud, hard and soft.
Its shiny surface is a blue sun in the sea.
Dolphins jumping silently, side by side.
The seaweed is a snake, just harmless.
The deep sea is a night,
Blacker than black.
The sea is a jewel shining bright,
Like the sun.
When I am excited I am a wave.
By Cici, P5A.
The ocean’s waves
Are as sharp as a rhino’s horn.
And the surface
Is as sparkly as the stars in sky.
Under the ocean
It is as busy as a train in rush hour,
Because it is a home
For lots of different types of animals.
The ocean is blue
Just as the blue sky.
It is just as big as Pluto.
When I am busy, I am an ocean.
By Brodie, P5A.
The waterfall creates
Lush plants and life.
The water rushes,
And drifts down the stream.
It is loud and cold,
But it can be quiet and warm.
The water flows,
Breaking off into different directions.
In the sun the water is transparent,
Revealing the rock formations behind it.
When I am relaxed, I am a waterfall.
By Tymek, P5A.
Round like the sun
They fly round and round
Up high to the light.
Bubbles float in the sky
So high they
I am a bubble.
By Arran, P5A.
Floating in the air,
As if they are dancing.
Light shining through,
They are clear balls in the sky.
Bumping into each other,
As if they are in a funfair.
Slowly coming down,
Ready to catch,
They are balloons that go pop!
When I am distracted, I am a bubble.
When I am calm, I am a bubble.
By Katie, P5A.
This blanket is fluffy and warm,
A bear hug in the middle of a storm.
There’s nothing to do,
Our hearts are blue,
The storm will pass
But this bear hug will last.
The world is asleep
And everything is crazy.
When I am lazy, I am a blanket.
By Lexi, P5A.
The child is serene – obsessively watching Stampy Cat.
The blanket, so snuggly, feels like my Mummy.
His chair feels as comfy as 1000 teddy bears
And his house feels warm and comforting.
When I am content, I am a child in a blanket.
By Luke, P5B.
The iceberg’s story.
The iceberg is a vast mound of ice,
Floating across the cyan sea.
It is big as the Titanic,
It is as white as the clouds that fill the sky.
It is calm and relaxing.
It is covered with colonies of penguins,
Nesting and bringing stones for their nests.
When the penguins are here,
It is as noisy as an overflowing river going downstream.
It is cold like the Antarctic because of how frozen it is,
It is a cloudless sky.
Silent as a mouse when the penguins have gone.
When I am relaxed, I am an iceberg.
By Ben, P5A.
The Fireworks were big, bright, fun and colourful.
Loud noises went
On that night children went running about with sparklers.
They were beautiful, spectacular lights.
There were Catherine wheels, Rockets, Shooting Stars and Flying Saucers.
Cold, hot chocolate, wrapped up, warm.
When I’m HAPPY I am a Firework!!!
By Meryn, P5A.
The volcano erupted as suddenly as a firework,
With a waterfall of molten lava cascading down the side,
And clouds of black smoke filling the sky,
It’s fire of hell reaching down towards the sea.
When I am ANGRY I am a volcano!
By Christian, P5B.
My Beautiful Pond
The rocks gleam in the sunshine.
The orange fish are gemstones bobbing in the water.
The calm water gently ripples in the soft breeze.
The lily pad is as green as new leaves in Spring as they float along.
When I am relaxed, I am a frog on a lily pad in a beautiful, still pond.
By Hannah, P5B.
The sky is crystal clear and baby blue.
The ice-cold water fills the air with the smell of seaweed.
The huge wave is loudly crashing, showing its turquoise swirls.
A shimmering rainbow appears in the spray.
When I am confident, I am a mighty wave.
By Keira, P5B.
The Reflection Pond
The calm water cleans my thoughts and it is cool to touch.
The tiny fish are as gentle as leaves, floating into the water.
The light gives a warm glow to my reflection.
The lily pads hover around me.
When I am happy and present, I am a pond.
By Cameron, P5B.
We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day in school and at home this year with lots of fun quizzes, discussions of our favourite books and stories, story telling, assembly, designing book covers and lots more. As always the costumes were amazing!
