Easter Bonnet Parade

‘In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady / gentleman in the Easter parade’
Irving Berlin
Our first ever virtual Easter Bonnet parade! Lovely to see this school tradition taking place in these very unusual circumstances. Thank you to Beth and Callie in P7 for organising this for us all.

Home Learning Day 9

Thank you for sharing some of the wonderful home learning going on across Currie again today. The random acts of kindness are wonderful to see with all the beautiful cards and letters being made and written for people living in care facilities, helping around the house and so on. Also great to see so many children reading (in strange and unusual places too!) and creative art and personal projects based on school topics being completed. In addition it is so good to see lots of puzzles and games involving strategic thinking and building models taking place, as well as good times going for walks, gardening and playing football!

Home Learning days 7 and 8

We are loving seeing all the photos as you send them in and hearing about the fantastic work going on, both in academic subjects like literacy and numeracy but also within the wider aspects of life, for example preparing delicious pancakes for breakfast for the family, helping with younger siblings, cheering up younger brothers and  sisters when they are sad or upset and writing letters offering help to or making cards for elderly relatives and neighbours. Keep up the good work everyone!

Nursery 1140 Hours Update

Nursery Places August 2020

The Scottish Government announced this week that that we are to postpone the requirement to provide 1140 hours from August 2020. This means that the City of Edinburgh’s Early Years` team will need to look at the provision of Early Learning and Childcare across the city for August on a setting by setting basis and agree on provisions that we are able to offer families. This provision may well look quite different from what was previously planned and may cause concern to parents/carers whom have already put plans in place. We will try to ensure that families have access to 600 hours until such times as the infrastructure and workforce are in place to phase in 1140 provision.

Please see attached the letter from City of Edinburgh Council.

Nursery places August CEC Letter April 1st

You will hear from us after Easter about Nursery places.

Kind regards

Home Learning Day 6

Week 2 of Home Learning is underway and so far it looks like the enthusiasm and motivation for work is still strong among so many of our pupils. It is great to see the creative and imaginative ways everyone is tackling the work sent home. I was briefly at school this morning after being at our Hub at Firrhill and it was lovely to see so many rainbows on windows and garage doors! We are enjoying seeing and reading about the positivity jars and random acts of kindness going on too. Keep up the good work Currie Primary School.
