We are so fortunate to have had a visit in school from an award-winning author, Stuart Reid. He shared snippets from his latest series of books- 'The Gorgeous George' series. The parts that he shared with us were hilarious, they also included alliteration which has inspired some of the children to include this in their writing more often. Stuart shared stories behind the inspiration for his writing, including a story about a panda from Edinburgh Zoo, these were shared to us with hilarious video clips as Stuart read poems and storied from his books.


Have a look at his website below for more information about his books and writing.

This week the Nursery children have commenced their induction programme.  They are very excited about starting P1 in September. This can be a very daunting experience for both the children and their parents so this year we have devised a new programme.  We hope it makes the transition in September a little easier for all.  Here was the first step: our visit to the canteen for lunch.  It was very successful and the children really enjoyed it.

For the last two weeks our school has been participating in a Sustrans event, The Big Pedal. The aim is to encourage as many children as possible to cycle to school every day for two weeks. There were a lot of schools in the UK taking part and by Wednesday of the 2nd week we were 11th in the region. This was an exciting event and the Nursery children enjoyed taking part. Well done to everyone who put in the effort to use wheels to get to school over the past 10 school days.

Well done to our Nursery class and Mrs Kane's class who all participated in the Jo Jingles sessions.  As always, the children all enjoyed these sessions and behaved beautifully, always remembering their manners and singing loud and clear!

The boys and girls in Nursery were treated to a visit from a local PSNI Road Safety Officer. Stuart talked to the children about how to stay safe when crossing the road, staying safe in the car and staying safe when cycling their bike. He showed us all the different things he has to wear on his belt and we had a look at his uniform. We were very lucky to get to sit in the Police car and see the flashing lights along with the noisy sirens. Thank you to Stuart for taking the time to talk to the children. His message to the children was: ‘The PSNI are always here to keep you safe.’

Last week the nursery children were very lucky.  The Enterprise Team work very hard throughout the year and use their money to resource the different classes.  Last week the girls presented a range of different wooden toys to the Nursery children and we are very thankful. We will get lots of fun building the different vehicles.


Thank You

We had a visit today from Mr Jim McCool who performed his interactive Celtic Yarn-Spinning show. 

The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
