We were delighted to receive our ‘Big Cheque’ from Tesco Bank this morning. Their support has been crucial in helping us to fund our breakfast club.

P5 Looking for Angles

P5 used technology to record angles they found around school during one of their maths lessons.

We had fun learning about the particles in solids, liquids and gases.

We became particles to demonstrate the what its like to be in a solid, liquid and gas.


We learned that the particles in a solid are packed closely together. There is very little space between the particles.

In a liquid there is a little space for the particles to move around. A liquid takes the shape of it’s container.

The particles in gases have lots of room to freely move around!

Finlay shared what he had learned about particles….take a look at his video!

Primary 5 thought hard…..

They used Puppet Pals App to show how they felt.

We are learning about mindset and how to use this in our learning.

P5 assessed their own learning of FRACTIONS


In P5 we have been learning fractions in maths.  We went on a journey through the outcomes of fractions and assessed our own learning and understanding.



Mathematical Monday Morning…..p5 accepted the challenge! Will you?

Give our challenges a go!

Let us know how you get on!

The day Jodie met The Queen

On Wednesday 9th September 2015 The Queen visited Newtongrange to open the new Borders Railway.

Jodie tells us about the day she met The Queen.




We are learning about the Victorians.  We visited New Lanark World Heritage Site.

We got to see how the Victorian families lived at New Lanark Mill.  The Victorian children who lived in cities had to work from a very young age.  They worked down mines, swept chimneys and picked up horse poo from the roads.

We found out that Victorian life at New Lanark was very different for children and their families.

We had a fun day learning at New Lanark.
