P2N Teacher update 26/3/20

Hello Primary 2N

How are you all? I’m missing seeing your smiley faces everyday and hearing about what you have all been up to.

I hope you are enjoying undertaking some of the tasks in your Home Learning Packs, I noticed that some of you have been testing your maths skills on Sumdog. Don’t worry if you haven’t done anything in your pack yet, reading, playing games, helping to make meals, tidying your bedroom and all the other things you’ll have been up to are valuable experiences too. If you are looking for things to do, below is the recipe for the pancakes you made with Mr Hunter, I know you all really enjoyed baking them!

Drop Scones (makes about 12, we used ½ the recipe):

8 ounces Self Raising Flour

4 ounces Sugar

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

2 Eggs (beaten)


Pinch of Salt

Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder. Mix in the sugar. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and enough milk to make a thick creamy batter. Beta it together well then leave it to stand for 15 minutes. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into a hot frying pan. When air bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake, flip it using a fish slice. Enjoy!

Lots of Love               Evie wants to Miss Nicholls             say hello!

P5S Teacher update 26/3/20

Hello to all of our lovely P5s pupils!

We hope you are all doing well and have been keeping busy, happy and active in these rather unusual times. Hopefully some of you will have managed to complete some of the tasks set in the home learning packs. Please don’t worry if there are some things which you are unsure or confused about, all you can do is try your best. The main thing is to try and keep reading and keep listening to stories. David Walliams is reading a story every day from The Worlds Worst Children, which can be downloaded from his website. Also, there are free audio books available on Audible. Give it a go if you can.

There is also the countdown maths game website, we would love to see any of your calculations when we return to school!! Pictures, cartoons and imaginative stories are all good fun activities too.

Joe Wicks is streaming fitness classes on his youtube channel “The Body Coach”. It is important to have fun and interactive PE sessions at home to help you feel positive and energised. It is great fun (and it gives you a break from screens!)

Finally, keep being brilliant P5s, be really helpful around the house and keep being kind to brothers and sisters!

Keep happy, stay well and don’t worry. Things will return to normal eventually.

Take care

Mrs Shaw and Mr Irwin

Hiya P3S!

We hope you and your families are well and doing ok.

We are missing you lots and it feels very strange not seeing you all.

We know what fantastic children you are, you will be trying hard at home just like you do in school.

We hope you are enjoying doing some of the activities in your home pack but don’t worry if you can’t manage them all. It is important you are helping out and chilling out too!

Help round the house by keeping your room tidy, and asking if there are any jobs you can do. Keep reading books and listening to stories.

If you are looking for something to keep you busy here is a fun activity you can try indoors or outdoors depending on the weather!

Scavenger Hunt – Indoors try to find something beginning with each letter of the alphabet and collect them all. Can you get all 26?

Outdoors  – try to spot something beginning with each letter of the alphabet like Eye Spy. Or here is a nature one you could try. Keep remembering to wash your hands.


Bye for now kids. Be good and be kind.

Love from

Mrs Haggart and Mrs Shanks


Nursery update 26/3/20

Good Morning Craigroyston Nursery families!

How is everyone? It feels a bit strange not being with you all at the moment. It will take us all time to adjust to this new way of learning and keeping in touch! We are almost at the end of our first week of home learning now and we are all very interested in what you have been up to!

Have you been helping to tidy up toys around the house? Have you been reading stories or listening to stories online? Have you managed to get some fresh air? Have you helped to look after a pet? Have you been doing exercise with The Body Coach in the morning? Have you been kind to someone in your family?

We have so many questions for you but most importantly – are you happy, safe and healthy? We hope everyone is keeping well.

If you have anything you would like to share with us – photos, drawings, videos… we would love to hear from you on our Facebook page. It’s important for us all to stay connected!

Playdough is also very popular at nursery and lots of fun. If you’re interested in the benefits of playdough please see the following link: https://parentingchaos.com/play-dough-developmental-benfits-early-childhood/

And if you’re up for it here’s how to make your own! https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/playdough-recipe

Keep up the great work – it’s almost the weekend! We are missing you all very much. Remember to keep washing those hands!!

P3L Teacher update 26/3/20

Hello P3L!dog

I hope you are all well. I am missing you all with your cheery wee faces and funny stories. Here is a funny picture of Dora who is still managing to have a walk in the park and chase her ball.

It’s great to see some people have had a go on Sumdog but don’t worry if you haven’t. It is more important to keep safe and have fun with your family. Maybe read, play a game or watch TV together.

Can you spot the difference? (Ha ha it’s my turn now!)


How many can you see? there are no tiny dots!

Can’t wait to see you all again.
