Primary 4S Trip to the Cinema

Today P4S went on an outing to the Vue cinema at the Omni centre to watch The Good Dinosaur.Staff were impressed with the good behaviour and everyone had a great time!

“The film was amazing!” Ava

“It was exciting!” Rehema

“It was fun!” Aiden

“There were sad and happy parts,” Zach

We reviewed the film when we got back to school.  P4S came to the conclusion that the overall message was to be resilient and keep on going even when things seem hard. We gave the film 5 stars!

Nursery Rhyme/Song of the Week

Each week in nursery we shall be introducing a nursery rhyme or song and will hand out a song sheet for you to share and sing with your child at home.  The children have really enjoyed ‘performing’ Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ this week in nursery, some really great singing.


Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are.

Look out for next weeks song lyrics – ‘Alice the Camel’

Road Safety

Our Junior Road Safety Officers, Kiara McGhee and Malcolm Douglas, met with the Parent and Carer Forum and PC Tony Lawrence to talk about safety on the roads around our school. Everyone agreed that they were worried by so many cars coming into Muirhouse Place West between 8.30am amd 9.00am.

They decided that we would have a focus on parking responsibly near schools. The JRSOs ran a competition in the primary to design a poster to ask visitors, parents and carers not to park at the school gates and to think about parking in Muirhouse Avenue. This would cut down on traffic and and be only a short walk to the school.

The police are going to help with our campaign and officers will be around to talk to drivers about parking with care near to schools.

No one wants to see someone get injured so it is important that everyone thinks about their driving and parking near our school.

There were eight designs chosen to re inforce the Safe Parking message. These are displayed outside our school and are here for you to see too.

We think you will agree that the ideas are really good and we hope that their messages will be followed!

Scottish Cup visits Craigroyston Primary

On Wednesday 12th October 2016, the Scottish Cup visited Craigroyston Primary. It was part of the Persevere Tour and we were delighted to be part of this exciting programme.

We heard how the Hibernian Football Club hadn’t given up in their quest to be holders of the oldest trophy in the world! It took 114 years for them to achieve their goal but in May this year they won the cup -A real story of perseverence.

All of the classes had their photograph taken with the trophy. If we have your permission  to have your child’s picture on a website, you can see all the photos on the Hibs’ website.

‘People Who Help Us’ visit the Nursery

We have been exploring the different roles people play in our local community and how they can help us. We had an exciting visit from the ambulance service.


The paramedics demonstrated how to perform CPR and we had a chance to try for ourselves.  We also learned about ‘Save a LIfe Scotland’.

We had lots of fun role playing in our hospital


Children’s quotes – “A nurse she helps people”. “The ambulance helps people when their legs are broken”.
