Happy New Year
From Everyone At
Carrick Knowe Primary!

Here are a few highlights from the final few weeks of 2017

Mr Horvath and the CKPS violinists wowed the school with their Christmas songs including this one from everyone’s favourite Christmas film… The Snowman!

We had all of our Christmas parties from the Nursery all the way up to Primary 7…

There was a special Christmas service at Carrick Knowe Church involving our fantastic P7 readers…


Our Pupil Voice groups all met for the first time. Here is a couple of photos from the Digital Dynamo meeting…

And we had our final Celebrating Success Assembly of 2017!

A Miracle In Town!

Congratulations to all the children in P1, P2 and P3 who took part in our Nativity  performance this year. For those who were unable to come we hope you enjoy seeing some photos of the action.

 They spent weeks practising the songs , the dances and the words.

Thanks to all the parents and other relations who were able to come and support the children. There was great excitement in the classrooms before and after each performance.

Merry Christmas from everyone in P1,P2 and P3!

Thank You!

On behalf of everyone at Carrick Knowe, we would just like to say a huge thank you for turning up on Saturday to our annual Christmas Fair.

It was a huge success and it was great to see so many people grabbing themselves a festive bargain or getting the chance to go and see Santa! Details of our raffle and competition winners can be found by clicking here.

And in other news… The Snowman has taken over!


Thank You!

Well done to all of our children, parents and staff for raising a whopping £522.67 for Children In Need. This amount includes an amazing £200 from our nursery who had their own bake sale!

Get Caught Reading!

As part of our planned activities for Book Week Scotland (Monday 27th November – Friday 1st December) we have an exciting competition called ‘Get Caught Reading’. The challenge is to take a photo of yourself/family reading in an interesting location. Here’s some that our teachers have taken!

All photos should either be printed out and handed to class teachers or emailed to Laura.Inglis@carrickknowe.edin.sch.uk. The deadline for entries is Monday 27th November and winners will be announced at our special Book Week Assembly that week.

Parents/Carers should be aware that although photos will be printed and then deleted, they will be put on display as part of our Reading Challenge Wall in school.

Code Club!

Over the past 6 weeks, some of our P4 children have been attending our first ever Code Club. With help from some Lloyds Banking volunteers, they’ve been making animations, programming some talking robots and even creating their own games!

Thank You From Team P7!

Primary 7 would just like to thank everyone who gave a little money on Friday 29th September in order to support our fundraising efforts for Macmillan Cancer Support. We spent the whole of Monday counting the coins and we raised a massive £395.60.

It took a fair bit of planning, a whole lot of budgeting and some incredibly messy baking but we did it and you can check out some of the pictures below to see how we got on! Some of us even got to go to the bank to cash up!

Jeans for Genes

A huge thank you for supporting ‘Jeans for Genes’ day on Friday.

Your generous support helped us raise a whopping £393.68 for Genetic Disorders UK!

Genetic Disorders UK help disorder-specific charities and patient groups to deliver inspiring projects and support services for children affected by a genetic disorder in the UK.

The monies raised by you on Jeans for Genes Day will help to provide grants for day-to-day support, equipment, nursing and patient support services, and events which bring together affected children and their families.”

Meeting Our Buddies!

It was an exciting time for Primary 1 and Primary 7 on Friday as they got to meet their buddies for the first time!

Here are just some of the things we were doing:
Reading stories… Drawing pictures… Playing with sand… Watching Alphablocks… Going outside… Playing in the house corner and… Collecting lunches!

Our Art Lessons

The children have been working really hard with Mr Gonzalez in his art classes to produce a ‘Where’s Wally?’ image with a bit of a twist!
