2019-2020 Archive


We have now started archiving the archive but for now we’ve kept some of our favourites including Sports Day, Uniform Day, the Community Concert and Mrs Clark’s cook-a-long!

End of Year Celebrations!


Every year we hand out a number of awards at the end of the year. Unfortunately, we were unable to jointly celebrate all of our sporting achievements but some teams (including our P6 footballers) were invited to come down to the school to pick up their trophies.

We were able to celebrate some of our individual winners and we have included these below:

Jack Anderson Award

“Just tries, tries, tries and gives his all in everything. Always polite and a wonderfully hard working young man!”

P7A Headteacher Award

“Never fails to put a smile on everyone’s faces! He has grown up so much in his time at CK. Everyone loves him!”

P7B Headteacher Award

“A real credit to the school. A friend to everyone, and really hard working but, more importantly, he is never afraid to be himself and do what makes him happy!”

Pupils’ Pupil Award

“Everyone in P7 chose you! This shows the positive impact you have on everyone you meet. Just a happy, smiley person with a little bit of bonkers added in!”

Goodbye P7!

EVERY member of staff wanted to shake hands with you all, hug you all and say our goodbyes face-to-face but unfortunately it’s just not possible right now. Instead we are relying on technology to do it this year and so the staff have all sent in videos wishing you the very best for the future!

One thing is for sure…
You will be the Primary 7 year group that nobody ever forgets!

And finally…

We wish you all a very happy summer where hopefully you can relax and forget all about school! It has been an absolute team effort over the last 3 months and we really appreciate all the hard work and sacrifices you have had to make whilst having your children at home. But never fear…

We look forward to taking over again from Wednesday 12th August!

Have a great holiday! Love Bruce x

Good Morning to all my budding chefs
I hope you are all ready and raring to get cooking today!

Today we will be making a vegetable soup using the Tesco’s “Nana’s Magic Soup” recipe. I have made this with groups of children before who have found it very tasty and it’s a firm favourite in my house too. I really enjoy cooking and I am super excited to able share this passion with you during our Health Week.

Happy Cooking Everyone!

We are practising lots of different skills today, including:

  • Peeling
  • Chopping (claw hold and bridge hold)
  • Measuring
  • Listening to and following instructions

Please remember to pause, stop, rewind etc. the video so that you are able to make this soup in a safe manner and if you don’t have the chance to complete the cook-a-long today, don’t worry, you will be able to watch this video by looking in the archive section of the website.

  • Miss Inglis style – with cheese on toast?
  • Mrs Clark style – with peanut butter sandwiches to dip in?
  • Mrs MacLennan style – for dinner with pudding on the side?
  • Mr Morley style – with a cup of tea?
  • Mrs Pincock style – with chopped up chilli added in?

Dear Parents and Carers,

Throughout the video I make constant reference to you….just that you are there supervising your child and keeping an eye on the cooking process from beginning to end. Thank you for your support in this and I hope that you all have fun making this meal and enjoy cooking food with your child/children.

Please don’t worry if you don’t have the exact ingredients; yellow and orange peppers will work as well as red; you can use white or red onions and 2 small sweet potatoes will work instead of one medium one. As you will see in the video, I add in 3 carrots because I didn’t want one lonely carrot lying in the bottom of my fridge – soup really is great for using up lots of “odd” vegetables.

If you manage to take any photos, please do send them on to me at Steph.Clark@carrickknowe.edin.sch.uk so that I can share all of your cooking with our school community (via the website).

Thank you for embracing this learning activity with your child.

Happy cooking!

Mrs Clark

P7 Glee Sign ‘Fight Song’

Today’s Stars of the Blog goes to some of our amazing P7 Glee Club. They have been working very hard over the past few weeks, learning to sign Fight Song. It has taken a lot of perseverance but they have worked as a team (practising over Teams without even being able to see each other) and done an amazing job! They make it look easy!

The Virtual Community Concert


Well done to everyone who got involved and wore their school uniform last Friday! We had a great day playing, learning and working in our uniforms and it really felt like we were all together again.

Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures and shared what Carrick Knowe Primary means to them. Have a look at some of the fun we had!
