Maths Week Scotland 2021

It’s Been A Blast!

Here are a couple of ‘photo dumps’ from Maths Week at Carrick Knowe. This first set is of our Maths Treasure Hunt which was organised by our P7 House and Sports Captains…

And here are lots of pictures from each stage in the school. Further pictures and information might be available over on the class blogs!

The JRSO’s at Carrick Knowe Primary would like to encourage families to cycle or scoot to school all of next week. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate cycling and scooting and the positive impact it has on children’s health and wellbeing.

To sign your child up, please complete the very short form which can be found using this link…


All completed forms will give you automatic entry into a competition to win a FROG bike.

Teamwork Tina!

It is just over half way through the month and Teamwork Tina has been spotting lots of great Teamwork going on around the school!

Mrs Dale has been working with some P3s. She said, “Fred Frog was really delighted with Fred Frog’s new P3 friends! They did some great teamwork this week, helping one another both indoors and outdoors, practising and improving our listening, talking, reading and writing skills.”

P4 have also been showing some great Teamwork in Team Games.

Two pupils in P5 worked really hard together on a poster and look at the wonderful result!

The teachers are going to find it really hard to choose only one person to give the Teamwork Tina certificate to at the end of the month.

Keep up the great Teamwork Carrick Knowe!

Morrisons Grow Tokens

Morrisons have launched a scheme to give free gardening equipment to schools.

It is called It’s Good to Grow.

My Morrisons

For every £10 you spend (in store or online) at Morrisons, you’ll get a Grow Token to help our school get everything they need to keep growing.

Download the MyMorrisons app today to start collecting Grow Tokens and choose Carrick Knowe Primary School to donate them to.

Our school will then be able to exchange our Grow Tokens for a wide range of FREE gardening and growing equipment to use in class and on the allotment.

Thank you,

Ms Pincock
