You made it to the weekend...

A huge well done for all your hard work this week. As we get closer to the end of term, and especially with this lovely weather, it can be harder to stay focused on your school work at home. THIS IS OK! You have done a brilliant job over the past few months and we are all very proud of you.

Try to make sure you get outside this weekend and enjoy the sunshine, you all deserve it! 🌞😃

The time has come to crown our first ever Ultimate Fit In 15 Champion…🏃👣🚴

I would like to say a huge well done to everyone who has taken part in the challenge over the past 4 weeks. You have all done an amazing job and I have been really impressed with everyone’s efforts!

The Ultimate Fit In 15 Champion goes to…

A huge well done to Eilidh, you are a superstar!🌟

Health and Wellbeing Week

Next week will be our health and wellbeing focus week.

🎤Song of the Day🎤

I hope you enjoyed this song yesterday, it is one of my favourites at the moment and a great Friday tune!

Another chance to be a Record Breaker…🎤🏆

Young Voices, the current Guinness World Record holders for the world’s largest sing along, are staging the World’s Largest Children’s Choir at Home for a record breaking singing challenge and you and your family are invited to take part. The song is called Power In Me…

Something to remember… ‘i’ by itself should always be ‘I’ 😉

The event will take place on 2nd June at 2:30pm and you can register at


You can practise the song as well as the choreography by watching some of the rehearsal videos in this link

Wellness Wednesday

For Wellness Wednesday this week, we are thinking again about Kindness. Showing kindness to others can not only make their day, but it can also help us feel happier too. It feels good to help others- and it can also encourage them to pay that kindness forward to someone else.

Even at the moment there are lots of small things you can do…

What simple act of kindness could you show someone today?

It is also really important to be kind to yourself and make sure that you are finding time to do things that make you happy.

How are you going to show yourself kindness today?

Challenge of the Week

I think this might be one of my favourites so far!! You can slow down the playback on the video to help you learn at your own pace! If you do learn any/all of it, send it in for your chance to be one of this week’s ‘Stars of the Blog’.

🎶🎵Music Three 🎵🎶

In Music Two, we began looking at the different musical notes on the stave and where we could find them on the keyboard.

Today, we are going be taking another look at the sound each note makes (this will help us when we are playing and singing!)

‘Not this video again!’ I hear you say! But this is a really good video for learning and practising the notes and their actions.

Video for Task 1


Meditation can be a great way to relax, especially when we are feeling stressed or worried. All you need is a quiet space to sit or lie down in.
