P3 Investigate Sugar

As part of P3’s focus on Health & Wellbeing we want to investigate sugar, discovering:

  • Is it good for you?
  • Can you have too much?
  • How much is OK to have in a day?
  • How much is in some of our food?

We identified that cereal and drinks would be a great place to start our investigation as we all enjoy them, with most having them everyday.

Packaging for both cereal and drink often shows clearly the amount of sugar in the product.

It would be appreciated if you could send in any old cereal boxes / drink containers so we can investigate the sugar content. We plan to chart this in Maths on graphs as part of our study on data handling.

Thank you for your help

World Book Day (again)

World Book Day was on Thursday 1st March (last Thursday) and due to the snow all events in the school have been postponed to this week.  Children can dress up (on Friday 9th) as a character from their favourite book.  They can also bring in that favourite book and perhaps the one they are currently reading if it is different.

There will be a few activities going on in school on Thursday such as:

  • DEAR – Drop Everything and Read

    • A bell will sound and at that moment children are to stop anything they are doing and begin to read the story they have brought with them.

  • Book Swap

    • As we had during Book Week Scotland there will be a box in the top landing and lower landing of the school where children can drop off a book they have enjoyed reading for a book someone else has deposited.

Finally, the P3 class libraries are in need of some modernisation and an update and it would be great if any families could donate some books, so that we can restock our libraries with fresh literature for the children. 

Thank you,

The P3 Team.

School lunches

Message from the Catering Department:
Dear Parent/Carer

Due to the severe weather we have been experiencing, the catering department have been unable to receive any deliveries from suppliers. Normal deliveries are not likely to return until Tuesday 6th of March.

School kitchens will be providing a meal service however due to the issues with suppliers this will vary to the advertised menu on ParentPay. Due to the change in menus, allergen information will vary to the website and we will do our upmost to ensure all usual special diets are catered for.

We are working hard to ensure kitchens are back to advertised menus as soon as possible and your support is much appreciated.

Kind regards

Catering Dept.

World Book Day

As you will be aware all Edinburgh schools are closed tomorrow. This means we will miss World Book Day. Not to worry, here are some ideas you might want to do at home together so you can still celebrate World Book Day.

We will rearrange a suitable date to celebrate World Book Day so the children can still dress up – we were looking forward to seeing the different characters coming to school. We will let you know as soon as a date is decided.
Thank you.
