In maths we have been learning durations of time, like if running club started at 8:00am and ended at 8:40am it would have been 40 minutes duration, and we have been improving our skills on time in top marks time matching pairs.

Message from the Catering Department:
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.
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.
