Sunny weather!

Welcome back Primary 1 pupils and families to Term 4! Where has the time gone?

This is a little reminder that when the forecast is looking sunny and warm, pupils should come to school wearing sun cream and possible a cap/sun hat for added protection when playing outside.

Pupils can bring in their own bottle of sun cream to apply before break/lunch themselves.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Crofting Commission!

On Monday, Leia’s mum visited P1A and P1B to talk about her role in the Crofting Commission. This led to some good discussions about what a croft is and how they are protected to ensure they continue to be used properly.

The children also asked questions about what it is like to work in an office and about the kind of tasks she needs to do on the computer to do her job. We had lots of chat about all the different jobs that involve computers and writing skills!

Also Leia’s mum kindly brought in a pen for all the pupils – this was a big hit! Many of the children were using them to draw and write for the rest of the day.

Thank you so much for your visit!

Lost Property

Milton of Leys Primary School

Over the term there has been a lot of unclaimed lost property. Yesterday P7A have worked very hard to sort out the lost property and returned all named items to pupils. What is left is everything that does not have a name on it. As you can see there is a huge range of items, some of which are very expensive and we would like to return as many items to their rightful owners as possible!!

Today and tomorrow every class will have an opportunity to view the lost property to see if they can spot anything that belongs to them.

The lost property will be set out in the community room and parents are invited in today, tomorrow and Friday to look for anything that your child may have have lost this term. Please come in through the main school office:

  • Wednesday 9:30 – 3:30 p.m.
  • Thursday 8:30 –…

Grounds Day in P1!

In Term 4, the whole school takes on a science project with a gardening and outdoor learning focus. This year’s theme is “Bee Brilliant!”

Today, we started preparing the P1 raised beds so that they will be ready for planting after the holidays. Our raised beds are the two directly in front of the P1A classroom in the courtyard.

We had to turn over the soil and take out all the stones and weeds. We were very excited to find some worms in our bed and even tried making “worm houses”!


A special thank you to Mackie’s papa and Ramsay’s mum for all their hard work this morning!

Shape Formation

P1 have started exploring shape formation as part of our pencil control concepts. We made shapes using lots of different ideas including shadow shapes. What was even more exciting was our reading of Triangle and Square by Jon Klassen. Some of us decided to make the houses of the characters or pictures of the characters in different ways.
