The Big Pedal and Parent Drop-In

Image result for sustrans big pedal 2018

Today was the Big Pedal-the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school. Our Junior Road Safety Officers have been encouraging as many pupils and parents as possible to take part. Whether it was by scooter or bike, we certainly had a lot of traffic in our playground this morning!

Today the JRSOs carried out a survey of how many people took up the Big Pedal challenge, and 183 people took part! That’s a great effort!

We’ll find out soon how our number compares with others around Edinburgh and the UK, so keep a look out for an update!

Parent Drop-In

Today we also held another Parent Drop-in. A chance for our parents and carers to pop in and spend some time in class to catch up on some of the fantastic learning happening in school. The school was buzzing with activity, and it was lovely to see so many visitors around the school! We hope you enjoyed your visit!

Bookmark Competition

Bookmarks

During Book Week last term, we held a Bookmark competition. Many children created a range of lovely bookmarks to enter, and the Pupil Council had a very hard job when they judged the winners!

After deliberating long and hard, they finally came up with a winner for each of the age categories. They were…

P1-P2- Harrison Hood from P1b

P3-P4- Conor Colhoun from P4b

P5-7- Holly Bartholomew from P5a

Well done to our very talented winners! Harrison received a lovely new book, and both Conor and Holly received a Book Token! Prizes well worth entering for! Thanks also to everyone who entered- the Pupil Council had a tough job!

Here are some photos of our skillful judges, and the winning bookmarks!

Respect Me!

Through discussion, during Anti-Bullying week, Primary 6a decided that respect for each other was a key element to combat bullying. We discussed and explored what respect for each other looks like and sounds like in our school. Ultimately, we created this video to share what we believe respect for each other is like at Broughton Primary School.

Well done to P6a!
