Monday 1st June

Hello everyone, and a happy Monday to you all!

We hope you all had the chance to enjoy some of the amazing weather at the weekend, and are ready for another week of home learning!

We’ve got something new to share with you, and Mrs Gowans is here to explain it to you!


Attached below is a letter from Mrs Gowans, explaining all the information around Broughton Reads for you all. There’s also a format you may want to use to record any texts you read this month, but your home learning jotter or another way is equally good. We’d love to hear all your recommendations for good reads, so we can all share them with each other!

Broughton Reads Letter- June 2020

Broughton Primary School-My Reading Log


Mr Horan also has the latest information from LivingStreets to share with us- see their message below-

This week’s activity on our updated #walkingfromhome page is encouraging everyone to Share, sometimes it is easier to walk and talk.

You can encourage your school children to walk for 20 minutes every day as part of their daily exercise and see what benefits they experience.  This week encourage your school children to talk about how they are feeling using our activities to make sharing fun and playful.

Please continue to share your thoughts, snaps and videos with us by email or on social media #walkingfromhome. 

Happy Walking,

Living Streets Scotland Schools Team


That’s all for our update today folks. We hope you have a lovely day, and can enjoy some of the sunshine!

As always, stay safe!

Mrs Venn, Mr Borthwick, Miss Bradley and Mrs Gowans

Sports Day 2023

This week we had our Sports Day in St. Mark’s Park.

It was lovely to see everyone taking part so well, and we were so lucky to have such beautiful sunny weather! Huge thanks to Mrs Bertram for all her organisation, and to our P7 helpers who practically ran the P1-3 Sports themselves!

We also had support from our Friends at Broughton parents and carers- see below how they helped out…

This week the FAB team helped served at three sporting events!  Nursery sports days on Monday and Wednesday and the school sports day on Tuesday!  What fantastic few days of sunshine and such buzzing atmosphere.

With our local Canonmills #Tesco donating 200 pieces of fruits meant we managed to offer them FREE to our pupils on the school’s sports day.

Big thanks the volunteers for donating your valuable time and refreshments (home baking or otherwise), and those who came and bought from us.  You all helped raise a total of £181.59!

The amount will help to subsidise school outings, playground improvements, gardening or social events.

FAB Fruit Trees

FAB fruit tree labels

We are very lucky to have a few fruit trees in our lower playground.  However, during the winter, it is hard to identify what they are!  It took five parents to design, print, laminate, identify and tie these labels on – true team work!  The pupils who attended our Playground Tidy Up event in March played a big part in colouring in and sticking pictures on, adding all the more important finishing touches to producing these fabulous labels!  Well done to them.

We encourage families to go and admire these labels and talk to your children about them, appreciate these fruit trees, help look after them and watch the flowers turning into fruits soon!
