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 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!

150 Inspiring Teamwork Quotes To Motivate Employees In 2021

Last week our Pupil Council and House Captains Team met to work together to tackle what they decided should be their first job- playground resources!

Together they audited the equipment we currently have, cleared out and removed any equipment that was unusable, and made a wish list of some new equipment they would like to put in our Quiet Area.

They worked so well together! The resource cupboard was cleared, cleaned and re-organised really swiftly! Some of their wish list items have already been ordered, or sourced from our staff.

Next, the Pupil Council reps will be asking their classes for their ideas and input into new resources. Look out for a letter from them in the new term asking for any donations of old games and resources. The House Captains will have responsibility for managing and supervising the use of our playground resources, so they can look forward to that challenge in the new year!

Here are some photos of these 2 pupil groups working so well together. Well done to everyone for helping.
