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

Bowling Green Tidying Continues!

We are incredibly grateful to some of our parents and pupils who have been tidying up and weeding again over at the Bowling Green space, on Saturday 10 October. 

Rachel Blythe from our Parent Council and Friends at Broughton group wanted to share the excellent efforts with us- her report is below…

Powderhall, Saturday 10 October 2020 – I would like to thank: Karolina Galera, Maciek Galera, Jennifer Longstaff, Lukas Szkwarek, as well as Sophie, P6a and Simon P4a for the splendid work today at Powderhall.  Many more planters are weeded and tidied up; holes are being filled in; and much more general weeding and tidying up was completed.  Lukas’s company very kindly donated soil for the planters and gravel for the holes.  We were also helped by a kind family from Leith, who are friends and neighbours of Lukas.

On Sunday, 11 October 2020, Pauline Oh and her family planted thyme and spring onions in the planter, which is closest to the gate.  She is also planning to make some labels for what is planted.

Thanks to Rachel for passing this on, and to all our lovely helpers for their efforts in improving our green space. 10 house points each to Sophie and Simon! Well done everyone! Here are some photos of our green fingered team…
