Fountainhall primary school

We celebrated St Andrew’s Day in our usual style last term, with P1-6
joining together with Heriot for a day of Scottish themed activities. The
day was finished off with an assembly for family and friends to allow
children to share their learning and perform Scottish songs, dances,
poems and music. The ELCC (Nursery) children and staff celebrated
with  a  ceilidh.  Thanks  to  Howie’s  mum  and  dad  for  providing  the
excellent playing. All the children had a fantastic time and looked great
in all their tartan!
Fountainhall Primary and ELCC were extremely busy in the run up to
Christmas with lots of exciting activities and events. At the beginning
of December, some of our pupils performed at Stow Church as part
of the Junior Gala Water Singers, along with children from Heriot and
Stow. They sang a variety of Christmas carols and songs and sounded
absolutely amazing! Later that week, the whole school had a trip to
the Brunton Theatre to see Jack and the Beanstalk. Thank you to our
Parent Council for funding this super experience.
Our younger children enjoyed a variety of Christmas tree trips where
they  visited  pupil  and  staff  houses  to  look  at  their  Christmas  trees.
They  also  took  part  in  door  step  singing  to  some  lucky  Fountainhall
community  members!   The  children  also  performed  their  Christmas
singing and signing at our whole school concert on the final Wednesday
evening. ELCC children finished the term with a Christmas party with
the children in all their finery.
Our P1-6 children performed Prickly Hay: A Nativity Hoedown for our
Christmas concert. There was fantastic singing and acting all round
– a huge success! Our grande finale was a rendition of We Wish You a
Merry Christmas, singing and signing, from all our children aged 3-11.
Our Parent Council then treated everyone to mulled drinks and mince
pies which was a lovely social way for us to end the year. On the last
day of term we had a Christmas assembly led by Rev. Linford. The P1-6
children gave performances with their ukuleles and guitars which they
had been learning through Youth Music Initiative.
We have welcomed 6 new children into our ELCC this term so we are
now completely full! We also welcome 2 new members of staff: Mrs
Currie and Mrs Wilson. This term, our P1-6 children will be working on
a pupil audit with Linda Young from Children in Scotland. One of our
P5 children, Stanley, will be representing the school at our Learning
Community Chess Competition. The P1-6 children will be travelling up
to Heriot to celebrate Burns’ Day with a special lunch, followed by our
Scots Language Competition. The children will also be completing a
block of rugby this term.
Fountainhall  Primary  now  has  a  Rag  Bag  collection  bank  in  the
playground.   Please  support  us  in  raising  funds  for  the  school  by
depositing unwanted clothes and shoes.
