Well, we’ve reached the end of another school year and our P7s finished their primary careers on a real high with a fantastic show. For everyone else at Gylemuir, the excitement of a new school year awaits…
We’d like to thank you for your support over the past year and hope you all have a great summer break.
Well done to Christopher in P6/7, who was shortlisted in the Scottish Engineering Special Leader Award. We’re sure his engineering product – The Road Pothole Fixer – would get lots of use around Edinburgh!
Over the past few days the children have had sessions in the playground working with one of the City of Edinburgh’s Play Co-ordinators and using a variety of “loose parts”. These are everyday objects which help to stimulate play and include items such as tyres, bottle tops, tarpaulins, pipes, planks and pallets.
We’re looking to increase the number (and variety) of loose parts we have in the playground so if you have any objects you would like to donate please let us know.
