Next Thursday morning we are having the second Gylemuir Gathering session of the year. The Gathering gives pupils and staff the chance to work with children from different year groups across the school and focus on a specific theme (eg. Safe on our Streets, Community Champions, Healthy Eating, etc).
We had some really inspiring, thought-provoking and energetic tasks among the many activities last time – what will be in store for THIS session?!
Another year begins, and as always it’s sure to be an exciting, eventful one here at Gylemuir Primary School.
It’s been a great start to the new term this week, with lots of smiling faces around the school – pupils AND teachers!
We’re well into Christmas mode at Gylemuir, with our Nativity performances and Christmas concerts taking place this week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Next week will see some of the children out and about sharing their talents with the local community:
P4a – Tesco (11am, Wed 14th)
P7 choir – Tesco (1.30pm, Wed 14th)
P3a – outside Sainsbury, St. John’s Road (11am, Thurs 15th)
P7 choir – Tesco (1.30pm, Thurs 15th)
P3-7 choir – Edinburgh Airport (10.15am, Wed 16th)
With our Christmas Concerts fast approaching (6th, 7th & 8th December) the children are busy learning the songs which they will be performing. Should they need a reminder of the words – or in case any adults at home want to join in! – you can find the words for the songs below:

Primary Seven are back from school camp and have just about thawed out and dried off after an exhilarating week! As always, the children had a great time at Benmore…as the pictures show!
Meanwhile, the P7 pupils who didn’t make the trip to Benmore had an dizzying adventure of their own at the climbing centre at Ratho. Dastardly drops proved no obstacle for our intrepid pupils as they scaled the heights at the biggest indoor climbing centre in the world!
