All children had the chance to visit Dovecot Park this week, with their class, for our House award. Teachers reported how much fun the children had and how nicely they played together.  We are going to try to get children out to the Park more often as we further develop Outdoor Learning. Watch this space for further news!

Today in assembly, we looked at the Wellbeing Indicator ‘being nurtured.’ We talked about how we care for pets, plants and babies as we learned about what ‘nuture’ means. Children were reminded who they should approach for support should they have any worries or concerns.

We found out the exciting news last night that again, we have the main retinue in this year’s Gala Day! Well done to A, L and J in P7 who have been chosen to undertake the roles of Queen, Chief Lady and Champion. We can’t wait until the Gala Day and we are so proud of our children.

Pupil achievements:

-A in P1 was delighted to show me her Enjoy-a-Ball trophy today! Well done A!

Today our basketball team are playing in the West Lothian league, Pool A. I am standing watching them now and they have just won their first game, 12 nil! Go Team Springfield! Thank you to Mrs Kerr and Mr Logan for their hard work with this group of children.

A few parents have spoken recently about our playground and how busy it is/playground supervision. Although we always have the correct staff-child ratio, we will increase staff numbers in future weeks and continue to ensure that all children play happily. Please continue to approach us if you have any concerns at all. If we don’t know then we can’t fix it!

Have a great weekend,

Miss Baillie x
