Roseburn PTA

The Roseburn Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) is a big part of Roseburn school life and also a valuable income source for the school – contributing to the funding of both vocational and recreational activities…from whiteboards to end of year discos!

The PTA is always on the look out for new members and new ideas – if you’re interested in joining us simply drop your name and contact details into the PTA Post Box, which is just inside the main entrance to the school; you can also speak to one of the PTA members, email our chair –  roseburnpta@yahoo.co.uk, or just come along to our next meeting in the school.

You’ll find further information by following the menus on the left.  Should you wish to view a copy of the PTA constitution click here.

P1 Home Learning – Week 2 Catch Up

Well done everyone for making it through two weeks of learning from home. Don’t worry if it hasn’t all been smooth sailing – it certainly hasn’t for us! We are all getting used to a new way of working and living together that is so far from our norm.

Thank you to everyone who has shared their wonderful home learning with us. We have seen a whole range of activities from counting and reading to cooking and den building. We miss you all very much and we really enjoy seeing your smiling faces on your Journals. Here are just a few of the super posts from the last two weeks…

Below are the documents that we sent out to you this week. They are here to refer back to if you need them – but remember there is no expectation of what you will and will not do. You have to choose what is right for you and your family.

We hope you have a relaxing Easter break. Stay safe. Be kind.

Happy Easter!

Good morning P6D. It has been great to see your hard work over the past week, keep it up! Wishing you a lovely Easter and look forward to being in touch after the holidays. I have posted a video on twitter saying hello.

Keep healthy, stay safe and be kind to yourself and others.

Primary 5 home learning achievements

Good morning primary 5, we’ve made it through 2 weeks of learning at home already and I am so proud of all the hard work both you and your new teachers have been doing. It’s certainly a challenge but one you are all getting used to, I really miss teaching you all & thought it would be nice to share some of your achievements for everyone to see.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break that you all deserve, please remember to email admin@roseburn.edin.sch.uk or tweet any of pictures of your work for your teachers to see and share. (please scroll down to see some from the past two weeks).

Here is a Friday video from our favourite ‘Kid President’ to remind you all that your AWESOME! 

Mrs Scott

Mayura has been working very hard at our John Muir project, she has created a power point presentation that we can send with our application. Please click on the title below to view her fantastic work.

Sam has been practising his presenting skills and helped to create this super video for Destiny Kids online. Before we left school we started to learn about Christianity and why Christians celebrate at Easter…keep your eyes peeled for the Easter special episode & well done Sam.



James took part in the Lego challenge this week to create a penguin. Not only did he manage this no problem, he made two & received a reply from the official Lego twitter page – AWESOME!

James also impressed us teachers by thinking outside the box and recreating one of our E.R.I.C drawings using props around his house, can you spot the similarities?


Molly has drawn a lovely sketch of a bunch of flowers, using different types of shading and a mixture of 3D and 2D shapes to create this lovely picture. Well done Molly, Mrs Denvir will be very proud.

Aarush has created this very realistic space buggy from lego. It reminded Mrs Scott of a BBC video where a presenter got the chance to test drive some space buggys on earth and they look very similar. Great work Aarush!

Friday 3rd April

Good morning P4!

Well done – you have made it to the end of term and will officially be on holiday very soon! I hope you are looking forward to a well-earned rest!

I am so impressed at how many of you have entered the Sum Dog competition! Some of you have even got up bright and early this morning to try to get to the top of the leader board! The competition finishes at 11am today so look out for the results!

Please do refer to the P4 Home Learning Week 2 Overview which I posted on Monday for intended learning and suggested activities that you can complete today if you’ve already spent enough time on SumDog!

I hope you all have a lovely Easter holiday. It’s definitely going to be a little different from usual but I’m looking forward to my daily exercise in the sunshine (hopefully), reading my book and having some time to relax – I hope you all are too!

Take care,

Miss Prentice

P6 Maths

Awaiting the results of the P6 Sumdog Challenge, you still have some time to answer a few more questions. Here are the answers to the measurement questions that were set this week. I saw great examples of practical measuring. The length and circumference of different parts of the body, measuring ingredients for cooking and baking, the perimeter of various items in the home and lots of scale drawings. I hope you are being accurate…

Support for Writing

Some parents were asking how to tell whether the writing their children were doing had enough detail for the stage they were at; if they were on track; or how would they know what to suggest to help them improve their work. This assessment tool was created by the staff and is used to help assess learning at second level. Generally the first column would be expected at P5, the second at P6 and the third P7. The final column in black is the benchmark for achieving second level. Hope this helps. – Miss Gardner
