Book Week at East Craigs: Monday 26th February – Friday 2nd March 2018

We are looking forward to taking part in Book Week at East Craigs! Everybody should have received a letter with details about the different activities taking place each day of next week. Remember to complete your ’10 Minute Read’ challenges and return your sheet to be entered into a class prize draw! Also, please email any photos to the school office (FAO Mrs Millar, P2/3).

On Friday 2nd March, everybody is invited to come to school dressed up as their favourite book character. Look at last year’s super costumes for inspiration!

Happy Burns Day from East Craigs!

Lots of exciting learning has taken place during our Scots fortnight at East Craigs, which concluded with our special Burns Day assemblies. Well Done to all of the poetry winners – the standard was exceptionally high this year. We also want to say a huge Thank You to Mr Smith and his friend who played the bagpipes at both the P1-3 and P4-7 assemblies. What a great way to celebrate the East Craigs Scots fortnight and Burns Day!


Homework Survey

Please do take some time to fill in our Homework Survey.  The aim of the survey is to gather the views of the whole school community about the amount and type of homework given, the range of models used for issuing and collecting homework and also the amount of support needed to complete homework activities. It will be live on the website until 6th November.  The results of the survey will be used to inform the development of our Homework Policy moving forward.

Many thanks.




Survey for Early Learning and Childcare

Survey for Early Learning and Childcare

The Scottish Government plans to expand Early Learning and Childcare services to almost double the number of funded hours from 600 currently to 1140 each year. These extra hours will be available to all children aged 3 or 4 years old and will be in place by session 2020/21. Families should have choice and flexibility in how they use services – including whether they use all of their child’s funded hours and whether they use them during school term time or throughout the year.

City of Edinburgh Council want to find out what your experience of Early Learning and Child Care is really like in Edinburgh, whether you use it or not, what you like and if there is anything you think could be changed or improved.
Please do have your voice heard by completing the surveys below.

Many thanks.

Health Week 2017: Yoga
