We created a video showing what the Primary 1 children do on a daily basis in school. All too often the children say they did ‘nothing’ when they are asked what they did at school. They are very busy, learning through play, concentrating on tasks, developing social skills and making new friends.
Have a look at the video on our school VIMEO site. Click HERE to view the video.

We forgot to upload the June 2018. It is on the website now.
This week we participated in the national Hands Up Travel Survey which gathers information on the ways children in Scotland travel to school.
At Fernielea, we have always had high numbers of children cycling and scooting to school. Some of the highest in the city.
We also have high numbers of children walking to school.
These are all healthy ways to travel to school. This year our Transport group are aiming to encourage even more children to travel to school in a healthy way. This will cut down on the number of cars around the school and make it safer for our children as they go to and from school.
If the weather is fine – try coming to school in a healthy way!
Scoot Cycle Walk
This term we will are very lucky to have Zumba Rhonda back to run the Zumba club. SHe has just spent 10 days in Zumba school in Florida learning even more about Zumba and she is excited to try out new songs and dances with our pupils.
Zumba is open to P3-5 children this year and we are taking bookings ONLINE through the Active Schools booking system.
It is at the bottom of the page so click ‘show more‘ to see it.
Places will be allocated on a rota basis if the club is oversubscribed.
Welcome back to all of our Fernielea Families. Also, welcome to all of our new families – it is wonderful to meet you all.
We have returned to school with positive attitudes and ready to learn. Thank you to all of our families for ensuring the children are wearing school uniform – they all look so smart and part of Team Fernielea!
Please have a look at our website if you want to find out any information about the school. Updates are underway and each class will have a new blog which will be going live next week.
Today the Primary 7s entertained their families with their amazing pantomime – A Lad in Trouble. They were absolutely fantastic and it was clear that they worked very hard along with Miss Steel and Mrs Angus.
Below is a link to the powerpoint that was shared with their families showing their memories of Fernielea.
EYES OPEN APPROACH ENCOURAGED FOR CHILDREN AT RISK
Everyone in Aberdeen City should keep their Eyes Open for children at risk during the school holidays.
In the week that Aberdeen City’s schools sound the end of term bell, Child Protection Committees across Scotland are encouraging the public across the whole country to be extra observant to help protect potentially vulnerable children when school’s out for summer.
By taking an Eyes Open approach, Aberdeen City’s own child protection committee hope that members of the public will take a more active, watchful role when it comes to protecting children in the area and take action if they’re concerned for a child’s wellbeing.
“By keeping our eyes open and our other senses tuned in, we might spot the tell-tale signs that a child is at risk. These signs include seeing children wandering about at all times of day and night, children who are very dirty or unfed, unsupervised children going into “party” flats, or whose parents are drunk in charge of them. However, spotting the signs isn’t enough. If something doesn’t seem quite right for a child, or a family of children, it’s better to say something than do nothing.”
CPC Scotland Chair, Anne Houston
Anyone who has concerns about a child or children can ask the child if they’re okay, offer the family some support, or contact Aberdeen City’s social work service, or the police.
