Lockdown didn’t bring the children from Heathfield Primary and EYC down.

They stayed busy and focussed throughout - cooking, baking, exploring, creating, having fun and keeping fit.

On top of their daily home learning tasks, pupils enjoyed a wide range of activities and many children used the time to learn to ride their bikes or explore the scavenger hunt set up by South Ayrshire Active Schools team.

There was also a Crazy Hair Day, Hot Chocolate Friday, a school disco, Sports Week, Dance Week, Film Week and Numeracy and Mathematics Week. Jacquii from FIB Youth Theatre provided a virtual drama workshop through the school’s Facebook Page.

All new Primary 1 pupils and Primary 7 pupils who are moving on to local Secondary Schools were provided with an opportunity to visit the school as part of the transition programme.

The community stayed strong and connected through visits, certificates, social media, email and cards and letters and feedback from parents was positive and was greatly appreciated by the staff team.


Scotland is in lockdown. Shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We're not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Ayr Advertiser, and the vital local news service we've provided since 1803, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Ayr Advertiser in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you're shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks – and stay safe.
