Numeracy Workshop Event P1- P7 parents and pupils
Tuesday 17th January 6.30pm – 7.30pm
Lochend Campus

Following the questionnaire we issued at the Meet the Teacher evenings in August it was clear to us that parents were very keen to find out more about how we teach numeracy and mathematics and to be able to support their son/daughter with homework.

As a school staff we have planned a series of workshops that we hope will offer you an opportunity to get some hands-on experience of the methodologies, strategies, games and activities we use to teach your children. These are detailed on the back of this sheet.

We have set up a wide variety of activities and you are very welcome to attend any of these – you may want to attend some that are further up the school to get an idea of what will be coming next, or you might want to attend those specific to your own child’s stage – the choice is yours.

All workshops will last 15 mins and we will then give everyone 5 minutes to get to their next workshop – everyone will have the opportunity to attend 3 on the night. Our very helpful Primary 7 Meeters and Greeters will be on hand to get you all to the right classrooms.

You are very welcome to bring your son/daughter on the night and we are keen for them to come along to join in the activities.

In order to help us with planning and organisation on the night we would be very grateful if you would complete the attached form (sent out to all parents, see photo below) to help us with organisation and numbers attending, however you can turn up on the night and we will be delighted to see you all.

Dress Down Day for Macy

Dear Parents/Carers,

We would like to hold a dress down day on Friday 20th January 2017.
As many of you may be aware, Macy, one of our P6 pupils and her family,
are currently raising money to help fund a life changing operation
taking place in the USA in February this year.  This will be a non uniform day and we would like everyone to wear a woolly hat as well.

We would like to support this cause with your help.  This is entirely voluntary and all donations will be gratefully received by the family.  We suggest a £1 donation.

Anyone wishing further information can read more on the following website.

We thank you for your support

Helen Gillanders

Christmas Jumper Day

We are having a Christmas Jumper Day on Thursday 22nd December – just for fun!  If you have a Christmas jumper or t-shirt then please wear it to school on this day.

Please don’t go out and buy anything if you’re not sure what to wear.  Perhaps pop some tinsel round your waist or stick a bow on your school jumper!

Just a few photos so far!
