Numeracy Games

Some Numeracy Games to practice at home, these games also link to Number Counts.  They can cover a variety of levels as they can be adapted to the numbers your child is working with. 

Rachels Millions: Could be done to practice place value and can be adapted for any stage your child is at i.e. if your child knows numbers to 99 practice with 2 cards if they are learning numbers within 10,000 use 5 cards. http://www.nzmaths.co.nz/rachel-s-millions

Rwanda Backpack Project

Nursery and P1  are very excited to be linking up with North Berwick Youth Café this year that have  a link with a Primary School in Rwanda.  A group of young people from North Berwick High School and the café will be flying to Rwanda to help a Nursery and Primary school. An important aspect of this initiative is the Backpack Project.

Thanks to COSTCO who donated 40 empty backpacks we would now love to send them filled with stationary and PE Kit.

All our pupils at Nursery and Primary1 are involved in this project and we are welcoming speakers from the High School on Friday 10th October to show us photographs of the boys and girls who attend the school in Rwanda.  After this venture we hope to develop further links as part of our on-going Global Citizenship curriculum.

Paying for more than one child/different items

If you are paying for a visit or milk for several children you can do this in one payment if you name the children individually in the ‘Additional Information’ box.

Please keep payments for different items separate to allow us to record the payments appropriately.

Charges

If you choose to pay online using a debit card there will be no charge.  The charge for using a credit card is 1.9%.  This would mean that a payment for an item costing £10 would cost you an additional 19p if you used a credit card but nothing if you were using a debit card.

As we grow up
And we go to our first school
And we hope that everything will work out cool

We are nervous
As we walk in full of awe
Never worry cause that special school is Law

All agree North Berwick Law is unsurpassed

So let’s savour
Our lovely school we all adore
And look forward to next year and forty more

Supporting Literacy at Home

What is literacy?

Image of a book with pictures appearing to rise out from the pages

Literacy is about learning to read and write accurately, being able to listen carefully and talk clearly about ideas.

These skills will enable young people to participate fully in their learning now and later on in a work environment.

How can you help?

Parents play a crucial role in helping to develop literacy skills from an early age. You can encourage your child to explore literacy outdoors and at home.

There are many opportunities in everyday routines to practise and apply literacy skills in real and meaningful ways e.g. reading to your child every day, learning nursery rhymes together and pointing out signs in the local community.

You can also encourage your child to talk about their thoughts and ideas, and about how they are feeling.

Here is a link to ‘Education Scotland’ website. It has great advice and video clips to support parents with literacy at home, they suitable for different age groups.
