The children have been working hard to learn more Signalong signs.

I will post a slideshow every couple of weeks or so, showing the signs that the children have been taught. Please encourage your child to demonstrate these signs and try to use them at home. Now we have learned more signs, the children are enjoying putting 2 or more together to make simple sentences.

Hope everyone had a lovely break last week.

A busy term…..

  • Apologies for blank/missing photos from our class website. This is an authority-wide issue, and it looks like the missing photos can’t be recovered. We have been assured that the problem has now been fixed, so any photos posted from now on should be visible. Fortunately, all our photopeach slideshows are safe!
  • Please make sure that PE kit is sent back into school. Our next PE lesson is on the first day back!
  • This week we will be finishing off our Autumn Challenges before beginning a new topic – Celebrations. This should lead us into December, Nativity and Christma
  • Mrs Christine Sharp will be working in Primary 1 this week. She is a qualified teacher, looking for some extra classroom experience to help her get back into teaching after a break.
