It is World Book Day on Thursday, 5th March.
Just a quick reminder that the children have been invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. Primary 1 children are also going to be working with their Nursery Buddies on Thursday, so could they also bring in their favourite book to share? Don’t forget to put names on books!

Our much anticipated Primary 1 and 1/2 Ceilidh will be taking place on Monday 9th March at 1:30 – 2:50. It would be great to see you there if you can make it! The children can come to school dressed in anything tartan – from full kilt or tartan hair ribbon! We have made tartan rosettes, so everyone will have something to wear on the day.
Make sure you wear footwear suitable for dancing – audience participation required!

A date for your diary……

At the moment, Primary 1 and Primary 1/2 are working together to put on a ceilidh for the grown-ups!

It would be fantastic to see as many parents there as possible to join in the fun. The ceilidh is planned for Monday 9th March at 1:30.

Welcome back to our third term in Primary 1. Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.
This term, we have lots of learning to do – addition, subtraction and telling the time! We might even have a visitor from outer space! Later in the term, there will be an opportunity for you to come and join us for an afternoon to find out what we have been learning. (More details to follow.)

I sent gym kit and gym shoes home at the end of term to be washed and checked. If you have not already done so, please can you send them back into school as soon as possible?

Unfortunately, our class camera is broken. A new one has been ordered but I wont be able to post any photographs until it arrives…….unless I can borrow one from another kind teacher!
