Campie Bikeability Needs You!

A group of P7s are participating in the Bikeability 1 course at the moment and we are happy that we can offer this to the P6s next term too.

We’d love to be able to offer Bikeability 2 course to our P7s  and to do that we need a couple more trained volunteers.

Are you interested?

If you are please leave your details for Shona Blakely at the school office.

Possible training dates have already been identified and you can say which would suit you best on this doodle poll

Scottish National Standardised Assessments

This session schools across Scotland will be using Scottish National Standardised Assessments.

Extract from  Scottish National Standardised Assessment  (SNSA) /Scottish Government website:

The Scottish Government has introduced a single, nationally developed set of standardised assessments, designed to reflect the way we deliver education in Scotland, through Curriculum for Excellence. These assessments are expected to replace the variety of existing standardised assessments that local authorities and schools use at the moment.

Ongoing and informal assessment is, and will continue to be, a central part of everyday assessment. Teachers will continue to draw on all of the assessment information available to them, when considering children’s progress and planning the next steps in their learning.

Mindset Moment: Mistakes are proof you are trying!

keep-trying

We are continuing our focus on how mistakes help us in the learning process.

Do you have any examples you can share with your child about a time when you learned something new as a result of a mistake or, how you continued to practise despite making mistakes and eventually achieved something worthwhile?

Why don’t you share this experience?

Mindset Moment: Every mistake . . .

mistakes

Although we may feel nervous about making mistakes, if we understand that every mistake we make is progress then we should celebrate and welcome mistakes as a vital part of the learning process. This week we will be exploring how we can support one another to use any mistakes we make to make progress in our learning.
