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
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.
To find out more follow the link to the Parents’ and Carers’ section of the SNSA website:

If you haven’t achieved something you would like to . . tell yourself . . .
As we learn, we may need to try different approaches in order to be successful. It is important that we see this as an important part of our learning and recognise these as achievements. We can then use this knowledge in future tasks.
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?
Just a reminder that we are continuing to encourage improved attendance at school. We are working with all our cluster schools and the local community to encourage excellent school attendance.

We are very aware that lots of learning happens outside of school and as a school we want to encourage pupils to share their experiences and successes.
