Primary 1 BOATS 6th March at 11.30


Friday 7th February


Dear Primary 1 Parents and Carers



Bring Your Adults to School



Next half term we will be welcoming parents and carers once again to come into class and share in their child’s learning. We hope to focus on some literacy activities for this session.


This will take place on Friday 6th March at 11.30am


You will have an opportunity to explore and join in with some teacher-led and independent learning activities within the classroom. You will be asked to return to the playground as normal at home-time to assist us to dismiss the children safely.



We look forward to welcoming you on the 6th.



Kind regards


The Primary One Team
