Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.
This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.
If you believe you can help support any area of development in any way , please so get in touch !
As you are aware next week is our final week of school. I know everyone is tired but it would be great to see as many people involved next week as possible in the activities and google meet calls! A few things I want to highlight.
This should be complete by the end of next week. All the tabs need to have some information in them. If you need help or you want me to check over it, you can share it with me.
I am making a video of your memories of primary school so that you have a record as you move forward. These should be short videos, though if that is a problem you can send a slide with your memory on it. I have only received 12 so I am missing 17!!
We should find out our P7 classes next week. I will let you know as soon as I have more information.
Visit to School
We are hoping that you will be able to come into school next week individually at a designated time in order to collect a gift from the school, myself, and your work. We are hoping the yearbooks will be available then as well.
Next week’s Google Meet 11am timetable:
Monday- last day of fun games
Tuesday – review of lockdown slides
Wednesday – BIG END OF YEAR P7 KAHOOT QUIZ
Thursday – Most Likey to Award Ceremony
Friday – pajama/ ice cream party with end of year video
I have also planned some escape room activities, creating a dreamboard of what you would hope for in your next 15 years and P7 message slides. These slides are for everyone to write positive messages/ memories to your classmates in order to keep and remember. Some people have also created exciting feelings scales for you to use in your check ins next week!
Remember to watch the DGS Transition videos and keep up to date with the Twitter Page!
Next week P7 are taking part in a question and answer session with Mrs Scott, guidance teacher at Dunbar Grammar school on Google Meet. This is an opportunity for the children to ask questions regarding transition to high school. This is part of the P7s transition process and essential for their move to high school. The children have been asked to send me their questions by Monday lunchtime so I can pass them on to Mrs Scott ahead of our meeting. The class is split in to two groups so that there is an opportunity for their questions to be answered.
Wednesday 10th June 10:30am-11:00am
Wednesday 10th June 11:00am-11:30am
Google meet is a video chat website used by schools across the cluster. This can be accessed via phone, Ipad or computer/ laptop. To access google meet, the link is at the top of our P7 google classroom and it will be also shared in hangouts. The children do not need to speak but Mrs Scott is hoping to put some faces to names before the children move up to high school.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
