P4 have been busy over the last few weeks working on their writing skills. We have used the short film Blue Umbrella as inspiration for our writing. We have created our own version of the story and each day we add sentences from our work to our sentence stacking wall so we will have a class version too. We have been learning to write action sentences, feeling sentences and sound sentences and we have developed our writing techniques by using similes, onomatopoeia and alliteration. One more writing session to go to finish our fabulous story – we are so proud of our work!
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 !

This week marks the end of the school year and, for Primary 1, this is a huge time for celebration. You have all grown so very much since you started school and have amazed me, your grown-ups and even yourselves at times.
I am so very proud of each and every one of you so, for this week we have something very special planned!
Unfortunately we cannot go on a class trip to mark the end of the year, but the virtual world will allow us to go somewhere we could never manage to do for real in school. So, this week, we are off to Orlando, Florida to explore the world of Disney!
Every day there will be new and exciting ways to learn through the adventures that the theme park offers. I do hope you are as excited as me to be taking part in this adventure together.
This slideshow will guide you through the virtual trip to Disneyland and the week’s activities rather than a timetable. And, for a little extra fun, Miss McKay has created a National Picnic Week activity grid which ties in beautifully.
Have a wonderful week.
