P6 VE Day party-

This afternoon our P6 classes welcomed their parents, grandparents and friends to a celebration and sharing of their learning about World War 2. All the children and many of the guests were dressed in period costume and took part in a range of activities including code breaking, darning, first aid and learning from our local Rotary Club about genuine WW2 artefacts. Each class took part in jive dancing workshops and had a chance to sample some war time rations. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work in putting together such a fantastic event.

Cake Sale

Thursday 19th June 2014   2.30-3.45pm

There will be a cake sale on Thursday 19th June 2.30-3.45pm in the P1 playground to raise funds for Project Play to help create even more imaginative play spaces.  This will be a fantastic opportunity for the wider parent body to see the revamped P1 playground and pick up delicious home baking. Entry and exit for this event is through the P3 doors. Children can bring money in and buy cakes on this day, either after the school alone or with an adult who usually does pick up.

P1 parents will have an opportunity to do this directly after the Book ceremony already planned for Thursday 19thy June. If any P1 parents would like to contribute baking please send your items individually wrapped with your child on the Thursday morning.

If it is wet, the cake sale will still go ahead and we sell cakes from Heathers Hut in the P1 playground.

Supporting Literacy at Home

What is literacy?

Image of a book with pictures appearing to rise out from the pages

Literacy is about learning to read and write accurately, being able to listen carefully and talk clearly about ideas.

These skills will enable young people to participate fully in their learning now and later on in a work environment.

How can you help?

Parents play a crucial role in helping to develop literacy skills from an early age. You can encourage your child to explore literacy outdoors and at home.

There are many opportunities in everyday routines to practise and apply literacy skills in real and meaningful ways e.g. reading to your child every day, learning nursery rhymes together and pointing out signs in the local community.

You can also encourage your child to talk about their thoughts and ideas, and about how they are feeling.

Here is a link to ‘Education Scotland’ website. It has great advice and video clips to support parents with literacy at home, they suitable for different age groups.
