The Primary 7s are well on their way to mastering cursive writing – well done for all your efforts!
These past couple of weeks we have been finding lots of interesting information about the Scottish Parliament. On Tuesday 22nd January we will enjoy a dynamic lesson with a Scottish Parliament Outreach visitor. 7C are in the process of writing to our MSP Iain Gray in the hope that he might come in for a visit and answer some of our questions about the work of an MSP. Watch this space!
Well done to all the Primary 7s who held a fantastic Christmas Fair this morning. Thank you for all your beautiful baking – always a winner – and for all the very successful stalls. The younger children in the school enjoyed it so much and I know that all the teachers were very impressed with you too. A lot of the money has still to be counted but so far, you’ve raised well over £700 – very well done!!
As the nation gets ready to be gripped by excitement of the Paralympics, the P7s have had a fantastic time this week enjoying so many different sports and activities. Thank you to Mrs Baillie for organising everything and everybody! And a big thank you as well to all the parent helpers without whom it wouldn’t have been possible to get out and about.
P7, what have you most enjoyed about your week?
The week beginning 20th August is Health Week (many thanks to Mrs Baillie for organising everything!). Please come to school in your joggers. Polo shirts and school sweatshirts are still to be worn, as usual. We’ll be out of school on Monday for bowling (wear trainers please) and on Thursday for golf (sunshine on order!). Let’s all make an effort to have healthy snacks next week!
Please could all P7s ensure they have the correct, labelled PE kit in school for their lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
On Wednesdays, we will have PE as a year stage (led by the P7 teachers) first thing in the morning. We will often be going over to the Sports Centre where we have a booking from 9am. In order to maximise our PE time, we would like all P7 pupils to come to school in their PE kit. This means we can quickly register everybody and then start our PE lesson promptly without wasting time on getting changed. It is essential, however, that you bring your school uniform into school with you as everybody will be changing out of their PE kit once the lesson ends. It is also important that you dress appropriately for the weather: even though you are coming in PE kit, you will still need a coat; as the weather cools it might be best to come in joggers with your PE shorts beneath.
A big welcome to all our new Primary 7s! Everyone has come in bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (even the teachers!), ready to work hard and enjoy this first term in P7. A special welcome as well to Mrs Gentil who is the new member of the P7 team, teaching alongside Mrs Barbour, Mrs Gilkison and Mrs Penman. We are joined by 4 new pupils so let’s all look after them to ensure they settle in and make friends quickly!
Please all remember to have your gym kit in school tomorrow as you are likely to have PE with Miss Imrie. You will need your gym kit every Wednesday and Thursday (please ensure everything is labelled).
Keep up the good work, everybody. Now, where is that sunshine?!
