Don’t Worry, Be Happy- Talk and Tell Sessions

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.

P1 Farm to Fork

Had to share this lovely email that I’ve received from Jane who was our leader during our visit today:

What a wonderful class visit this morning  –  We really enjoyed having the children in store today, they were a credit to the school  –  hope they enjoyed their visit as much as we did.
Looking forward to working with the school in future with any of our other Farm to Fork topics

What a busy week we’ve had in P1……. Mrs Carlyle has been checking that we know all our sounds and can read tricky words.

  • We are learning all about sentences and how to make a sensible one.
  • We are also learning to tell the time : o’clock and half past
  • Lots of learning about Space, the planets and gravity.

We all enjoyed our trip to Dynamic Earth…. here’s a photo

In numeracy Isla M says that we have been guessing the amount of cubes then counting and checking to see if we are correct.

Training Tuesday’s and Friday’s

We would to thank everyone for your support throughout all of last session to help us do the very best that we can for your children. A special mention has to be given to the outstanding success of the Race for Life event and how the community of St. Martin’s pulled together to raise money for such an important cause. The training that went into preparing the children was well worth it!
Now that the event has been completed the training sessions will now stop so there will no longer be training sessions on a Tuesday and Friday. When we decide to do another event similar to the Race for Life then the training sessions will be organised again as they served a fantastic purpose in getting us all race ready!

Many thanks.

Meet the Teacher Open Evening

Wednesday 31st August 2016
To give everyone the opportunity to meet the teachers of St. Martin’s we are holding a ‘Meet the Teacher’ workshop. This involves teachers giving you a little presentation about themselves and information about the school week in relation to their specific class. It is a great opportunity for parents/carers and family members to learn more about the daily routines, weekly timetable and expectations that are set for your children in terms of homework and behaviour.
Each teacher will present 2 workshops to allow as many people to attend as possible. The second workshop is a repeat of the first.
Workshop 1 – 6.30 – 7pm
Workshop 2 – 7.00pm – 7.30pm
There will also be an opportunity for you to ask the teacher questions. Please support us in teaching your child by coming along and spending time finding out about your child’s life at school. It is evenings like these that make the difference in helping your child reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally.
Please return the slip to the class teacher or the school office.

Many thanks!
