We will hold our World Book Day activities tomorrow (Tuesday 6th March ). If the pupils had a costume organised for World Book Day they are welcome to wear this tomorrow but there is no obligation for any pupils to do this. The pupils will also have a story with milk and cookies during the day.
This week in Primary 7 we started our maths mini project where you plan an end of year excursion. We were separated into groups to complete the task. It has been hard to find different types of information and all of the groups are working hard. We had to figure out the cost for travel and the activity we have chosen, make a healthy snack and each day filled out our feedback sheet for everyone else our group.
We would like to ask all parents/carers to check their child/ren’s heads at least once a week. Parental vigilance plays a vital role in keeping the spread of this problem under control.
We no longer can send letters to particular classes where parents have made us aware of an outbreak but can only continue to remind parents to check their child’s hair on a regular basis. If going uncheck it can easily spread throughout the family, as well as children continuing to be re-infected in their particular class/ stage.
I know treatment can be expensive , especially if you need to treat the whole family but I believe if you register with a pharmacist you can be issued with the correct treatment free of charge but please check this with your own GP or pharmacist.
Autism Awareness is a 2 hour session run by Simon Robinson from Barnardos’ Intensive Behaviour Support Service (BIBSS) that aims to improve the knowledge, confidence and resilience of parents, carers and professionals in working with autistic children and young people. We will cover issues around various ‘challenging behaviours’ looking at causes and strategies to try.

This week we performed our Christmas show and sang our hearts out. It went super well and our audience were amazed. All the actors and actresses remembered the lines really well especially Maia who had so much to learn. Every class were fantastic and performed really well.
We are still practising our songs so we can sing them at Tesco next week. We also sold our baubles at the Christmas Show. You can still buy the baubles if you bring in £3 next week.
We wrote our final draft of Titanium in literacy and it went very well. We have learned how to upscale our sentences and words and to use the show and not tell technique. We have also learned how to use the different tactics from our slow writing. We have discovered how to write a story without being really repetitive. We are going to display our writing so feel free to come and have a look. Continue reading “Our Christmas Show”
On Monday 11th December there will be a change to the school menu. There will be salmon fish fingers with diced potatoes or filled baked potatoes with either cheese or beans. There will be no vegetable noodles.
We are now in the process of delivering taster sessions for the NYCoS singing groups to all P3 classes (and some P5s). if you have not already had yours, you will be getting them soon!
I have had some enquiries from parents who say the link isn’t working in the email that has gone home and I am also finding some children haven’t had forms. Would it be possible to send this message out again to all parents? Thank you.
