Numeracy Week

Monday 6th – 10th November

As part of our school improvement plan for this session we plan to increase the opportunities for parental engagement. As part of this week, there will be opportunities for parents to come into school work and learn with your child. We are linking with the maths department from Alloa Academy, launching Sumdog from P3-7 and P6 and P7 children will take part in a Financial Education Workshop. If you work or have experience in any aspect of the STEM workforce (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), please get in touch with Miss Hamilton so we can make use of your valuable expertise.

A separate letter detailing events throughout the week will be sent home on Friday.

Open Evening

This year’s Open Evening will take place on Tuesday 28th of November from 6pm – 7.30pm. Please come along with your child so that they can share some of their learning with you. We will also be able to share updates on the developments. More information will follow about the workshops that will be on offer. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please let us know if there are any clubs/organisations within our community that would like to have a stall at our Open Evening event.

Events

This session we have incorporated school events into our curriculum to provide children with a further opportunity to develop their life skills. They will take on leadership roles, demonstrating themselves to be confident, responsible effective and successful contributors within our school community.
