Children have been given their new home reader books this week. Remember that these books have been picked by your child and should be read for enjoyment throughout the week. These should be brought to school every Monday when the children will have the opportunity to swap their books. Happy reading!
We would like to thank everybody who took part in our dress down day fundraiser last week. We raised an amazing total of £75.00 which will help towards the cost of our leavers hoodies. The total amount we have raised so far from the dress down day and the Christmas Fayre is £125.00. Thank you again for your continued support, we have lots of fun plans for the future.

Primary 4/5 enjoyed representing simple fractions outside with natural resources. This activity allowed us to demonstrate our understanding of numerator and denominator that we had been learning in class.
P7 are organising a dress down day on Thursday 6th February, to raise money to buy their leavers hoodies. If you’re participating there will be a contribution of £1 paid through Parent Pay. We are having it this Thursday as it is the last day before the February holidays. Thank you for your support.
Every month in our Home Circles at Catrine Primary School, and in the Welcome Groups at Catrine ECC, we will be focussing on one of our Catrine Values to ensure that our pupils have a solid understanding of them.
Our Values are – Ambition, Determination, Fairness, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork.
We would appreciate your views on whatRespectmeans to you and your family.
Responses will be collated and displayed around our school and ECC to show a shared understanding of our Catrine Values from all stakeholders – pupils, parents and staff.
As part of our STEM week in school, we will be focusing our homework on our Leaders Award challenge. This challenge allows children to be creative and become inventors! At home please discuss with your child a problem that could be solved with a creative invention eg a melting lollipop, running goggles, trollies that help you lift heavy shopping. In school, the children will then design their invention and write a pitch letter. These will then be entered into the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award 2020.
