We need you! NCDT Summer Programme

NCDT have a fabulous calendar of summer events planned (all will be revealed next week) and we are looking to recruit volunteers to support our staff.
In particular we would like people involved with supporting our activities for young people and for our one-off community events.
If you think you would be able to give some time in the Summer holidays whether it be our entire programme or just the odd day here and there, please complete the following expression of interest and myself or Laura will get in touch with you! https://forms.office.com/r/bm1guNmcwm
Can’t wait to get started! #teamnewcumnock #investingincommunities
Thanks

School Garden Progress – Thank you Shire Housing, NCDT and New Cumnock Community Garden Group!

Our DEN group have been working hard on their Community Partnership this session. We have worked closely with the New Cumnock Development Trust to bring about a positive change in our local community and represent ourselves as positive role models within our community, setting the same example to our peers.

We were kindly gifted £500 from Shire Housing and have used the money to buy outdoor paint which we have used to spruce up our school planter located in the New Cumnock Community Garden and to make our playground Friendship Stop bright, colourful and attractive to the pupils in our school. We have received so many compliments on it already. It really stands out in our playground and the fact that it looks so nice is making boys and girls want to visit it.

We have also used some of the money to purchase plants from the Netherthird Community Garden Group (supporting another local business). We are working closely with the New Cumnock Gardening Group who are volunteering to support us in developing our school garden. They gave us their expertise to help us pick plants which would be best for our school garden. We have spent a few days now working on our garden, making sure the soil is weed free, prepped and cultivated ready for planting. We can’t wait to show you all the finished result!

A huge thank you to each of the volunteers from the New Cumnock Community Garden Group, Alan from Shire Housing and Tammy from the New Cumnock Development Trust for your help and support with this project!

 

 

Eco-Committee TEAMS Meeting

See the source image

Hello to our eco-committee members! I apologise for the quiet period following our lockdown learning. I have been doing some bits and pieces in the background and working out how best to move forward.

Before the summer holidays I would love to have our Action Plans in place for our return in August. To have a meeting we are going to use TEAMS. Mrs McNulty is the brains behind this and has created a TEAMS group for us, thank you Mrs McNulty!

Our meeting will be on Thursday 17th June at 3.30pm.

You have each been added to this group and a meeting has been scheduled. Please make sure you are able to view this page prior to Thursdays meeting.

The topics we will be discussing for our Action Plans will be;

  • Litter
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Food and the Environment

Our Action Plan will list:

  • who will carry out the work
  • what will be done
  • where the work will be done
  • why you chose your topics
  • when the work will be done
  • how it will be Measured

If you could have a think about these topics and what we need to include before Thursday that would be fantastic!

See you all then!

The moment we have all been waiting for…

After all of your wonderful efforts to fundraise for Cash for Kids, Mr McClure has stayed true to his word and got his legs waxed for our entertainment! 🤩

A huge thank you to Loren from the Beauty Room in Cumnock for doing the deed for us, I think she enjoyed it as much as Mrs McNulty did filming it! 🤣

 

Bump Up Day Arrangements

Bump Up Day – Thursday 18th June | New Cumnock Primary School
Given the current climate, it has made Bump Up Day options a little trickier as we continue to adhere to class and playground bubbles to ensure the safety of our children and young people. Therefore, we have chosen to honour the P7 and ECC transitions through an actual Bump Up visit and P2-7 classes will be given a Virtual Bump Up opportunity. Arrangements for these are noted below.
Tuesday 15th June 9.30-11.30am: P7 Transition visit to S1
P7s will be visiting the Robert Burns Academy for their Transition visit.
Wednesday 23rd June 1-3pm: ECC Bump Up to P1

ECC cohorts will be brought over to visit the school to meet their teacher and see their classroom on this date.

Cohort 1: 1-1.30pm
Cohort 2: 1.30-2pm
Cohort 4: 2-2.30pm
Virtual Bump Up – Week Commencing 21st June
Microsoft Teams - Wikipedia

Primary 4-7

Next sessions P4-7 pupils will be added to their new class Teams pages, as these children have been trained in using Teams.
In this Teams forum, children will be introduced to their class teacher and have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have. Next sessions P4-7 children will have their new Glow usernames and passwords sent home with them. Please keep these safe and instructions on how to access Teams will be made available on the school blog.
Microsoft Forms - an Office 365 tutorial

Primary 2-3

Next sessions P2, P2/3 and P3 classes will use Forms which will be posted on the main school blog, allowing you to submit your child’s name and a contact email address with any questions our pupils may have.
