Dear Parents and Carers,
We are committed to raising standards in literacy for all of our children. Literacy is a subject which underpins all learning and our teachers foster literacy skills whenever they encourage children to listen, talk, read or write. When children learn their own or another language, they begin by listening, then talking and then extending what they have learned in reading or writing. We are very keen to promote the vital skills of talking and listening in their own right and also to develop a confidence in spoken language that will extend, in due course, to writing.
Building upon a recent focus by teaching staff, we are introducing talking and listening homework at Braidbar Primary. From time to time a topic will be introduced to the children at assembly. This topic will frequently (but not always) be the same throughout the school. The children will then be given the task of discussing it at home during the week. We believe this discussion-based homework is just as valuable as any written homework and will link to learning experiences in class. You will receive clear information about the topics involved and guidance on the amount of time to spend on the activities.
Our ECO Committee are continuing to promote sustainability across the school and we want to extend this work further by involving the community. We are signed up to the Rag Bag Recycling Scheme and we would like you to help us raise funds for our school with textile recycling. This is an opportunity for us all to help preserve the environment and reduce the amount of material that goes to landfill whilst raising funds for the school. We are accepting textile donations until Tuesday 28th March.
Items we are collecting Items we are unable to accept
Wearable clothing Wet/soiled clothes
Paired shoes Towels
Belts Duvets and/or duvet covers
Bag Pillows and/or pillow cases
What happens to your textiles?
The school will receive £400 per tonne of textiles collected for recycling! Low grade textiles are made into industrial wiping cloths, carpets, underlay and mattress linings. Good quality clothing is transported to Africa and other developing nations where your old clothes are re-used.
SPRING CLEAN THOSE WARDBROBES AND DONATE TO US WHAT YOU DON’T WANT!!
Parent Council meeting will take place at 7pm tonight. All welcome. Please click on the link below to view the agenda.
Agenda for 23 February 2017
A message from the Library Committee
Dear Parents / Carers,
As you may know, World Book Day is being celebrated next Thursday 2nd March. At Braidbar we would like to join in and to this end the Librarians and teachers have planned a day’s activities for Friday 3rd March. The day will start with an assembly to share books and the pleasure of reading and will continue in classes and the school library.
At home we ask that you help your child to choose:
- a favourite book (in English or another language)
- a prop that links to a favourite story or character (e.g. a wand for Harry Potter or a tin of spaghetti for the Twits)
Please send these items into school on Friday 3rd March and they will help to form part of our activities and learning for the day.
Many thanks for your continued support.
