Kosher Rap Competition

 

Our Primary 6 class are taking part in a Kosher Rap competition, where they have been tasked with recording their own rap video, based around something that they have been learning in school. This is a national competition, so we will be competing against other schools throughout the UK. If we are successful in winning this competition we will win the chance to record our song and film with a professional recording company. This is a great chance for our Primary 6 class, and also a great chance to raise the profile of our school and our Kodesh curriculum. Please take the time to visit www.kosherrap.uk to vote for our entry. If you click to watch the videos then you will see at the beginning of the video which one is the Calderwood Lodge entry. Please encourage as many of your friends and family as possible to do this, as some of the other schools that we are competing against have a much bigger role than ours, with more children and families to rely on for votes.

 

Health Week

keep-fit-and-stay-healthy

Next week in Calderwood Lodge sees us turn our attention to all things healthy as we participate in our very own Health Week.  This has been organised by Miss Dunn, and includes exciting activities such as zumba, yoga, handball, rugby, karate, hip hop taster sessions, alongside smoothie making, oral health sessions and visits from parents to talk about sporting achievements.  We look forward to what should be an exciting week of activities.  Please could you ensure that your child has a change of clothing for each day that is suitable for both outdoor and indoor wear.  We anticipate the children will be working up quite a sweat so would like to ask that you also ensure that they have a bottle of water with them each day to stay hydrated.

Child Protection

East Renfrewshire Child Protection Committee are hosting three major events to tackle the concerns of parents, young people, staff and those in our local communities about exploitation in a number of ways, and at a time of increased media attention.  Please see the attached flyer for more information on the events.

Book Fair

Once again the Book Fair will be in Calderwood Lodge for the week.  Each class will have a chance to visit the Book Fair during the school day.  The Book Fair will  be open at break times and lunch times for the children to purchase books and other small items.  There will also be an opportunity for parents to visit during the upcoming parents’ evening.
