We have had a very busy, but very productive and positive, week in school as we welcomed the visitors to Netherlee as described in my email last week. Our visitors have thoroughly enjoyed their time in Netherlee and it has been a pleasure to have them join us to experience a “week in the life of Netherlee”.
Book Week Scotland
Book Week Scotland will take place from 15th – 20th November 2021 with a theme of ‘Celebration’. Throughout the week, each class will have the opportunity to engage in a range of book-related activities, including watching and listening to authors and sharing favourite books and stories. Each day, children in all classes will take part in PATTER Time (Pupils and Teachers, Together Everyone Reading). Pupils may bring in a favourite book from home to read during this time, if they wish. We hope that all of our pupils will enjoy this special week full of book-related activities. [P1-P3 only] We hope that all of our pupils will enjoy this special week full of book-related activities. More information can be found here
National Anti- Bullying Week
As next week is National Anti-Bullying Week, this will be the focus for stage assemblies throughout the week. Children will also be involved in various activities and discussions within their class as well. As ongoing awareness around anti- bullying also features in our School and Nursery Improvement Plan for this session, we shall soon be recruiting, and training with input from the National Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), several Anti-Bullying Ambassadors from amongst our pupils. The NSPCC website also has some very interesting and useful guidance and information for parents and carers. You can find a link to this on our website within the PARENT tab. As always, if you have any concerns about your own child, please get in touch with us at any time and please don’t hesitate to do so. We are here to help and support all of our children to understand the importance, and seriousness, of being both respectful and kind to others.
[P7 only] P7 Residential
Please see P 7 Lockerbie letter regarding an information evening on Wednesday in relation to the Lockerbie residential trip.
That’s all from me this week, just a brief update today, and I will be back in touch again next Friday. I hope everyone has a good weekend.
