Good afternoon everyone

Lots of Learning Happening in Netherlee…?
We have had a really good week in school, with the number of positive cases continuing to fall each day. Thank you greatly for your ongoing vigilance with following all testing and isolation guidance. As a reminder, if your child is lateral flow testing negative first thing in the morning on day 6, and 24 hours later on day 7, your child is more than welcome to return to school. The children are settled and working hard in all aspects of the curriculum and school life. We have lots of exciting and very interesting learning taking place and I would urge you to join us on our Twitter Feed to share lots of this with us. All children from across the school are busy working as the Pupil Parliament, led by our P7 School Councillors, on their new missions and campaigns, chosen by them for this term. I’m sure if you ask your child about this, they will be able to let you know what they are working on just now or again, visit us on Twitter in the coming weeks to find out more. We also have classes getting ready to follow some Scottish recipes in preparation for Burns Day and their Scottish Topics that they have been enjoying in class and some children are getting involved in RSPB Big Garden/School Birdwatch 2022. All families can join in with the Big Garden Birdwatch as it is for everyone, whether you’re a complete beginner or a birding expert. Simply help your child to count the birds you see in your garden, from your window or balcony or in your local park for one hour between 28 and 30 January 2022. Further information about the survey is available here: RSPB. We would love to see your own Tweets about this, please remember to tag @sand_nc, so we can share your fun with you.

School Uniform
We have now returned to placing our Big Red Uniform Donations Box outside the main front door, just at the top of the steps. As before, we would appreciate you dropping off any washed, good quality and pre-loved uniform items that your child has outgrown or no longer needs. We will then sort these and have them available for you to help yourself from our Uniform Recycling Rails. From Monday, please just pop up at any time throughout each week, whenever you have any such items to donate- thank you from all children and families and also from the environment too! Please have a read of the leaflet from the PTA regarding new badged uniform sale and our pre-loved rail.
