Reminder-Dress Down Day

Just to remind parents that this Friday 11th October will be a dress down day. Children can wear their own clothes to school (no football strips please!)
We are currently fundraising for additional equipment for the playground to keep the children active and busy during break times so all funds raised from this Dress Down Day will go towards playground equipment for P1-P7. Please remember to send money in with your child on Friday – there is no set amount although the suggested minimum donation is £1.

 

With thanks

Education City- Home Access

If you subscribed to Education City Home Access your child should bring home their login sheet today (Thursday 3rd October) If you paid for subscription but do not receive login information please notify the school and we will ensure you gain access.

Education City is an online resource with stage appropriate activities, linked to Curriculum for Excellence levels. It is a valuable tool to help reinforce your child’s in-school learning. We currently use EducationCity.com in the school to reinforce Literacy, Numeracy and Science. By allowing access at home, your child will be able to access fun, engaging games.

Please note, as this is an opt-in subscription, access does not include Homework section tasks.

Education City.

How to use, the basics.

  1. When your child logs in they will see their home page.

2. Select Subjects

3.Select  Literacy, Numeracy or Science.

e.g. Select Numeracy

‘Wear Red Day’ Reminder

St. Cadoc’s will be taking part in ‘Wear Red Day’ on Friday October 4th. The day is organised by Show Racism The Red Card as a means to draw attention to their work and stop racism in society. There is no requirement for a donation but any that are made will be forwarded on to SRTRC to help them with their work. Obviously with the predominant school colour already being red we would be asking pupils to wear something extra that’s red in addition to their school polo shirt – trainers, shoes, leggings, a hairband – anything! Should pupils have a red top or t-shirt they’d like to wear instead of the school polo shirt that is fine too.

You said, We did

Thank you for taking the time to complete our feedback form following our Meet the Teacher event. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and valued.

Below is a brief overview of your comments along with some talking points from the event.

 

How would you rate your curriculum evening experience?

Some of your Comments

“Teacher presented well, confident and informative, I now feel well informed about what my son will be doing in the year and what I can do at home to help him achieve.”

“Helpful insights. Good opportunity to ask questions of the teacher.”

“Great introduction to my sons class and the teacher’s vision for the year ahead.”

“Insightful”

“It is always helpful to know what kids are doing at school. This really helps us to get involved more to provide kids with the necessary support. Many thanks.”

“Nice opportunity to see the classroom and meet the class teacher.”

“It is a good idea to have these nights at the start of term-it allows us to meet the teachers and find out more about how and what the children will be learning. Please do keep doing these evenings.”

Questions Raised

Are there plans for slides and presentations to go online?

Yes. All class presentations and slides will be uploaded to the website over the coming weeks.

Could we maybe have more formal approach and presentation in class?

As the focus of the evening is to meet the teacher, individual teachers are free to choose the best approach for their class and stage. We continue to provide guidance on possible presentations for staff to incorporate if they wish.

Are there plans for more curriculum events during the year?

Yes. Upcoming events include a Numeracy and Mathematics event and Literacy and English event.

Numeracy and Mathematics, 3:45-4:45pm.

Literacy and English 3:45-4:45pm.
