Nursery Home Learning Grid

Dear Parents/Carers

And just like that it is June!  Thankfully the weather seems to be determined to keep the sun shining to help lift our spirits and aid some socially distanced catch ups with family and friends.

I have attached an updated home learning grid to support you and your child as you continue to learn and play at home.

Home Learning Grid 4

I hope you find the resources useful, but please remember that there is no expectation that your child completes the activities on the grid.  Please continue to play and learn in a way that suits you and your family’s circumstances – and remember that learning opportunities can be found everywhere, from helping make dinner to tidying away their toys.

We love seeing the pictures of the boys and girls playing and learning at home – keep sending your photos to Mrs Norton at gw17nortonvictoria@glow.sch.uk.

Thank you as always for your support.

Nursery Home Learning Grid

Dear Parents/Carers

We hope managed to enjoy the recent bank holiday, despite the change in the weather – although it did leave some great puddles to splash in!  Hopefully the sun is back to stay for a few more days now!

We have attached an updated home learning grid to support you and your family as you continue to learn from home.  We hope you find the resources and activities useful, but please remember that there is no expectation or pressure for your child to complete all of the activities on the grid.  Please continue to encourage them to play and learn at their own place and in a way that suits you and your family circumstances.

Home Learning Grid 3

Being part of your child’s learning and achievements is a privilege for us at Newton Farm Nursery and we would like to keep in touch with you even though our nursery is closed.  We are really enjoying seeing all of your pictures from home – if you would like to share your child’s learning journey with us, or any special achievements your child has made at home please e-mail your pictures or story to Mrs Norton at gw17nortonvictoria@glow.sch.uk

We hope the resources provided are helpful and supportive during this time.  We wish you and your families well and hope you enjoy exploring, playing and learning together.

Thank you as always for all your support.

Respect Mascots

Ms Hogg and Mrs Webber are missing their weekly get togethers at assembly so much that they have been doing virtual assemblies on Google Classroom for the last few weeks.

We have been looking at our school values and we challenged pupils to create a mascot for Respect. If you click on the video below, you’ll see the fantastic entries that we received across the school.

We’ll be setting this challenge for each value over the coming weeks, so keep a look out on Google Classroom and get creating! When we’re back at school, we’ll be asking the Pupil Council to choose a mascot for each school value.

Sun and rainbow. | Clip art, My cute love, Rainbow kids

Dear Nursery Parents/Carers

We hope you and your family are staying well and you have enjoyed the sun over the long bank holiday weekend.

Please find attached an updated nursery home learning grid to give you some more ideas of activities you can do at home with your child. We hope you find the resources useful, but please remember that there is no pressure or expectation that your child completes all of the activities on the grid.  Please continue to encourage them to play and learn at their own place and in a way that suits you and your family.

Home Learning Grid 2

We love seeing pictures of what the nursery boys and girls have been doing at home.  If you would like to share your child’s learning journey – either doing an activity from the grid, or something else – we would love to hear from you.  Please e-mail your pictures or story to Mrs Norton at gw17nortonvictoria@glow.sch.uk

We wish you and your families well as you continue to play, explore and learn together.

Thank you as always for your support

Primary 7 Transition to Uddingston Grammar

Uddingston Grammar have asked our Primary 7 pupils to complete a questionnaire so that they can get to know them better. The answers will also be the basis for some Q&A sessions that they plan to hold for P7s.
To fill in the questionnaire, Primary 7 pupils need to log on to Glow and then click on the link below.
https://forms.gle/vxNoQp6pWjbzgThR8
I’ve also attached a letter sent out by Mrs McTiernan who is DHT at Uddingston Grammar and who has responsibility for S1 and S2.
Lastly, Uddingston Grammar have set up a Twiiter account just for P7s who are moving on to S1. You can find it on Twitter using @7_ugs. Keep an eye on it for information, videos from staff and even some exciting challenges. I’ll post everything that I can on Google Classroom and on the blog too, so that if you don’t have Twitter, you can still see what’s going on.
