Happy 60th Birthday Keir Hardie Memorial Primary

Today saw us enjoying a birthday party to celebrate 60 years of Keir Hardie Memorial Prinary School. The children decided they would like a “street party” to mark the event.

All classes designed and made their own party hats, table mats and even made all their own party food!

We had entertainment from the “Amazing James!” and AMAZING he was!! You could hear the shrieks of laughter across Newarthill!

We finished the party with some games and dancing and it is safe to say every child had an absolute ball!!

A big thank you to all our parents and caters for helping out children look so smart and party ready in their glad rags! We hope you enjoy looking at some of the photos and videos of our event!

Rookie Rockstars

February 8, 2017 by Miss Melvin | 0 comments

The children have all been having a great time this week learning the songs for our Rookie Rockstars concert. Each song has a valuable lesson to be learned through it and the children have been talking about the meaning of the songs during our Rookie Rockstars sessions and in class. Each morning they have been perfoming a rock warm up, learning the songs, taking part in question time sessions and competing during the challenge time. Here is some feedback from the children so far –

“The songs are all anti-bullying and learning how to treat each other nicely.” Elysa P5

“I love the music from Rookie Rockstars, it’s good to dance to.” Robert P5

“I like learning the dances and the actions that go along with the songs.” Jessica P5

“I love dancing to Rookie Rockstars, I like doing the air guitar.” Finlay P P5

“The songs are very meaningful and they help me to be confident.” Abi S P5

Below are some sneak peek pictures of what we have been getting up so far. We have lots of videos to show you too but we will keep those until after the concert so it is a surprise!

Home Learning Survey

school-badge-picSince August we have piloting a new approach to home learning across the school. Having reviewed current research from a variety of sources, we adapted our home learning activities and have tried to develop closer links between school learning and life situations.

We value the views and opinions of both parents’ and pupils’ and are keen to gather feedback on the programme so far and how we could improve upon this.

We would appreciate if you could complete the Home Learning questionnaire at home and return to school by Friday 20th January.  All pupils were issued with this on Friday.  Should you require another copy please contact the school.
