Our First Week in Room 13

We have certainly had a busy first week in Room 13 with P3/4.  We have been working hard to learn new routines and all about our new classmates and teacher. We have also been revising our phonemes from last year as well as practising our addition and subtraction skills!

Our PE days are Monday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor).  Kit can be brought in on a Monday and taken home on a Friday afternoon.

Please follow our class Twitter page @MissSTurton for weekly updates on our learning and any notices or reminders.
Please also check your child’s homework diary regularly for homework and communication from Miss Turton.

Miss Turton thinks we have got off to a fantastic start in Room 13 and is very much looking forward to working with all the children this year.

Primary 7 Road Safety Performance

Primary 7 thoroughly enjoyed their Road Safety performance yesterday afternoon.

The performance emphasised the importance of staying safe when walking to school.  The characters in the play showed how easy it was to give in to peer pressure and act silly near traffic.  The children soon realised how silly behaviour can have a huge impact on their lives – for all the wrong reasons.

Why not ask us what we’ve learned?

Transition Dates for New Primary 1 Pupils

We are looking forward to welcoming all our new Primary 1 pupils this week for the last of our planned transition events.  These events are for all pupils beginning in Primary 1.

Induction Afternoon

Our Primary 1 Induction Afternoon will take place on Wednesday 10th June at 1.45pm – 2.45pm. Please bring your child to the infant entrance of the school. On arrival children will be met by a member of school staff and directed to the correct classroom for the afternoon.

During the visit the children will have the opportunity to meet their class teacher and experience some of the activities, which will take place in Primary 1.

Parents/carers will have the opportunity to learn more about the school, which will provide information about your child’s first year.


School Lunch Visit

Pupils are invited to come along for a school lunch on Thursday 11th June at 11am.  Due to capacity in the dinner hall we can only accommodate one adult to accompany each child. Pupils and adults will be able to sample our school lunch menu free of charge and see the variety of foods on offer.

Please telephone the school on the above number to confirm you attendance at both induction events no later than Tuesday 9th June.

We look forward to seeing you then.

Transition Visits from Nursery

Today we had all the boys and girls who will be starting Lawmuir in August come and visit us. They had lots of fun in class, meeting some friends and even took part in a ‘Shape Treasure Hunt’. Parents enjoyed a cup of tea and a biscuit with Lucy Roy our Parent Support Worker.

Parents were also issued with an Early Numeracy Guide to help prepare for school in August.
