We have been works on a block of media, with a focus on Christmas adverts. This week we are working on ‘Moz the Monster’. Yesterday, we used similes to describe him, then created our own monsters. Today, we used a Venn diagram to compare Moz to a variety of other well known monsters.
Our Junior Road Safety Officers out assessing how effective our ‘school keep clear markings’. They feel they are needing freshened up to be clearer to motorists.
Meet our proud new Pupil Council. They were delighted to have been voted in by their peers. Well deserved by all, I am looking forward to working with you!
Primary 3 and Primary 4 started preparing for our Christmas party this week. We practised our military two step and strip the willow and we were fabulous! We can’t wait to learn more dances next week!
P4 enjoyed our visit from Mrs Boland this afternoon! We learned a Christmas symbol called the christingle and what each part represents. We then got to make our own! Thank you Mrs Boland!
You will see from the lengthy post that the Christmas season is definitely upon us! There is so much to do at this time of year and we would like you to know that we appreciate your support at this busy time.
Monday December 3rd- We welcome Miss Gillian Forrester to Abronhill Primary School and Nursery Class. Miss Forrester is a class teacher and will be working throughout the school between now and June. She will be teaching primary 7 until the Christmas holidays.
Tuesday December 4th- An athlete from Sports for Schools will be with us this afternoon. Jade Nimmo excels as a long jumper and currently holds the Scottish record. She will be doing activities with all classes.
Wednesday December 5th- North Lanarkshire Council will be hosting visitors from our partner region in Strasbourg, France throughout this week. On Wednesday, we have been selected to have some of the visitors come to our school. I know our children will impress them with their hard work, skills and excellent behaviour.
Thursday December 6th- Christmas Lunch Day! Please note that if your child wants to have a lunch then he/she should have returned the slip showing their choice. This is our busiest lunch day of the year, therefore, we need to know exact numbers beforehand so the orders can be placed. If your child has not ordered a lunch in advance, then he/she must bring a packed lunch or be collected for a home lunch.
Friday December 7th- Christmas Fayre. Please see times below: Nursery: 10am-11am (nursery parents can also come in the afternoon but this is the nursery’s dedicated slot). P4-7: 11am-12pm P1-3: 1pm-2pm We appreciate all of your support at this event. The children have worked hard on their crafts and we would like to give a massive thank you to our hard working Parent Council who have organised the Fayre.
Sunday December 9th: It might be Sunday but we are still busy spreading Christmas cheer! Our choir will be participating in the Festival of Light along with many other choirs from around Cumbernauld. This event is held each year in different churches. This year the Festival of Light will take place at Sacred Heart Church, Kyle Road, Cumbernauld at 7.30pm. We look forward to meeting other choirs and hope you can come along to support.
Some of our Health and Wellbeing Committee spoke at today’s assembly to re launch our healthy snack incentive. This incentive will begin again on Monday and the healthiest class will receive an extra play time for their efforts. Remember only fruit and vegetables will gain points! Let the healthy competition commence!
P4 enjoyed sharing our learning at assembly this week. We enjoyed showing off all of our model volcanoes that we made as part of our homework.
