Our Bookbug Gifting Ceremonies were a great success. The joy of the moment is clear to see on the faces of all. Thank you to everyone who came to join us, special times indeed! Thank you also to Mrs McMaster, you were a pleasure to watch. @scottishbooktrust @FMReadChallenge
The first transition visit was a great success, the children enthusiastically participated in all the activities and worked really well with their buddies. The buddies loved it and think our future P1s are just fab!
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.
The children are using their imaginations and solving problems to construct models using loose parts. #loosepartsplay #nursery #technology
The children had lots of fun during their sponsored walk looking for signs of Autumn and enjoyed snack outdoor to raise money for their Nursery funds. Thank you very much for supporting us.
The school will now be paperless and all correspondence/alerts will be sent through the email address you have supplied the school with. We have had a great response to this with 174 out of 188 parents/guardians supplying us with an email address. If you haven’t already given us an email address it is your responsibility to call into the school office to collect any correspondence that we may generate.
There is also a letters section under the school information menu on this website, which will be updated weekly with correspondence. Alternatively, you can click on the image below to take you to the letters section.
Thanks you for your support with our transition to a paperless system.
Monday 3rd: A group of children will be helping out at the Abronhill Parish Church Lunch Club.
Tuesday 4th: Parent/Carer Meetings take place from 3:15-8:30pm. Appointment times and target sheets were sent home on Friday. Please make sure you check your appointment time and bring your target sheets with you.
The children have been choosing the sea creature that they want to learn more about. This week they had the opportunity to make their choice of creature visible on a sea-life chart.
During this week parents and children took part in their last session of Big Chef Little Chef. Throughout the sessions the children have grown in confidence to taste a variety of fruit and vegetables. Their last creation was a wrap and a fruit car. From the feed back from parents and the children it appears that it has been an enjoyable experience.
During this week the children have once again enjoyed a lot of outdoor play activities. They also enjoy having snack outdoors.
At the end of the week parents and children went on a visit to Deep Sea World for our nursery trip.
