A farewell to our lovely primary sevens. Some memories and goodbyes from across the school.
Today’s announcement from the Scottish Government outlines the plan to reopen all schools on a full time basis from August.
We are currently considering the practicalities and implications of this announcement and will await further clarification and guidance from government, particularly in relation to public health and scientific advice.
Our priority is the safety of our pupils and staff across our network of primary, secondary and ASN schools, as well as our early learning and childcare settings.
We understand that you will have questions, and as this news was only announced today, we will make further information available on how this impacts on our schools and facilities in the coming days.
We are preparing for pupils to return full-time to school on 12 August and we will be working closely with our schools and partners, including our early years and childcare provision to establish our plans, which we will communicate as soon as we are in a position to.
One our P1-4 children has become a mummy to some beautiful butterflies! Congratulations!
Here are some little activities for you all!
No spelling words or times tables this week (Although you can ALWAYS practice these things. Even in your sleep!) Instead I’ve made up some summer activities and a fun wordsearch you can do.
Thank you to everyone who has been working hard at your activities, or anything else you have been doing over the last few months. Hopefully that will continue today with our Virtual Sports Day, which you can find out about below this little fellow, who has already started the competition…
Monday 22nd June is the big day! We would love all of our pupils and families to participate. Banton and Chapelgreen Primaries have entered a joint team for this event.
This picture tells you the timeline for the day.
Don’t worry if you don;t have a printer to print off the scorecared. You can use a pencil and paper to record the scores and send them in to Mrs Rae via email.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Above all, this is a fun event and an opportunity for our pupils and families to get outside and enjoy themselves. Remember, EVERYONE can participate and ALL scores will be counted. So, grab your trainers and get the whole household involved in some active outdoor fun and games.
Scores can be emailed to Mrs Rae.
Active Schools are also encouraging you to tweet photos of you participating to @NLActiveSchools using #NLSportsDay. There is a chance to win £50 of sporting equipment for the school.
Happy Nature Photography Day!
To celebrate, try and take some nature photographs this week. The photos could be of animals, wildlife, scenery…anything nature-based!
To celebrate even more, here are some activities to keep you busy this week.
We will have another P1-4 Teams Meeting this week on Thursday at 10am. Nothing to prepare except your large brains, so we can have a fun little quiz!
Hope to see (or hear) you there!
Here is our dance challenge video with the winners of each category. Many thanks to EVERYONE who participated. Your efforts are, as always, much appreciated.
Certificates will be emailed to the winners later today.
It was great to be able to speak to some of you last week during our Teams Meeting! Your reward is these lovely weekly activities!
Let’s try and have another P1-4 Teams Meeting this week. We will have it at the same time – 10am on Thursday. This time I would like you to bring something along to the meeting. Between now and then, I would like you to write a short story about your favourite thing that you have done since being away from school these last couple of months. It doesn’t have to be pages and pages and pages and pages. It can be a few sentences or a little longer if you like. Just remember, you are going to be reading this out LIVE ON AIR, so make it super interesting (please). You can start with…
My favourite thing that I have done since being away from school is…
Write about your favourite thing, tell us about it, and let us know why you enjoyed it so much!
It’s been great to see more and more of you posting messages in our Teams chat so let’s try and keep that up!
In the meantime, here is a picture of a penguin, for absolutely no reason other than the fact I think penguins are funny.
I’ve just posted a few screenshots from the work the biggies have been doing on the Biggies Blog:
As every week passes, I’m getting more and more pictures sent to me, which is making me a happy Mr McNab! Have a little look through the pictures below to see what our P1-4s have been doing this week!
Also, massive congratulation to one of our superstars who amazingly climbed his stairs 316 times – UP AND DOWN – which is the equivalent of the height of Ben Nevis. He managed to raise £440 for Radio Clyde Cash For Kids. Fantastic achievement!
