Primary 7 Welcome Evening and Making Maths Count

It was great to meet the parents and families of our Primary 7 children last night and we are looking forward to working with them in the future.

Please follow the link to a numeracy support pack from our maths department.  It includes some numeracy tasks that parents can do with their children.  Sharing in your child’s learning helps them to develop confidence.  This pack should give you some activities that you can enjoy with your child while helping them develop numeracy skills.  Numeracy skills are essential in all areas of the curriculum and in everyday life.

S1 Visit to Stepps Primary

Five of our S1 girls are going to be going to Stepps Primary to speak to P6 and P7.

The girls will be speaking to them about  coming to High School and asking them questions about what they’re looking forward to when they are at High School.

They have also made up some fun activities and games for them to do.  For example, they will give the pupils the chance to write their own timetables, write any questions they want to ask and lots more.

They also decided that they are going to show them their timetable to let them see what a real timetable looks like.

The girls are really excited about sharing their experiences of first year with the pupils and hope that the primary pupils will learn more and feel better about coming to Chryston High School.

Visiting Our Primary School – Stepps Primary


Visit to Stepps Primary


We went to Stepps Primary School on Monday  10 November.  We had prepared a power point and talk all about high school.  We wanted to go to a primary school because we wanted to share our experience in high school so far. 

The first thing we had to do in preparation for our visit was ask the P.E department what clubs are on, what day they are on and what time they run from.  We then collected information about the food, teachers and just about the school in general.  We used this information in our presentation to the P7 pupils.  Next, we thought up of two tasks for them to do. Finally, we put all this information into a power point and decided who was going to say what.

The day of the visit arrived.  We met Mrs Mullen at the end of second period and drove to Stepps.  When we arrived, we were greeted by Mr McKeever who took us to the P7 class room. We gave them pens and paper for their task and then started our power point. The first thing we talked about was the clubs and the P7s seemed to be interested in how many different clubs there are. We then told them about how brilliant the school dinners are here at CHS.   They were drooling at how delicious it sounded. After that, we handed them out two tasks about their thoughts and worries about coming to High School.  We calmed their nerves and they were buzzing about coming up in August. Once they finished the tasks, they asked some questions which we answered.  They gave us a sheet of paper with some more questions on it which we answered and sent back.

We have enjoyed this experience and can’t wait to see them in August.

Languages CPD at Chryston

SALTWe had a fantastic turnout for our TeachMeet event on Saturday. Seventy-five modern languages teaching professionals joined us at Chryston High School for a couple of hours of CPD and presentations from leading practitioners.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Chris Devlin, Joanne Sanderson, and Angela Boyd for sharing their experience and insight. Thanks also to everyone who came along and helped make the day such a huge success.

P6 Visit – Wednesday 18th May

On WedneClustersday 18th May, the P6 classes from our cluster primaries will come to us for a visit.  This will take place in the morning , across 3 periods, giving pupils a taste of what life is like at secondary school.  They will be allocated classes on arrival and then taken to each lesson by our more senior students.  Pupils will have the opportunity to experience both practical and non-practical lessons in their morning at CHS before being transported back to primary school for lunch.  Each P6 pupil should travel to their own primary school in the morning and should not come directly to the high school.

We look forward to meeting you all next week!
