Reading Buddies

On Friday 17th November, Mrs. Hawthorn was joined by many P5-P7 pupils at the Reading Buddy Workshop. She was delighted to welcome all of the enthusiastic volunteers who were keen to learn more about how they can help other children in our school to develop their Literacy skills. Reading buddies is a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved and has been successful in Ravenswood Primary for a number of years.

Keep an eye on Twitter (@RavenswoodPS) to see how our children help each other to become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Effective Contributors and Responsible Citizens.

Team work really does make the dream work!

Charitable Classes

Every year our school aims to support a mixture of Local, National and International charities. This was a very popular choice from our initial home learning grid. Thank you to everyone who discussed different charities at home for our classes to consider.

Mrs Simpson collated all of the choices and made a super handy leaflet with all of the chosen charities for the year. It’s going to be fun seeing what every class comes up with to raise funds to send. We will keep you posted nearer to the time.

Primary 1 Transition Feedback

Our new Primary 1 pupils have settled well in to their first year at school. Every day they impress us with their manners, learning and achievements. We are so lucky to have such wonderful additions to our school.

We are very keen to get feedback about our transition process from Nursery to Primary. At the beginning of the year we asked all P1 parents and carers to fill in a quick survey to help us improve our transition process.

Thank you to everyone who took time to give us feedback, we appreciate all of your comments. Attached is a copy of our findings.
