Spelling Help -Information for Parents

Spelling Leaflet for Parents

Please read the above leaflet to help support your child with their spelling. The leaflet explains the strategies and routines we use in school and home learning to teach spelling sounds and patterns. It explains the technical terms and the child friendly language we use. It also gives you an overview of what is taught each day in school. We hope you find this useful.

Kind regards,

Miss McDowall and the Spelling Working Party

Christmas Art Day P5-7

This year we had to change our Christmas Art Day but that didn’t stop us having festive fun and making epic displays. We decided to take this opportunity to thank all of the amazing key workers who have helped us during the pandemic. Every pupil decorated and wrote a message on their own little tree tag to decorate our new Christmas tree.

P5 thank the transport services (bus, trains and lorries), P6 thank education and childcare and P7 thank the food services.
