Spelling Information Evening – 18th Feb 2020

Thank you,

Miss McDowall, Principal Teacher

Spelling Information Evening 6.30-7.30pm, Tuesday 18th February

A reminder about our Spelling Information Evening 6.30-7.30pm on Tuesday 18th February.

As you know, we changed our spelling programme at the start of the session and are now well underway with positive results. We would like to invite you to an information evening to further share how the programme works and what the children are experiencing in class. This will be a good opportunity for you to find out how to reinforce the strategies used in school at home.

If you are able to make the information evening, please complete the slip in your child’s bag (oldest child only).

Kind regards,

Karen McDowall, Principal Teacher

As part of our Eco School Action Plan the Global Citizenship group held a Guess the Teddy’s Birthday event to raise money to support the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

This was very successful and raised £200 for the charity. Renfrewshire Council very generously matched this amount giving us a grand total of £400!!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part in making this event such a success.

Our lucky winner who guessed the correct birthday was……..

Zoe (P3C) – congratulations, we hope you love your husky.

Thank you for your continued support.

Resources Shout-Out

Good evening,

Primary 1 are looking for a variety of resources to enhance their learning through play. After asking the children for their thoughts on what they would like to have more of in our classes and open area, they came up with the following ideas:

  • action figures – Power Rangers, Pokemon, etc.
  • animals – dinosaurs, unicorns, etc.
  • dolls with accessories
  • home corner items
  • garage and cars
  • lego

If you are able to help it would be much appreciated. Maybe you are thinking about having a wee clear-out before Christmas. If so, please keep us in mind. Any small items can be sent in with your child/children. Larger items may be handed into the office.

Thanking you in advance.

Primary 1 Teachers

Talent Show Auditions

Well done to all pupils who auditioned for the talent show. We had over 150 talented pupils who bravely showed their talent to judges over 8 lunchtime sessions. As usual the quality of talent on show was extremely high, however we can only put a certain amount forward.

Congratulations to those of you who got through to the Talent Shows on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th June. You should have received a note on Friday telling you if you made it. Please check with your group memebers if you are unsure.

Please bring in your costume and/or props on Monday. If your act requires music, please bring the clean version of the song in a CD or USB to Miss McDowall on Monday or Tuesday. Keep practising!

Litter & Waste Eco Group

Our Litter & Waste Eco Group have had a very busy time recently.  They have worked very hard and we are very proud of their Anti Litter Policy (click to view) achievements. We launched our Anti-litter Policy at last weeks Assembly and it will be displayed in every classroom and at points around the school.

As you know we are also recycling batteries through the Big Battery Hunt.  We have had an amazing reaction already with two buckets already full.  Once again, well done the Litter & Waste Group.

Finn & Nathan show off our hard work.

The busy Litter & Waste group also took part in a Litter Pick around the school. We collected 5 bags of rubbish from outside the playground! Well done to Nathan, Blair, Jack, Ryan, Heather, Freya, Mhairi and Amira for all their hard work and a big thank you to Mr Hutchison and Mrs Grant for their help.

A very successful litter pick

Big Pedal

A huge thank you to everyone children, parents and staff who made such a big effort to make the Big Pedal a huge success.  At the moment we are 13th in the UK but today’s numbers have still to be uploaded.  Thanks again to Mr Neill for checking bikes and scooters.

European Day of Languages 2018

 

Bonjour – Guten Tag – Hello

Just a reminder that Wednesday 26th September will be a non-uniform day as we will be celebrating European Day of Languages 2018.

Pupils are asked to wear house colours – Eagles- yellow, Hawk-green, Falcons-blue and Ospreys-red.

Children will be involved in a variety of activities with the rest of their house to celebrate all things French and to explore why it is useful to know more than one language.

We look forward to hearing from some specially invited speakers on their experiences with languages.
