Good Morning.

I hope everyone is well. The days are flying in as we approach the end of another busy week. We hope that the P7 and P1 children are all set for their transitions now. A very different end to this school year.

Have a nice day and hopefully you will be able to stay dry in the outdoors today.

Good Morning.

Not such a nice day today but the gardens will welcome the water.  I hope everyone is well and keeping busy. Having something planned to do is very important in these different days.  Remember not to work too hard and take regular breaks. Maybe a board game today!

Have a lovely day.

Good morning.

Another sunny day. Only 3 weeks until the end of term, how time flies!

I hope you are all keeping yourselves active.  We still have Joe Wickes each morning and I know lots of you are going out on family walks. It’s great that we have the opportunity to do this. Something good out of the bad. Have a lovely day.

Nursery Siblings August 2020

When planning for a return to school in August, where possible, Primary School and Nursery age siblings will be allocated the same days in their respective establishments.

To help up to plan for this we would be grateful if you could inform us of any nursery age  siblings and the nursery that they currently attend or will attend in August 2020.

Please do this by emailing the details of your child and the name of the nursery they attend.  This will be of great help and will ensure we liaise with each nursery as appropriate.

Please send the email to bishoptonenquiries@renfrewshire.gov.uk

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Have a great day.

Good Morning Friday 5th June 2020

Friday again! Where do the weeks go?

I have to report that we have had an exceptional number of positive comments praising our Talent Show Stars! A great success. Well done to all of our entertaining finalists who did amazingly well. A plethora of talent.

Once again I must thank you all, pupils, parents and staff, for working so hard and giving Bishopton’s Best. Have a lovely weekend and hopefully we will see the sun back.

Bishy’s Got Talent 2020

The time has come to reveal this year’s talent!
Please take some time this afternoon to watch the talent from P1 to P7 in our school. Every year we give you the opportunity to audition for the talent show and then show your talent to the whole school in a live performance. This year, it had to be a bit different but I think you’ll agree that the end result is of a very high standard. Thank you to everyone who auditioned and a huge well done to them too.
Enjoy!

Good Morning 4 June 2020

Good morning everyone.  I hope this finds you safe and well.

I have to say that I have enjoyed popping in and out of your class meetings, even though I can’t see you all! It’s great to catch up and hear your news. Remember to watch your class posts this afternoon for the link to then talent show finalists. You’re in for a real treat.  What a talented bunch you are!

Have a good day and remember to have plenty of breaks and take some time for yourself.

Good Morning – 3 June 2020

I hope this finds you all fit and well.

Today we have to thank our neighbour, Jim, for painting the bright and colourful rainbow on to our wall.  This symbol of hope and togetherness really brightens up our school and reminds us to look out for each other in these very challenging times.  Thank you so much Jim.

I hope you all manage to get outside and enjoy the outdoors today as well as the good work you continue to do online. Have a lovely day.

Writing Competition –

We have so many talented writers in our school so why not write a story, poem, prose, article or anything you want about any British wildlife creature you fancy?  You could research your house bird (eagle, falcon, hawk or osprey) and let it inspire you! P4 pupils, you have been researching and learning about mini-beasts so use this knowledge to show off your writing skills. Or use one of the many topic tasks you have already written. Good luck!

Renfrewshire Parent Survey Response

Earlier this month, Renfrewshire Council asked parents and carers to submit their questions on schools and nurseries. Thank you to everyone who took part, there was a phenomenal response with more than 1,000 questions.  

Your most-asked questions were put to Steven Quinn, Director of Children’s Services, which you can see at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-schools. You can also find answers to many more questions there too. 

Thank you for your continued patience and support during this difficult time. We hope to see you back in our school as soon as it is safe to do so.

What an amazing sports day, it was such a delight to see the community spirit and house pride in all of the pictures. I have tried to fit as many pictures and clips in as I can but may need to make an extended copy with the amount of clips! It took days to go through.

Have a look at the links below to see a short montage of the day for each house:

Good morning – 01/06

Good morning everyone. I hope you had an amazing weekend enjoying the sunshine. We are set for a sunny Monday today so remember to stay safe in the sun, wear sun cream and stay hydrated.

Today is the beginning of a new week and a new month. You are doing great with your online learning and are making us very proud with the determination and  creativity you have shown. Let’s keep this up!

Remember to check in with your teacher and do what you can with the work that is set. All we can ask is that you do your best and don’t worry if things don’t go to plan. Have a great day!

 

*Parental Questionnaire – Closes Wednesday 3rd June*

Dear Parent/Carer,

Usually we would share our parental questionnaires with you at parents evening in May with an online version for those who were unable to attend.

As this has not been possible this year we are asking you all to take the time to fill in this online version.

The questionnaire will remain open until Wednesday 3rd June. Your feedback is very much appreciated as it helps us to make decisions as we move towards the new session in August.

Teachers will be posting the pupil questionnaires in Teams shortly and we would very much like for you to support and encourage your children to complete this.

Thank you in anticipation for taking the time to do this.

Best Regards

Mrs McNaught

Good Morning All.

Friday again and another beautiful day! I have to report that I have been helping Miss McDowall with the Talent Show auditions and I am sincerely impressed.  We have so much talent in Bishopton Primary and some that I had no idea existed… Very well done to those of you who have entered.  I really don’t know how the judges will decide.  You are all winners.

Mr McAvoy and the other teachers are busy collating the Sports Day results. As Mrs McLaren said yesterday, another impressive event. We loved seeing your pictures and videos. As well as all your hard work, the teachers had great fun seeing how well you all did.

Fingers crossed for a sunny weekend and remember to use your sun cream, wear a hat and get out and enjoy this lovely weather.

Mrs Davidson

Good morning – 28/05

Good morning everyone. Yesterday was a wonderful day. Our first ever Virtual Sports Day was a great success. We loved looking at all the brilliant pictures .

The work you are posting each day is great and we are all very proud of you all.  You are doing an amazing job! Remember to check in with your teachers and only do what works for you and you family.

Have a great day.
