P1P/P1S: My Future Me

Workers Group of Different Professions clipart. Free download transparent .PNG | Creazilla

This week in class we have been discussing “My Future Me” and  the children were sharing their thoughts on what they would like to be when they are older. We had some fabulous suggestions from the children and both Mrs McAvoy and I were very impressed at the variety. Some of the children even shared why they wanted to do this job when they are older. Please ask them to share this with you too. After our discussion the children then drew their “Future Me” in their dream job. Please have a nosey at the photographs below.

We have put a copy of the PowerPoint that we looked at in class in our Files on Teams. Please have a look at it at home. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at it.

P1P/P1S – Wider Achievements

Cartoon Stars N2 free image

Each week at our assembly we share and acknowledge any wider achievements the children may have attained outside of school. This may be reaching a new level at swimming, taking part in a tournament or being awarded a new badge at Rainbows or Cubs. Please be aware it does not need to be club or sports related or winning an award. You may feel your child deserves recognition for other things they are a part of outside of school. They may have raised money for a charity. Or perhaps they regularly help with family members in some way.

Due to current restrictions we may not be made aware of such achievements as the children are unable to bring any badges, medals or cups into school. Therefore, we need your help to ensure they are still receiving the congratulations they deserve. Please let us know if your child has been a part of something that deserves recognition. You may do this by emailing the information. If your child has a new badge or cup or medal to show, please also send a photograph. This could even be posted on our Teams page for everyone to see. We will then make sure the information is shared at our next assembly. We have lots of achievers in our school and this deserves to be shared and recognised.

A copy of an achievement certificate can be found in our Files tab on Teams. Please print this off, complete it on behalf of your child and present it to them at home. If you are unable to print the certificate at home, please let us know and we will organise for one to be issued.
