Christmas Jumper Day

A wee reminder that tomorrow (Friday) is Christmas Jumper Day. The children may come to school in their Christmas jumper/top. Please note this is a non-uniform event.  A donation of £1.00 is suggested. All monies raised will go to the Save the Children organisation. If the children are not taking part, they should come to school in school uniform as normal.

Primary 1 Christmas Party

Good morning,

Next Friday morning (20th of December) is our P1 Christmas Party. Children are welcome to come dressed in their party clothes. They are welcome to wear whatever they feel most comfortable in, for example party dress or a Christmas jumper. As it is an early release, children will not need to change into their school uniform and can stay in their party clothes during the school day.

Hopefully we will have a special visitor!

Many thanks,

Primary 1 Teachers.

P1P and P1S Nativity Costumes

All children will receive a note in their book bags this week confirming the clothes that we kindly ask you to provide for our Nativity performance. We have also written a generic list below for your convenience. Please note that we are not expecting anyone to buy anything new so please let us know if you have any problems sourcing anything. Most children can wear their indoor black plimsoles that are in school already unless stated. All clothes should be sent into school, in a bag labelled with your child’s name, no later than Friday 13th please. Thank you!

Please note that the consent forms for our library visit on Thursday 19th December will no longer be issued on Parent Pay. A paper consent form has been sent home today in the book bags. These should be completed and returned to school as soon as possible.

To date we are still looking for 4 helpers to come with us. Unfortunately if we cannot get the required number, we will need to cancel the visit. We shall be leaving school at 10.50am and returning by lunchtime. If you, or someone else at home, is able to help, please let us know by leaving a message on this blog post or sending a note in via the book bags.

Thanking you.
