P4M Learning Profiles

The majority of P4M’s learning profiles have been emailed to you. The rest will be emailed when I receive an email address or I will send a paper copy home if you prefer.

I would really appreciate any feedback or comments on your child’s profile as well as confirmation that you have received the profile.

Kind regards,

Miss McDowall

You might not need to complete these in your Spelling Homework jotter. I have set up the spelling lists on Spelling City for you to play and practise. You do not need to do this but if you think it might help you to remember the spelling rule, please give it a go! Click the link below to find your list. https://www.spellingcity.com/MissMcDowall/

Growth Mindset Affirmation of the Week:

I see value in failure because I learn something new!

Clothes and Props for the Show

Please bring in something Christmassy (jumper, tinsel etc) to wear for our Christmas Around the World Concert on Wednesday 11th December. We are also looking for the following items but please do not buy anything if you don’t have them at home:

  • sombrero
  • Aussie hat (with corks)
  • sunglasses
  • Santa hat
  • reindeer antlers
  • red nose
  • ‘See you Jimmy’ hat
  • tartan scarf
  • Scotland scarf

If you have more than one of these and would be happy for someone to borrow, that would be great. Thank you!

ParentPay Permission

Thank you to everyone who has already ticked the permission box in ParentPay for our visit to the Cornerstone. Apologies again about the trouble but because we cannot see what you see it makes it difficult to explain.

However, as all P4 parents have now activated their account and the trip has been set up you should now be able to give permission. In ParentPay you should see a box for ‘Other Items‘. If you click on this you should see an option for the Cornerstone visit which is what should be clicked on.

Thank you in advance.

P4 Cornerstone Visit – ParentPay

You should have all received the email from ParentPay about the visit to the Cornerstone next Thursday 12th December. From this email you should now be able to give permission for the visit.

We will be having our Christmas Lunch at 11.30am, regardless of whether your child is having a school meal or packed lunch. We will be leaving the school at 12.30pm to arrive at the Cornerstone at 12.45pm. If your child is a home lunch we would appreciate if you could drop them at the Cornerstone when they have finished their lunch.

Thank you in advance.

Christmas Choir to perform at school Christmas Fair

We have enough children who have returned forms to enable us to go ahead and perform at the School Fair on Saturday.                             We have our final rehearsal tomorrow (Wednesday) at lunch time – 12.15 in Miss Mackay’s classroom.  It would be good if you bring a packed lunch.                                                                                                                      On Saturday, we will be performing at 2 o’clock for about 20 minutes on the stage.  We will meet at 1.55pm in the P7 cloakroom near the stage.

Hope to see you all tomorrow.                                                                                      Miss Mackay and Miss Cuthill

Christmas postboxes

It’s that time of year again.  The Christmas postboxes are out in school.   If children wish to post a Christmas card to someone in school please put the child’s name and class on the envelope.  If you think there are 2 people with the same name please put second initial too eg. Sam M . The P3 Christmas posties will deliver your card for you.
