P7S Weekly Round Up

Hello Primary 7,

Happy Friday! I thought I’d give a little round up of our fabulous week together.

Well done to everyone who took part in the House Captain interviews this week. I am so proud of everyone who put themselves forward. Everyone did an excellent job and you have made the decision very hard.

Please continue to come to school dressed for all weathers – remember we will be outside regardless. The weather is so changeable and unpredictable at them moment! If you would like to bring in separate shoes, appropriate for outdoor learning, bring them to school in a bag and they can be left on your peg in the cloakroom.

Our Japan personal project is due on Tuesday 29th September. I can’t wait to hear (and see) all your wonderful projects. Remember, please ask for any paper, IT time or anything else you might need from the school.

We have had a great start to Primary 7 and I am looking forward to the term (and year) ahead. You have adapted really well to all of the changes introduced in this school year and I am so thrilled with and proud of the effort and enthusiasm you approach every task with. Keep up all your hard work!

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe,

Mrs McLaren
