On Friday the whole school came together to celebrate World of Work Week. We talked about the Life Skills that we will need and a little bit about the people that came into school this week.
Four Primary 7s spoke about their time on a work placement. They showed us pictures and talked about their experience.
Every year group gave a presentation on the healthy snack they plan to make and sell as part of our Enterprise work. All the presentations were excellent and we look forward to trying the healthy snacks!
On Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 March the photographer from Tempest is coming to the school to take photographs for all the Primary classes.
P1 and P7 will have class, individual and family photographs taken and P 2 – 6 will have individual and family photographs taken. If you would like a family photograph please send a letter to your older child’s class teacher.
I would ask that the children wear a white shirt and school tie on these days if at all possible.
The whole school had a great time playing and/or supporting their Houses in our annual competition. Games took place throughout the day organised by Mrs Park and the House Captains.
Well done to everyone who took part and for supporting your House with such enthusiasm!
We are looking forward to welcoming many visitors to West over the next few days who will be talking about their jobs and skills.
Look out for blog updates about World of Work Week from our new bloggers.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. It’s great to see the children back and hear all their Christmas stories. We were so proud of their wonderful Nativity performance and I know they all enjoyed meeting Santa at the end of last term.
This term we will be teaching skills and knowledge and understanding through the themes of Sun, Moon and Stars and Eid Il Fitr.
We will also be looking at Chinese New Year and Robert Burns. The children continue to have regular reading, spelling and maths homework and your support in this is vital to your child’s success. Could you please ensure that your child brings their reading book to school every day as they may use this in class even when it is not a reading day.
We would really appreciate more volunteers from Primary 2 parents to come in and talk about their job at World of Work week. We want the children to hear about as many different occupations as possible and I would encourage you to play a role in this. Teachers are on hand to ask relevant questions and the sessions are very short and informal. If you are interested please contact Mrs.Wiszniewski. The week starts on Monday 22nd February.
Teachers are keen to work in partnership with parents and strive to keep you informed. There will be a parents evening in April however please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns before that. We would like to see parents in and around the school on a more regular basis and would like to offer library sessions during World Book Week for you to visit the school library with your child during this week.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Mrs.Ormond and P2 staff.
