P1 – P3 Future Me Campaign

future-meThe ‘Future Me’ campaign as part of Read, Write, Count, encourages families across Scotland to share their children’s dreams for the future.

‘Future Me’ aims to support families to start a conversation with their P1-3 children about their hopes and aspirations, which will ultimately help to improve their lives in the future. It asks families to share those dreams, either as a picture, letter or film on the ‘Future Me’ wall at www.futureme.scot. The campaign builds on existing Scottish Government efforts to tackle educational inequalities and raise attainment in early years and beyond. With increasing time pressures on families, Read, Write, Count highlights easy activities built around everyday things families are already doing. Whether it’s going to the shops, travelling to school or at mealtimes, Read, Write, Count offers parents and carers simple ideas that will help children do their best at school.

All families in P1 – P3 will recieve a ‘Future Me’ leaflet home from school.

Bag Pack

Thank you to Morissons for letting us bag pack yesterday. The P5, P6 and P7 along with staff and parents raised a superb £560 to go towards our school library refurbishment. We really appreciate the generous donations made by the customers.

Super Gritter Visit

gritterMr Stewart came into school with his super gritter to give the pupils the opportunity to discover how Ayrshire’s roads are kept free of snow and ice during winter weather. The pupils enjoyed the workshop and learning about the importance of delivering winter services within our local communities and they especially loved the opportunity to get up close with the gritters to see how they operate.
