Welcome Back!

Welcome back! We all hope you had a good break over Easter with the lovely weather that we have been having. It looks like we will be continuing with our virtual school life for a while longer. All the teachers have been busy preparing for this week back and have uploaded work into Teams. This week will be Miss Lynch’s last week and Mrs Davies and Mrs Bate will take care of the P2 Team site in the meantime. We would like to thank Miss Lynch for all her hard work and we wish her well for the future.

We fully appreciate how challenging learning and working from home can be so please make sure that you look after yourselves and do not put additional pressure on your families at the difficult time. Do what works for your situation. When we get back, we have an excellent team of staff that will fill in any gaps in learning – this is what they are fantatstic at doing. Try to keep reading, share books, cook or do PE with Joe. I have now mastered the art of Tik-Tok!

The BBC have started a series of programmes that can be accessed online or through the red button on your remote to support learning – not only do they have over 200 teachers delivering lessons but the presenters also include Brian Cox teaching key science topics and Manchester City footballer, Sergio Aguero teaching Spanish.

We would like all our pupils to be on Teams so if you haven’t been on yet please try to do this. If you need any help please email into the Holmston mail account.

We will keep you updated regularly so please check back and follow us on Twitter for further ideas.

Welcome Back!

It was fantastic to see everyone back after the summer break and to meet our new families. We have an exciting term  planned with Primary 4 off to Vikingar and the Viking Village; P6 off to Culzean and our P7s  to Dolphin House. We will also be starting a project with Southcraig School – initially with our P7 class and then across the school. These are just a few of the events coming up in the next few weeks. An updated ‘dates for your diary’ is available under the school information section.

We hope you will be able to come along and meet the new classes on Friday 31st August from 2.30pm for an informal drop in.
