This week we have been thinking about how we can support the new P1 pupils as they get ready for school. The class thought back to when they started their school journey and we talked about all the things the new entrants may be unsure of or worried about. We drew and wrote down some pieces of advice for them and our work will be made into a book for them to look through before the holidays. We hope it helps them feel confident about starting school! Here are some of our suggestions.
What a super day and what a quick year! Today we have had time playing both indoors and outside in the nature garden…what a beautiful day for the last day of term! We really enjoyed signing all the P7 cards and wishing them well as they leave us. Some pupils spent the morning writing them notes…they’ll be such a miss! After lunch we headed outside to watch the P7’s V Teachers Rounders match at the pitch. Then it was back inside to say farewell to Mrs Hay and to celebrate her time with us with poems and music…and an ice lolly! Thank you all for your support over the year from me, Mrs Tait and Mrs Henderson. You’ve all be super to work with and we’ve enjoyed spending the year with your children. Have a super holiday and see you all back on the 22nd August.
This will be the last post of session 2016/17! We’ve all had a super year together. I look forward to having some of the P1 pupils back after the summer and I know they will help me settle the new P1 pupils in. Today has been a fun day at school…made all the better by some good news from Mrs Henderson!! We enjoyed a visit from Granny Smith who came in to play in the Teachers V Pupils netball match. Not sure she was much of an asset but it made us laugh!! Thank you for all the kind cards, messages and gifts I received today…very much appreciated. Thank you for your support and happy holidays everybody! See you on Wednesday 16th August!!
A PowerPoint was made for Open Afternoon which showed how we all looked on the first day of P1/2 and then we took an up-to-date photo to show how much we’ve grown and changed and the pupils told me about what they felt they had achieved over the year, what they were proud of and what they remembered. If you didn’t manage to see this on Open Afternoon…here it is! One more day to go!
