We hope you all had a lovely October holiday. It has been nice hearing about all your exciting adventures from the children.
Next week the Primary 7 children will begin to sell poppies for remembrance day. It is a minimum donation of 50p for each poppy, with £1 being preferable. Please ensure your child knows there is money in their bag.
We are changing the homework organisation slightly. It is a challenge to get all the homework marked and new homework issued within the same day therefore homework will be collected on a Tuesday and reissued on a Wednesday. This is on a fortnightly basis and you can find the due date on the top of the homework sheet. Please ensure your child brings their reading bag, reading book and blue reading log to school every day.
This week Miss Pringle and Miss Christy’s classes had a visit from Katie from the RSPB. She taught us all about different animals habitats and gave us some simple ideas to begin to create homes for small animals within our playground. We used the large field to hunt for different habitats and played games which encouraged us to think about the challenges small animals face to find food and shelter. This was a wonderful experience and Mrs Steel’s class are looking forward to their RSPB visit next Tuesday.
