Primary 6 – 31.3.17

Hello everyone

Primary 6 and 7 put on two excellent performances of “Alice the Musical” on Wednesday. We were all amazed with the high standard of the singing, acting, dancing and narration. We are so proud of all the children. Their dedication, hard work and commitment made this a show to remember! Thank you for all your support with helping children to learn lines, dances and providing costumes for the show. We really appreciate it 🙂

In Primary 6 this week we have begun preparing for our P6 Class Assembly which will take place on Friday 28th April at 11:15am in the new school hall. We have been decorating scenery and almost everyone has now been allocated parts. The remaining parts will be allocated and lines handed out on the first day back after the Easter Holidays. Any assistance you could provide the children with in learning their lines would be appreciated.

Thank you to all the children who handed in their Titanic Fact Files this week. They look fabulous and it is clear the children worked very hard on these personal projects. Well done everyone.

This week we have said goodbye to two very special members of staff. First, Eveline who has worked in the school kitchen since 2001. The children made a card in the shape of a school dinner tray which was presented to her today at assembly. Some children also said their favourite memories of Eveline.

The other member of staff leaving us yesterday was Miss Inglis the PE specialist. She has made a very positive impact on the children in the class, with many choosing to be part of her running after school club. We appreciate everything she did for us. We are hopeful that running club might continue after the holidays with another member of staff leading it. We will let the children know after the holidays if this is the case. We wish both Miss Inglis and Eveline well in the future.

Thank you for all your support. Have a relaxing and enjoyable Easter Holiday!

Miss Clark, Mrs Wylie & Mrs Kelly.

Primary 7 – 31.03.17

A fantastic show was performed on Wednesday! The children worked very hard learning lines, songs and stage directions and their performance was outstanding! Thank you for all of your support in helping the children achieve this level of excellence. Thank you for an amazing turn out, the audience really helped the children perform to their best. The next show for P7 will be our Leavers Assembly!

Miss Thomson made her final visit to P7G working on algebra. This was a scary thought at first but by the end everyone was solving algebraic equations. Well done!

The children watched the film version of the book they had been reading in Literacy Circles – Goodnight Mr Tom, The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. The children discusses the differences and similarities between their books and the films.

The children have been working on memories about Eveline our dinner lady. There will be a special assembly today to wish her good luck in the next chapter of her life. Many of the children will miss her.

The children will be sharing what they have been working on up till now on their My Life So far. They will have an opportunity to work on this in school next term but most of it will need to be completed at home. The finished product should be handed in by Friday 2nd June. We look forward to reading the finished results.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy and holiday.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Primary 7 – 24.03.17

Hello,

It has been another busy week for Primary 7. On Wednesday the children performed their show for the rest of the school and the nursery. It was a great success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed watching Alice the Musical. Thank you to everyone who has helped us to provide costumes for the show. There are still a few children who still have not brought in their costumes – could they please do so for Monday. Tickets are selling fast for the evening performance so if you would still like to buy tickets please send your form in as soon as possible.

The children have been delivering their WW2 class talks. It is obvious that many children have spent a long time researching and preparing their class talks. Well done to these children!

The children have been writing imaginative stories, trying to include all the information that they have learned about WW2. The most written so far is 6 pages – what a lot of reading we will have to do!

Yesterday we took part in Earth Hour by designing hearts to show what we love about nature and the environment. Look out for these on the Earth Hour trees that will be appearing in the corridors very soon.

We are taking part in Red Nose Day today. The children will be dressing down and buying cakes at the bake sale. If your child has forgotten to bring their donation for dressing down then please send it in on Monday.

 

Reminders:

Spelling homework

Maths homework

Last week of Literacy circles – please ensure all homework booklets are up to date and books handed in on Monday

School show 1.30 and 6.30 on Wednesday

 

Thank you for your continued support,
