This has been a very exciting week in Primary 4. We had the chance to watch the Nursery/P1 and P2/P3 nativities this week. They were fantastic and helped us to feel very Christmassy ahead of our Christmas party on Wednesday. The children had the best time dancing, playing games and eating delicious party food. They all looked fantastic! Next week the festive fun continues with some Christmas activities, Christmas jumper dress down day on Thursday and a visit to church on Friday.
This week we finished our reading books from this term. Please ensure that these are returned to school before the end of term. We will hand out new reading books during the first week back in January.
Today the children developed their understandings of the qualities we have been learning about in Health lessons throughout this term. The children created dramas based around the values of fairness, courage, respect, inclusion, kindness and honesty. Each group created superheroes who formed part of their drama. The end results were fantastic! 🙂
Christmas jumper competition entries due in tomorrow.
Reading books to be returned to school by Monday.
Christmas jumper dress down day on Thursday.
End of term next Friday @ 12:30.
Return to school on Monday 7th January 2018.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas when it comes. Thank you for all of your support in 2018 and we look forward to welcoming the children back in 2019 for Term 3 🙂

This week in Primary 1, we have had a very successful Dress Rehearsal in preparation for our Nativity Performances next Tuesday. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible if you are able to come along.
Please remember tomorrow (Friday 14th December) is the closing date for entries for the Christmas Jumper Decorating Competition.
Over the next few days you will see an invitation coming home with your child for a Families Connect Group beginning on 31st January. This will be time to spend with other parents and carers in school, learning and playing together as a family and looking at ways that you can help your child at home. This will be running every Thursday afternoon from 1.15-3.15 for 8 weeks. More information is available on your invitations and at a coffee afternoon on 17th January at 2.30.
Next Thursday Primary 1 will have their Christmas Party. As it is Christmas Jumper/ Dress Down day, children may come to school in their party outfits.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Primary 1 Teachers
This week Primary 2 and 3 have their dress rehearsal for the Nativity. It will be the first time the children will have their costumes on and use all the props. If your child came home with a costume letter please make sure their have the appropriate clothing for the performance. We have our fingers and toes crossed for a successful dress rehearsal.
Primary 2 have their final piece of homework due for the year on Thursday. Remember put all activities into the “share it” jotter and we will share our homework with our friends on Thursday 13th December. All children have a new reading book for this week. These will be collected back in on Monday 17th December.
The school is hosting a talent show on Monday 17th December and Primary 2 are doing their auditions for the show tomorrow. If your child has a talent that they would like to showcase to the class please encourage them to practise.
Primary 2 have their Christmas Party on Monday 17th December. This is in the afternoon so if your child is staying in school for lunch, please send them into school with the party outfit in a bag. We will allow time for children to change before their Christmas Party! We can’t wait for Christmas songs, dancing and games!

What a lot of fantastic superstars we have! The boys and girls did an amazing job with the Nativity and thank you for all of your support with line learning and costumes etc. We are really looking forward to our Christmas Party tomorrow afternoon. Children are allowed to bring in their party outfits to change into after lunch. We will also be watching a pantomime on Thursday morning to get us into the spirit of things.
Homework is still as normal for this week. Spelling is a mix of all patterns learnt so far and maths is a mix of addition and subtraction. Reading will also continue as normal but next week there will be no homework.
Have a good week!
Mrs Smith & Miss Rafferty
We hope you’re all having a good week. Primary 6 have had a fantastic week so far. On Monday we gathered together for our Primary 6 Christmas Party. We listened to lots of Christmas music, played some festive games, danced the Dashing White Sergeant and ate some delicious party food. We hope everyone had fun 🙂
We have been continuing to practise our P6 Assembly which is next Friday. A letter will be sent out shortly about clothing the children may need to bring in to wear for the assembly. You will receive a paper copy of this letter later on in the week and it will also be posted on the blog. We appreciate your support.
In RME we have begun learning about the Christmas story and the symbols associated with the Nativity story and the Christian religion in general. The children are beginning to understand the importance of symbols in our everyday life and are about to embark on the challenge of creating a symbol that represents our class – stay tuned for more! 🙂
A quick reminder of our new PE days:
Monday – Indoor PE
Thursday – Outdoor PE
Children should come prepared appropriately for both PE sessions.
Have a great week!

Here are some quick reminders about upcoming events in Primary 6.
The children have all been given a piece of big homework to complete for Friday 9th December. They are to present information about a current news story that has taken place in a European country in the form of a class talk. The children can use powerpoint, cue cards or a poster to help them to communicate their information. If your child needs any materials or support from school then they should please let their teacher know as soon as possible.
Primary 6 have begun practising for their assembly which will take place on Friday 9th December. Please note that this assembly is NOT open to parents/carers and is a school only assembly. Your child should have received song words home with them today. Please encourage them to learn the words to the song. Also, every child will have a speaking part for the assembly and this will be given home with them by the end of this week. These should be memorised by Monday 5th December at the latest. We are sure our assembly will be a great success! Thank you for your support with this.
The school Christmas Fair takes place on Friday 2nd December from 6pm-8pm. Tickets are available from the office or upon entry on the night. We would love to see as many children and parents there as possible. Please note: If your child is in the choir you do not need to pay for a ticket for them as they will be singing on the night.
P6 Christmas Party
Yes, it really is that time of year already! The Primary 6 Christmas Party will take place on the afternoon of Monday 5th December. Your child can bring party clothes to school in the morning to get changed into or can be collected at lunchtime and come back in their party clothes at 1:10pm. We are all looking forward to it 🙂
We hope this blog post was helpful at keeping you informed of what’s coming up in Primary 6. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
