Christmas Cards and Gifts

There was much excitement today as the children’s Christmas cards arrived.  If you didn’t get yours they will be sent home with your child tomorrow.  The Parent Council are aware of errors in printing and would ask parents to contact them so they can work with the company to organise a refund.  They apologise for any inconvenience and upset this has caused.  The school would like to thank those who have supported this fundraising venture and hope everyone has a lovely festive break.

Chocolate Friday – November 27th

Friday 27th November will be ‘Chocolate Friday’.  Children can come dressed down but instead of £1, it would be much appreciated if they could bring a chocolate donation for the Tombola stall which we will hold in school on Friday 4th December.

If your child wishes to participate in the Chocolate Tombola on Friday 4th December, they should bring their money in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with their name and how many tickets they wish to purchase.

Further news of our Christmas class enterprise items will follow in the near future.

Thanks for your support with our Christmas fundraising.

It is hoped that we will have the cards/gifts to be delivered to you via your child at school on 7th or 8th December, which should allow you enough time to get your cards written.

Weekly Blog – 11.9.2020

Math – this week for maths we were doing loads of things like rounding and we were rounding 5 digit numbers. Then we did subtraction and addition just to revise it and Mrs T gave us a challenge to think of every method for subtraction and addition. We did mental math as well and we had to multiply 2 digit multiply 3 digit numbers and then do it in our head. It was probably the hardest math so far this week, we also did a wee bit of Sumdog too.

Literacy-for literacy this week we continued reading, Holes our new book we are reading as a class and we had some activities. We had to choose a character and it use a Role On The Wall template to write describing words about them, then find a quote in the book that represented the adjective. It was hard but I found it really fun. We started doing comprehension again and this week it was about Asterix. At first we didn’t know what Asterix was so Mrs T showed us a video about it and we found it really funny.

ICT – We used Monday as a project day to write and redraft our Buddy Letters. We wanted to check in on them and make sure they were settling into Primary 1. We then learned how to create a Sway, and were given the challenge of creating Sways all about us. Once we did that we then learned how to turn the Sway into a QR Code. Mrs T then printed them off and we glued them to our letters. Finally we decorated the envelopes and delivered them to their teachers. We really enjoyed this activity as there was so much learning.

Across the Curriculum- we have started a topic about John Muir and we watched a couple of videos and then search up all about him. I find him really interesting and we are very excited to find more about him. Science this week was about man made rocks and natural rocks.

PE Information P7

Our PE days will be Wednesday and Friday.

As  PE is outdoors at the moment all children are asked to wear their outdoor kits to school on these days.

Outdoor PE kits should consist of joggers/tracksuit bottoms/leggings and school polo/white top. Please also send children with a jumper/jacket that they can wear outside if necessary. Children should wear outdoor shoes ( trainers) suitable for PE on these days.

Due to current circumstances children are unable to use school water fountains, so we ask that they bring extra water with them on these days.

Many Thanks

Mrs T 🙂
