There are just five weeks left of this term and it’s shaping up to be very busy indeed. Here are some reminders of dates for your diary. **Please note, I made an error with the date of the P3-7 Christmas Concert so have changed it from Wed 19th to Tuesday 18th December. My apologies!**
W/B 19th November – Book Week Scotland – children should bring reading material to read in class when the ‘reading bell’ rings.
Thursday 22nd Nov. – Dress as a book character
Friday 30th November – Christmas Fair* @12:30pm
Wednesday 5th December – Pantomime at Brunton Theatre (late return)
Wednesday 12th December – Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas School Lunch
Tuesday 18th December – P3-7 Christmas Concert (afternoon)
Thursday 20th December – Christmas Party
Friday 21st December – Last day of term – Assembly at LP Church.
*Details of events will appear nearer the time but with regard to the Christmas Fair, the Upper Atrium will be compiling a Fair Trade Hamper to raffle at the event so if you can donate any FT items to the hamper, that would be super.
This week –
Spelling – as normal; homework to be completed for next Monday.
Reading – Children are working very well with their reading journal. Everyone is now working on Task 3 but I’ve given two weeks for completion (by 29/11/18). The children got some personalisation and choice here and were asked to choose three question types to work on with their book. I will explain this again on Monday and make sure everyone is clear about what they are doing.
PE – Can children have their kit in all week please as our normal Thursday slot is taken with other things this week but I’ll find a slot in the timetable elsewhere to fit in PE. Tuesday PE remains unchanged. We have finished our netball sessions and will move onto basketball. Speaking of basketball…
Congratulations to our P6/7 basketball team who won all their matches at last week’s tournament! LR, WL, LM, ZM and LCh; we are very proud of you all!
Thanks for your support,
Miss S Brunt
