We hope that you enjoyed the Christmas holidays and have had a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
We are starting the new term with Scottish week. We will be learning about Scottish traditions and the Scots language.
Reading and phonics: We will not be sending home reading books or the red phonics book this week.
As part of our Scottish week we are asking the children to learn 2 Scottish songs which the school will be singing in assembly on Friday:
Auld Lang Syne
The flower of Scotland
We have sent home copies of the song lyrics and ask that you help your child to learn the songs for Friday.
We have also sent home 3 Scots poems –
Ma half sookit sweetie
The Wee Rid Motor
Please can you help your child learn 1 of these poems to recite in front of the class on Friday.
On Friday the lower atrium (P1-P4) will be having a Scottish themed party. If your child has any tartan clothing they may wear it on Friday. If they do not, the school has tartan which can be worn over the school uniform.
