Hi all,

🏠House Captain Speeches – Good luck to all the candidates who will deliver their House Captain speech on Monday!

🏠Homework :

🧮 Maths – A maths task will be sent home on Wednesday. This will focus on worded maths problems. Due the following Wed please. 

🧮Reading – Can every child please have personal reading text in school for such times when children may read quietly.

🏌️‍♂️ Tommy Morris – We had  a fantastic workshop last Monday to learn about a former Scottish golfing champion, Tommy Morris. The day was packed with group work and challenges and this fitted in perfectly with current class discussion about the vital life skills of perseverance, resilience and having a growth mindset.

🏊‍♂️ 🥉What better way to end the week than meeting a real life Paralympian – elite swimmer and bronze medal winning Scott Quin came in and met the children, showing off his amazing medal and talking about his experience in Tokyo. What an honour!

💷 Enterprise – As part of ongoing financial education, P7 were given an enterprise task last week- each child was given £20 in plastic  money, a budgeting account sheet and time to make a business plan.

We opened the market place outdoors so that trading could begin in earnest. Lots of items sold out and it was great fun. To finish the topic, we reviewed the whole experience and thought about improvements to make next time.

⛱️Holiday reminder – The children are off school the following  Monday ( 2oth)  for the September break.

That’s all for now,

Thank you,

Miss Brunt
