P6 Week Beginning 15.11.21

Hi all, 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our PoppyScotland collection, the P7’s led a beautiful and very respectful assembly on Thursday. 

We have P.E. on Monday and Wednesday. 

There will be no Mandarin on Wednesday. 

Homework will be handed out on Monday and should be handed in on Friday. This week, there will be spelling, reading and reading activities. This week, the reading task will be either based on your child’s book or a reading skill. 


  • Primary 6 have organised Children in Need this year. There will be a dress down day on Friday (19th) for a suggested donation of £1. Throughout the week, at break times, the children have a chance to ‘Guess how many sweets are in the tub?’ for 50p a guess. The closest guess wins the sweets on Friday! 
  • We will also be leading the assembly on Friday which is very exciting. 
  • Children are now able to get hot meals from the dining hall, if they wish. Please pay for this in advance through parent pay and your child will have this lunch in the dining hall. However, if they wish to still bring in a packed lunch, they can and they will eat this in the classroom. 
  • Christmas Tea Towel orders have to be brought into school by Wednesday 17th November. 
  • Last week, P6 were given ski letters as we have the fantastic chance to go for skiing lessons in January!! Please return these by FRIDAY 19th November.
  • Today, children took home letters about food allergies/intolerances. These letters MUST be filled out and brought to school ASAP. 

Thank you all for your support. 

Miss Lauren Waller 


P5 Week Beginning 15/11/21

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week:

Thank you to everyone that contributed to our Poppy Appeal. The P7s produced a beautiful assembly to remember those we have lost.

School Lunches / Parent Pay: From Monday children can buy a school lunch instead of bringing their own packed lunch. If they choose to do this they will probably be eating in the lunch hall. If your child chooses to have a school lunch and has a food allergy or intolerance please send in a signed note stating what they are to order for lunch. This is to comply with new legislation.

Reading – please see reading book for homework.

Spelling – please see spelling jotter for the pattern or sound they are learning.

P.E. is as usual on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.

On Wednesday Miss Sun is not in so we will have no mandarin.

The children seemed to have enjoyed learning about COP26 and the importance of Climate Change.

I hope to complete all the parent/child ‘trio’ consultations this week, I will then send home the completed forms.

P6 are organising ‘Children in Need’ this week. On Friday we have ‘Dress Down’ day….please bring a £1. Can you ensure that children are not wearing football strips, onesies or pyjamas.

From Monday, as part of Children in Need, P6 are having a ‘Guess the Sweets in the Tub’ this will cost 50p and the children can take part at break or lunch time throughout the week.

Many thanks,

Lisa Cumming


P3 Homework – 15.11.21

Hi everyone,

After last week we have now completed all of our learning trios for this term. Thank you to all parents who attended or spoke to me on the phone. It was fantastic to have your input and so lovely to see you all again. I have also had some of the children mention how glad they were they got to come with their parent/carer and how proud they were of themselves. It’s clear to see your involvement in their learning means a lot to them.


We are hoping to explore and round off our Ancient Egypt topic by doing some artwork and model building. If you have any junk at home (particularly cardboard) we would very much appreciate if you could hand it in to school.


  • All orders for tea towels being made by parent council must be in by Wednesday 17th of November.
  • This Friday p6 have arranged a dress down for Children in Need. Donations of £1 are appreciated. They have specified no pjs, football strips or onesies please.
  • P6 are also arranging a ‘Guess how many sweeties are in the tub?” fundraiser. This will be 50p per guess and will be available to take part in from Monday through to Friday at break time.




Spelling words have been glued into the children’s jotters. Please remember to practise the words AND write the sentences unless this has been discussed with me previously.


I have stuck a numeracy/maths grid the the back of your child’s homework jotter. The expectation is that only one brick (activity)  be completed per week. Can you colour the brick after your child has completed the activity AND is confident in doing so independently.

A Sumdog challenge on multplication has also been set and will be available until next Friday.  The class have also been entered into the current Sumdog contest. Get earning coins!

P7 Info W/B Monday 15th November 2021

Hi all,

🎽 PE  – Monday and Wednesday – please come to school dressed for PE outdoors. Remember to bring a water bottle for hydration. 

🚴‍♀️ BikeabilityGroup 2 have their second session on Monday 15th November.

🥪Lunches / Parent Pay –  P7 can now select a pre-paid lunch from the school lunch hall. The menu should be posted on the school website very soon. Children are still welcome to bring in a packed lunch from home to be eaten in the classroom. 

💓Remembrance Assembly – Last Thursday, P7 led the Remembrance proceedings via Zoom. Every single pupil played an important part in this assembly and I have to say, it was very moving and  poignant. I am very proud of them all.  Thank you P7 and thanks to the parents who allowed their family member’s stories to be told.

📚Reading – We will be starting to read a class novel called ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ this week.  WW2  is our new topic. Can every child still have a personal reading text in school for such times when children may read quietly.

🏠Homework :

📝Spelling –  Please hand in completed work on Friday. Please ensure all writing is neat.

🧮 Maths/Numeracy – In maths this week, we are still  revising time⏰ – telling the time, using 24 hr clock and working out time durations. In Numeracy, we are revising decimals – place value, rounding, ordering,  + – X ÷ and worded problems.

A homework sheet about decimals will be sent home on Monday (due the following Monday). This is the sheet that was meant to go home last week but unfortunately I had printer problems! I will also post a new  Sumdog challenge starting 15.11.21 for one week.

💬 Modern Languages – There will be no Mandarin with Miss Sun  this week but children will start French lessons with Mrs Lynch on Tuesday afternoon.

My new email address :



That’s all for now,

Thank you,

Miss Brunt

P3 – Learning Trio Targets

Hi all,

I just wanted to write a quick message to keep you up to date and apologise that the learning trio conversations haven’t made it out this week. Unfortunately, I have been dealing with some health issues this week therefore have not been able to update our targets post learning trio. They will all go home next week. For this same reason homework did not make it on the website this week. Thank you to all parents who have kept to our routine anyways, it has really helped with our learning in class.

I am sorry for any inconvenience or confusion this has caused.

🌟SCHOOL TEA TOWELS – Parent Council Fundraiser 🌟

This information will be sent home in paper form on Wednesday 12th of November.  We appreciate the tight timing but for Christmas orders this is the deadline.

Payment and order forms should be returned to teachers or office by Wednesday 17th November, in a sealed and labelled envelope.

You can always print the form below and hand into the office with payment and in a sealed envelope.



Dear Parents/Guardians,

As part of the Parent Council’s fundraising this term, the children are designing brilliant tea towels showing a collage of self-portraits. It will make a great present for family and friends or for you to hold on to as a keepsake!  Due to numbers, there will be a choice to order an upper atrium towel (P5-7 children) or a lower atrium one (P1-4).

The product is 45% cotton and 55% linen and is high quality. The cost of each tea towel is £5. As the towels will be printed to order, please complete the order form below and hand it in to the office with your payment in cash (exact change), and in a clearly labelled, sealed envelope, by Wednesday 17th of November to ensure that we beat the Christmas rush!

Thanks very much and we hope you like them!
