A warm welcome back to all our pupils, parents and staff and a very big welcome to all our new Primary 1 pupils and parents. We have had a very positive start to the new school term with the children and staff all looking refreshed and ready to learn!
Please remember that our school website aims to keep you informed about all of our school news and evens and as well as homework, our monthly newsletters are published here. This year, we begin by piloting a page for every class which we hope will be easier to locate specific news and events.
A big thanks to the Parent Council who raised over £1 500.00 at our summer fair last week. This was a super achievement and was down to all their hard work.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the parent council for their organising of events and support to the school throughout the year, we really appreciate all you do for our children.
If you are interested in coming along to join the parent council or help at events please contact the school office for details of our chairperson. Or, alternatively, come along to one of the meetings which are held in school throughout the year, everyone is welcome!
Here is a video that should help with the correct pronunciation of the sounds when learning to read. It explains why it is important to say the sounds correctly and explains how each sound should be pronounced.
This term we will soon be focusing on the 9x table, if you could practise this new table as well as the 4x table that would be much appreciated. Remember that the children should know the answers as fast as the learn-its.
If there are any children who need their learn-its updated please let me know. Some of the children have now begun to do subtraction and multiplication learn-its in class. If your child feels they are ready for this, please let me know.
Sum Dog– I am not setting a specific challenge this week, but if you can, please play!
