Happy New Year to you all!! I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday, it sounds like the children have had so much fun over the Christmas period.
We are just easing ourselves back in this week by recapping phonics and numeracy before starting new sounds and topics next week. Therefore, there is no homework this week and it will resume next Tuesday.
This week is Scottish Week, so we have lots of fun things planned – today we read Katie Morag and spoke about the differences between the Isle of Struay (where she lives) and Loanhead.
Wednesday – We are looking at different places we can go and visit in Scotland.
Thursday – Edinburgh Castle
Friday – Scottish songs
For the assembly on Friday, the children will be learning two songs this week; Auld Lang Syne and Flower of Scotland. We will be practising them during class time but do feel free to sing them at home too!
On Friday the lower atrium (P1-4) will be having a Scottish themed party. If your child has any tartan clothing then they can wear this on Friday. If not, then school uniform should be worn as normal.
Have a fabulous week and I’m looking forward to working with you all again this term,
Miss Lauren Waller
