Home Learning this week:
Spelling – There’s a new spelling list this week plus of and off
Pupil Talk – Many children have shown great enthusiasm for this task already so we really look forward to hearing and watching the finished presentations in the final week.
All children have access to computers throughout the week to continue their research. At home, start practising presentations.
Reading – Last week, all pupils had a chance to select an extra library book so everyone now has something to read in class.
PE – Tuesday – I’ve noticed there’s an increasing number of children who do not bring a full or even partial PE kit with them. I’m going to discuss with P6 the importance of having a fresh change of clothes for PE, especially as they are maturing!
Sportshall Athletics on Tuesday – Those pupils chosen to go must return their permission slip dated Tuesday 29th January. Thanks.
Ski-ing – Wednesday. Children should bring their ski-ing gear with them to change into at school before we leave on the bus (after break). Please note that children should bring a packed lunch as we return to school after the dining room has closed.
Bridges trip – Thursday – Part of the trip includes a walk across the old Forth Road Bridge. Children really should wear warm, protective clothes, including hats, scarves, and gloves. Looking ahead at the weather forecast, it is going to be extremely cold; factor in the openness and elevation, it may feel very bitter and exposed! All children need to bring a snack and a packed lunch. Cost is £3. Permission slips must be returned ASAP.
Peer Mediation – P6 have now been trained in Peer Mediation and have been invited to volunteer to take turns to mediate in the playground. Peer Mediators act as listeners to opposing parties in disputes and can help to find solutions to minor disagreements. They are not ‘playground police’ or replacing adult supervision/intervention.
Parents Meetings – your child should have given you an appointment time to see me next week ( Wed 6th or Thurs 7th February). If you have not seen this slip, ask your child to check their bags please. If someone was off on the day these slips went out and didn’t get theirs, can you let me know.
