PE – Tuesday and Thursday – please come to school dressed for PE outdoors. Remember to bring a water bottle for hydration.
🏑HOCKEY – TUESDAY – Our first sports trip! Some children have been selected to take part in a hockey tournament at Lasswade HS – please ensure all permission slips are handed in on Monday.
Indoor shoes – Children can now bring indoor shoes to change into. ***Indoor shoes should be suitable for PE***
Reading – ‘Reading Challenge’ – to encourage pupils to read for pleasure more, I will issue the First Minister’s Reading Challenge this week. Children receive a ‘passport’ where they record what they have read and can share this with the class, if they so wish. Children can borrow a book from our school library.
Debates – We are embarking on 3 rounds of debates over 3 weeks. We have randomly selected 6 teams. Round One debates went very well last week. Round Two starts this week with new teams. Details are on the Debates jamboard in Google Classroom.
P7 Song – Progress has been great so far – P7 have now written the chorus for the class song and Mr Forbes has created a melody for it. It’s very catchy! This week, groups will work on verses. Mr Forbes has posted the guitar chords needed for the chorus so interested pupils can start practising!
Friday 11th – Dress Down Day – in aid of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Children can wear blue and/or yellow to show support for Ukraine and make a monetary donation IF THEY SO WISH. This is entirely optional.
Spelling – Please hand in completed work on Friday. Please ensure all writing is neat.
Maths/Numeracy – A task will be set in Google Classroom on Monday 7th. We have been doing general revision recently but will be focusing on measure for the next week or two.
That’s all for now,
