Primary 2 – 12.6.23 – News and Info

Hello P2 families 🌞

I cannot believe that we have only just over 2 weeks to go!  This is just a little note to say that tomorrow (13.6.23) we are having a trip to The Link park and mud garden with our buddies.  Please can your child have a change of clothes and shoes (in case they get muddy) snack, water sun cream  etc.

I have stopped homework from this week while we do a stock take of books, please continue reading for enjoyment (15 Mins per day) with your child and TopMarks (Hit the b utton or other memtal maths games) or Sumdog for numeracy.

We are also working on a surprise for Mrs Caldwell’s leaving assembly (26.6.23) we are singing “so long, farewell” as a class and the first 2 minutes of “Dancing queen” so your child may want to practise at home.  Also, if you know that you will not be in on this day, or if you have holidays planned, please let me know ASAP.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hinton.

P1 Week Beginning 5.6.23

Hi all,

Learning Trio forms will be sent home on Friday 9th June. 

This week is Health Week and we have lots of exciting things planned, please see below! Children can come to school this week in sporty clothes as we will be taking parts in lots of activities. Please note no football tops or crop tops such be worn.

MondaySports Day 1pm – 3:15pm.

Parents are welcome to watch. We have t-shirts for the children to wear but if your child would rather wear their own house coloured t-shirt then this is fine.

Red – Gladhouse, Green – Dryden, Blue – Edgelaw.

Tuesday – Your child can scoot/cycle to school and get breakfast from 8:30am in the dining hall.

We also have a dance class and first aid course. Children can also take part in a bike course if they bring their bike to school.

Wednesday – We have football, P.E and a music class.

Thursday – We have P.E. and a Treasure Hunt.

IMPORTANT – As the weather is getting warmer, I am encouraging children to bring hats and suncream to help us stay protected from the sun. Please ensure your child has a labelled bottle of suncream and I can help them apply this throughout the day if needed.

This week we will be looking at how we look after ourselves and keep ourselves healthy/safe. 


Reading: Please get in touch if you have lost any key words and I can replace them for you. Lots of parents were asking about reading groups at learning trios and I wanted to explain that the children can move groups and they are grouped by their progress in reading. If I had any concerns with your child’s reading, I would have communicated this with you. Your children are still very young and only at the start of their reading journey, please don’t worry about what stage or group your child is in.

Spelling: Your child has to read the sentence and then spell the missing word, as shown by the picture beside the sentence. It is good practise to get your child to copy the sentence underneath. This helps to encourage great handwriting.
