🚶♀️***WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK***🚶♀️
This week, pupils are encouraged to get to school using leg power where possible!
👞Shoesday Tuesday – To promote Walk to School Week, wear your favourite shoes ( appropriate for school!) on Tuesday. To round off the week, we will go for a local walk with our buddies on Friday.
➡️ Transition Information – Pupils going to Lasswade High will now have a transition task to do each Tuesday and this can be found in their S1 Google Classroom. I am also asking children to check this daily for updates.
Beeslack – We have been notified there will be a transition evening on May 25th – we will update you when we get more details about this event.
Pupils going to Beeslack for Transition Days ( June 15 -17th) need to be dropped there by parents. Details to follow nearer the time. Lasswade pupils will have a bus provided for them on these three days ( same dates as Beeslack)
🚴Bikeability Group 2 – training continues on Monday 16th May – children know who is in this group and need to bring their bike to school.
PE – Tuesday and Thursday – please come to school dressed for PE outdoors. Remember to bring a water bottle for hydration.
Homework : Spelling
💻Chromebooks – These devices do need to be taken home and charged up for the following school day. In P7, we use Chromebooks daily. Children now have earphones for various uses in class eg. watching tutorials or using the audio function in writing and on very rare occasions (perhaps during Art & Design where it is beneficial to have a relaxed atmosphere) are allowed to listen to music; please note this is not allowed at any other time during the school day.
📝Poetry Competition – The annual poetry competition is upon us. P7 have been putting their knowledge of figurative language to good use to create poems. One poem will be selected to be put forward in to the school wide competition.
French Friday – There will be a French theme on Friday 20th May. Wear red, white and blue clothes to school if you wish.
📅Calendar of events – The latest school newsletter should have been received. This has important dates for your diary. P7 also created a calendar in Google Drawings on Friday and added these dates in. There are only seven weeks left yet still so much to fit in.
❗❗Please keep Tuesday 28th June ( afternoon) free for the P7 Leavers Show! Time to be confirmed soon – please be aware of the hugely busy term we have in school with lots of classes to arrange and timetable for.
❗❗❗Also, please note the new time for school to close on the very final day – on Thursday 30th June, school will now close at 12:25pm and not 3:15pm as originally proposed.
That’s all for now,
