Last Week of Term!

I can’t believe I’m writing this but the last week of term is almost here! It’s been such an amazing year with this amazing group of young individuals!!

We might sneak in a movie on Tuesday and the pupils can bring in PG rated movies to help us decide what to watch and on Wednesday they are welcome to bring in board games.

A reminder that our last day on Thursday is a half day- 12pm finish. Have a great weekend everyone!

P5/6 trip to The Cover (Monday 13th) Remember your wellies and gardening gloves!

P5 & P5/6 pupils please remember your wellies, a small snack, waterproof jacket, long sleeved top and long trousers for Monday’s trip to ‘The Cover’. We will be carrying out our conservation work by clearing the lupins so gardening gloves would be useful too! We will be leaving at 9:30am.

Next week we also have the Fairtrade lunch on Wednesday 15th which parents and carers are invited along to (please bring an item of fairtrade with you if you can) and lastly a reminder that Sports Day is on the Friday 17th. It’s a busy week!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Next week excursions

Thanks again to everyone that made it to the Open Afternoon on Tuesday, it was a delight to welcome so many faces into Primary 5/6 and the school as a whole! We have been busy this week practicing our javelin throwing in PE and using fraction walls to support us to explore fractions.

Next week is action packed with two excursions!! Tuesday 17th marks the first of four trips to the ‘Cover’ as part of our Woodland topic- please remember to return permission slips and bring long sleeved clothing as well as a rain jacket. On Wednesday 18th, the P6s will be going on an excursion to Glen Affric where they will get an insight into land management- can permission slips for this be returned on Monday and pupils should bring a packed lunch, sun cream and appropriate clothing for the outdoors.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Open Afternoon

Although a short week this week it has still been action packed! A well done to the Primary 6’s who took part in a science experience at the Newton Room- sounds like they had a lot of fun and represented themselves, and the school, in a positive light. Miss Mullin was full of praise!

We have been racing through our Scottish Wars of Independence topic and hopefully the pupils can begin to make/say/write or do something as a demonstration of their learning as for the Key Assessment Task which will be shared with parents and carers in due course.

A reminder that on Tuesday (10th) the school is holding an open afternoon. Parents and carers are invited to tour the school and visit classes between 2-3pm. I look forward welcoming you into P5/6! We’ll have some maths game set out for you and your child to engage with along with their most recent Key Assessment Task to have a look at (a persuasive letter about how climate change is affecting fairtrade farmers).

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
