Dear Parents, 

We are now approaching the end of the school year.   We have now completed our  Fun/Activity Days. Everyone had a great time. Continue to send in a water bottle with your child.  They can keep this in shcool and refill it on site with fresh filtered water each day.  We have added some photos on this page.  The children had a wonderful day. 


All classes have taken prt in pur Energy Fitness Day with Freddy.  Please see some of our photographs on this page. The children had a great day and earned a well deserved certificate for their efforts.   

In Numeracy we are revising all the topics we have covered in Primary 1.   

In Literacy we continue with our Read, Write, Inc., speed sounds.  We 'Fred Talk' green words and use the technique of pinching our thumb and fingers as we sound out the words.  Encourage your child to do this with words that they can Fred Talk at home.  Can they write these words?   Click on the link below to get more ideas and information.  Children have been reading some lovely books on the Oxord Owl website and using their 'Fred Fingers' to sound out the words in these books.  We also now have a shared story book which all children experience as a class activity.   Children enjoyed  'Slug in Love' and 'Meesha makes Frineds'.  Children are now watching the Ruth Miskin School Portal and have experineces of the virtual calssroom.  

In World Around Us we are finishing off our topic of 'Off We Go' .  It is all about holidys and keeping safe in the Summer and in the sun.. 

PE lessons are on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Please ensure that children have appropriate footwear and clothing on these days.  As the weather gets warmer, please ensure your child has a hat and protective clothing.   They may bring their own sun screen and apply it themselves when you feel this is necessary.

School lessons begin at 9.15.   Please remember to email, send a note or phone the school should your child be absent for any reason. 

If there are any planned changes to collection arrangements please inform the class Teacher or contact the school Office. 

Please continue to log on using your 'Myschool' login details and try your Mathletics activities at home.  Use the Mathletics logon card that was sent home with your child in Term 1. If you have lost or misplaced these details please contact your child's Teacher.   Children are also using Education City in school and this can be accessed at home too.  There is a link on this page for these. 

Continue to encourage your child to work hard, set a good example and be a good friend. Teachers reward stars to children every day. 

All homework should be returned to the Class Teacher on a Friday as new work is sent home at the start of the week.
