We had a fantastic turn out of parents and carers who joined us for our Welcome Evening.
It was great to gather together to welcome everyone back following the summer break and for you to meet your child’s class teacher.
Mrs Gracie spoke about the National Improvement Priorities and the important role parental engagement plays in supporting your child’s learning. If you were unable to attend our Welcome Evening, Mrs Gracie’s Powerpoint presentations can be downloaded below and viewed at home.
A huge thank you to all of the Primary 6 pupils (plus Madzia and Chloe from P7!), parents, and staff who came along at this busy time of year to help at our stall at Stockbridge Market this afternoon. The Handmade Wreaths and Christmas Crafts were such a hit that we completely sold out and raised £500 for our Lagganlia Fund. Well done everyone – what a fantastic effort!
Primary 6 have been working flat out this week to get ready for our stall at Stockbridge Market this Sunday. The class will be selling handmade Christmas Wreaths, lavender and cinnamon bags and little Christmassy boxes filled with shortbread biscuits – perfect for stocking fillers. All of the money raised will go into the class Lagganlia Fund, to help towards the cost of school camp. Please come along and support the class at Stockbridge market on Sunday – between 10am and 4pm. A huge thank you to Donna for organising the stall for us and to Narcissus Flower School for donating all of the wreath making materials and offering some of the pupils a masterclass. A very special thank you also to Mrs Black and Mrs Tansey, who are now wreath making experts – we couldn’t have done it without your help this week getting everything ready!
Primary 6 started Literature Circles a few weeks ago and are already acting like Literature Circle professionals! They have learned the first 4 Literature Circle Jobs of Summariser, Illustrator, Word Wizard and Question Writer and prepare for their Literature Circle meeting each week by completing the set section of their reading book and preparing their job to present to their group. The class are already coming up with fantastically creative ways to present their jobs and are having some very interesting discussions about their group reading books.
