National Literacy Project

Our Primary 2 ,3 and 4 pupils are participating in a National Literacy Trust Project where fostering an enjoyment of reading is the core aim.

The pupils will take part in 3 different literacy events to promote this. This week the children have been involved in activities focussing on ‘The 3 Little Pigs’.  Primary 1 pupils joined in with the learning experiences also.

The classes were split into 5 groups and went to a different activity each afternoon. The event ended on Thursday when the pupils had the story read to them in another language, German or Portuguese.

The activities the children took part in were:

  • building straw, brick and wood houses.
  • illustrations
  • making characters puppets
  • sequencing activity
  • role Play of the story

At events 1 and 2 the pupils will choose a book, take it home to share and return this to school. The pupils have received book home for the Easter holidays. Please check bags for the books and enjoy them over Easter 🙂

After Easter these books will be kept in class for the children to enjoy during school time.

At the 3rd event the pupils will choose a book to keep.  The final event will take place at the Retail Park on Thursday 9th May; the businesses will host different literacy events such as a story teller and ‘snack and story time’.

The National Literacy Trust are providing the funds for the books and will cover the cost of transport for the Retail Park.

We encourage pupils to read a variety of books at home and in school to help them develop a love for reading and further enhance literacy skills.

Thank you.

P7 Residential Trip

What a super week we had at Loch Eil.

All pupils had a blast. We were incredibly proud of how well they represented themselves and Central School. All pupils faced new challenges and showed great determination throughout the activities.

It was lovely to see the pupils mixing with children who they will be joining in 1st year.

Here are some photos of the trip. We have lots more pictures to add and will upload throughout this week.
