Friday Update

Hello everyone,

We have had a lovely first week back despite the downpour on Tuesday! Please be aware, if the weather is very inclement, the children will have their breaks indoors.

As the days are becoming colder can we please ask parents to ensure the children wear warmer clothes to school? We have quite a number of older uniforms if anybody needs spare.

We have a busy term ahead and are looking forward to sharing the annual learning opportunities that arise during the next couple of months.

Face Coverings/Masks

Can I remind all parents when they come in to the school grounds they should be wearing a face covering or mask unless they are exempt?

We appreciate your help with this so that everyone feels comfortable and safe.

Poppies

From Monday 1st of November we will be selling poppies. All donations are greatly appreciated.

This year we will be trying to find out more about our former pupils who served during the wars. If you have any stories or memories you can share, specifically related to the war please let us know.

COP26 Event at the Cathedral

P6 and P7 are delighted to have been invited to attend and participate in an event at the Cathedral on Monday.

In preparation, we were sent some books which have been shared with the children in class today.

School Home Partnership Learning

As the topic of climate change is very current at the moment, we would encourage families to discuss climate change issues.

There are many online resources that families may wish to research.

Climate conversations will be held across the school next week.

Homework bags

We have updated our reading framework resources and are now moving over to our new reading framework PM Readers.

We ask that the children bring in their burgundy homework bag so that the reading books, which were very expensive, can be protected as they go home.

We are still in the lengthy process of covering the books. This will take time as it is such a big task.

If your child hasn’t been issued a homework bag please make their teacher aware. Thank you for your cooperation.

Swimming

Primary 5/6 will take part in swimming on Mondays beginning from the 8th of November. The class teacher will post further details.

Out of School Club

For the next few weeks we are sharing some Out of School Club provision with St Joseph’s. Our current families are all aware of the arrangements.

Parent Council Meeting

Just a reminder of our Parent Council dates.

Thursday 25th November

Thursday 27th January

Thursday 31st March.

Northern Meeting Park Consultation

A consultation is being held on possible uses of, and the future management of the Northern Meeting Park.
