Friday Update

Happy Friday everyone,

We finish another lovely and busy week at Central. Thankfully the weather was warmer by today 😊

Easter Extravaganza
After having to postpone their enterprise from last week, P7 hosted a number of stalls today for the children as part of their P7 trip fund raising endeavours. Well done everyone, it was great to see all involved having a good time. There were a few superb entries for the Easter bonnet, prizes will go out next week.

Staffing
We welcome Mrs Leakey and Mrs Nesbitt to our team this term on a part-time basis. They will both be working alongside our teachers with all children in small groups on maths and literacy.
Mr Mackenzie our music tutor returned this week. His work this term will include development of podcasts.
Mr Stirratt has started working with groups of children in the afternoons to develop team building skills and resilience.
Representatives from Active Play started working with pupils to develop outdoor play. They will continue with this throughout the term.

Transition
Buddies with nursery started this week. P6 met their buddies and they had a great first session playing together. Next week the children will organise tours of the main teaching building.
P7 have been given letters regarding their transition days to secondary school. They are all looking forward to this.

Central Two Centuries
The Engagement Team from Eden Court will resume working with the children next week as we begin to work towards a final production in June.
The children are working steadily to produce our living archive which will be shared with all towards to end of term.

Sports Day
We are planning to hold a sports day this year in June at the Northern Meeting Park. The date and time will be confirmed as soon as possible.

The Pines
A behaviour support Q and A session is being held on 12th May, details are attached.

Wishing you a lovely, restful long weekend.
We look forward to seeing everyone again on Tuesday 3rd May.

Friday Update

We have enjoyed a particularly lovely end of term as part of our project Central Two Centuries.  There was a fantastic show of Victorian attire today and it was great to see the whole school enjoying games outdoors, handwritten poems and a jeely piece for play-time.

At the beginning of the day Mr Woolley and Mrs Steele McGinn replicated the opening of our current old building.  P6 read an article to everyone as we had our first outdoor assembly.  It was a little chilly so we returned indoors as quickly as we could.

We are especially thankful to Mrs Steele McGinn for delivering a bespoke Learn with Lorna in every class on the topic of Victorian Life.  I have attached a link below for you to find out more as a family.

There was a good degree of participants this week in our replication of Spelling Bee.  Well done to everyone who took part and to those children who won in each class.  The children who chose not to take part were equally important and all did a splendid job of remaining quiet as the audience, to allow the contestants to concentrate, fabulous work everyone!

Drumfun on Tuesday was super with everyone enjoying the influence of African culture.

The team hope you all enjoy a lovely break and look forward to seeing everyone again on Tuesday 19th April.

Happy Easter!

Mrs Fraser
