A quick reminder that P2 and P3 will be having their Christmas parties this week.
P3 – Wednesday 19th after lunch (1:30pm)
P2 – Thursday 20th in the morning (9:15am)
You might want to send you child dressed in their party clothes, particularly if they have their party first thing in the morning (P2). For those having their parties in the afternoon (P3) you can either get changed into party clothes or come dressed for the day.
We look forward to having a dance and playing some party games!
Your child has been working very hard this week on retelling a well known fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk, for their Key Assessment Task. They acted it out and used adjectives to describe their part of the story. They then went on to write about the story and draw pictures. What a fantastic job they did!
These have been sent home today for you to have a look at with your child. Please read the comments and add your own comment in the ‘Parent Voice’ section. Once you have done this, please return them to school in your child’s book bag.
A wee reminder that tomorrow is the dress rehearsal for our First Level show. You should all now have your tickets for the upcoming shows, if you have any questions let us know.
Thank you to those of you that have brought in costumes to school. If you haven’t already, please bring in costumes by tomorrow for our dress rehearsal in the afternoon (Friday 7th December).
Those with speaking/dancing parts will have received a letter about costumes required. For singers, non-speaking parts and non-dancing parts, plain school trousers or leggings and a colourful (preferably plain top) are to be worn. Some children have brought in sunglasses which is fine too.
A reminder of show dates and times:
Dress rehearsal Friday 7th December
Afternoon Show – Tuesday 11th October

Homework for the upcoming week will be to practise singing all songs, words and dance moves for Lights, Camel, Action! We will be doing lots of practise next week in school and want everyone to know all of their words, songs and dances by Tuesday 4th of December.
Could you all remember to return your ticket slips if requiring tickets along with £1 per ticket. We have sent home letters for those with parts in the show detailing what to wear for the show.
Can ALL costumes/clothing be brought in by next Thursday in time for our rehearsal on Friday 7th December. These should be labelled with your child’s name so they are not lost or mixed up. If you have any issues or questions, feel free to contact me.

Thank you to everyone who made it along to the ‘Books and Buns’ event on Friday. We hope you enjoyed seeing the library and sharing the book bags with your child. The books and games they were given were fantastic and lots of fun.
A huge thank you to Miss Schimield for the massive amount of work she has put into getting the library to where it is now. It was an enormous task for her to transform the room from the previous P1 classroom to The Treehouse and Library. Thank you also for organising all the lovely refreshments. We really enjoyed it!
We have been enjoying reading our books from home to celebrate Book Week Scotland. We were talking about the differences between fiction and non-fiction texts and looking at contents pages in non-fiction texts to find information.
We hope to see you tomorrow afternoon for the opening of our library and to explore the free Book Bag your child will receive that is supplied by the Scottish Government.
Have a look at some of the photos from our dolphin visit last week and our ‘ready’ rule presentation in assembly last Friday.
To celebrate Book Week Scotland and the re-launch f the MOL library, we will be hosting several events next week. These will be centred around sharing stories and spreading the excitement for reading! P1-P3 will also be given “book bags”, donated by the Scottish Government in partnership with the Scottish Book Trust, to encourage children to read at home.
P2/3 would like to invite parents and carers to join us in school on Friday 23rd of November for a ‘Books and Buns’ event. This will give your child the chance to explore their new book bag with you. Cakes and refreshments will be provided along at the library. This also gives you a chance to explore our fantastic library.
We would like to invite you to join us from 2pm until 2:45pm. We hope to see you then!
A note is being sent home today with your child with more details. If you have any questions, let me know.
As a whole school, we made the most of National Outdoor Classroom Day to do most of our learning. We were very lucky to have the opportunity to toast marshmallows over the fire pits and have a class story in the teepee. We learned about fire safety and how to be safe when toasting marshmallows over a flame.
A huge thank you to Miss Hutcheson and Miss Campbell for all of their organisation. They did lots of work to put the teepee up and set the fire.
A note from the Head Teacher:
Unfortunately, I am required to make a plea again to all users of the car park to exercise caution and care when deciding where to park.
I have been aware that on an increasing number of occasions, users are parking either ON or BEYOND the zebra crossing near to the MUGA steps which has resulted in a couple of near misses with children having to avoid cars either driving in or reversing out of this area.
Whilst I appreciate that parking spaces are limited, I must stress that this area of the car park is absolutely NOT for parking within. The zebra crossing has been installed to ensure that children can cross safely without any fear of cars being around them and this must be the case at all times.
This area has now been coned off and we will be discussing this matter with both police and the council’s Safer Routes Team, as well as at the next Parent Council Meeting.
As you will appreciate, the safety of the children is the absolute priority at all times and this cannot be compromised.
Thanks in advance for your support in this matter.
