Welcome back everyone and welcome to our new blog!
I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing holiday. The children have certainly come back to school more than ready for the new school year. The teachers and PSAs are also looking very eager and refreshed.
The children have all settled into their new classes well, Ms Starr is delighted with her new P1s.
Swimming lessons for the whole school have commenced and we will have Drama on a Friday too. This makes Friday a busy day so we will therefore hold our weekly assemblies on a Thursday afternoon this term. PE with Mrs Masson for P3/4 and for P5/6/7 will be on a Thursday morning.
The classes will now be getting started on their latest projects; P1/2 will be learning about Thomas Telford and the Caledonian Canal, P3/4 will learn about the Titanic and P5/6/7 are studying WW2.
My day in the office is now a Wednesday, so if you need to see me about anything, please try to make an appointment or get in touch then.
Also, I would like to take this opportunity to ask that parents don’t take their cars into the school car park, it can get congested there and, for safety purposes, we need to keep traffic to a minimum. Also, please make sure that the junction at the entrance to school, by the bank, doesn’t get blocked.
