It has been lovely welcoming the children back to school this week. We hope that you all had a lovely summer holiday and are well rested and ready for a new year.
We are spending the first few weeks working on the children’s health and wellbeing as they settle back into school routines. We have created a new class charter for each class looking at how we can make sure that our right to play, safety and learning are met in school.
We have also been reading the book ‘In my heart’. This story focuses on 10 of the most common emotions we experience. This week we have looked at happiness, anger, bravery and calmness. For each emotion the children have described a situation where they have felt that way. They are creating their very own books illustrating these experiences and are looking forward to sharing them with you once they are finished.
Structured maths and literacy teaching will begin in a couple of weeks and homework will be start at this time. Until then we will revise some key concepts from Primary 1 learning, helping the children to get back into the routine of learning.
P.E. will be on a Wednesday and Thursday this year. Please send your child to school in a PE kit on these days. A reminder that PE kit consists of a white T-shirt, navy or black shorts/ trousers and a school jumper.
Please also ensure that your child has inside gym rubbers to keep in school and comes to school each day with a water bottle.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
