Lost Property

A huge THANK YOU to Mrs Williamson and Mrs Main who spent time this morning streamlining our Lost Property.

As you can see below they have allocated a box per class for named items so that they can be returned to their owner or their owner can check their class box.

This however will only work if ALL items are named.

We still have a  box of unnamed items and lunchboxes/water bottles.

Unclaimed items will be removed as per the Holm Primary and Parent Council Procedural Guide for Lost Property, a copy of which is displayed next to our Lost Property area.

P1 and P2 enjoy a Burns Supper

The Primary 1’s and Primary 2’s had a fantastic day experiencing what it is like to attend a Burns Supper. The children enjoyed designing their own tartan. They then took on the challenge of tasting haggis, oatcakes and cheese, followed by some energetic Scottish dancing.

The children commented on the day:

“I liked the dancing games.”

“I enjoyed the tartan.”

“It was the first time I have tried haggis and I liked it.”

“I enjoyed designing the tartan.”

“It was a fun day.”

Here are some photos of the celebrations.

Thank you,

Mrs Mackenzie, Miss McHardy amd Mrs McAra

Term 1 – Kindness Buckets Full

This term Primary 2 have been learning about kindness. The class have been taking part in a number of activities in which they have shown fantastic caring and kindness skills to each other and within the school community. Our class kindness tree has been full of lots of kindness deeds shown within the school.

The children having enjoyed listening to lots of stories to express their thoughts on kindness and what it means to them.

We are now looking to continue this kindness behaviour into Term 2 by demonstrating acts of kindness in their daily lives.
