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.

Term 2 Highlights


We started this term learning all about World War One!! We found out many facts by reading poems, watching video clips and looking at the Poppy Scotland website.  We were very excited to take responsibility for selling and sharing our knowledge about poppies throughout the school.

We have created 100 poppies to remind us that World War ended a 100 years ago.  We hope to show you this in our sharing later on this term.

Literacy – Poetry Sharing 

Number Crunching 

We continue to learn the basic facts through dice addition and using numicom.  Please continue to help us at home.


Well done for ALL your achievements both out and in our school.  We love hearing about them.  Keep them coming into school to share with us all.

Children in Need 

We love being kind to others, helping those who are less fortune and we continue to spread our words of kindess.  We made special friendship bands that contained an awesome message.  What kind words would you say about yourself?
