Children In Need 2018 in P3, P3/4 and P4

Today we enjoyed raising money for BBC Children In Need 2018.

We got to dress down (or up!) and had the opportunity to buy some delicious Pudsey biscuits at break.

Primary 3, 3/4 and 4 enjoyed some different activities in B Block today:

  • Design your own Pudsey.
  • Create your own Children In Need spotty biscuit.
  • Design a Pudsey friendship band with a positive message on the inside.

We also enjoyed learning about the importance of Children In Need and discovering all the different activities and centres the charity supports.  We were actively involved in sharing, giving, creating and expressing individuality while also filling each other with positive affirmations to demonstrate kindness.

Wraparound Spelling Information

I have put an edited version of the PPT presentation from the Wraparound Spelling event on the blog. Please find it within the Support for Learning 18/19 blog.

Please read it through and contact me if you have any questions.

Family Learning event – thank you

I really enjoyed hosting the Literacy Family Learning event last night and working with you all. Thank everyone who could make it.

I will be putting more information up on the website within the ‘Support for Learning 18/19’ section, including:

  • Presentation used last night
  • Activities that can be used anywhere
  • Sound charts to support spelling

There were some families who could not attend, and selected other dates. Unfortunately, there has not been a high turnout for any of the 3 options, so those workshops will not run. I hope that the information that I put on the website will be supportive. If anyone has any questions, please get in touch with me at the school.

The feedback was positive, and I appreciate the comments and insight into your views. As a result, I will look to run further events throughout the year and will put information out in due course.

Thanks again,

Mike Ross

Family learning event

Literacy Family Learning event:
Wednesday 3rd October. 6-730pm. Holm Primary School hall.

Mr Ross is hosting an event to share the new approach to spelling within the school.

The event will share:

  • Information about the new approach
  • the rationale behind it
  • examples of the activities your children are involved in each day
  • ways to support this at home

All families are welcome to attend, but the event is mainly aimed at families with children ranging from P3 to P7.

There will be another event soon aimed at the children in P1 and P2.

Children are welcome at the meeting.

Hope to see you all there.
