Please find the link below to a letter Mrs Matheson released yesterday about social media and the way is is being used by some pupils.
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.
What: An event to share practical games to support maths at home.
When: Wednesday 16th January. 6-730pm

For who: Everyone
If you can make it: Please return the slip to let us know how many people are coming. If you do not have a slip, simply put a note into school stating how many people are attending.

My heart couldn’t feel more full!! Absolutely bursting with happiness and just being so proud!!! What an achievement to the girls!! Thank you so much to everyone that helped us on our journey. Mrs Williams, Mrs Webb and Mr Ross – legends.
Eden Court were amazing and special thank you to the Dance Artist Louise Marshall!!
All the girls were superstars!!!! Thank you to them and their families. I have been so touched by the words of thanks but the girls are the true achievers. It’s moments like this that I love my job and all the children I work with. I hope the girls will remember this day for what it was – truly awesome!!! More importantly they continue to believe they can achieve whatever they want to and KEEP DANCING !!
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.
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.
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.
