Friday Letter – 13th April 2018

Monday 16th April – Swimming, Ulster Scots – P4 – P7 (3pm – 4pm)
Friday 20th April – P7 – Scripture Union – It’s Your Move

Welcome back to our 3rd term. This term always is a very busy wards term with lots of different events happening. Please continue to keep an eye on website/Facebook page and also newsletter for news and updates.

Attendance & Punctuality
We would like to remind you that class teaching begins at 9.10am each day. At this time, it is ideal if all pupils are in class and organised for their day at school. Punctuality has a positive impact on learning and the classroom environment.

Pupil Assessment
Children will be completing Progress in English and Maths during the week beginning Monday 14th May. P4 and P6 will also be completing Cognitive Ability Tests. We require full attendance this week to facilitate the administration of these tests. Thank you.

Sports Day
Sports Day is provisionally booked for Friday 1st June 2018.

It’s Your Move
We are delighted to welcome Adam McCreedy from Scripture Union in to school for the next 3 Friday’s. Adam is doing a workshop with our P7 children to help prepare them for the transition to Secondary school.

Cups & Trophies
Any pupil who won a cup or trophy last year should now return this to school so that we can get organised for prize day. If you are in touch with any Yr8s who won something last year, please mention this to them.

Summer Uniform
As we start our summer term, I am ever hopeful that we will start to see an improvement in our weather. During summer term girls can wear blue or green gingham dresses or navy/grey shorts. Boys may also wear navy/grey shorts. School jumpers must also be worn.

A list of dates for our summer term and a holiday list for next year (2018-2019) have been sent home today.

Reception/P1 – Class Assembly Parents, grandparents and friends of our Reception/Primary 1 children are invited to a special class assembly on Thursday 26th April at 9.30am.
This will be a celebration of the children’s work and we look forward to welcoming you all to school. Please stay for tea/coffee afterwards.
