I hope that you had a restful holiday and are ready for a busy last term in Primary 2. Please find some useful information about your child’s term at school below:
Fundraising thank you
First of all, a huge thank you to everybody who kindly sponsored the children on their sponsored walk around the playground with a watering can last term. We raised £349.52 which is a fantastic achievement and will cover the sponsorship of a boy and girl through a year of school at Kamuli Primary in Uganda. Not only will this money pay for school fees, but it will also cover basic items needed for boarding, such as shoes and soap.
Your child will have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday. This has changed from last term. Please ensure your child has a PE kit, including shorts, t-shirt and indoor shoes.
A morning at school can be tiring, so it is important for the children to keep hydrated and without hungry tummies! Please ensure your child has a healthy snack in their bag for their morning break time. A piece of fruit and a bottle of water is recommended.
Written homework will be handed out on a Wednesday and is due back the following Monday. Your child is welcome to hand in their homework before its due date.
Your child will receive reading homework on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child keeps their reading book and reading record in their back for daily activities in school. If your child does not hand in their reading book when finished, the school will be unable to issue another until it is handed in.
Your child can earn up to 10 minutes of ‘Rainbow Time’ a day for good behaviour. If your child has earned all of their Rainbow Time, they will enjoy a special 50 minute play time on a Friday afternoon! Once a month, your child may bring in a toy to play with. Please see dates for ‘Own toys playtime’ below:
We look forward to welcoming back our teaching student, Mrs Mon, on the 30th of April. She will be with Primary 2A for 4 weeks and her last day is on the 25th of May.
This term our topic is ‘Houses and Homes’. We will be visited by the Aberdeen Urban Studies Trust on Monday the 30th of April. The visit will involve a walk around our community, so please ensure your child has a warm jacket, comfortable outdoor shoes for walking and a water bottle on this day.
We will also have the opportunity to take part in the ‘Forest Schools’ programme this term. You can read more about Forest Schools here:
Please ensure your child has appropriate outdoor clothing on the following dates:
