Counting in Autumn

 

When we got back to class we thought about other things we could count outside. Twigs, shells, sea glass, flowers, petals, branches and pegs were a few of our ideas. Maybe you could think of a few others while your out and about this weekend.

P1 Parents’ Meeting Reminder

A wee reminder…

Don’t forget we have our P1 Parents’ Meeting on Wednesday evening (7 September). This is a wonderful opportunity to hear all about your child’s learning in Primary One. We will also share ways to support their learning at home. Please come to the main entrance to meet together first in the gym hall at 7pm.

We’d love to see you there!
