To help raise funds, the Nursery we will be selling raffle tickets for our two Christmas hampers. We would also appreciate donations for the hampers and any other raffle prizes you are able to donate. Raffle tickets will go on sale next week.
The Nursery team would like to use money raised to purchase all weather suits or mini ipads but are open to suggestions from our families. After Christmas the children will be involved in deciding what the money will be spent on.
As a parent or carer, you may have heard that changes are being introduced to the way your child’s progress is assessed in primary and early secondary school.
These changes relate to Curriculum for Excellence and are being introduced to tell us whether children in P1, P4, P7 and S3 have achieved the Curriculum for Excellence-defined level of understanding in literacy and numeracy.
In this special edition newsletter, you will find a newly published leaflet for parents that provides information and aims to answer your questions about assessment of children’s progress and the introduction of national standardised assessments.
The new national standardised assessments are part of the National Improvement Framework.
More information on this and what it means for your child, can be found on the website Parentzone Scotland
This website is continually updated to ensure you have access to the latest information.
We would like to invite all our Nursery families and staff to complete a short online survey to help us improve the learning environment.
The Super Six
Once upon a time P4CT were just an ordinary class, or were they? It was an early November morning at Burnbrae Primary School. Burnbrae Primary was a big school and a lot of pupils attended. P4CT had a beautiful classroom because it had art and learning on the walls. But one day something awful happened and everybody got struck by an evil bug!
The horrible evil winter bug struck on 2nd November 2016. Fourteen people were sickly and had to stay in bed. There was a lot of bacteria and it was spreading disgusting illness. Only super six people were left because they always washed their hands with soap and warm water. Right now they were feeling brave and strong and soapy! Now the Super Six made a plan but with a soap potion made with banana soap, strawberries, haribos, a spoonful of coffee, vitamin C and a spoonful of Calpol. They chose these ingredients because they gave a mixture of healthiness, sugar, caffeine and medicine.
Finally they got in a Lamborghini borrowed from Conan who worked in a car shop. They knew that they needed to get to houses fast. When they got to houses they quickly gave the ill children a tube of potion. The next day twenty four pupils attended P4CT. THE SUPER SIX stayed standing and wrote this true story you have read today!
The following letters were sent home today with pupils
