Happy New Year and welcome back.

I hope everyone  had an enjoyable and peaceful  break.

Firstly, thank you very much indeed for all the thoughtful and generous gifts – they are all much appreciated.

It has been lovely to catch up with the children this week and hear all their news. We have spent this week reminding ourselves of routines and expectations.

Welcome to our new pupil who has joined us this week along with his older sister in p4 and younger brother at nursery.

The children have decided that they would like to spend some time investigating magnets and magnetism, so we will begin to explore this topic next week.

Reading groups will continue in class as we begin to explore fantasy settings in stories. Key aspects of our learning will include creative thinking, communication, developing empathy and enquiry/prediction.

Reading homework will restart in the not too distant future.
