P567 Pop-up Restaurant: Our pupils were tremendous last Friday evening as they organised and hosted their pop-up restaurant. Their customers were truly impressed with the quality of the food and the service. Mrs Easingwood did an incredible job in supporting the class to plan, organise and carry out the event. Well done!

P567 Assembly – Wednesday 9th May, 2pm: As a follow-up to their pop-up restaurant, the P567 pupils are leading an assembly to showcase their recent learning. Parents and carers are welcome to attend.

Primary 7 Transition mornings: There has been a slight adjustment to the start date of the upcoming visits to Eyemouth High School. The first will take place on Wednesday 9th May (not 2nd), followed by 16th and 23rd May. Pupils should wear normal school uniform and will need a packed lunch.

Outdoor Learning Week: Following its success last year, we are organising our Outdoor Learning Week NEXT WEEK. Every day pupils will do something outside. Relevant details will follow as required.

Appointments to see staff: Thank you to those parents and carers who have supported our recent attempts to improve our parent-to-staff meetings. Phoning the school to make an appointment is really helpful. Please continue to do so and we will accommodate as best we can.

August 2018: As we are in the final term of this current school year, we need to support our nursery pupils in their transition to Primary 1 – this involves them meeting their prospective teacher. New P1s will be receiving a letter about transition arrangements very soon. We are not anticipating any change of class teachers at this moment in time so teachers will continue in their current classrooms.

This has been a fun week in Primary1/2. We now have 3 new pupils and we welcome them all and hope they are finding friends and getting to know us. We are hoping to set up a Village Shop in our class, so please send in any empty food boxes to add to our resources. We have been modelling and getting sticky and talking about our Story Books. Shirley came to talk about the importance of looking after our teeth. It was really interesting.

The P1/2s have started their new topic called ‘The Village’. As part of this we will look at different housing in Coldingham which will give us ideas to make 3D model houses. We would like to go on a walk around Coldingham on Tuesday, 8th May just after school starts and would like some adult helpers. If you could spare some time that morning, please let us know as soon as possible. Many thanks! Ms Clubb.

It’s Outdoor Learning Week: Learning outdoors is such a rich experience and this week our pupils will be doing a lot of it. Please send your child to school in ‘outdoor appropriate’ clothing and footwear as well as a sun hat.

Sunshine – Sun safe: The wonderful weather is very welcome but we must make sure our children are sun safe. As appropriate, please apply sun cream at the start of each school day, send your child with a sun hat and make sure they have a water bottle every day. Thank you.

P567 Assembly – Wednesday 9th May, 2pm: As a follow-up to their pop-up restaurant, the P567 pupils are leading an assembly to showcase their recent learning. Parents and carers are welcome to attend.

Primary 7 Transition mornings: Reminder – Wednesday 9th, 16th and 23rd May. Pupils should wear normal school uniform and will need a packed lunch. They will travel by bus to arrive at the High School for 10am and will return after 1pm.

Meeting of Minds – Tuesday 15th May, 10 – 11am, Eyemouth Early Years Centre: Meeting of Minds is a parent led support group which gives parents and carers of children with additional / complex needs the opportunity to connect with key professionals and other families in a relaxed and friendly environment.

P4 Football Festival & P6 Rugby Festival – Thursday 17th May: Following its success for the past two years, this joint sporting festival will be taking place again this year.

Scottish National Standardised Assessments: The Scottish Government has introduced a new assessment for pupils in P1, P4 and P7. If your child is in one of these year groups, they will be completing this online assessment over the next few weeks. If you have any questions, contact the school or visit https://standardisedassessment.gov.scot/

Vandalism: Unfortunately, our school playground has a history of being ‘spoilt’ outside of school hours. As a result, SBC have installed CCTV cameras around the school site. This is a sad necessity. Please help us by being the ‘eyes and ears’ over the weekends and holidays. Thank you

Mr Bewsey’s Muckle Muir Challenge: To raise funds for Radio Borders ‘Cash for Kids’, Mr Bewsey is doing a sponsored bike ride. He will be cycling from Helensburgh to Dunbar (134 miles) in one day. Any support gratefully received – visit www.justgiving.com and search for ‘Bewsey’. Thank you
