We love to celebrate achievements at Auchengray Primary and are especially interested in what our children do out of school.
So congratulations to –
Diarmad has achieved Swim Skills 2 Award
Tuesday and Wednesday - Primary 1-3
Monday and Tuesday - Primary 4-7
On these days, the children should come to school dressed in clothing appropriate to undertake PE outside.
If you have any information or can help us in our topics, please let the school know!
In Maths, we will be continuing our Number and Numeracy.
In Language, we will continue to use the North Lanarkshire programme for reading and spelling. We are also developing our literacy by focusing on talking and listening activities across learning and using different reading skills such as scanning and skimming, making predictions, metallinguistics and reading for understanding.
This year we will be developing an on-line Skills' Diary. This will take the form of a Google Site for Primary 4-7 and a Jamboard for Primary 1-3.
To help make learning relevant, Curriculum for Excellence promotes skills for:
- Learning – thinking skills which will encourage the deep learning learners can apply in real-life and relevant situations.
- Life – core skills required to enable learners to make meaningful contributions to their own lives and the wider society.
- Work – skills identified in the Scottish Government’s lifelong skills strategy which are valued highly by employers and are key to success in the world of work.
An important focus of Curriculum for Excellence is pupils being responsible for their own learning and setting targets. At Auchengray Primary School, our children reflect on their learning in a variety of ways through group discussions, conversations with the teacher and other adults at the school and through peer and self-assessment. At Auchengray Primary School, we are developing setting targets in Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing.
Greater ownership of personal learning leads to confidence and a sense of success through achievement.
Across learning, children will make progress by developing their learning and thinking skills. The development of thinking skills is central to Curriculum for Excellence.
These transferable skills will equip pupils for the world of further and higher education, for work and for life.
