We have all enjoyed welcoming back pupils to Sciennes, looking refreshed and ready for the new term. Our new pupils are settling extremely well and we also warmly welcome new Class Teachers Miss Jenny McGrouther in P4 and Miss Katy Stewardson in P5 to the team.
P4, P6 and P7 have already visited the Book Festival, with P3 and P5 due to visit next week. Edinburgh International Festival professional dance troupe L.A. Dance Project generously led free dance workshops in school with each of our three P7 classes which were very well received by pupils and staff alike.
Thank you for equipping pupils with sharp pencils, rulers, glue sticks, coloured pencils and erasers in pencil cases as well as full P.E. kit which includes a change of clothes and a change of indoor shoes in a P.E. bag.
We are also grateful for your support with school uniform and helping us to discourage the children from wearing jeans. Please note that P1-P6 pupils wear navy blue, with our royal blue uniform reserved to distinguish our P7 senior pupils.
We encourage our pupils to be “All in line by ten to nine” and are grateful for your support in ensuring the classes are lined up and ready to enter school by the second morning bell.
Further information can be found in our online weekly newsletter from Mrs Noble – The Sciennes Flyer. Each year group will also receive a paper copy Class Newsletter each term from their Class Teachers.
