Accelerated Reader

If you have a child in P4-7, they will probably have told you that here at St John’s we follow the Accelerated Reader programme for reading. Your child may have explained how it all works, and class teachers have sent information out as well, but we thought it might be useful to share this document which sets out some of the key information and terms used as part of the programme (we do not currently use myON however).

The AR quizzing site can only be accessed from school but we appreciate your support in encouraging your child to read at home and develop a love of books.

As always, please get in touch with your child’s class teacher if you have any queries about AR.

P5 A Week Of Firsts

It has been a busy week in P5 with a lot of firsts. Some children took part in swimming for the first time, others bikability while most took part in their first ever Dignity workshop along with their first trip to the school library! We have been learning about flowering and non flowering plants in Science, place value in Numeracy, anti bullying strategies through Drama, direct speech within Literacy and football skills in PE. We got outside for Maths week and have also really been enjoying our new class novel Wonder.
