Primary 5 and Primary 1 Buddy Time
Can you guess the game they are playing?
Mini Goals in our Playground!
Primary 4, 5, 6 and 7 have had a lot of fun with the mini goals out in the playground at lunchtime.
We alternate the P4-7 lunchtime playground routines with a 'football week' and then a 'no football' week, with days for each year group to have the pitch for their games.
The P7s take the goals in and out each day and some of them are additionally wondering if it would help the younger classes if we introduced a referee into the games.

PTA: Pounds for Primaries
The PTA have signed up for us to take part in the Evening Express Pounds for Primaries Competition.
The aim is to collect as many of the special tokens that will appear in the Evening Express between Saturday 25th September and Monday 1st November. Schools that enter will be split into three categories depending on size with the top three schools in each category winning big cash prizes.
Every school that collects a minimum of 250 tokens will get at least £100 each.
If you manage to collect any tokens please send these into school with your child and these will be collected at the school office.
This term our nursery children have started to attend full days which has meant that they now all stay for lunch. They have been getting used to new daily lunch routines; choosing their meals, practising using cutlery, using table manners and enjoying the experience of sitting enjoying their food together and chatting with friends. They even know to clear any food leftovers into the food recycling container so it can be composted!
Building life skills together!
Library Visits have started again.
Each class has a designated library time and library books are then taken home to be shared or read at home.
Please return books to your allocated days, children will be able to take out another library book when they return their book. If a book isn’t returned, a child won’t be able to take a further book.
Our children love to read and we love to share the new books and authors with our children.
Here are the new books in the library this week!
Which class has the best green-fingers?
Every term, children reflect on their skills and talents outside school and then write a termly House Highlight. The P7s and I review and share the wide range of talents in assembly and we display some on the House Highlight dining room boards.
Enjoy reading about our talented, skilful children.

Open Day Visits Next Week
We would normally have a Primary 2-7 Open Day event at this time of year. This is a chance for parents to see their child's classroom and get a flavour of the type of routines and tasks that happen in the class.

How we communicate and share information - please read and ask at school if you are unsure of any of the different ways we communicate with you.
Ashley Road Reporting Calendar
Here is our Reporting Calendar. This will give you a yearly overview of the different ways in which we report to families throughout the year.
Last week was Heather's last day - we had a colourful, special assembly with all the staff and children (virtually). Our historical plaque summarises our feelings! The children didn't know that Heather has been very involved in many different city historical groups over the years - in particular getting plaques for important and significant Aberdeen females placed around the city.
