Pupil Groups – Curriculum
The Curriculum Group are involved in helping make sure the learning environment and activities in our school are interesting, exciting and engaging. We focus on the library and the learning displays in the school, plan and organise various events, and help decide how the school spends money on new resources.
Our main focus is the School Library, making it more accessible for everyone and creating a nice area for reading and choosing books. The Library area has moved in to the main hall and we are in the process of writing to parents to ask for their help with book banding and running a weekly library session for all pupils. We would also like to sort all our reference books so that we can access them easily when we are doing different projects.
We held a super health week during the penultimate week of term. We did lots of great activities, such as the daily mile, football skills, made smoothies, had a go at pilates, and a bit of yoga.
We have had our first meeting of the new term and, as well as looking at the Library, we are also going to organise a Health Week in June. This is going to keep us very busy and we are looking forward to our next meeting so we can start planning!
As the school has been in lockdown since January, Pupil Groups have not been active. However, we are looking forward to getting back into action after the Easter Holidays.
We have recently purchased some more reading books for the P1-3 class which complement those which we already have. The class enjoy reading about Biff, Chip and Kipper and their adventures with the Magic Key. Some of our old resources will be given to Books Abroad.
Our ‘Found Words of Craigievar’ book has sold well, boosting our funds for making a new Library area. The World Book Day was a great success and we all came to school dressed as adjectives and made posters of characters, with clues as to who they were, to go on the front and back of the classroom doors. We also held a Literacy Open Afternoon where we told parents all about the way we learn literacy at Craigievar School
We have started to look at the Library area of the school and, together with the Citizenship Group, will work on ways to promote reading by celebrating World Book Day. We are also looking to launch the sale of our ‘Found Words of Craigievar’ book which we have created.
