Hello everyone, and a happy Tuesday to you all!
We hope you are having a lovely day, and have managed to complete some of your home learning for today.
Our first update today is a message from Jennifer Longstaff, the chair of our Parent Council-
As we are now in the last month of the academic school year we are looking to host a virtual Parent Council meeting in the next couple of weeks, when the Senior Leadership Team may have some answers to your questions from the City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Government.
If you have a question you would like answered please complete the following form by Sunday 7th June https://forms.gle/Q5drduUYDfbV5ZFa7.
There is also an option here for you to nominate yourself for one of our Parent Council posts in 2020-21, which will be voted for in our AGM.
The June meeting will largely be based on the following agenda:
-Introductions and virtual meeting rules;
-A schools update by the Senior Leadership Team;
-Your questions to the Senior Leadership Team;
-A brief Chair’s report;
-A brief Treasurers report;
-Confirmation of dates for virtual AGM and PC meetings in the 2020-21 school year.
Our virtual meeting link will only be shared to those who notify us via the above form or at firstname.lastname@example.org that they are wanting to attend, in order to keep the meeting secure. Date and form of meeting information will be shared once they are confirmed next week.
We’d also like to remind you about ‘Broughton Reads’, launched by Mrs Gowans yesterday. We’d love you to share your photos of you reading for enjoyment- send us a photo of you reading while you have your lunch once a week, and don’t forget to ‘drop everything and read’ at 2.30pm each Thursday until the end of term! We’d also love to see you sharing your recommendations with us of things you’ve enjoyed reading. Reading for enjoyment can be books, comics, recipes, leaflets, instructions, online, all different sorts!
To finish today, we’ve had some lovely home learning shared with us! Afnan in P6 has been very creative. Here is a photo of her bright and colourful creation, which she has made by hand! She has made it as a memento of this time we are living through- what a great idea, and well done Afnan, thanks for sharing this with us through Teams!
If you share a photo of something you’re proud of on Teams, and would like us to share it on the website, do as Afnan did and just ask! We’re more than happy to promote and celebrate the creative home learning we know is happening every day!
That’s all for today folks! Enjoy the rest of your day, and always, stay safe!
Mrs Venn, Mr Borthwick, Miss Bradley and Mrs Gowans
