Liberton Lightning Girls’ Football Training – p2-7

Liberton Lightning will begin our winter training schedule from the 29th of October.

P2-3 training will take place in the gym hall from 3.15pm – 4.05pm and will be focused, as ever, on small-sided games to increase ball contacts, 1-on-1s, goal and, most importantly, enjoyment. Trainers should be worn in the hall. Parents should collect players from the usual place at 4.05pm sharp.

P4-7 training will return to Peffermill to make use of their floodlights. Training for the P4-7s will focus on skills development, small-sided games and 7-a-side games. Players should bring football boots suitable for 3G (plastic studs of any type, avoid trainers and/or boots with screw-in studs). University of Edinburgh have kindly given us a discount again this year, so that training costs will work out as under £1 per week, per player. You should have received a letter last week regarding consent and payment, but if you have not, please let me know. Players do not need to stay away from training until they have paid, just let me know if players would like to join us. Miss Mason and I will set off for Peffermill by 4.20pm, so any players walking with us should meet us at the reception by that time.

If you are interested in a Liberton Lightning training top, please contact me for further details on ordering.

 This week at Liberton Primary

  • On Monday Primary 1 and Primary 2 had more singing lessons with NYCOS and P3 had their session on Tuesday.

  • On Thursday Tempest Photography were in school taking individual and sibling photos.
  • Also on Thursday P5B continued their block of swimming lessons.
  • P6 classes continued with their Latin lessons this week.

Coming up at Liberton Primary

  • On Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd we will have in-service days for staff.  During these days we will be reviewing our mathematics curriculum, developing our skills in teaching drama, confirming the next steps of our behaviour policy, having training sessions in Emotions Works and Lego Therapy and also further developing our strategies for supporting children in the playground.

Bikes in the playground

Children should not ride their bikes in the playground before or after school.  This week we had one accident and another two near misses.  While we love our children to ride their bikes safely to school, the playground is very busy and there are lots of younger children running around.  Children should dismount at the school gate and push their bikes to the shed for locking up.

Home Learning Review

Thank you to all the parents who contributed to the consultation on our Home Learning proposals at the Parent Consultation Evenings.  There was a clear majority from parents who felt that this was a positive move with over two thirds saying they liked this idea.  We will now be working with the staff to implement this change as soon as we can and will let you know full details when it is up and running.  As with any new policy we will continue to review this and make changes as necessary to best meet the needs of our pupils.  Full results:  107 in favour (67%), 17 not sure (11%), 34 against (22%).

 

New playground equipment

I mentioned last week that we were delighted that we have successfully bid for a piece of free playground equipment from the National Galleries of Scotland.  The tunnel and slide will be a brilliant addition to our playground.  We are very grateful to Maxi Construction who are currently refurbishing our building for kindly offering to transport the equipment to school.

 

Swashbuckle

In June pupils from P1 to 3 had the chance to go to Glasgow to take part in the filming of this CBeebies show.  The screening dates have now been confirmed:

  • 19 October – Episode: Make Me Laugh.
  • 23 November – Episode: Swashdance.

 

Refurbishment Update

Over the holidays refurbishment of the building will continue and the works will move from an overnight to a daytime schedule.  Following the holiday P5C will be the first class to be decanted to the music room in the huts.  This decant should last around two weeks.  Each of the classes from P1 to P6 will be decanted over the coming year.  Some other shorter decants may also be necessary as the works continue.  Also over the holidays the school office will be refurbished following flood damage.

 

LPSA Halloween Disco – Friday 1st November (see poster attached)

It’s nearly time for the LPSA Halloween disco! Tickets are £3 each and will be available to buy in the school foyer before and after school from Monday 28th Oct to Friday 1st Nov.

The disco times are:

  • P1 & P2: 6pm to 6.45pm (parents have to stay on site for the P1 & P2 disco)
  • P3 & P4: 7pm to 8pm
  • P5 to P7: 8.15pm to 9.15pm

Dressing up is optional – no scary masks, please.

 

We are also looking for volunteers to help sell tickets and volunteers to help on the night with set-up, supervision of the hall, first aid, manning entrance and exit doors, helping with craft and activities in the break-out space, and with clear-up afterwards. If you are able to help out during any of the above timeslots, please get in touch at lpsa.communications@gmail.com. The disco is always one of our most popular events, and its success relies very much on the efforts of our helpers. You don’t need any special skills or experience – we just need you!

 

LPSA meeting – Thursday 24th October – 7pm to 9pm

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 24th October from 7pm to 9pm (venue to be confirmed). If you have items for the agenda – any school-related ideas, concerns or issues you would like to discuss at the meeting – please email them to us at lpsa.communications@gmail.com by Friday 11th October. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 24th October – all welcome!

 

Nursery and Childcare Survey

The Scottish Government plans to expand Early Learning and Childcare services to almost double the number of funded hours from 600 currently to 1140 each year.  These extra hours will be available to all children aged 3 or 4 and for some children aged 2 and will be in place by session 2020/21.  Families should have choice and flexibility in how they use services – including whether they use all of their child’s funded hours and whether they use them during school term-time or throughout the year. 

By early learning and childcare, we mean all pre-school education such as nurseries, early years centres, childminders and playgroups.

The City of Edinburgh Council is keen to maintain high quality early learning and childcare services as they change and expand, to make them work well for you and your family.  To do this, we need your help so that we can plan for the future.

We want to find out what your experience of early learning and childcare is really like in Edinburgh – whether you use it or not, what you like and if there’s anything you think could be changed or improved.

Please help us with this by taking some time to complete this survey.  It should only take around ten minutes. www.edinburgh.gov.uk/earlyyearsparentconsultation

Raising Teens With Confidence is coming to Goodtrees Neighbourhood Centre.  This is a 6 week course starting on Thursday the 31st of October 1.00pm -3.00pm. There are limited places available, please see the information leaflet attached above for more information.

Transport help needed!

We are delighted that we have successfully bid for a piece of free playground equipment from the National Galleries of Scotland.  The tunnel and slide will be a brilliant addition to our playground.  The problem is that we need to provide transport and it is quite large (L7.2m x W4m x H3.7m).  Do you know of anyone who would be able to help us out with this?  We would probably need a flat-bed truck.  If so please get in touch.

Lost Property

Please check our lost property area for any missing items this week.  Any unnamed items not claimed by Friday will be recycled.

Book Fair

Next week during Parent Consultations, there will be a book fair in the school hall whereby you will be able to purchase books and small pocket toys. As the school is moving to a “cashless” system, we have very little spare change. It would be appreciated if you intend to purchase an item, that you bring in notes and an assortment of coins to use, thank you.

  • On Monday some members of our basketball team attended the launch of the JrNBA league at the City Chambers.  For the last two seasons Liberton Primary have been national champions.  Good luck to them in going for the hat-trick!
  • On Monday and Tuesday Primary 1 to 3 had more singing lessons with NYCOS.
  • Thank you so much to the Royal Observatory for bringing in their mobile planetarium for sessions with P3 and P7.  The children really enjoyed it.  (For your chance to check out the resources at the Observatory for free see below).
  • On Wednesday we had our first Libby Leaders afternoon of the year and our biggest yet!  The children got a chance to meet their new groups and plan their activities for the year.
  • On Thursday our assemblies used the example of Greta Thunberg to discuss how children can use their voices and opinions to change the world around them.  Some of our children also talked about their experience taking part in the Climate Protest on Friday.  The children also got a chance to share their thoughts and opinions on our new behaviour policy.
  • Also on Thursday P5A had the last of their block of swimming lessons.
  • Also this week staff from Granton, Juniper Green and Murrayburn Primaries visited our P4 classes as part of a sharing good practice programme between our schools.
  • On Friday our basketball team will start their JrNBA defence.

  • Also on Thursday P5B will begin their block of swimming lessons.

Show Racism the Read Card:  Dress in Red Day October 2nd

On Friday October 4th the children are invited to come to school wearing an item of red clothing instead of their school uniform.  There is no charge for this.  We are doing this as part of the campaign of stamping out racism in football as well as our wider society.  Children should not wear football strips (see below).  More information can be found at www.theredcard.org

 

 

Football kit

We discourage children from wearing football kit in PE or other activities.  It is sometimes thought that this is because it will cause arguments amongst our children.  In fact our children are very respectful of each other and the different teams that they support.  Our concern is the cost of these kits for parents (between £65 and £90 for a full kit) and that children feel that they should have the latest kit for the latest team.  A simple t-shirt is much simpler and more accessible for everyone.

 

School Photos:  Tempest Photography will be in school on Thursday 10th October to take individual and sibling school photos.

 

Parent Consultation appointments:  Details of your appointments should be in school bags.  If you do not have an appointment and require one please contact the school office.

 

Running Club:  This will restart on 4th October at 8am for pupils in P5-7.  If your child is interested and does not already have a letter then further information is available at the school office.

 

Football Success:  Well done to Olivia in P7 who has been chosen to play for the City of Edinburgh/SFA Select squad.

 

Headlice:  Please check your child’s hair regularly.  Treatments are available for local pharmacies.

Doors Open Days Royal Observatory:  The Open Days are an entirely free and are being held this coming weekend. Every part of the observatory site is open to the public with nearly 100 engineers and scientists volunteering over the weekend to talk about their work. There will be loads of family-friendly activities e.g, lego-building, face-painting, comet-making shows.  More information can be found at https://www.roe.ac.uk/whatsnew/event/20190928/

Pupil Safety

Nuts:  To keep all our children safe please do not send in any food products containing nuts to school with your child.

Parking:  Despite numerous texts people are still parking on the zig-zag lines outside of school.  This is putting the safety of our children at risk.  Photos of the offending vehicles have been passed on to our community police officer.
