S2 Pupil’s Parents/Carers

All S2 pupils have been issued with their S3 Course Choice Form at registration today and have attended a special virtual assembly on how to fill in their option form, where they can get advice and when to submit the form (4th May 2021).  Please see an example of the form and the course choice information booklet attached to this message.  This booklet is very comprehensive as it gives advice on how to make these choices, what the course consist of and internet links. Guidance teachers will be discussing choices with pupils in the next 2 weeks and pupils have been encouraged to talk to their subject teachers to find out how they are doing in their subjects.  Please read through the form and booklet with your child before they hand it in.

Thank you.

Consent packs are being sent out in school bags over the next few days for pupils invited for the HPV vaccine and a request to return the consent packs to schools within 7 days.

In order to help our pupils revise and our parents to support revision at home, the English Department would like to share this guide to effective revision. 

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lHMKSj3pvrBF0AyIi4T37dnLZhM27MPABQnlGRI49qs/edit?usp=sharing

 

The first half of the guide looks at effective strategies and ways to approach revision to add the most value.   It focuses on six strategies:

  • Spacing
  • Retrieval Practice
  • Interleaving
  • Elaboration
  • Concrete Examples
  • Dual Coding

 

The second part suggests lots of English specific activities and areas to focus on.  This section could be also be useful when creating a revision plan. 

We hope this guide will be helpful to pupils and parents and would like to wish everyone a happy Easter break!   See you next term!

A few parents have been in touch to ask how they can support their child to help them do their best in upcoming assessments.  Please be assured that teachers have been working with pupils to help them prepare and be successful in these assessments.  In addition, pupils will be in school during this period so teachers can support pupils with their revision.

 

There are a number of things that pupils can do to prepare:

  1. Go on to their Google Classroom.  Look through the activities that have been set and compete any that they didn’t manage to do during lockdown.  Teachers have posted activities that will help with revision and assessments
  2. Use BBC Bitesize – there are great resources here for every subject
  3. SQA Past papers and marking instruction can be foundA few parents have been in touch to ask how they can support their child to help them do their best in upcoming assessments.  Please be assured that teachers have been working with pupils to help them prepare and be successful in these assessments.  In addition, pupils will be in school during this period so teachers can support pupils with their revision.
