The event is a chance to enjoy being a TEAM, celebrate health and wellness and have lots and lots of fun.
Children can come in their sports/PE kit . Let’s have a great time.
A huge well done to our P1-4 athletics team for brilliant performances at last Saturdays event. Super proud of each and every member of the team.

Minutes from last meeting can be found here Inshes Primary Parent Council Minutes – 8th May 2018
We are currently working on Persuasive Letter Writing in Literacy and the theme will be based around the Jacobite Rebellion. Think about all of the words that you could use to persuade someone to do something for you(or not do something?). Continue reading your own books at home as much as you can and don’t forget to take your library books in on Friday if you have taken them home.
Keep playing TTRockstars and working on multiplication and division strategies. We are going to be looking at angles in maths and continuing to look at fractions, decimals and percentages in numeracy.
The topic is the Jacobites!!! As we are writing a persuasive letter on Thursday, it would be a great idea to think about and plan who or what you are going to be writing about…are you a Clan Chief trying to persuade Bonnie Prince Charlie not to fight the Redcoats? Are you an English General asking for more cannons to fight the Jacobiotes at the Battle of Culloden? We brainstormed, we had ideas, come up with something that will astound me…
This weeks activity will be all about school uniform and why it is so important…you may not have noticed but your buddy gets to wear what they want but are about to move into Primary 1 and be expected to wear a uniform like everyone else.
School Sports Day
Remember Monday is Sports Day and you can arrive in your Gym Kit but DO NOT forget your school uniform…the inspectors will be arriving on Monday too.
As you already know, we will welcome Her Majesty’s Inspectors for Education (HMIe) and the Care Inspectorate (Early Learning and Childcare), week beginning 28th May. A number of Inspectors will spend time with us over the week, gathering information and evidence in how we are performing as a school. The Inspectors will join classes and also have dialogues with groups of children, staff and partners. If you, Parent/Carers, stated in the survey (now closed) that you would be interested in meeting with an Inspector during the week, you may be invited directly by the administrator of the HMIe team.
After the Inspection, a report will be drafted and published at a later date to our school community and beyond.
We are all proud of TEAM Inshes and we are looking forward to sharing our achievements. We are welcoming HMIe who will seek out strengths in our school but also guide and support us for further improvements. Our future, TEAM Inshes, is exciting!
