Lots of parents came into school on Friday 2nd Nov to find out how they can help to improve their child’s writing.
The Parents’ Impact Training started by giving parents a special writing pack that included punctuation and vocabulary pyramids and step by step help for writing recounts. There was a short explanation of how to use the pack and then everyone went into the classrooms to work with their child.
Research has clearly shown that the children who achieve the most are the ones who get support at home. Over the next 6 weeks the parents are going to help their child to write a series of recounts using the pack to improve the writing and move their child onto a higher level.
Thank you to all the parents who came into school we had a fantastic turnout and really value your time and support.
On Friday 28th. September Wilson Stuart School really got behind the Macmillan “World’s Biggest Coffee morning”. With very generous contributions of delicious cakes from Parents and Staff, the school Hall and Community Room became two “Cafes extraordinaire”. Teacher Dave Jackson, and school staff Kathy Byrne, Shelagh Lee, Jo-Anne Clement, Jennie Handy amongst others, worked really hard all morning to present and serve a fantastic array of cakes and biscuits to Guests, Parents, Students and Staff. The event was another example of the great team-work and commitment of the Wilson Stuart School community. Everyone made donations (which included lots of our students’ pocket money) and the fantastic sum of £425 was raised for the MacMillan Cancer Charity. Brilliant and well-done!
