Spring Term at

Livingstone Primary School!

In February we will be raising money for lots of very worthwhile charities.

On Friday 2nd February we had a great time participating in 'Number Day', raising money for the NSPCC. We did lots of number work in class, as well as completing number trails around the school. There were lots of prizes to be won and we raised lots of money for a worthwhile cause! 

Here are some pictures of us 'Number Hunting'!

A message from the Headteacher:

Dear Parents,

I am delighted on behalf of the staff, Governors and children to welcome you to Livingstone. We are a friendly and caring school and we work hard to secure good relationships with everyone in our community.

Every child is unique. We have high expectations of our pupils and will support each individual to realise their potential. We respect and value each child and family. When your child becomes a pupil at Livingstone then you become a member of the Livingstone family.

With your help, we will provide opportunities for your child to develop a full range of intellectual, social, physical and emotional abilities in a secure and stimulating environment. Our curriculum is broad and challenging with a strong focus on the basic skills of literacy, oracy and numeracy. We expect and achieve high standards of behaviour based on mutual respect. We have a dedicated and experienced staff who are always ready to help you and your child.

We have some remarkable young people at Livingstone - your children! I look forward to joining you on your child’s learning journey.

Welcome to Livingstone!

Yours sincerely

Mrs Linda Crombie
Headteacher

 

Well done to the 'Golden Award Winners' from Years 1,3 and 5 for December, who received prizes in assembly for hard work and exemplary behaviour.

We raised lots of money on Friday 9th February for 2 amazing charities.

Sign2Sing

On 9th February we participated in Sign2Sing. We had great fun learning and performing the song 'Friends Forever' to raise money and awareness for Sign Health. Sign health raises essential funds to help vulnerable deaf children and adults.

Shine Bright, Wear Bright!

On the 9th February we also supported CHUMS (Mental health and emotional well being service for children and young people) by wearing brightly coloured clothes.

Safer Internet Day

Tuesday 6th February was Safer Internet Day. 

The slogan for this year's Safer Internet Day was “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. We are committed to ensuring that we promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. This is becoming increasingly important in the modern world.  

All of the children are educated on the importance of Internet safety on a regular basis in Computing and PSHE lessons, but will be participating in focussed activities on 6th February.

Here are some website to help familiarise yourself with Internet Safety.
