Our new Woodside newspaper, Woodside Word went on sale on Tuesday 31st January. The paper, written entirely by pupils, contains news stories, interesting articles and interviews with staff. The pupils loved going out in the playground selling the paper to parents and friends. The March edition goes on sale tomorrow, but if you missed the February edition, you can read the free online edition now. newspaper master
On Friday we had a very successful Reading Workshop. Parents were invited into school to learn more about how we teach reading in Primaries 4-7. The parents were given an overview of the work we do in classes and were able to watch a video showing a P5 class reading with their teacher.
The workshop finished with a practical session, where children from each primary came into the hall to show the parents what they do in class and invite the parents to take part in the lesson. It was wonderful to hear so much great discussion between the parents and the children.
All the handouts, videos and information from the workshop have now been loaded onto the website for those parents who were unable to attend the session.
