Due to the Norovirus outbreak across Clackmannanshire we had to cancel our scheduled P1 parents' presentation at Banchory.

As an unplanned alternative, we are holding a virtual session on Friday 21st June at 1:30pm. Mrs Kennedy will give a video overview of alll the key information every P1 Parent needs to know and helping you understand what we're all about at Banchory.

You can find out about grants that are available and all the important stuff like lunches, PE kit and see the faces of the staff who will be supporting your little people as they start school for the first time in August.

The video will stay available all summer and you will be able to see the questions people asked so don't worry if you can't make it for the live event.

This is a lovely and heartwarming tale about three bear siblings. They start to wonder how they can all be amazing but the story teaches that we are all equally amazing in our own ways. Great little story.

Well done to this young lady for staying cool as a cucumber under pressure when she struggled with the page turns. Another of our departing P7s leaves another positive mark on Banchory.

WHY

How Can I Support My Child’s Learning?

Plan trips and travels as a family

Have a family approach to travel. Investigate the area and explore the culture before you go. Get children involved in pricing and research. Read reviews together.

Help them find the answers to their questions

Children are curious. They ask questions. Google has the answers when you don’t. Why not ask Google together and enjoy discovering new things together.

Watch a family movie and talk about it

Movies can make us think about issues and ideas in new ways. Make some popcorn and have a family movie night watching one of these great movies.

Write or tell stories together

Writing and telling stories can be a fun way to develop your child’s language skills and imagination. WHO?  WHAT? WHY? WHERE? WHEN? are the important questions every story needs to answer.

Explore the World online

Can’t afford that trip to Australia? Explore it anyway with virtual trips. Watch travel shows on YouTube for a country. Price up a trip for fun. Watch a movie that’s set there. Cook up some country themed food. Get Google Maps and Google Earth on the go and walk about the streets.

Speak With Them

Words are hugely important in a child’s development. Talk to them as much and as often as you can. Point things out from the bus and the car. Share ideas. Tell stories from your childhood. Help them understand the world.
