C4 English Phonics

This week C4 will  begin learning English phonics.  This will be in addition to their ongoing Gaelic literacy lessons.  Like most other City of Edinburgh schools, here at Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce, we use the Read Write Inc Phonics programme.

Please find below a link to the parent information regarding this programme.


This is for your information only.  Should you have any questions, then please get in touch with Laura Young, the Learning Support teacher, who is supporting the delivery of this programme to all C4 learners.

Dyslexia Unwrapped

Dyslexia Unwrapped is an online hub for children and young people with dyslexia.


The site contains info, strategies, real life stories and fun stuff too. Also, on the site is See Dyslexia Differently a fab animation all about dyslexia. Check it out at https://youtu.be/11r7CFlK2sc

The important thing to remember is Dyslexia does not mean that you are not smart. It has nothing to do with intelligence and IQ and it comes with many strengths as well as the challenges.

C6 Writing Beach

C6 SfL Writing

C6 are using Nessy Writing Beach to help them to develop their writing skills.

“Writing Beach is very clever.  I like playing the games and waking the characters”


“I think it’s a fun way to learn about punctuation and writing in general.”


“The Hairy Sentences games really make you think.”

Ag ionnsachadh tro gheamannan

Le bhith a’ coimhead air faclan gu tric, tha e a’ fàs nas fhasa dhuinn an leughadh agus an sgrìobhadh.  Tha sinn air a bhith ag ionnsachadh cuid de na faclan cumanta le bhith a’ cluich a’ gheama ‘Cairt mu dheireadh!’, a tha coltach ris a’ gheama ‘Uno!’.

Pom Pom: Chluich sinn geama airson fàs nas cinntiche le cur-ris. An seo bha againn ri paidhrichean fhaighinn a nì 9.  Cia mheud paidhir diofraichte a th’ann?  0 + 9      1 + 8      2 + 7    3 + 6    4 + 5   …

Rocky: Is urrainn dhuinn àireamhan gu 100 aithneachadh agus is urrainn dhuinn an cur ann an òrdugh. Chuir sinn ar sgilean gu feum ann an geama air a’ choimpiutair.
