Good Luck P7s!

The P7s start their transition week at Glen Urquhart High School tomorrow.  They are all very excited (and maybe a bit nervous) and I know they are going to have an amazing few days.  🙂

Please meet me at the school gate tomorrow at 8.30am.  We’ll then walk up to the High School as a group.

The 3 Cs!

This afternoon, we developed our PE skills in the 3 Cs:

  • Coordination
  • Communication
  • Cooperation

We started by playing “Crab Football Clearout” with six balloons to try to keep off our beaches.  Next we played “Pass the Hoop” in groups of 7 or 8.  We finished with a few games of “Bench Dodgeball.”  Great fun!

Highland Hospice Afternoon Tea

Next Sunday, 24th June, there will be an afternoon tea from 2pm – 4pm.  This is in memory of the late and much-loved Miss Anne Duncan, who taught at Glenurquhart Primary School for over a decade.

Everyone is welcome – as are donations to Highland Hospice.  Please come along and enjoy cakes, a play area, mud kitchen, forest walks and live music from local children.

Please see the pdf poster below for more information:

Les chansons des couleurs

The P6/7 pupils worked in small groups to create a song of colours in French.  Each group was given a different nursery rhyme.  The words of the song had to be replaced with colour words.  Each team made up a song sheet and them performed their “chanson des couleurs” to the rest of the class.  The biggest problem was remembering the tune of the nursery rhyme!  A really giggly end to the week.  😉

Divertissement chantant!

Special Guests

The P7s were delighted to welcome Mr Russell (History) and Ms Weir (Business Admin) from Glen Urquhart High School.  They called in to introduce themselves and have a chat about S1.  P7s will have four days of transition at the high school, starting on Tuesday!

Sharing our learning

This term, some pupils have undertaken personal projects as well as studying novels related to WW1.  We started to share our learning by presenting posters to the class.  Both presentations were very informative, and a lot of thought had gone into the layout of both posters.  We look forward to hearing from more pupils over the next two weeks.

British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating Week

Remember to bring your water bottles to school tomorrow!


Glenurquhart Primary is taking part in BNF Healthy Eating Week this week.  The children were all introduced to this at an assembly yesterday.

The purpose of the Week is to raise awareness of healthy eating and drinking, cooking, where food comes from and being active to promote key health messages and habits to young people.

We will be trying some of the BNF Healthy Eating Week challenges during the Week.  These are:

  • Have breakfast;
  • Have 5 A DAY;
  • Drink plenty;
  • Get active;
  • Make a change.

Our school will focus on the Drink Plenty challenge with all the children encouraged to take their water bottles to school today and record how much they’ve drunk.
