Last Week of Term

It would be great if P6/7 pupils could have a quick check at home for any outstanding profile and homework jotters.  Also, parent feedback forms on the school reports are still very welcome.

Over the next three days, P6/7 will have lots of bits and pieces to take home.  If your child has a small schoolbag, please could they come to school with a large carrier bag each day too?

On Friday, pupils will also be asked to take home their indoor shoes, pencil cases, water bottles and PE kits as well any other pieces of personal property!

Many thanks for all your help!  🙂


Autograph Hunting

The P7s are keen to bring/wear a white or red school polo shirt tomorrow, so that they can ask staff and pupils to sign them.  If your child doesn’t have any old school polo shirts, then a neutral t-shirt would still work!  I have a selection of fabric pens which the pupils are welcome to use.  🙂

Sun Safety!

The forecast for this week is amazing!  P6/7 will be outside for PE from 11:15 – 12:15 tomorrow – please make sure you have your PE kit, a water bottle and that your skin is well protected for the session!  Pupils are welcome to bring in their own suncream which they can re-apply themselves.  Sun hats or baseball caps are a great idea too.

Invention & Innovation Workshop

This afternoon P6/7 learned about the design software and technology involved in 3D printing.  They learned about the design cycle and were given a design challenge using Spheroes.

After a short break, they were then taught to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) to create something that could be made using a 3D printer.  They had to complete 5 training modules and use this new knowledge to create a simple design.

They worked really hard and achieved a great deal in their 2 hour session.  Huge thanks to  the staff at the UHI STEM Hub, as well as Mrs Montague and Mr Ballance for accompanying us.

We look forward to seeing which design was picked to be printed out!

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.

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!
