Things to remember for tomorrow…

Just some quick reminders!

  • Our church service is at 10am tomorrow morning.  We’d love you to join us, if you can.
  • At hometime (12:10pm) all pupils will be asked to take home their water bottles, PE kits, pencil cases and indoor shoes.  A spare plastic carrier bag would be very handy – especially if they have a small schoolbag.
  • Please can all profiles jotters and any remaining homework jotters be handed in tomorrow morning?

Thanks very much.  🙂


DYW Assembly

An impressive start to our World of Work presentations. 🙂


A big well done to the P6/7s chosen to present their Developing the Young Workforce powerpoints at assembly today.  These were very informative and interesting and the children presented their information well.

Also, well done to the Strings group who practised for the nativity in front of the whole school.  Their Silent Night performance was lovely.

What a great afternoon!  Our PE lessons were put into practice when we danced 5 social dances, once to traditional music and then a second time to a more up to date tune.  We also had time for pass the parcel in our year groups, and a really competitive round of musical statues!  HUGE thanks to Mrs Woodhouse and her amazing helpers for hosting such a fantastic ‘do!’

Once we got back to school, we enjoyed some party food in our own classrooms.  P6/7 were very brave and tried Miss Mullin’s banana bread, and some pupils even tried some French cheeses (Camembert and Brie) too!

Thank you so much to all our PSAs for all their hard work behind the scenes making the parties happen: wrapping pass the parcel, washing and chopping food and then doing the washing up afterwards!!  🙂







Christmas Fair

We’re all set up and ready for the fair tomorrow!  We hope you will be able to join us – 11.15-12.10pm.

Children will be able to reserve their items prior to break by bringing in the money for it.

P6/7 prices (as calculated by the children) are:

  • Christmas snowflake cards: £1.25
  • Emoji tree decorations: £1.25
  • Lollypop stick decorations: individually priced.

(£3 should be enough to buy one of each!)

Food industry interviews

Since last Monday, P6/7s have been busy interviewing people from the food industry about their jobs and the skills that they use.  P6/7s are now busy preparing their class talks, some of which will be shared with the whole school on Monday morning!

Our thanks go to our interviewees:
– Mr McCafferty (Highland Council Compliance Officer)
– Mr Girvan (Corrimony Farm)
– Mrs MacPherson (JM Cake Craft)
– Mrs Carroll (Glenurquhart Day Care Centre)
– Mrs Sweetman (Glenurquhart Day Care Centre)
– Mrs Beach (Fiddlers Restaurant)
– Ms Monkhouse (Oakwood Restaurant)

Anti-bullying posters

On Monday afternoon P6/7 shared their anti-bullying posters with the rest of the school.  Each group explained different aspects of bullying and what to do about it.  Some of the children are reading “Wonder” at the moment and were able to reflect on how difficult it can be for people who ‘look’ different, especially in our image-obsessed society.


Creative Dance

Last Thursday (7th December,) P6/7 continued to develop their creative dance sequences with Laura.  The pupils warmed up by playing a ‘triangles’ game.  Next they worked in pairs to develop their own dance sequence and then performed these for each other.  They finished by learning a set routine.  Our last workshop is tomorrow morning.  A big thank you to Laura from Eden Court!  🙂
