Easter Egg Decorating Competition

Wednesday 28th March 2018

Each year we ask the children to decorate a hard-boiled egg in class.  These are then judged and a winner and runner up from each year group receive an Easter egg at our awards ceremony.

Children are asked to bring in an undecorated hard-boiled egg.  They can also bring in egg cups/holders and extra art materials if they wish.

The school will provide glue, paint, and various art resources so that everyone can create something in the time given.

(Polystyrene eggs can be provided for anyone who requires an alternative.)

A pdf version of these details is below:

We look forward to seeing this year’s eggcellent creations!


Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up.  🙂

Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge

Highland Numeracy Blog


The Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge has been designed in partnership with the Scottish Mathematical Council and is aimed at Primary 6 pupils for the Easter Holidays.

“It’s very much hoped that this will be a fun activity to promote maths outwith the classroom and ideally something that families can do together over the Easter holidays.  The initiative is a feature of the Making Maths Count approach to making Scotland a maths-positive nation, and of the Scottish Government’s commitment to promoting parental engagement in learning.”

Follow these links for more information:

Easter Maths Challenge


Packs of the resources will be issued to schools for Primary 6 pupils this week. A few additional have been included and they hope that teachers might identify p5 and/or p7 families who would also engage with it.

Workings and solutions will be available here – www.blogs.gov.scot/making-maths-count/ –…

Next week, P6/7 will need to bring their PE kits on MONDAY and an extra bag on WEDNESDAY.

Indoor shoes, PE kits, water bottles and pencil cases will go home with pupil on Wednesday, so an additional bag would be very handy, especially for people with smaller school bags!

Pupil Profiles should be handed in to Miss Mullin on Monday please!

Thank you!

Creative collection

As part of science week, P4-7 pupils were challenged to reuse a plastic drinks bottle as something useful or beautiful, and bring it in to show their classes today.  P6/7 were very impressed by their classmates’ creativity – no two pupils came up with the same idea!  P6/7’s creations included an egg separator, a fairy house lamp, a pineapple decoration, a puppet (Gerald!) a gift box and jewellery.  Some pupils just needed a bit more time and will show us their handiwork on Monday.  Needless to day, I am hugely impressed!

Brilliant Buddies

This morning P6/7 had their final sharetime with their P1/2 buddies for this term.  Next term there will be a re-shuffle, so that the younger pupils can get to know more of our older pupils (and vice versa!)

As usual, there were smiles all round.  Well done to P6/7 – Mr Macleod and Miss Mullin are very proud of you all.  You have shown great empathy and friendship towards our younger pupils.

Two minute challenge!

On Thursday afternoon we measured out a 10m track.  We used a trundle wheel first and then double checked it with a metre stick.

Pupils used the track to measure how many metres they could run in two minutes.  We kept a note of the distances that each pupil managed in the time.

This morning, we used this information to work out speed, distance and time calculations (in metres per second or m/s.)  Some people even had a go at working out the speeds in metres per hour – but we decided that this wasn’t as useful a measure for this task!

Enterprising Maths Challenge

On Wednesday (21st March) three of our P6/7 pupils spent the day flexing their mathematical muscles at the enterprising maths challenge in Dingwall.  They took part in a range of activities and games, including making a poster about the mathematics of bicycles.  Here are a few snaps from the day – huge thanks to Mrs Russell for supervising, encouraging, photographing and marking on the day!
