After working very hard on it all term, we decided to perform our Victorian play to the p1-4 class. The children did brilliantly, taking on 2 or 3 parts and changing roles last minute. I was a very proud teacher! Thank you for providing costumes and props. Hopefully we will be able to perform it for the parents at some point, but in the meantime hopefully these photos will provide a wee taste of what it was like.
Well done to Logan, Archie and Lola who took part in a dog race in the Borders at the weekend. They all came home with trophies and Blue Peter badges, and will be on TV in a few weeks. We are proud of you all.
Well done to our winter runners. They were running on Friday and did really well. We are proud of you all!
Thank you also to our parent helpers – we appreciate all you do.
As part of our world book day celebrations, we worked in small groups to create a book in a box. We used the TASC wheel to plan, design, create and evaluate our boxes. Don’t they look fabulous?
We had a brilliant world book day! The costumes were fantastic. A huge thank you to Torrin and Brodie’s mum, Daisy’s mum and Ella’s dad for making the hall look so good and planning such fun activities.
We enjoyed a taster session from CrossFit this morning. Well done to Rory and Scott for helping to organise and lead the session.
We are looking forward to having a CrossFit session tomorrow morning (Wed). Please make sure that all children have a PE kit.
Well done to Rory and Lily for coming first in their group at the Inverness Music Festival. We are very proud of you both!
We really enjoyed our visit from the SSPCA this morning. We learned all about the work of the SSPCA and the animals they work with before using programming to get our robot “cats” to move. We managed to get the robots to do lots of interesting things to show some of the emotions that farm cats feel.
Some of the facts we learned are:
A sheep can look behind it without turning its head. (Logan)
Seagulls can drink sea water. (Reilly)
Guinea pigs are still eaten in Peru. (Megan)
Hamsters can store their young in their mouths. (Conor)
A baby bat is called a pup. (Scott)
Sheep have 4 stomachs. (Liam R)Continue reading
We are going to be working on speedy recall of our times tables this term. We played a Snap style game with playing cards to challenge each other.
