Primary 1A had a lovely last day of term doing lots of Easter Activities!

We were concentrating really hard this morning painting our own eggs to roll down the hill for Easter.

A huge well done to all of primary 1A for working extremely hard this term and being a joy every single day!

Have a lovely Easter and do lots of thing that make you smile!

P6 – Topic talks

P6 – Group Presentations

P6 have been preparing group presentations based on our topic ‘A Really Short History of Nearly Everything.’ They prepared fabulous resources and interactive activities for the class to participate in. Well done everyone!

P4/5 World Fair

Well done to primary 4/5 for a really lovely morning of work. The World Fair was very good, and we received  positive feedback from the classes who came along to see it.

The children displayed their research very effectively, and they did the signing well.

The children of all ages who visited us, were kept interested by the information, food, costumes and fun that the children had on show for them. Thank you to everyone who helped supply some of the fascinating objects and food for the children’s stalls.

It was a long day, but those fabulous children, kept their enthusiasm up, right to the bitter end! I’m super proud of them.

Myself, Anthony and Robert took a lot of pictures, so here they are!!!!

Very bright and colourful!

Have a lovely Easter break, and we’ll see you back on Tuesday 23rd April, ready for the final term, when we’ll be looking closely at the extraordinary life of Robert Owen and his father-in-law, David Dale. 

I feel a trip coming on……..!

P.S. Can you spot the difference between the original art work, and Robert and Anthony’s copy! They’ve got a future in art fraud I think!!!!



ELC Forest Session

We would like to thank all the parents who braved the rain and joined  us for a wee look at our Forest session, we hope you enjoyed it.

Over the past 5 weeks the children have explored Lochardil woods. We have gone on many Bear Hunts and we have also taken part  in building and cooking on the fire. The children have also explored ‘Lochardil Forest T.V’  where the children have sang songs such as ‘Shotgun by George Ezra’ and discussed their encounters with the “big black sausage bear” .

We would like to thank the children for the amazing adventures they have taken us on.

ELC – Easter Sing-a-Long


The children had so much fun performing their Easter songs to all of their favourite people this week !! 

We were so proud of each and every one of them for remembering the words and actions. We had lots of songs to learn !!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend. For those who were not able to be there, we have some videos to share with you.

Happy easter to all… we hope you enjoy your holidays !!

Trip to the Culduthel Christian Centre

A quick reminded that at 1:00pm tomorrow afternoon we will be walking from the school over to the Culduthel Christian Centre for our end of term Easter service.

We have some more rain forecast for tomorrow so please make sure that children come to school in appropriate footwear and with a waterproof jacket.

Parent helpers should report to reception just before 1:00pm – a big thank you to all those that have given up their time to accompany us on our trip tomorrow!

Please come to school with your best singing voices ready!

ELC – Easter Egg Hunt – POSTPONED


Due to the unexpected weather conditions, we have had to make the decision to postpone our Easter egg hunt.  As this was an outdoor event, we can no longer ensure everybody has fun like we had planned.

We will reschedule for Thursday 25th April.  Times will remain the same as stated originally. If you or your child can no longer attend, please let a member of staff know.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused. 

P 7 Fort George 2.4.19

We had an interesting visit to see some World War 2 artefacts at Fort George. We chose our favourite item from each case and explained why it was of interest to us. We liked the medals, the box from Hitler’s desk and seeing the helmet with the bullet holes in it.

Thank you to our parent helpers for supporting us.








ELC – Easter Egg Hunt


If you have not returned your slip for the Easter Egg Hunt this Thursday, please could you let us know if your child and an adult will be attending as soon as possible.  If your child usually attends on a Thursday anyway, please advise if a parent/carer will be coming in to join them. If your child does not usually attend and has been invited to either session, please let us know if they will be joining us as we have Easter treats to give out at the end ? and we would like to ensure they receive this even if they are not coming. It will also help to know if an adult is or is not attending when we are assigning children to staff.

Thank you.
