Instigate Positivity P5/6

Today we were talking about anti bullying week. Some children identified that a lot of people get bullied for the way they look, features and differences they have. We discussed how we are all unique and spread some positivity by sharing what we like about our bodies. Can you guess what everyone likes about themselves ? Some comments included: 

“I like my big brain because it helps me be smart “ 

“I like my feet because they help me play sports” 

“I like my eyes because they are different colours.”

“I like my heart because it’s kind and gives me life.”

P2 Wednesday 14th

What a busy day we had today! Here are the pupils working hard at their creations this afternoon.

We listened to our songs for the nativity and decided who would like to stand up before the audience and speak. Parts are not finalised yet and as some children will have quite a lot to say I think we may have to give out more speaking roles!

ELC – Forest School (Week2)

Today Miss McNeil toasted some scones on the fire for the children, which most of them thoroughly enjoyed with some butter and jam! We went exploring through the woods to a fallen tree where the boys and girls regularly like to climb up and slide back down the muddy hill. Lexie demonstrated excellent balancing skills! At the end of the session, we played near the entrance to the woods and Shona managed to climb up a tree independently!

Friday 16th of November Cinema Trips and Dress Down Day

Good Morning!

We have had a lot of parents asking across p1A, P1B, P1/2, P2/3 and P3 regarding what the children should be wearing on the cinema trip this Friday.

As it is Children in  Need this Friday the school is having a dress down day to support the charity – where you will bring £1 to school as a donation.

We are happy for the children who are attending the cinema in the morning to also show their support for Children in Need by dressing down. The children will be wearing their high vis vests over their clothes for the trip so there is no need for them to also have a Lochardil jumper.

Please come dressed down on Friday with your £1 donation! We are very much looking forward to our cinema trip. 🙂

P5/6 Sum Dog Success

Mrs Kellacher received a letter from Sum Dog today to congratulate our school on taking part in the Sum Dog maths week challenge ,before the holidays, with Lochardil pupils answering more than 5000 questions with an average accuracy of over 85%.
We are very proud to announce that P5/6 were the class with the highest score in our school. Keep up the good work!

P2 Maths Homework

This week, we are sending home the Sumdog login details for you to access Sumdog at home. Your homework is to play a little Sumdog at home. The letter  with the login details is in the maths homework jotters and will be sent home on Tuesday.

Primary 1A Forest School.

In order to make sure that the Primary 1’s are ready to leave for forest school as soon as possible on Tuesday, we would ask that your child is at school and lined up for the first bell at 10 to 9. The children will come into the classroom slightly earlier than usual so we can make sure that we are ready to go for forest school.

Many Thanks!

Miss M 🙂
