There are still a couple of children from primary 1A and 1B to return the last expressive arts learning pathway.
We ask if you could please have the learning pathway completed and returned to school by this coming Monday.
Miss Munro and Mrs McArthur.
Just a wee reminder that the Primary 1 Christmas Party will be this coming Wednesday in the afternoon.
Please remember to have your child bring the highlighted items of food detailed on the Christmas party letter that went home this week. If you could have the food in by Monday or Tuesday it would be very much appreciated.
The children are welcome to come to school dressed in their party outfit. However, if you would rather they can take a change of clothes in a bag to school and get changed in the classroom before hand or go home at lunch time to get ready at home. The choice is yours!
We are very much looking forward to it! 🙂
Miss Munro, Mrs McArthur and Mrs MacIver.
Last Friday we had our third visit to My World of Work. This session focused on renewable energy, in particular wind generated energy.
We were tasked in designing and building a wind turbine which work to generate energy.
We found this challenging but great fun!
A big well done to Sean who won not one but TWO trophies this week.
One was for winning a football competition and the other for being athlete of the month at running club HESA.
Today the Primary 7s attended a ceilidh at the Inverness Royal Academy. It was a great opportunity to mix with people from different schools (and our future classmates). We got to show off our Scottish Dancing skills and, of course, we had lots of fun!
It was great to get to have a quick peek at the school and everyone is now looking forward to the next transition event!
A big thank you to all who made it to our open afternoon this week. We loved doing Christmas crafts with you all and it was great to see you all getting involved (hopefully not too covered in glitter and PVA glue!). Thank you!
A big thank you to everyone who came along to our open afternoon! We hope you enjoyed listening to our singing and playing our dreidel game! Dreidels and a set of rules will be sent home tonight.
Mrs Reed will be leaving at the end of term to pursue her own goals. She was originally planning to retire at the end of the session however has brought the date forward and therefore her final day will be the last day of this term.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank Mrs Reed for her considerable contribution to our school as a whole and in particular to the ELC at Lochardil Primary. She has certainly contributed to giving our pupils a fabulous start to their educational journey with us and we will continue to draw on her passion and expertise for learning outdoors & yoga in the future.
We would like to wish Mrs Reed all the best for the future.
Thank you to our supportive audience today for our class performance of Horrid Herod. We enjoyed sharing this with you and for all your positive comments.
We were delighted to make our first delivery of old footwear to the Clarks Shoe shop. We have had a great response to the appeal and welcome more in the coming months. We are helping to give a quality education to children who do not have access to resources and teachers through UNICEF. We support Article 28: Every child has the right to an education.
Thank you to Aiden, Sean, Emily and Megan, (the Broom House Captains) who have been busy keeping the school going with their 5 Days of Christmas fun activities. Each class has made a bauble to hang up in the hall or dining room. They took photos of some staff and pupils wearing a Santa hat and beard. The pictures are on display for everyone to work out who is dressed up. They had a Hunt the Rudolph and dancing to Christmas music in the playground. Classes were able to choose a “Broom Bonus” (extra Golden time/playtime/lunchtime) and now we look forward to hearing the best Christmas joke from each class at assembly tomorrow. Lots of Christmas fun!
