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. 🙂

P1/2 Keeping Fit

5/10/18   P.E Photos

Today we went round 4 stations at P.E and worked hard at each one. We hopped, ran, did star jumps and ran small steps, finishing off with a new game called Waspital! 

 

P1/2 Cromarty Lighthouse Trip

The weather was indeed kind to us today as we were expecting so much rain and unbelievably it stayed dry for our trip!  P1/2 had a super day out.  We started off at the beach where we did a scavenger hunt and found lots of fantastic shells, crabs,  crab limbs and fancy stones that we liked so much we wanted to share with our families at home!

After the beach, we made our way up to the lighthouse.  We split into four different groups as we were only allowed to have a small number of pupils up inside the lighthouse at one time!  Inside the lighthouse, we learned about all the conservation work being done for the Northern Fulmar birds in Orkney.  We also learned that there were two voice pipes inside the lighthouse so that the lighthouse keeper could speak to the people living in the cottages below!  We learned that the lighthouse was lit using a diesel type fuel and the lighthouse keeper had to keep it lit by using small vents all around the inside wall of the lighthouse.

The other three activities involved us learning about what the scientists at Cromarty get up to when looking after the Dolphins in the area.  We were shown a seal jaw bone and a dolphin jaw bone.  We had a harbour hunt outside to see how many things we could name in the harbour.  The last activity, we were given clues to identify what animal sound we were hearing.

P2 & P1/2 – Class Trip to Cromarty Lighthouse , Wednesday 26th September 2018

Just a reminder that all P2 and P1/2 pupils will be going on their first class trip of the session to Cromarty Lighthouse as this links in perfectly with their seaside topics this term.  It would be appreciated for all children to come with a snack and packed lunch and be dressed in appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear, as we will be spending some time on the beach as well as in the lighthouse itself.  Lets hope the sun will come out for our visit and we have a wonderful day with fantastic learning experiences to share when we return back home!

 

P1 Open Evening for Parents – Tuesday 2nd October 2018

All P1 parents/carers are welcome to attend an open evening on Tuesday 2nd October, from 6.30-7.30pm at the school.  During this Open Evening, we would like to share what the P1 pupils get up to in class with regards to literacy.  A variety of  active literacy resources will be available to peruse, and play with if you wish, as well as information on what staff use to help support our P1 pupils and what parents/carers can be doing to help support their child at home.

It would be most helpful if parents could write a small note stating that they wish to attend the open evening in their child’s red reading record books/diaries, so that the class teachers can have an insight as to how many people may be coming.

P1/2 Phonics Fun!

P1 have been working hard on their phonics this week.  One of our new sounds was ‘g’ for ghost!   A lot of spooky sounds could be heard from our classroom when the ghosts were finished!  P1 were also playing games with their sounds at the end of week, to check they could remember them all.  P2 have also been working hard on the ‘ck’ sound.  Here they are playing a dice game using lots of different 4 letter words that contain the ‘ck’ sound.

P1/2 – Sea Shells, Sea Shells on the Sea Shore!

P1/2 were busy this afternoon learning all about shells.  They had big questions that they wanted to find the answer to:-

What are the names for some shells?

How are shells made?

How do you hear the sea inside a shell?

Why don’t you ask us at home what the answers are!!

Then we made whelk shells and created lots of different textures using a black fine tip pen using lots of different patterns.  They look fabulous!
