Well done everyone! What a fantastic show the children put on today. They worked really hard to learn their lines and all the songs. Everyone was really impressed by their performances. Here are some behind the scenes photos.
The Primary 1s and Primary 2s were absolutely super during their Nativity performances over the last few days. All the children have worked really hard learning all the songs and their lines and we couldn’t be happier with all their fantastic performances!
A big thanks to all the family and friends who took the time to come and see the children perform, you were a super audience and we absolutely loved having you!
The countdown to Christmas is now officially on!
P1/2 have been learning about the Christian festive celebration of Christingle. Unfortunately we have not made the version that you can eat, but we enjoyed making our Christingles out of various art materials we found in school! We are going to continue our learning on Christingles and write about what we are thankful for in our lives, especially at this time of the year in the run up to advent.
I would like to say a massive thank you for all the lovely cards, flowers and and gifts that I have received on my return to work this week. I feel truly humble and grateful for all of the support and kindness I have received from parents and indeed your children! Lets now look forward to the excitement and wonderful learning opportunities that the remainder of this term brings!
Many thanks once again,
As you will be aware we have started rehearsals for the P1 and P2 Nativity. A letter has gone home with the performance dates and you should return the slip requesting tickets as soon as possible. The P1s are angels and the P2s are shepherds and we would very much appreciate your help with the costumes. A letter has gone home detailing the items to bring in to school though please note for some of the P2 pupils (the main characters ) the school is providing their costumes. The children know who need to bring in costumes.
A letter for those wishing to have Christmas Lunch has also been sent home and the slip should be completed and returned to the school.
A wee reminder that tomorrow morning P1A, P1B, P1/2, P2/3 and p3 will be visiting Vue cinema to see The Giant Pear.
We are really looking forward to a fun day at the cinema.
Just a reminder that it is also Children in Need tomorrow so the children are allowed to dress down for the day. Please remember to bring in your £1 donation for dressing down as well as extra pennies if you would like to donate to take part in any of the wonderful games that will be on offer.
See you all tomorrow!
Miss Munro 🙂
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. 🙂
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.
Here we all are at the end of our super day at Cromarty lighthouse! A huge thank you to all the staff at Cromarty Lighthouse and also to Mrs Fergusson, Mrs Roger, Mrs V from OOSC, Mrs Cuthbert and Mrs Kellacher for helping support us all on our fabulous trip!!
