We received cards with lovely messages from our partner school. With a little help from my friend Aimee, who is a secondary Modern Languages teacher, we translated them! The boys and girls were thrilled with their messages! We received a lovely Eiffel Tower keyring from Teddy! He brought a Nessie one with him to France at Christmas.
Teddy travels between the 2 countries too and he carries a USB in his backpack.
We are learning colours, simple greetings and number to 20 in French. Here are our letters ready to go. Teddy has video clips and photos from Burns Day to show this time.
Today we played a game called Who Am I? Each person was a book character. It was good fun trying to guess who we were!
Can you guess which book character everyone was today? There were some fabulous costumes!
Thank you so much to you all for the wonderful pictures, models etc you have made for the Viking class talks this week. I have heard 7 fabulous talks. Great job everyone! (There should be a wee feedback sheet in the schoolbags.)
We have been enjoying our topic on the Vikings this term. Here are a few photos of some of the amazing artwork we have done. You will be able to see all the work we have been doing on the Vikings at the open morning next week.
The Digital Dynamos pupil group would like to invite all parents/carers to their ‘Collaborating with Chromebooks’ Information Evening on Wednesday 27th March from 6-7pm in our school gym hall.

It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’. As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices. This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.
Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.
We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:
Today 3 rangers from Aigas Field Centre came to the school to do a workshop with us. We learned about where our food comes from, what decomposers do and the dangers of plastic in the seas and oceans. We played lots of games and had a lot of fun.
We are delighted to share that Lochardil has received the most number of tokens in the recent round of the TESCO Community Awards Bags for Life Scheme. Our Wise About Waste application should now be more achievable and we look forward to using the money (£4,000) effectively.
