Please find attached the Term 3 Overview for P6/7 – full information about our learning this term and includes lots of important dates for your diary!
This week we had our first Bible Alive session which focused on the first part of the Old Testament. We learnt about what Christians believe happened in the beginning and looked at stories such as Adam and Eve and Noah’s Ark. The best part was that some of us even got to dress up as some of the biblical characters (see below for Rowan’s interpretation of Noah!). We are looking forward to the next 6 weeks.
While the primary 6s were busy the primary 7s teamed up with the primary 5s from P5/6 to work on an enterprise project for Blythswood, who are raising money for the fire services. P5 and P7 were busy generating ideas for their venture and have come up with an excellent product to sell. Once we have signed up we will receive £25 from the charity to help us kick-start our business. We hope to raise as much money as possible in the 4 weeks we will have to run our business. Keep your eyes peeled for more information soon!
Meeting at IRA on January 24 2019 at 7 pm.
Letter being sent home with pupils today (9.1.19)
Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a great time with their loved ones over the festive break (and ate as much chocolate as I did!). We had a great first day back and are already getting stuck into the hard work.
Term 3 has arrived so quickly and it is already shaping up to be a busy one! The learning overview will be uploaded onto the blog at some point next week. In the meantime here are a few notices to keep you in the loop of what’s going on this week:
- Parent Interview letters went home in bags today and should be returned by this Friday (11th January) to allow us to try and arrange an appointment that suits you.
- Primary 7 parents please check bags as order forms for the much anticipated leaver’s hoodies went home today – these are due back in on Monday 14th January to ensure they will arrive in time for Loch Insh (or even sooner).
- Primary 6 pupils will be taking part in ‘Bible Alive’ for the next 7 weeks, starting this Thursday afternoon. An information leaflet will be going home tomorrow. If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
- Reminder that Rose Bowl projects are due in before the Easter holidays so work should be well underway. This term we will be looking at how to create features such as glossaries and bibliographies which are to be included in the projects.
- We also have our 4th session of My World of Work coming up next Thursday – thank you to all the parents who have managed to help out on our trips so far!
Primary 1A were so lucky today to have the Primary 7’s come and visit us to read their very own Christmas Stories. The Primary 7’s have been working so hard to write fantastic stories for today and the Primary 1’s absolutely loved them!
What a lovely way to round of the end of term!
Thanks again to all the Primary 7’s for your fabulous stories!
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!
Just a quick reminder, the children will be receiving their Christmas dinners in the dining hall for lunch tomorrow if they have ordered them and all children and staff are encouraged to wear their finest Christmas jumpers if they so wish! Please do not go out to buy a jumper especially for the occasion, it is the company and the wonderful atmosphere that we are all looking forward to tomorrow!
Many thanks, The Lochardil Team
P6/7 would like to invite you to our Open Afternoon on Thursday 13th December @ 2.00pm – 2.45pm.
This term we are focusing our Learning Conversations on Expressive Arts and have decided to hold a crafting session to tie in with this.
Come along to join us in with some Christmas crafts and to see some of your child’s work from this term!
We look forward to seeing you there.
In the lead up to Remembrance Sunday, and as part of our art for our World War One topic, P6/7 have been busy making poppies to be included in our whole school display.
As we are an ECO friendly school we chose to use recycled plastic bottles to create our poppies. Once we had carefully cut out our desired poppy shapes we used acrylic paint and sharpie to create our realistic looking flowers. We think they are really eye-catching and will be a great addition to the display.
When we tweeted our pictures we even got a retweeted from Poppy Scotland!
