P1 & ELC Enrolment for 2019

As some of you will be aware P1 enrolment will take place the week beginning Monday 28 January and for Early Learning and Childcare settings enrolment week commences Monday 25 February.  The usual adverts will appear next week in the local press for one week only.

Again this year all schools have been encouraged to direct parents to the Highland Council’s website where they can complete the enrolment process online for both Primary 1 and Early Learning and Childcare places, and also access the necessary pupil enrolment guidance information –  Parents will still have the option to enrol their child in person, at their catchment school or early learning and childcare setting if they so wish.

Primary 1B- topic work

We  started our Inverness and Loch Ness topic by  finding out where Inverness is on a map of Scotland. We enjoyed looking at the atlas and then we looked at a large scale map of Inverness and managed to point out various Inverness landmarks including The Kessock Bridge, The River Ness, Loch Ness, The Caledonian Canal, Lochardil School and Raigmore Hospital

P5 News

We have been doing drawings on dotted paper to make 3D shapes.  Here are the shapes we were trying to use and here are some photos.

We have also been doing our writing which was a bit different because we had to lay it out like this.

We have also been doing a game called the racetrack game for maths .

How to play the racetrack game. The teacher will go on Dojos, she will press random and whoever it is will go up at the front.  The person will choose a times table to do.  The teacher will press go on a timer, they will go round the racetrack and the person will answer the questions as they go along.

We have started a new topic which is

UNCRC Banners 9.1.19

We are delighted to display our new UNCRC banners on the boundary fence today. We asked the previous UNIKIDS team from 2017-18 to think of the rights that they most associate with coming to Lochardil. We picked 10 to display. Each class made a picture to match the article/right and we have now put them all together for display. The process has taken a while to come together but we are very pleased with the end result. Thank you  to Al and the team at the Sign Centre for their creativity and support. This is part of our  approach  to  share our Rights Respecting Schools work with the wider community.
