Could all P5 and P6 pupils please bring a morning snack and drink with them to school on Wednesday of this week. We have our first Scottish Opera workshop in which representatives from Scottish Opera are coming to prepare us for our performance. The workshop will run from 10:00 – 11:30 which means that snack from the canteen will not be available on this day.
Due to the adverse weather conditions today, cross country practice after school has been cancelled.
This week I’m going to give a little insight into some of the maths we have been doing.
Last week we were looking at money. I gave them a budget of £50 and they had to find three items from a catalogue, that were as close to the budget as they could get….but not a penny more. The winners were the pair who got the closest to £50.
Robbie and Jay were victorious! They got dead on £50. Everyone else had difficulty with the prices ending in 99p!
This week we have been looking at fractions – you’ll probably have guessed that from the homework – both spelling and maths! We’ve been working on equivalence, and next week we’ll be working out fractions of an amount. Primary 5 will be looking at percentages too, and working out the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages.
In french we were using the words we have learnt so far such as classroom objects, colours, prepositions and instructions – to make up little commands, such as ‘put the yellow pencil under the red table’ etc.
It was a very strange lesson, and I’m glad Mrs Kellacher didn’t walk in when Cameron was put in the bucket by Max, and Siyana was put in the sink by Julia….with a little help!
Thank you for coming along to the Parent/Teacher interviews. Remember, you don’t have to wait for these, you are welcome to come and see me any time if you have any concerns at all. No matter how trivial they may seem, they can sometimes mean a lot to a child.
PLEASE DISCUSS WITH YOUR CHILDREN THE IMPORTANCE OF WINTER SAFETY.
WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL REPORTS THAT CHILDREN ARE PLAYING AT MACDONALD PARK ON AN ICE POND BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL.
Due to adverse weather conditions, netball will be cancelled this week.
Lots of fun in the snow this weeks!!
We had lots of fun in the forest this week. We found lots of new dens in the forest to explore. Then we made a fire and cooked pizza some Pizza.
. Innes said “They were very nice”
On Monday evening the Netball Club visited Gordonstoun School for a friendly Netball Tournament. We had a lot of fun, and the long drive was definitely worth it.
A HUGE thanks to all our parents who helped in so many ways to make it happen. The children were punctual and fed, as well as picked up on time by all. The drivers were amazing, giving up their time, and showing so much enthusiasm. It was super to have the court-side support and we were over the moon to be able to transport every child in the club, who wished to come. 4 teams!!!
Thank you once again,
Mrs A and Mrs P
(and our wonderful 3rd year helpers Abi and Louisa!)
Calling all Parents & Carers
The Parent Council bank balance is running low so it is time to pull together for some fundraising activities. The money raised is used to help fund projects at the school. For example, equipment, trips and outings, playground painting, sports kit, the year seven yearbook and much much more.
Please join us for a relaxed, informal and sociable meeting at the Lochardil House Hotel, at 8pm on Tuesday 5th February to discuss ideas and make plans. We will be brainstorming ideas for the forthcoming Spring Fayre (date to be confirmed, but likely the Saturday 30th March) as well a future events.
You do not need to attend the Parent Council Meetings in order to be involved in this fundraising subgroup. All help would be gratefully appreciated.
The Parent Council
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.
A big thank you to everyone who supported us.
