If the weather is horrible and we can’t get outside to do PE we do yoga in the classroom. We follow the yoga programme on the smartboard, the presenter tells a story and there are yoga positions to do along with the story.
We have been learning about some of the wild animals that live in the Lochardil area we made foxes, rabbits and hedgehogs from paper plates. I hope you agree they are very cute!
Yesterday we had a visit from Simon who works for the SSPCA, he helps wild animals in and around the Inverness area.He told us lots of interesting facts about his job and how he helps to rescue sick and injured wild animals. He said we could help by feeding the birds and making sure that we put all our waste in the bin so no animals can get hurt by our rubbish! He also left us each a pencil sharpener which was very kind, thank you Simon.
We welcome Sarah-Louise Mackintosh to our class for 4 weeks. She will be taking the class for various activities closely supervised by myself and Mrs MacLelland. The class have enjoyed the lessons she has done with them so far and are looking forward to more exciting activities.
