P3 Open Afternoon

A big thank you to everyone who came along to our open afternoon! We hope you enjoyed listening to our singing and playing our dreidel game! Dreidels and a set of rules will be sent home tonight.

ELC – Staffing Update

Mrs Reed will be leaving at the end of term to pursue her own goals. She was originally planning to retire at the end of the session however has brought the date forward and therefore her final day will be the last day of this term. 

We would like to take the opportunity to thank Mrs Reed for her considerable contribution to our school as a whole and in particular to the ELC at Lochardil Primary. She has certainly contributed to giving our pupils a fabulous start to their educational journey with us and we will continue to draw on her passion and expertise for learning outdoors & yoga in the future.

We would like to wish Mrs Reed all the best for the future.

Many Thanks

ELC Team

Broom’s 5 Days of Christmas

Thank you to Aiden, Sean, Emily and Megan, (the Broom House Captains) who have been busy keeping the school going with their 5 Days of Christmas fun activities. Each class has made a bauble to hang up in the hall or dining room. They took photos of some staff and pupils wearing a Santa hat and beard. The pictures are on display for everyone to work out who is dressed up. They had a Hunt the Rudolph and dancing to Christmas music in the playground. Classes were able  to choose a “Broom Bonus” (extra Golden time/playtime/lunchtime) and now we look forward to hearing the best Christmas joke from each class at assembly tomorrow. Lots of Christmas fun!

P1A Writing

Yesterday P1A were reflecting on their Nativity performance by writing about what made them feel proud.  Answers included – “when the Mums and Dads were clapping”, “when I was singing” and “when I was doing all the actions to the songs”.  We were all very proud of their amazing performance too.
