Forest Sessions Week 6

Thank you to all the parents who came along to our last forest session in this block. We hope you enjoyed seeing what we get up to every week and the benefits of Outdoor Education.

The children made bird feeders back at nursery to take to the forest. We went on a walk around the forest and hung them up high for the birds to feed. Keep your eyes peeled for them if you are out for a walk in the forest. 🙂

P3 Museum Trip

P3 learned lots of interesting things on our trip to the museum! We looked at different Viking artefacts and made our own Viking runes!

World Thinking Day 2019

World Thinking Day is celebrated on the birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout and Guide Movement. It is a day for all Guides and Scouts to think of each other and to celebrate being part of an international movement. World Thinking Day remains one of the most important dates in the guiding calendar, and every year the theme of the event encourages members to think about the big issues affecting them and their global community. This year the theme is leadership.

On February 22nd, we would like to encourage all children involved in Guide and Scout organisations to wear their uniform to celebrate this special day.

Last week – P1a star of the week!

A big well done to Primary 1As star of the week for last week – Struan!

Struan has been working really hard in his maths where we have been learning about time. Struan confidence in being able to tell the time using a clock has been great and he is even able to identify the time when it is half past.

Keep up the good work Struan ! 🙂

P5 and P6 Pupils – Scottish Opera

Just to let you know we have been able accommodate all requested tickets that have been previous asked for, for our performance tomorrow . At this point we are expecting a full house so will not be able to accommodate any further ticket requests. We will not be handing out paper tickets so please just come along  for a prompt start at 2:15pm and enjoy the performance . If children have been given permission, they will be able to be dismissed from the CCC. If we have not received permission, children will return to school for around 3:15.

Bikeability Training – Your school needs you!

Bikeability is the road safety training pupils in our P6 classes receive each year.   Through the one day Cycle Training Assistance (CTA) course, Cycling Scotland train volunteer parents/carers to deliver the training to pupils.

We are fortunate to currently have 2 volunteers who carry out this training with pupils, but as their children move on to secondary school this year, we lose their services.

We are now looking for new faces to step in to the breach to deliver this vital training to our pupils!  (Your child does not need to be in P6 for you to volunteer!).  Once CTA training is complete, the course is normally delivered to the pupils over a few weeks during school hours.

Provisional dates for volunteers to receive the one day training in the Highland area are week commencing 25th March or 1st April 2019.

If this is something you could help with, please contact the school office AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, so we can arrange for you to attend training.

Please help keep our children safe on the roads.

Thank you.


As a school, we have purchased an Apple Tree and aim to create a stone circle/pathway with the tree at the centre in memory of Mrs Martin-Hodgson, to celebrate her life, and what she meant to us as a teacher and valued colleague here at Lochardil Primary School.  

We therefore kindly ask for each child in school to paint a stone with a nature theme on it and to bring their creations into school.  The stone should aim to be fist sized or slightly bigger, and fairly flat.  Could all pupils please bring in their nature themed painted stones in for varnishing by Friday 8th March.

Thank you so much in advance for your support.

The Lochardil Team.
