School Trip-Glachbeg

We had a beautiful day for our school trip and the children thoroughly enjoyed the outing.We made bread from wheat which we had ground into flour. It was hard work but the children persevered and we had a piece at the end of the day with butter we had made too. The children loved the contact with all the animals and learned all about food chains and the sources of our food. Mr Bull and his team were excellent and we forgave them when they turned on the watering system in the polytunnel, when we were in still in it, as a practical joke. Here are some of our photos.

DSCF1077DSCF1071 Primary 3 – The VikingsPrimary three have been learning to sew. We decided to learn this skill as we found out that the Vikings had to sew to make their own clothes either to wear or to trade for other goods. We wanted to make a bookmark and we designed our own stitches. Some of us did plain running stitch in different colours and others tried fancy designs.  We all decided on three colours.“I really liked learning to do different skills in sewing” – Hannah“I enjoyed doing something different in school” – Ryan“I thought the sewing was fun” – MaxDSCF1069

P3 Party

The Christmas Party is on Friday 18th December at 9.30 to 11.30 am. Children should come to school at the usual time. They can come to school in their party clothes but should take a change of clothing with them as they will be outside at lunchtime. We would be grateful for donations of food and I have highlighted a suggestion on the letter.

Many thanks

Mrs Sutherland

Indoor Shoes

Please could you have indoor gym shoes for your child in the classroom every day. With the stormy weather and muddy fields our carpets are getting mucky  and not very nice to sit on.

Many thanks

Josh and Charlotte

Community Police Officer Visit

Today P3 had a visit from the community police officer. PC Morrison showed the pupils her police equipment and let them try on her protective vest. It was very heavy. Did you know that only some police officers are allowed to carry guns and that they have never had to use them in Inverness.Also, PC Morrison told the pupils how important it is never to go with strangers and to tell parents where they are when they go out to play.
