Day 3 – Morrison Construction

Another busy afternoon today for P6! We had a fantastic afternoon constructing buildings from cocktail sticks and mini gummies, making a house from lego (using only photos!!!)  and spotting the skills from a construction site!   It was a super learning experience for all the children.

The children developed their understanding of what makes a good building – looking at different types of 3D shapes and their effectiveness.

They were able to use photographs as a plan in order to construct their house – This was extremely tricky and ONLY 1 group succeeded.  In this task they developed their communication skills and learned the importance of following instructions and good team work.

Finally the children learned all about different jobs that Morrison have to offer.  We even shared some experiences of having joiners, electricians and surveyors in our own houses.


Day 2 – Tesco, Ness Side, Inverness

WOW! What a busy afternoon we have had today with Tesco.  This afternoon the P5/6,P6/7 and P7 rotated around 4 different workshops in order to experience life as a Tesco employee.  Not only did they get to eat pancakes and doughnuts but they found out about the variety of skills required within 4 areas of the store.

A massive THANK YOU to all the employees from Tescos that came along and hosted a workshop.  The children had a fantastic afternoon learning about stock control, Point of Sales, ingredients and allergies within foods as well as how to offer good customer service at the checkouts and how Tesco help to support a variety of different charities in our local area.

Skills for Work Day 1 – Wills Bros Civil Engineering LTD

A massive thank you to Mr Johnston who came out to Lochardil primary school this afternoon to chat to P5/6,P6/7 and P7 about Wills Bros in particular about his role within the company.

Mr Johnston also conducted a health and safety chat for the children as his company have been appointed the role of main contractor on the Inverness West link project. The programme of works encompasses construction from Holm Roundabout to A82 Glenurquhart road and comprising approx. 2.2km of 7.3m wide single carriageway road, 4 roundabouts, a new three span bridge over the River Ness and 2 underpasses.

Whilst Mr Johnston was with us the children were able to ask an extensive range of questions in relation to the skills required to fulfil his job. We learned that a variety of different skills were required including

  • Team Work

  • Problem Solving

  • Good Communication

  • Sequencing

  • Risk Management

  • Organisational Skills

  • Variety of mathematical skills including measurement and angles.

It was a very interesting afternoon and we enjoyed hearing all about Mr Johnston’s career and some of the amazing buildings/ developments he has been part of. A massive thank you again to Wills Bros and Mr Johnston for supporting Lochardil during this event!

 Work Experience Week P5/6,P6/7 and P7

Next week sees the start of our partnership with local business.  Over the course of the week various businesses will be popping in and carrying out various activities with the children in relation to the skills required for work.  The children already have a good understanding of why and what they are learning in school and therefore, this provides a fantastic opportunity for them to see these skills in a real life work context.

As part of this we are asking all the children to complete a short quiz which is not only fun, but looks at what their special qualities are and then suggests an animal that they may be.   On the right hand side this relates to various different jobs that support those characteristics.   It’s great fun and will be used as a discussion focus next week.

Writing Theme this week!


This week we are writing an Estate Agent review of a house.  We have spent some time looking at Estate Agent chat and how somethines things are not quite as they seem.  For Wednesday we have asked the children to look at something in their homes that may need improving and put it in a possitive slant.  Some common word might include ‘cosy’ meaning no room at all or ‘rustic’ made from sticks and stones.

    The revenge of the gods

    It was after Zeus,Posieden and Hades were barfed out and they needed to hatch a revenge to kill Kronos titan of time.Rhea their mother told them to go to Tarturus to have their brothers the Elder Cyclops’s to forge them a weapon to kill their father but Kampe the demon was watching them but Brontes their brother tossed Zeus a lightning bolt sparking wildly. Poseiden caught a 3 pointed spear or a trident that if he focused whirlwinds flew around the points and he turn himself into water. Hades caught what he thought that was a useless helmet but little did he know that this was the helm of shadows and the blades of pain. Now that they had weapons they could kill Kronos and rule the cosmos so up to Mount Orthynis they went . After they sneaked into the fortress they fought past their uncles to get to their papa they finally killed him and they buried him in Tarturus as for Kronos’s general Hyperion he was punished him to hold up the sky or his grandfather squashing him as for the Bros they divided the land the sky the sea and the underworld Zeus got the sky Poseiden got he sea and Hades got the underworld and all were happy ( except Hades he wanted the sky)

    King Minos loved his village and had everything he ever needed . he occasionally when he was bored sent battleship’s and soldiers to attack the village of Athens . The king of Athens did not know what to do about this problem because he had no men ready and trained for battle . The king of Athens then decided to make a deal with King Minos . It was that Athens would send 7 boys and 7 girls to your island. so his monster the minotaur could eat them. So King Minos accepted his offer. The King of Athens son Theseus knew how important it was to keep your word. However he didn’t like the thought that that some of the kids from the village were dying. So he said to his dad that he would go as the 7th child and kill the minotaur. So against his fathers pleading he went on with the children. when they arrived King Minos and his daughter the Princess of the kingdom greeted them. That night the princess wrote a note to prince Theseus saying I will help you kill the monster if you get me of this small island. So the prince accepted and they met up the next say and talked over it. That very day he killed the minotaur and all the children and the princess escaped. They stopped for supplies at another island but the princess was so bored she fell asleep. Everyone crowded around her because of her beauty. So the prince and the children sailed away happily leaving the princess behind .

    Demeter and Peresphone

    Peresphone was Demeters daughter. One day Hades captured Peresphone. Demeter was sick with worry and she asked Helios where she was. She found out that Hades had captured her daughter and got angry. For a year she caused all the crops and plants to die. Zeus commanded Hades to release Peresphone. He tricked her into eating some pomegranate seeds from the underworld and knew that this would mean that she would have to return every year. Demeter was delighted about her daughters return but every time she had to return to Hades she mourned again. This is why every year plants and crops stop growing and when Peresphone returns to Earth the land grows again.

    Perseus and Medusa
    This Greek myth is set on the island of Argos and the main character is called Perseus. Perceus and his mother went to Argos to find a home but soon they found out that there not welcome by King Polydectes. So the King sends Perseus on a dangerous mission to capture the head of the Gorgon Medusa. He also gets gifts from Hermes to help him on his mission: winged sandals, a helmet of invisibility, and a sword. The goddess Athena gives him a shiny shield for reflecting the Medusa’s gaze because if you look at her you will turn to stone. He completes his mission and he also rescues Andromeda from a sea-monster. Perseus shows King Polydectes the head of Medusa but his keeps his own eyes shut so when the King turns to stone he stays safe. A few years later he falls in love with Andromeda. King Polydectes’s brother becomes King and Perceus and Andromeda soon get married. But Perceus accidentally kills his grandfather with a discus during some games.

    Echo and Narcissus

    The nymph Echo is punished by the goddess Hera for misusing her gift of speech, so that she can only echo the voices of others. She falls in love with Narcissus who rejects her and instead falls in love with his own reflection in a pool and drowns trying to reach it.

  51. Lucia

    Perseus was a famous Greek hero. Like Hercules, he was part god and part man. Like Hercules, his father was the mighty Zeus, king of all the gods. His mother was a princess. She lived in Argos.
    Perseus was famous for many things. But he is probably remembered best for killing the horrible Medusa, the Gorgon who could turn men into stones, and whose hair was made of live hissing snakes.

  52. max mo

    zeus was the first of the gods and was a very imposing figure.Often referred to as the fathers of the gods and men.He is a sky god who controls lightning and thunder.

By now he did not want this power anymore so he went back to the God and asked for his power to be taken away thank god said he could but you have to wash in a special river and then all the power and everything you have touched that had turned to gold which go back to normal that is the story of King Midas

  54. Ellen

    Goddess Minerva was jealous because Neptune fell in love with Medusa so she turned her into a gorgon. She was banished to a cave on an island. Anyone who saw her turned to stone. So Perseus (son of Jupiter) was sent to slay her. The Gods gave him winged shoes and a shield. He used the mirror to see her so he didn’t turn to stone. He slayed her but her dead reflection was so lifelike that he covered it with his cloak. He flew back to the Gods. On his way home he spotted princess Andromeda tied to a rock. She said she had been put there as a sacrifice to save her people. So Perseus went to he parents and asked if he slayed the beast, could he have Andromeda’s hand in marriage. They agreed. So he slayed the beast and married her. THE END

  55. CORA : )

    Echo was a wood nymph, she was told by queen Hera to find Zeus but instead started to chat too much. Hera got angry and cursed Echo! She could not talk she could only repeat what some body else had said to her. She was so sad she went and hid in the forest. There stood a handsome boy called Narcissus and Echo instantly fell in love. Narcissus said “who’s there?” Echo replied “who’s there?” Narcissus got angry and said “go away!” Echo repeated sadly “go away!” She was so sad she went to the mountains and slowly turned to stone. The Gods were very angry with Narcissus so they cursed him by taking him to a lake and tricked him into falling in love with his own reflection. He jumped in to the lake and was never seen again. When you go to a cave or the mountains you can still here Echo copying what you say.

    Theseus and the Minotaur

    Once upon a time, there lived a king called Minos.He lived on the island of Crete. Sometimes king Minos would send his navy to attack the tiny village of Athens. The king of Athens didn’t know what to do so he made a deal with king Minos to send 7 boys and 7 girls every nine years to Crete to be eaten by the dreaded monster,the Minotaur, king Minos kept in a maze. Prince Theseus ,the son of the king of Athens, had had enough with all these children dying so he decided to be the 7th boy. Theseus went to Crete and killed the Minotaur. He was helped in this task by princess Ariadne and in turn Theseus takes her away to the island of Naxos so everyone can see her beauty. Finally Theseus returns to Athens with the children.


  57. Elysia

    APOLLO (uh-POL-oh; Roman name Apollo) was the god of prophesy, music and healing.
    As god of music, Apollo is often depicted playing the lyre. He did not invent this instrument, however, but was given it by Hermes in compensation for cattle theft. Some say that Apollo did invent the lute, although he was best known for his skill on the lyre. He won several musical contests by playing this instrument.

  58. Emily *

    A man with a head of a bull. Held captive by kind Minos in a Labyrinth. The Mintoraur had to be given human sacrifices to eat. He was eventually killed by Theseus with his father Aegeus’s sword. When he returned home he forgot to show a white sail. His father thought Theseus was dead and drowned himself. The Aegean sea is named after him.

    Pegasus was a flying horse in Greek mythology, usually white coloured. His father was Poseidon and his mother was the Gorgon Medusa. He was born with his brother Chrysaor when Medusa had her head cut off by Perseus. Pegasus was captured and tamed by the Greek hero Bellerophon. Later, Bellerophon rode Pegasus to Mount Olympus, but Zeus pushed him off on the way. Pegasus carried on and reached Mount Olympus.

    Acrisius, King of Argos, is told by an oracle that he will be killed by his grandson.So he locks his daughter Danae in a tower. Then Zeus transforms into a shower of gold in order to enter the tower and have his way with an unsuspecting Danae. She bears him a son called Perseus.

  77. Emily

    It’s always best to use a nickname when you are using gaming sites, rather than give out your real name. Some people who you meet online may not be who they say they are, so remember not to give people you meet on the gaming sites information about yourself.

  78. Daisy

    It’s always best to use a nick name rather than your real name do not give out enemy information about your self.

  89. Julia Ferguson

    Never reply to a spam text message (a spam message is text sent to lots of people by a company) or a text message from someone you don’t know.

  90. sam irving

    When you log onto a chat room always use a nickname rather than giving your real name .Nicknames are a fun way to hide your identity online but it is not good to pretend to be someone else.

  91. daisy

    I’ve learnt that it’s always best to use a nickname rather than your real name and do not give out eney information about yourself

    A way to help is to only be chatting to people who are at your school or a friend . And always log of what ever you are playing on . And keep your password to your self .

  93. Emily

    Some people may get nasty when playing online games as they want to win. Make sure that when you play online games, you don’t upset anyone in order to win or get to the next level. Also remember not to do anything that you know is wrong to get cheats or tips.

    Hi guys how u getting on ? i’m getting on fine at my new school. Hope your all OK and working hard. Hope to see soon

  119. Eva W

    NO! It’s just too dangerous.Even if one nuclear reactor blows up the whole of the uk will be covered in radiation for thousand of years and the whole of the uk will be to dangerous to live in! If we had lots of nuclear power stations all over the uk to make up our main power source then there’s an even bigger chance of that happening.

  120. Ellen

    No, because the toxic waste is very hard to get rid of. It takes years and years. Also, if there is an accident the air would be filled with radioactivity and this could kill thousands and thousands of people.

  121. Ewan

    I think that nuclear energy should not be our main source of energy because it costs £24.6 billion !!!!!!!! And think what would happen happen if it blew up the land destroyed and people killed and it sends loads of bad gas into the atmosphere. ?

  122. Stephen

    I think yes because it does not relay on fossil fuels, which produce green house gas like carbon dioxide co2. Stephen

  123. Emily

    I have really enjoyed discussing about nuclear energy and i think it has taught me a lot about nuclear energy
