P1 & ELC Enrolment for 2019

As some of you will be aware P1 enrolment will take place the week beginning Monday 28 January and for Early Learning and Childcare settings enrolment week commences Monday 25 February.  The usual adverts will appear next week in the local press for one week only.

Again this year all schools have been encouraged to direct parents to the Highland Council’s website where they can complete the enrolment process online for both Primary 1 and Early Learning and Childcare places, and also access the necessary pupil enrolment guidance information Рwww.highland.gov.uk/enrol.  Parents will still have the option to enrol their child in person, at their catchment school or early learning and childcare setting if they so wish.

ELC – Babies

The children’s current interest is about babies and how we can help to look after them.

‘You put them in the car seat so they don’t get hurt.¬† I was in a little car seat’ – Angus M

‘We look after them in the house and huggle them’ – Harrison

‘They can’t eat hard food because their teeth haven’t grown yet’ – Felix

‘Rocking the baby helps them go to sleep’ – Scott

‘My baby eats mashed up bananas’ – Jessica

P2 Art

In our art lessons we have been exploring what happens to colour when you add black or white. Inspired by Claude Monet’s  painting, the Water Lily Pond, the children used different shades and tones of green.

As part of our online safety we have been discussing situations where we have felt nervous and uncomfortable. We then used our Emotion Works cogs to come up with the different body sensations and behaviours.
