Enjoy-A-Ball – P1B

Some pictures from our Enjoy-A-Ball session in school this week.

open morning in P1B

Thank you to all the parents/carers who attended our open morning yesterday. It was lovely to see you all and I know the children were so proud of all their work and really enjoyed showing it to the ‘grown ups’! Thank you for your continued support.

Friday, Sept. 6th in P1B

Just wanted to share with parents/carers that I will be out of school tomorrow and the class will be covered by Mrs. Farqhuar. Also, Show and Tell will be for the Busy Bees and Clever Caterpillars this week and The Fabulous Frogs and Brilliant Butterflies will have their turn next week.

Thank you and have a super weekend when it arrives!

Thank you

A HUGE thank you to all the parents/carers of P1A and P1B for all the lovely gifts we have received. We have thoroughly enjoyed our year with your children and wish them all the best for Primary 2.

Have a super summer, enjoy time as a family and hopefully, the sun will shine!

Butterflies in Primary 1!

For the last few weeks Primary 1 have been looking after our caterpillars. Over this time we have them grow very large after munching on lots of food and we got to see them make their chrysalis. Over the weekend our caterpillars emerged as butterflies. After a lovely few days getting to watch them and making sure we fed them lots of lovely fruit we set our butterflies free in the secret garden. It was amazing to see them spread their wings and fly up into the sky!

What a lovely way to end an absolutely fantastic year in Primary 1A. Thank you for all your hard work and we wish you a lovely holiday and all the best going into Primary 2!

Outdoor Learning!

Over the past 4 weeks we have had a Friday focus on outdoor learning and Primary have absolutely loved it! We have reading and listening to stories outside. We explored the secret garden and tried to find things using our five senses. We were outdoor detectives as we went on bug hunt where we made friends with Sammy the Snail. We also used chunky chalk to practise our reading words out on the playground before finishing with a bubble party!

We have loved using the outdoors to help us learn new things and we can’t wait to keep exploring when we return after the summer holidays!

P1 & P7 Buddy Event – 01/07/19

The Primary 7 pupils would like to invite their P1 buddies to a Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Monday 1st July. P7 pupils will be bringing in their teddies and their favourite book to share, along with some juice and biscuits as part of the picnic. It would be great if all the P1 pupils could please take in their own teddy bears and one of their favourite story books on Monday too!

Let’s hope the sun will shine!

On Friday we began a four week block with a focus on outdoor learning! Primary 1A and Primary 1B took to the garden where we went on a senses scavenger hunt. We had to hunt for things that felt smooth, things that had a nice smell, and things of different colours and shapes. We had a lovely time and we were even able to find a giant snail, which we have named Sammy! We took Sammy into the classroom in our magnifier so we could have a good look at him before setting him free.

We are looking forward to getting back outdoors this Friday too!

P1 – School Trip – Tuesday

Just a wee reminder that we will be heading of to Aigas tomorrow for our Primary 1 school trip.

Please can you ensure that your child comes to school with a packed lunch as we will be away over lunch time.

Due to the rain we have been having over the past few days please make sure that your child wears appropriate footwear – wellies, old trainers or boots.

The bus will be leaving at 9:10am so please make sure you are at school on time.

Many thanks.

Miss Munro and Mrs McArthur. 🙂

Fun in the sun -P1B

We really did have fun in the sun today as we took part in a tennis taster session delivered by the ladies from Inverness Tennis and Squash Club. Some budding Wimbledon stars of the future perhaps?????

Nursery transition in P1B

We have really enjoyed letting the Nursery join in our P.E sessions as part of the Health and Well-being transition activities. We hope they have had fun also and are looking forward to coming to P.1 in August!!

Rugby superstars in P1B

Fredie and Archie showing off the medals they received for playing rugby. Well done to both of you – amazing!

Primary 1A and Primary 1B Easter Egg Hunt

Primary 1A and Primary 1B had a fantastic time this morning searching for the Easter eggs hidden around the playground. A big thank you to Ashie House group for organising such a fun day for us all!

We made the most of the sunshine before lunchtime by going on a science hunt outside. We were able to identify lots of different materials such as wood, metal, plastic and rock.

We had a great time playing on the trim trail before we had our lunch.

P1B – role-play

Today we had lots of fun and lots of laughs re-enacting emergency situations at Loch Ness. We now know that in an emergency, we should  dial 999, give the operator our name, tell them where we are and also what has happened.

Ashie House Group Easter Egg Hunt – Tomorrow.

Tomorrow (Tuesday 2nd April) Ashie House group have organised an Easter Extravaganza!

All the classes will be taking part in an Easter egg hunt where we must count the number of hidden eggs in the playground. Primary 1A and primary 1B will be taking part in the egg hunt together before break time! 

On Wednesday afternoon the Ashie house captains will announce the winner from each class. 

As part of the Easter egg hunt children are encouraged to wear bright colours to school tomorrow! 

Good luck and happy egg hunting!

P1B – open morning

A huge thank you to all the parents/carers/grandparents who came to help us build our castles today!  Everyone was so focused and engaged during  the process  and some amazing castles were constructed. I think there were maybe even some dads who wanted to stay rather than  go back to work!!

They will be coming home to you soon but we are going to try and paint them first. Another messy job, but lots of good fun...
