P6 have been lucky enough to have Miss Cowie , a student teacher, working with us for the past seven weeks. It was her last day with us on Friday. We have really enjoyed having her as part of our class and we have had lots of fun learning with her. Thank you Miss Cowie and Good Luck in your teaching adventure .
We have been reading the book “Wonder” and The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse. It made us think about how little we can tell about a person, just from their appearance. It is what is inside that really counts. We thought about our strengths, passions and qualities we would like other people to notice and surrounded ourselves with them.
P6 have been working very hard this week. They have completed an art assessment which has focussed on “Street Art” and I have to admit, I have some very talented artists in my class. With Christmas in the air, P6 are fairly excited. I look forward to parents who can come on Friday next week.
An end to another busy week. P6A thoroughly enjoyed “Children in Need” on Friday. Some excellent make up and many thanks to P6A for their donations too.
Just a reminder to parents that on Wednesday 13 November, P6 will be going to the Vue cinema. The pupils are excited as one can expect. There are some payments not yet received, so if possible, please make payments (£2) early next week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
We planted some sunflowers today. We have put them onto our windowsill and will take turns watering them every day. We hope that they will grow in time for the summer holidays. Some of the pupils from P6 joined us .
We have been practising our coding skills using Spheros. Using our Chromebooks, we were learning how to programme these amazing robots to follow our instructions. We could programme the light to change colour too, which we really liked!
We have been practising our relay skills in preparation for Sports Day and learning how to improve our running technique. We are loving the great weather and being able to make the most of our outdoor learning environment.
We are learning how to convert metric units in P6. We have been revising our measuring skills by measuring a variety of objects, found both inside and in our outdoor learning environment. P6 challenged themselves to find out the perimeter of the school too!
The Digital Dynamos pupil group would like to invite all parents/carers to their ‘Collaborating with Chromebooks’ Information Evening on Wednesday 27th March from 6-7pm in our school gym hall.
The Digital Dynamos will be presenting throughout the evening and everyone will get a chance to use, learn and play with our new Chromebooks and Chromebook tablets, as well as other mobile devices we have available at school. More details are intended to follow regarding this exciting family learning event!
It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’. As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices. This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.
Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.
We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:
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 alongfor 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.
We are delighted to share that Lochardil has received the most number of tokens in the recent round of the TESCO Community Awards Bags for Life Scheme. Our Wise About Waste application should now be more achievable and we look forward to using the money (£4,000) effectively.
Just a quick reminder, the children will be receiving their Christmas dinners in the dining hall for lunch tomorrow if they have ordered them and all children and staff are encouraged to wear their finest Christmas jumpers if they so wish! Please do not go out to buy a jumper especially for the occasion, it is the company and the wonderful atmosphere that we are all looking forward to tomorrow!
Welcome back everyone!! It was lovely to see everyone back and refreshed after the holidays. I hope you all enjoyed them!
Today, a letter went home with information about our topic homework for this term. The children have been asked to create a personal project on a charity of their choice. It can be any registered charity. This week the children have been asked to look at different charities at home and choose which one they will complete their project on. I have asked them to let me know on Friday which charity they have selected.
