We are using the story of the Gingerbread Man as a stimulus for our written work. The children thoroughly enjoyed acting out the story using masks.
One of our extremely talented Lochardil Primary Parents has been very busy creating this beautiful “Lochardil Lockdown – Don’t Worry Bee Happy” outdoor display right outside the school gates!
Some children have already been very busy painting stones at home, and what a fantastic job they have made. It is lovely to see such bright and colourful creations making us all smile during lockdown.
We think the stones are looking a bit lonely and thats where you guys come in – our fabulous Lochardil Primary Pupils and Families! We want you to add to our lovely display by getting your hands on some stones and taking the time to paint or colour them in whatever way you choose – and when you are out on your daily walk make sure to add your stone to our collection.
Let’s see how many amazing colourful stones we can get displayed in front of our school gate to make sure that we keep each other smiling during Lockdown.
Have a lovely long weekend!
On Friday, the school will be raising money for Sports Relief. Children are welcome to come to school in sports clothes for a donation of £1. A Zumbathon will also be taking place on Friday lunchtime with Mrs Fisher!
We’ve had another busy week in primary 2A. On Thursday, it was World Book Day and the children enjoyed visiting the other classes where they got to do lots of fun, book related activities.
PC Grant visited our class today and he gave us some excellent advice about how to stay safe when we’re out and about. The boys and girls thoroughly enjoyed getting to see inside the back of his police van. The siren was very loud!
Finally a big well done to this week’s Star Writers.
A big well done to Aaron Ross who is our new pupil of the month!
P2A have been learning all about instructional texts and they’ve enjoyed a bit of role play using ‘bossy verbs’. Last week, the boys and girls got to make their own piece of toast for snack time. There was a lot of sticky fingers but they were able to confidently write their own set of instructions.
On Friday, primary 2a had great fun developing their coding skills. The boys and girls were able to create and program their own interactive stories. I was very impressed!
Primary 2a thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the fitness activities organised by the Ruthven House Captains.
This week the boys and girls have been learning all about area. They have been busy comparing areas using non- standard units.
Today we learnt how to do a pencil roll and we created different static balances. We tried our best not to wobble!!
This week the children have been learning how to safely use a search engine to find information. There were lots of excited boys and girls in the class this afternoon!
Happy New Year to you all!! I hope everyone a lovely relaxing holiday.
The children have settled back into the class very nicely and they have all been working very hard. Parent Appointment letters were sent home yesterday. Please return next week.
A big thank you to everyone who attended the open afternoon. The children really enjoyed showing off their work. Here are a few pictures from the afternoon.
Thank you for your continued support.
After 5 weeks of hard work, the big day is nearly here. We are all very excited to perform our Nativity to all the parents, carers and grandparents coming to one of next weeks’ shows. As our morning performances are starting at 9.30am on both Monday and Tuesday, we will be taking P1 and P2 classes in at the first bell on both of these days. This bell rings at 8.50am so it would be greatly appreciated if your child could be in their line at this time in order for us to get ready.
A reminder that doors will open 10 minutes before each performance starts, and you must have your allocated tickets with you to gain entry.
We look forward to seeing lots of friends and family at one of the performances next week, and we hope you are as excited as we are!
P1 and P2 teachers.
A big thank you to all who have provided costumes for the Nativity. We are still waiting on a few so if these could be taken in ASAP that would be great. This only applies to those who received a letter home regarding costumes as we have these in school for some roles.
As we are beginning to organise and distribute tickets, we would be grateful if all ticket slips could be returned by tomorrow at the latest (29/11). As tickets are on a first come, first served basis with a draw for any spares, it is unlikely we will be able to provide tickets for late returns. Please also check your child’s bag in case any slips have been left in the bottom rather than being handed in.
Thank you, P1 and P2 teachers.
There was a lot of fun to be had in Lochardil Primary today! P2A enjoyed taking part in the activities to raise money for Children in Need. Thank you for all your donations. A huge amount was raised for a very worthy cause. Well done everyone!
It’s that time of year again….. nativity rehearsals are well underway. A letter went home today about costumes for the nativity performance. Please note, not all children will receive a letter as some costumes will be provided.
Also, Learning Pathways went home today, please return by Wednesday 20th November.
The school will be celebrating 30 years of Children’s Rights! On Wednesday 20th November the children are invited to come to school in party clothes. We will attend a special celebration assembly and we will also be doing some party games in class!
Please note the school will be closed to pupils on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd November for In-service training.

Welcome back! We have another busy term ahead of us with lots of exciting things planned. Please note the termly overview will be posted up on the blog by the end of next week. Letters regarding our trip to the cinema went out today, if you are able to help then please return the slip as soon as possible. On Monday our class will have the opportunity to go to the book fair where they can browse or purchase a variety of books and stationary items.
This week the children have been learning to identify symmetrical shapes.
P5a are organising a collection for this year’s Blythswood appeal. We would be very grateful if we could have all shoeboxes handed into school by the 08.11.19.
Leaflets about the shoebox appeal, including a checklist of items, were sent home this week. Please let us know if you need any more information or anymore leaflets.
Thank you so much for your support!
From P5a and Miss MacArthur
This is an advance notice that we will be supporting this year’s Blythswood Shoebox Appeal.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us in the past. Last year we collected 55 shoeboxes and we would love to make this an extra special Christmas for those in need again this year.
This year Blysthswood will be collecting our filled Shoeboxes on Friday November the 8th. We would be very grateful if all donations could be handed into school by then. A checklist of suitable Christmas gifts to include in your shoebox will be going home on the first week of term.
Please help us to spread love and hope this Christmas.
We have been learning all about food chains. We know that plants use the energy from the sun to make their own food. Working with a partner we created our own food chains.
Congratulations to this week’s Star Writers!
Primary 2 have been learning to tell the time so on Friday we went outside and made our very own analogue clocks. Working in pairs we were able to set o’clock and half past times.
A big welcome to the Primary 2 blog! We hope you all had a lovely summer. The children have settled in nicely to their new class and they’ve been working very well together.
We will be updating this blog with a Termly Overview next week, which will hopefully give you all the information you need.
Looking forward to an exciting term ahead!
