Thank you message for all the food donations from Lochardil Larder!

Please see the presentation below for our thank you message for all the food donations from Lochardil Larder!

Pr 7 Lochardil Larder

A group of us have been working together to help count, sort and pack up the food donations we received after our dress up day in October. We covered boxes with Christmas paper, made salt dough decorations and covered the hampers with recyclable plastic cellophane to finish them off.

We were delighted to share 12 food hampers with Inverness Women’s Aid today and have 10 more ready for delivery to some of the senior citizens in the community next week. We will share out the remaining items to other families and the Inverness foodbank.

Thank you to everyone who donated food, which will make such a difference to families at Christmas.

We felt so proud of being able to help others. We enjoyed working together on this project. Anna, from Women’s Aid, was very happy to come along to receive our hampers today.

Our data handling and maths skills came in useful!

We enjoyed some Benchball in the gym with Miss Barclay this week. We had our coding session with Skills Development Scotland today (Code Art). We found it challenging and fun. We were good at helping each other and trying to keep up with the pace of instructions. It was great to have the virtual link to help us develop our skills, since we are unable to visit the office on Church Street.

P 7A 20.11.20 Art and Assembly

We tried some topic linked art this week, drawing a bottle, since we have been looking at alcohol as part of our Substance Misuse topic. The line pencil drawings showed our understanding of perspective and shading.

We hope to use the NSPCC online assembly resources next week as part of the “Speak out, Stay safe” campaign. We have enjoyed “live” assemblies with Mr John Darcy from the NSPCC in previous years and we look forward to the “virtual” materials provided for us to cover this important topic. Please see the attached parent information letter for further information.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to the Blythswood Shoebox Appeal! Thanks to your kindness and generosity we have collected 61 boxes along with donations of money and gifts. It is really appreciated!

Children in Need

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to Children in Need today! So far we have raised an amazing £533! Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness. We had so much fun and it was really lovely to see our friends in other classes virtually during our school quiz!

Pr 7A 13.11.20

We have had a great week writing our suspense story. We included lots of techniques to build up the tension and mystery. We took part in the Pr 5 Children in Need quiz which had a range of quite challenging questions. We donated £20.35 for the event today. Thank you for your contributions.

Children in Need 2020!

This Friday is the big fundraising show for Children in Need and Primary 5 have been working hard to help everyone take part safely and have lots of fun while raising money for this great cause!

This Friday will be a Dress Down Day. This year’s CiN theme is ‘Wear Yellow’ but any dress down clothing is fine!

The activities, which have been organised by Primary 5, will take place virtually within your child’s classsroom.

We are not charging specified amounts for taking part in either the Dress Down Day, or the activities. Any donations would be greatly appreciated though! Please hand in all donations to school on, or before, Friday the 13th of November. Thank you very much!

From Primary 5 and Miss MacArthur!

It is always great to see shoeboxes arriving for Blythswood. Thank you to the families who have donated today.

It was a perfect afternoon for a bit of tennis. We started our new block of PE lessons in the MUGA. We are trying out netball on Wednesdays and games with Miss Barclay on Thursdays.

Blythswood Shoebox Appeal

Blythswood Shoebox Appeal

Primary 5 are organising this year’s Blythswood Shoebox Appeal!

The Blythswood Shoebox appeal helps make Christmas a special time to those in need.

You have been given a leaflet, which tells you all about the Blythswood Shoebox appeal, how to make your shoebox and a checklist of things to include.

There are extra leaflets available at the office for anyone who needs.

We would be very grateful for any donations of filled shoeboxes, or any items which could help to fill a shoebox.

Please hand in all items and shoeboxes by Friday the 6th of November.

Thank you very much!

Love from Primary 5!

We have been working on our Book Creator Buddy Books this week and designing our All About Me T-shirt. Mrs Paterson inspired us to write our own “This is the Time” poems. We have published them for everyone to enjoy. https://read.bookcreator.com/HJQZDnlW1sSty79mpaEFFnqSup63/UEV14elVSS61NxkXvwUz_Q
