We had an absolutely super time at Macdonald Park this morning and the sun was shining for us to make it such a lovely day. We learned  about bumble bees and how they gather nectar and pollen. We also went on a minibeast hunt around the park and found some unusual creepy crawlies, including a ‘Huntersman’ which we all thought was a spider! Many thanks to  Ioan’s mum, Liam’s mum and May’s gran for volunteering to help us on the trip. It would not have been possible without your  help and it is very much appreciated, as always.

Just a reminder to all parents and carers that we are having our Aigas visitor coming on Monday 28th May and it will be helpful for all the children to be wearing suitable outdoor clothing and footwear for us going over to MacDonald Park on our minibeast adventure.

Book Fair

We had a little trip to the book fair this afternoon at the other end of the school.  A lot of the children were interested in some of the books available but did not have enough money to purchase them. Do not worry,  as the book fair will be in school until 12th March so there is still time after school to get the books that you want boys and girls!

Our Class Trip to Inshes Library and Culloden Vet!

The horrible weather today was certainly not going to stop us having a fantastic day on our class trip!  We started the day off with a visit to Inshes Library. We learned what happens in the library and how librarians help us in the local community. Then due to the terrible weather  we managed to squeeze in a visit to Inverness Botanical Gardens where we had our yummy lunch and a tour round the lovely gardens! After lunch we  went on a Gruffalo walk in the cold wet weather and warmed up in Culloden Vets. We met a lovely dog called Izzy who was one of the veterinary nurse’s dogs who was fit and well thankfully. We  saw the operating theatre and got to dress up in some of the gear used for operations. We  learned from Vet Sam how they would look after a dog if they came in to the vet to see them.  We saw a model of dogs teeth and how they should be brushed as well as the type of worms that some dogs may unfortunately get. Thank goodness the worms were  only models in jars! We managed to bandage up a teddy dog’s leg and learned about the protective collars and vests that can be put on dogs to protect their stitches.

HUGE THANK YOU to Ava’s mum and Liam’s mum for supporting us all today, you were both stars!

Also another Lochardil thank you to Inshes Library , all the staff at Inverness Botanical Gardens and all the Staff at Culloden Veterinary Clinic who were so accommodating and have made our day extra special!
