Pyjama Day- Rebels

What a cosy Friday we’ve had! To mark the end of Scottish Book Week, Mrs Pirie started us off with an assembly all about ‘Rebels in stories’. She then shared an extract from a book about her favourite rebellious character: Pippi Longstocking.

Class 1 and 2 have had lots of opportunities to share stories today, including ones from home. We also gave out some Bookbug bags to P1 and Read,Write,Count bags to P2 and P3. The children had the chance to share some of their new books at school, but are looking forward to exploring their packs further at home.


PJ Friday- Book Week

To celebrate Scottish Book Week, we are inviting the children to come to school in their PJs for the day. They can also bring in a book from home that links to the theme of ‘REBELS’.

Any pupils who do not wish to take part may come in their normal uniform- it is completely their choice.

Please ensure that suitable footwear and jackets are brought in as the children will still be outdoors at break and lunch.

Class 1- Edinburgh String Quartet

Class 1 were extremely lucky this afternoon as they had a special visit from the Edinburgh String Quartet.  Tijmen, Tom, Cathy and Mark played us some beautiful music and took the time to explain which part of the world each piece came from. They also told us about their instruments, answered questions and let us share our thoughts and feelings. Thank you so much, it was lovely to have you and we hope you enjoy your time in the Highlands!
