Welcome to Daviot

We would like to welcome Duncan (P1), Chloe (P4) and Katie (P6) to our school. The children have settled in really well today. We look forward to getting to know them better over the next few weeks.

Thank you to all the Daviot children for being so friendly and taking care of them so well.

Go Team Daviot!


Just a reminder that tennis starts tomorrow for Class 2.  The sessions will be delivered during class time by a coach from the Inverness Tennis Club and will run for 4 weeks.

All children should remember their PE kit.  I suspect due to the weather, the sessions will run in the hall. Therefore, sensible indoor running shoes will be required.  If I am notified of a change I will let you know.

Rag Bag

The Rag Bag is almost full again but we could manage a few more bags if anyone has any at home.

Remember the Rag Bag can take any wearable clothing, paired shoes , handbags and belts.  Please ensure all clothing is in a bag.

All money raised through the Rag Bag goes into school funds.  Thanks for all your support!

Class 2

Today was an extra busy day of learning in Class 2. We have been working on written division, reading and comprehension skills and learning the parts of a river.

The class enjoyed their afternoon challenge of researching the parts of a river. They then had to work in groups to design and create a model river. It’s still a working process but I am delighted with their work.  Each group showed excellent determination and great team work!

Five Star Gold Award Winners

This week the Five Star Gold Award went to two of our boys.

Joshua received his award for being patient, determined and for showing perseverance when coding at the UHI STEM Hub on Friday.

Alfie was awarded his certificate for checking, saying and following his timetable with increasing confidence.

Congratulations and well done to both recipients! We’re very proud of you.

Class 2 had a great day at the STEM Hub at UHI. During the day we used TINKERCAD to create a school badge/mascot followed by CODING a musical piano using fruit. In the afternoon we made our own MAZE GAME and learned about different STEM careers. We even got to interview a research scientist during the session and stick SKILLS on him.

Thanks again to Mhairi and Evelyn for a super session.
