Highlife Highland Disability Sport Session.

As part of our topic on The Body, we were lucky to have a special visit from Fiona and Charlie from Highlife Highland.

During our PE session they took us through various games disabled/ people with an impairment play. We enjoyed Goal Ball and Boccia. The children really enjoyed learning how their other senses stepped up when other parts of the body were restricted.

Thank you so much to Fiona and Charlie. We had a great time!


5 Star Gold Award Last week

Last week during assembly we had a visit from Carol at SSPCA. The children learned all about how to care for birds and other animals as winter approaches.

We also gave certificates and stickers to our 5 Star Gold Award winners Archie and Ruaridh.  Well done boys!


Class 1- Investigating Materials

As we delve deeper into our ice topic, Class 1 have been thinking about its importance but also about how we protect ourselves from the cold. We did some investigating this afternoon and had to explore which material would be the most suitable for a winter coat. We introduced the word ‘insulation’ and clarified that we wanted a material which would stop heat from escaping. We were very lucky to have some special Thermochromic paper and used this to test our materials. We even recorded our predictions and results. Well done Class 1, a very busy way to end the week!

Community Spirit

This morning we welcomed eight  members of the community into our school to share some of our learning, songs and penny whistle.  Thank you very much to Derek, our next door neighbour, for ensuring all our visitors arrived to and from school safely.

Class 1 performed their AMAZING superhero song, followed by a song telling us the story of Superworm.

Class 2 enjoyed sharing their penny whistle tunes to the audience. They played Twinkle, Twinkle and Auld Lang Syne, as well as Culters Candy and Hot X Buns.

Well done everyone and thanks again to all our visitors.
