Just a reminder…

Just a reminder that on Thursday we’re having a school picnic lunch. This is for the children only as our Family Picnic will be on June 22nd, just before the Summer Fete. Also on Thursday, children are invited to come wearing their ‘after-school club’ clothes. If your child goes to Beavers, gymnastics, shinty, Ready Steady GO, athletics etc. then they can come to school wearing their ‘club clothes’ instead of their school uniform.

For the Summer Fete you should have received a cup to fill with goodies to sell. We’ve had a few come back and I’m wondering if the children might have filled them by themselves as we’ve got bits of old play-dough and rather hairy hair bobbles!! These cups sell for £1 at the Fete so should have something new or ‘as good as new’ in them. We don’t want any disappointed little people on the day so if you need another cup or think your child may have filled it themselves and want to double check what they put in it, just pop a note in their Red Folder and I’ll send them home. Thanks for your help with this!

Woodland Fun!

We’ve had another lovely morning in the woods playing our favourite games and working on telling the time – we’re all really good at arranging the hands of the clock to show the correct time!

Next week will be our last trip to the woods for this session and we’re hoping to take our friends in Nursery 4 along with us; should be lots of fun!

Reading Time

There’s nothing quite like story time, with our P7 buddies, out in the sunshine!

Your children may have mentioned that we have the Scholastic Book Fair in school at the moment. If your child wishes to buy a book you can send in some money tomorrow or on Monday and the P7s will help them spend it!

Our Trip to the Beach…

This morning we set off on our adventure to Rosemarkie beach! We had two challenges to complete…to create some amazing ‘Sand Art’ and to go exploring the rock pools to see what lives there (we found SO many snails!).

The sun came out at lunchtime so everyone got ready for some fun playing in the sand and in the sea!

There was also time for a run along the sand… ready, steady, GO!

And a day at the beach is never complete unless you get a play at the park and some ice-cream! What a brilliant day we’ve had; hope your little ones sleep well tonight!

Dancing Fun!

What fun we had today learning lots of new dance moves and keeping healthy while having FUN! It was great to see lots of our P1 mums joining us for a wee dance in the sun before joining us in our classroom to share in our learning journey- now I know where all your children get their ‘moves’ from!

Explosions in P1!

This morning we had another treat as Ieuan’s mum came in to teach us how to make an exploding bag! We use vinegar and bicarbonate of soda for this experiment and we LOVED when Braden’s started spurting out all over him!! We also has a look at what happens when you mix cola with mentos… another explosion! Science is such fun!
