Culloden Battlefield Open Day!

As our topic this term is the Jacobites I thought I would share this event happening at the Culloden Battlefield on Sunday 25th November. They are holding a community thank you afternoon where people in Inverness can go along for free and take part in some fun activities!

I just saw it advertised and thought it may be of interest if anyone is looking for something to do on Sunday afternoon! 😊


P5 Swimming!

This week all P5 pupils will begin swimming lessons at the Inverness Leisure Centre. Swimming will be on Thursdays and will run for 10 weeks. Letters have gone out about this with more detailed information but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Please return the slip with an emergency contact name and number to the school by Wednesday and ensure that £2 is brought to school on Thursday to help pay for bus hire costs. Money can be paid weekly (£2 a week) or in a lump sum for the entire block (£20 for the ten weeks).

If there are any parents that are able to help out at all on any of the Thursdays we would greatly appreciate it. Please do get in touch if you are able to volunteer.

Thank you 😊

The Jacobites!

Today we started to think about our new topic for this term which is The Jacobites! We talked about what we knew already and then had a look at some key events in Scottish history to help us place the jacobites on a timeline.

We realised a lot of important things have happened throughout Scotland’s history, such as the Romans coming to Scotland, the Vikings, Highland Clearances, World Wars and many amazing inventions like the telephone and television!

Here is our human timeline of events!

Happy Holidays!

Just a quick post to wish everyone a lovely October holiday! I can’t quite believe that term 1 is over already, it has flown by but been lots of fun!

A big well done to everyone for contributing to our amazing ‘greatest show’ assembly on Wednesday…what a brilliant job you all did. We’ve had lots of brilliant feedback!

Enjoy your 2 weeks off and we’ll see you back at school on 29th October 🙂

Wednesday Assembly

A reminder letter went home today but just in case it hasn’t reached you… our class assembly with P5 is this Wednesday, starting at 2pm so feel free to arrive from 1.45pm onwards!

We are also asking pupils to wear a coloured T-shirt along with their normal black school trousers/leggings.

Look forward to sharing our learning with you all on Wednesday! 🙂

Marvellous Maths!

We’ve been practising our addition and subtraction in our numeracy sessions and focusing on the jump strategy and place value. We also love using Sumdog and our new game- Times Tables Rockstars!

Here are some photos of our numeracy sessions 😊

Our new playground games!

Our school has bought in lots of new PE/playground equipment and games and we were delighted to get a chance to try some of it out this week!

We’re very lucky to have all these new resources and we chatted about how careful and responsible we will need to be when using them all so that they last a long time and things don’t get lost or broken. Next week we will have he chance to play with some of during break and lunch times – how exciting!

Our Assembly!

Pupils should have come home with a letter this week inviting you all to our joint class assembly with P5. The assembly will be all about our topic ‘Equality and Diversity’.

Just in case a letter didn’t make its way to you, our assembly will take place on Wednesday 10th October at 2pm in the hall. We look forward to seeing as many people there as possible and sharing our learning with you!

Sponsored Walk Success!

Apologies for not sharing these photos sooner, what a fantastic sponsored walk we had last week! All the children did so well, particularly with it being the first time a lot of the pupils have done the longer 10k route. Great weather and lots of happy faces but tired legs by the end.

If there is anymore sponsored walk money to be handed in please hand it in this week 😊
