We were very proud of our P6 and P7 pupils who shared their World of Work presentations with the whole school at Assembly. We learned about the careers of Firefighters, Electricians, Engineers and Marine Biologists. We found out how maths and science are used as well as other interesting facts about their jobs.The pupils were […]
Today we were visited by S2 pupils who have organised a fundraiser for “Adopt a Child.” They are hosting a Film Night at the Craigmonie Theatre (GlenUrquhart High School) on Monday 25th February at 6.30pm. Entry is £2. There will be refreshments available to buy. The film being shown is “Shrek.” The S2s told us that the event will finish by 9pm (not 9.30pm as the poster suggests.)
This is a great opportunity for our P6/7s to mix with pupils from Balnain and Cannich Bridge Primaries, as well as the S1s, S2s and S3s from GUHS!
Today we applied our decimals knowledge and skills by playing ‘Position points,’ ‘Toss a counter’ and ‘Three of a kind.’ Ask us which game we preferred, and why!
Yesterday morning the P7s began the “Resilient Kids” programme to prepare them for the transition to high school. We listened to a story about a girl called Megan and role-played possible solutions for her moral dilemma. I was really impressed by the P7s’ mature discussion about peer pressure. Hopefully by now, parents of P7s will have received the little green note explaining what the programme is for and what Megan’s story is all about.
Last Wednesday afternoon (6th February,) our Bikeability group were busy learning about bike maintenance and the parts of bikes. Thanks, as ever, to Mrs McWhirr for being our Bikeability Instructor again this term! 🙂
Can you name the parts shown in the photos? I really struggled with this!
This evening is the annual careers fair at Glenurquhart High School, from 7pm – 9pm. The P7s have already received their invitations but all primary pupils are welcome (as long as they are with an adult.)
There will be a raffle tonight. Every pupil will be given a raffle ticket on entry. We will draw the raffle during the evening and the winning ticket will be awarded a £25.00 Amazon Voucher! 😊
Miss Mullin and Mr Macleod look forward to seeing some of you there!
Some of the P7 children had a wonderful time helping to ice heart biscuits at the Glenurquhart Care Centre today. It was a fantastic experience with all the children showing their best and receiving a warm thanks from Clair at the end.
French phrase of the week
This morning, the whole school practised saying “please” in French. Can your child say “s’il vous plaît?” Hopefully they’ll be able to show you how to say it and use it at home and at school over the next week or so!
