P6 Bikeability on Wednesday

Please can P6s remember their bikes, helmets, gloves and a waterproof jacket for Bikeability on Wednesday afternoon?  Many thanks!

Easter egg decorating competition

Each year we ask the children to decorate a hard-boiled egg in class.  These are then judged and a winner and a runner up from each year receive an Easter egg at our assembly.

Children are asked to bring an undecorated hard-boiled egg on Wednesday, 3rd April.  They can also bring in egg cups/holders and extra art materials if they wish.

The school will provide glue, paint and various art resources so that everyone can create something in the time given.  (Polystyrene eggs can be provided for anyone who requires an alternative e.g. for allergies.)

Euroquiz Runners Up!

We are so proud of our studious P6 Euroquizzers who were the runners up for the Highland heats today.  They showed impressive knowledge and impeccable manners.

Since January, they have spent time each week learning about Europe’s nations, geography, history, culture, languages and democracy.  All five team members have also spent a considerable amount of their own free time revising too.  None of this would have been possible without our amazing Euroquiz coach – Fiona Mackenzie.  Huge thanks to Fiona for all the hours of preparation, and to Ms Wynne for taking such good care of our team today.

Congratulations to the Highland winners, Cradlehall Primary, who now go on to the national final in Edinburgh in May.  🙂


Wir können zu zwölf auf deutsch zählen.

This morning, P7 learned how to count to twelve in German!

We were visited by Ms Beyer (from Germany) and Ms Snoek (from Glen Urquhart High School.)  Ms Beyer showed us some short films made by her high school pupils.  She teaches her classes German and English.  Then Ms Beyer and Ms Snoek taught us to count to twelve.  We made a human number line and then played a dice game .

Some of the words reminded us of English, French and Gaelic number words.

We’ll have another session with Ms Snoek and Ms Beyer next Thursday.  In the meantime, can you ask us to count to twelve for you at home?

eins zwei, drei, vier, fünf, sechs, sieben, acht, neun, zehn, elf, zwölf
