Sanitary Products

As part of Glenurquhart Primary’s health and wellbeing programme, and in line with the Curriculum for Excellence, P6/7 have been taking part in sexual health and relationships education.

As part of our learning about puberty and menstruation, we investigated how two different menstrual hygiene products work: sanitary towels and tampons.

We have watched 2 episodes of “Ask Lara” which discuss menstruation and PMT.

Ask Lara: Oh No! It’s here!

Ask Lara: Girls Only Party

Miss Mullin and Miss MacDonald explained that sanitary towels and tampons are always available from the school, if needed.

Final Sharetime

On Thursday afternoon, we spent our final sharetime with our P1/2 buddies.  Most of the boys and girls chose to play in P1/2, but a few decided to spend time together in P6/7M, listening to relaxing music, drawing and reading together.  We had a happy time but felt quite sad when it came to an end.

Thank you P1/2 and P6/7M for being so kind to each other this term.  🙂


Rounding & estimating

P6/7M have been revisiting rounding and estimating over the last two weeks.  We have been rounding 4-7 digit numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand to help us to estimate calculations.

On Monday afternoon, we made our own 4-digit numberlines with post-it notes.  We had to round 4 digit numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand in our jotters.

When rounding and estimating calculations, we discussed how knowing our numbers bonds really well is a huge help.  This is something we can continue to practise at home, using our maths packs!  🙂


Ross County FC Visit

On Monday morning, P4, P5 and P7 were put through their paces at Ross County Football Club Stadium in Dingwall before being given a tour of the training areas and the stadium itself.

Thanks to all the coaches for such an active, exciting morning!  🙂

P6/7 Transition Dance

A big thank you to all who helped with this last night.  A super time was had by all.  A special thank you to Mrs Woodhouse and her S6 helpers who were fantastic last night and to Mrs Graham and her helpers for purchasing and preparing the food.

Ross County Trip Tomorrow!

Just a quick reminder to P4, P5 and P7 pupils – they need to bring their PE kit, trainers (or football boots without metal studs,) a drink, a snack, a packed lunch and waterproofs for our trip to Ross County stadium tomorrow morning.

We will be leaving at 9.10am.

There are still 6 Primary 7s who need to return their permission slips!  Please make sure you bring them with you!

On apprend à jouer de la cornemuse!

We are busy making posters to introduce our school to our partner school in France.  We decided that the French pupils might be interested in the instruments that we are learning here in Scotland.  The first group to be photographed in action were the people learning chanter and bagpipes.  We wonder if any pupils in France will learn this at school?  We think probably not!

“We are learning to play the bagpipes” in French is “On apprend à jouer de la cornemuse.”

“We are learning to play the chanter” in French is “On apprend à jouer du chant.”

“Complete a column” game

On Monday, P6/7 continued their work on probability by playing a board game.  The aim of the game was to match events to the probability scale and be the first to complete a column.

The events were things like:

  • A number card under 6 from a deck of playing cards
  • Rolling two dice and they are both odd
  • Tossing a coin 3 times and getting heads twice
  • 0 on a 1–10 dice

P7 Transition Week: Tues 25th – Fri 28th June

Mr Iain Fulton, Depute Head Teacher at Glen Urquhart High School, visited the P7s this morning.  He gave each P7 an invitation to transition week.  Each pupil was also given an information pack for their parents.  There will also be an information evening for new S1 parents on Thursday 27th June from 7pm – 9pm.  The P7s are encouraged to attend this with their parents.

The information packs can be downloaded from the high school website: GUHS P7 Transition page

Glenurquhart P7s should meet Miss Mullin at the primary school gate at 8:30am on Tuesday 25th.  Miss Mullin will walk the P7s up to the high school entrance for the first morning.  Thereafter, P7s will make their own way to the high school for an 8:40am start.
