Halloween Disco and Bake Sale

The parent council are organising this year’s Halloween Disco and they will be holding a bake sale on the day to raise funds.

The P1-3 disco will run from 1pm-2.30pm and the P4-7 disco will run from 6pm-8pm on Tuesday the 30th of October.

We would be grateful if you could provide baking to support their efforts. If you wish to donate baking you should drop it off at school on the morning of the disco. All baked items should be made without nuts and should be labelled if they contain gluten, raisins or any other possible allergen.

Transport Morning

The Transport Morning on Wednesday 10th October was a big success, with most of the pupils really enjoying the opportunity to get inside vehicles that they might not readily have access to on a day to day basis.  P.C. MacLean brought along a Police van and there was great excitement when pupils were experiencing the driving seat, passenger seat and the prisoner hold cell in the rear of the van.

How many pupils do you think you can get into a Vintage Hillman Minx estate car?  The total we got in was 21 of the infants! The horn on the A40 Farina Vintage car was worn out with all the hooting and all the staff needed ear plugs – along with our neighbours!

The Motor Bike and the push bike were enjoyed by many of the pupils, with quite a few of the infants having a go on the push bike.

The infants also really enjoyed getting on to the bicycles and tricycles  that they used to get to ride regularly in Nursery.

Many pupils asked the owners/drivers of the vehicles very relevant questions during the session so hopefully lots to talk about with parents or in class later.

It was a great morning of fun, new experiences and new learning opportunities and even the sun shone beautifully.

 

Nursery News

Thank you to our parent helpers for coming in and sharing their skills with the nursery pupils. The kids thoroughly enjoyed this.

We have introduced ‘Star of the Week’ and they have their own little chair to sit on and they also get to take Susie the bear home. Our Star of the Week this week was chosen for being very kind, helpful and being a happy helper.

Nursery and P1 Library Visit

On Thursday the Nursery and P1 children went to the library for Inverness Book Fest. The children were read the story ‘The Red Dread’ by author Tom Morgan-Jones. The children loved the book and were in fits of laughter. Tom then did some drawing with the children and he showed the children how to draw the characters.

P7 Bake Sale

On Friday afteroon P7 held a Bake Sale during our Playground Grand Opening.

Thank you to the pupils, families and staff who baked lots of lovely treats for our sale.

There was a great turnout and the P7 pupils were super at selling and providing customer servic.

The pupils raised an amazing £295. Thank you for purchasing our yummy treats and for your support.

After hearing about our bake sale and fundraising ideas we have received 2 very generous donations over the weekend taking our total to £350!!
