  • Pretend the Queen has passed a law banning Christmas. Write a letter to convince the Queen that Christmas should not be banned.
  • Pretend you have been given a baby reindeer to raise. Write about what you will do to take care of it. What challenges will you have to overcome?

P1 and P1/2 singing

We are going out to sing some Christmas Carols on Wednesday 19th and Thursday the 20th December. If any P1 and P1/2  parents would like to join us you are very welcome.

On Wednesday we are going to Tesco Metro. The time is still to be confirmed.

On Thursday we are going to be singing in the Eastgate Centre between 10 and 10.30 a.m.

It would be great if the pupils could wear a Christmas jumper or a Christmas head bopper or bow at these events, if they have one.

P1 and ELCC Visit to The Children’s Ward

Some of the P1 and the ELCC pupils visited the Children’s Ward at Raigmore hospital on Friday 7th December. They sang some Christmas Carols and were surprised when Val, one of the nurses brought them each two gifts. They received a Christmas Bopper to wear on their heads and a Christmas pencil and rubber. The visit was finished off with a well-earned drink of juice and a biscuit.

P1 and ELCC Visit Ach An Eas Care Home

The residents of Ach An Eas Care Home were entertained on Wednesday 5th December by the Primary 1 and Nursery pupils Christmas carol performance. The feedback from residents and staff is that they would love to have us back again some time. During our visit the pupils enjoyed some refreshments of juice and biscuits after all their hard work.  Everyone had a fantastic time. The  Nursery Pupils made a Thank You card and the Primary 1 pupils made Christmas cards to show their appreciation. Here is a picture of the cards.

Keep an eye out in the Highland News and Inverness Courier for photos of the event.
