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.

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.
Primary 1 pupils enjoyed a fantastic Christmas crafts session on Thursday 6th December. A big Thank you to Dylan, Lucja and Ruard’s Mums for being Santa’s secret helpers. The children and parents worked together to make elves and Christmas tree decorations out of cones, paper plates and a combination of other craft materials. A fantastic time was had by all with the elves going home on the day and the tree decorations going home before the Christmas

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.
Last week we had a special guest in our class – Mrs Eckersley. She taught us about British Airways. We learned about the cabin crew and about pilots. The cabin crew get free mosquitoes protection and if they spray it on their tights it actually melts there tights cause that’s how strong it is. We also learned that if you are a member of cabin crew you will get 2 free travels each year. There are few people that die or get really sick on the plain here – some people get heart attacks, strokes, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, diabetes and lots of other reasons.
At the wing of the plane there are bunkbeds for the cabin crew when they rest. Some pregnant people give birth on the plane, this is not that common because the latest they can board a plane is at 37 weeks pregnant. Sometimes there are 4 pilots and there usually hard to keep them amused.
We got water and popcorn because people get a snack while they are travelling. We were learning about people travelling in the plane and the skills you need to have to apply for the job. Mrs Eckersley told us about the countries she has visited – the best one for her is Bermuda. She was also showing all the money from their country.
