A very big thank you to all the museum staff for hosting P1 and P1/2 pupils at their Dinosaur exhibition. They gave us a lot information about Dinosaurs during our visits on Tuesday and Thursday.
The highlight was definitely the clay “fossil” footprint that we made and to discovered that some of the fossils in the Exhibition were found on The Isle of Skye, Scotland.
We used our looking and listening skills to spot many different things during our visit. There was lots of information shared and questions asked.
Thanks also to the parent helpers who came along with us and helped keep us safe on our trip.
Here are a few pictures of serious palaeontologists at work 😉
Don´t forget to share your highlights of the trip with your family.

There will be a guided tour and some activities for the pupils to participate in during our visits. Although the exhibition is free, to cover the cost of the Guide we would appreciate if all parents could pay £2 each. This can be paid to the school office or directly to the class teacher.
If you have not already paid the £2 to cover the cost of this trip could you please pay by Monday 14th January 2019?
Please can you make sure that your child has appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions on the day?
If any parents would like to help assist us during our trip to the Inverness Museum on Tuesday 15th January or Thuesday 17th January, please inform Mrs McMillan or Miss Cardoso. We will be on trip from 9.30 a.m. to approx. 12noon.
We would also appreciate some help with heating up and serving food at our Burns Ceilidh on Friday 25th January. If you are free and able to help between 1 and 2.30 p.m. please inform Mrs McMillan, Miss Cardoso, Mrs Simpson, Ms Traill or Mrs Wilson.
Also, we would appreciate any visits from parents who would like to come in to class and share any of their skills/talents to the class, including sharing information about their job.
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.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and supported our first ‘Movie Night’. There was such a lovely atmosphere and it has certainly helped us feel more festive!
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to David from HCVF for providing us with the most amazing screen and technology for our event, completely free of charge! Thank you to David and Gordon for coming along, setting it all up and coming back to pick it up this morning. We are very grateful! http://www.hcvf.co.uk

Thank you very much for all of your support! The P7s have now fundraised over £1000!
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.
The children in Primary 1/2 are planning a visit to the library on Tuesday 6th of November at 10.00am.
During the visit we will have a tour of the library, a treasure hunt and listen to a story. We are all very excited.
Please don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes and a waterproof jacket.
Thank you. Have a nice weekend.
Mrs Cameron and Miss Cardoso
