Primary 3 food flowers and library trip

Food flowers

As part of their learning about Health and Wellbeing, P3 spoke about what flowers need to grow.

We then made our own “everyday” and “sometimes” food flowers to show what we eat to help us grow.

We agreed that some flowers would help us to grow if we eat them often, but some should only be eaten occasionally.

Do you think the flowers in the picture were “everyday” or “sometimes” flowers?

PS. Thank you to all parents who donated wrappers and packaging for us to use.

Library trip

P3 will be visiting the library at 9.30am on Wednesday morning next week where we will be hearing stories from children’s author Linda Strachan.

School teams experience success in local competitions

Our pupils have really put the success in successful learner this month.

First, a P6 and 7 team of Fraser, Cameron, Oliver, Hunter and Zaigham beat 14 other teams to win this years Rotary Club Quiz at Charleston Academy on Thursday 1 March.

Following on from that success, the school P4-P7 choir, led by Mrs Cameron and Mrs Fraser, lifted the top prize for choirs at the music festival this week.

Well done to all involved!

P1/2 Trial Dojo app

P1/2 have invited parents to download the Dojo reward app to let them keep up with their child’s success in class.

The children are given Dojo points in class which they can then use to get a reward.

Parents will be able to use the app to find out how their child is progressing each week.

The app is not for communication with the school, but to allow each parent to see how their own child is doing.

Super day to end a Super Week

Children in P1, P1/2 and P2 dressed up as superheroes to celebrate the end of Safe Strong and Free Highland Hero Week.

All of the children had a great week celebrating super and everyday heroes.

Classes spoke about what makes a hero and agreed that not all heroes wear capes!

Costumes included Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman as well as many homemade heroes.

Mr Knox even got in on the act, wearing a full kilt to show he is a true Highland Hero!
