My favourite times of the week. Any idea what ERIC and SSR stand for?

Well done to Kaya, who earned the right to keep last week’s quote. Great work!

As it is the last week of term, I thought I would give the children a bit of a break from regular homework, and instead ask them to do the following:

Maths – Make 3 progressions in Maths Whizz.  Some children have mentioned they cannot access Maths Whizz.  Maths Whizz is accessed by visiting http://www.mathswhizz.com or by downloading the Maths Whizz app.  Accessing Maths Whizz on an i-pad via Safari will not work as it requires Flash Player.  If using an i-pad, download the (free) app.  If using a pc, visit the website.

Each week I choose a quote for us to work on.  Themes so far have covered hard work, respect, building each other up, and initiative.  Find a quote which you think would work well as our Keep the Quote, and e-mail it to me at diane.macleod@highland.gov.uk.  Use your name in the subject heading so that I can access is easily.  Each week I will pick one person, and their quote will be used.  That person will be responsible for looking out for who is working hard to keep the quote, and will award the quote at the end of week.

It’s been a lovely start to the week, let’s keep it up!

Looking through my photos tonight, I’ve come across these pictures which were taken a fortnight ago, on our 3rd science lesson delivered by Dr Murray from Nairn Academy.

Children worked in small groups to test how to make the loudest alarm. Can you remember what your independent variable was (that was the one thing you changed)?

That’s me done for the night, folks. Have a great weekend.

We ran out of time today to do this week’s Keep the Quote, so that will be a job for Monday.

I have just realised, however, that I didn’t post the last Keep the Quote. It was wonderful to see so many children being voted for, and we had a 4-way draw for keeping last week’s quote! After a second draw, Lily was chosen.  Well done!  What kind, inspiring children. 😁

Not sure if they enjoyed this challenge!

Please remember that deposits for Loch Insh are due in to school next week.

Many thanks.

I stumbled across this challenge and thought it would be a fun way for us to participate in some fundraising. The challenge is to eat a doughnut without licking your lips. Morrisons will donate £1 for each video clip uploaded to social media. Walking With The Wounded works to support vulnerable veterans back in to work. I would plan to post the videos on my class Instagram @mrsmacleodsclass. This is a public account (which is part of the terms of Morrisons making the donation).  The children’s faces would be on the video but names and school logos would not be visible.

If you are happy for your child to participate in the #DoughnutLickYourLips challenge, please drop me an email at diane.macleod@highland.gov.uk by Friday morning, confirming this.

Welcome back to another week.  Here is the homework for this week.
