First rule of snowball fights? No-one talks about snowball fights!

This counts as PE, right?!

Keep the quote and synchronised swimming success in P6/7!

We started a new way of awarding the Keep the Quote this past week.  As part of a previous homework task, children were asked to provide a quote.  When a child’s quote is chosen, that child is responsible for keeping an eye on who is keeping their quote, then awarding the quote, giving reasons for their choice.


Rehearsals are well underway for Olivia!  Those children who are involved in the earlier scenes should have a copy of these.  Ms Jerrett is still working away on amendments, and we will post up the full script as soon as we have it (hopefully tomorrow, Tuesday).  I do not plan on giving homework next week or the week after, but will instead be asking children to ensure they know their lines, cues, and words and actions for all songs.

In the meantime, this week’s homework is as follows:

Appointment slips for parents’ evenings went home on Thursday. I have tried my best to accommodate requests. My Thursday evening slots are completely full, so those who did not return their request have been given a time on the Wednesday. If this does not suit, please drop me a line at diane.macleod@highland.gov.uk and we can arrange another time that suits you.  Many thanks.

I love seeing how well the children work, whether it’s up-and-about or sitting and concentrating, they really are the #bestclassever!

A pity I didn’t get pictures of them coo-ing over baby Tilly!

Welcome back to Term 2 – how did that happen?

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!
