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!

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.

Change of date

The Academy are holding an Open Afternoon for P6/7 parents, this is now being held at 2:15-3:15pm on Tuesday 3rd October (not 26th Sept as previously indicated).

I have been well and truly blown away by the quality of art being produced this week. We looked at some of Lowry’s work, and used this as inspiration for creating our own piece, with a focus on showing perspective and depth. What remarkable artists we have in the #bestclassever!!

Admittedly, I was not popular when I asked them to add colour, but stay tuned and I’ll post some photos of the finished pieces.
