As part of our School Improvement Plan this year we have been thinking about how to support the children in their skills development. We have created our ‘Super 6 Skills’ which are linked through all areas of the curriculum and it clearly explains why the children needs skills for learning, life and work.
Here is a copy of our Super 6 Skills;
On Friday, a team of pupils participated in the Ross Shire Sports Association Cross Country Championship at the Black Isle Show Ground in Muir of Ord.
They all tried their very best and demonstrated great determination! They were a credit to our school.
We had a great day celebrating World Book Day.
The children had the option to dress up and then share who they were and why.
The nursery came over to P123 to enjoy the story ‘Zog’ and have a snack together.
We were also very lucky to have Ryan from Ross County come in to share a story with both classes.
“Reading is dreaming with your eyes open!”
Four years ago the P567s made a time capsule which was not allowed to be opened until after 29th Feb 2020. P123 thought they would do the same so they made some items for their leap year time capsule. It is now going to be wrapped up and put away in the cupboard until the next leap year when we will be in P567.
Here are some pictures of P567 with what they opened from their leap year capsule, they were very excited to see what they had put in it!
The whole school are currently taking part in an Authors Live session with Michael Ronsen. Michael Ronsen is the author of many books but the one that most of you will know is,
‘We’re going on a bear hunt’
This was a great opportunity for the children to learn about the author have hear it first hand from him.
Children in P1-3 were busy practising lots of skills, such as measuring, weighing, sharing, reading recipes and following instructions are to name but a few. They had great fun making their own batch and then getting to taste one.
