As part of our topic work on Food and Farming, we were very lucky to have two lots of special visitors.
Firstly, Paula and her daughter Emma brought two pet lambs from their farm to the school. The children got to touch the lambs and some even fed them with milk from bottles. The lambs were very hungry and wagged their tails in delight. Adam thought that they were very cute.
Thanks to Paula and Emma.
Then Mrs Mackintosh and her daughter Louise brought three little baby chicks for us to look at. We all got to feel their soft down and we saw how Louise has to teach them to eat and drink just like a Mummy hen.
Thanks to Louise and Mrs Mackintosh.
Primary 0ne and two enjoyed going shopping this week to the Fruit and Veg shop. All the children were able to choose a piece of fruit and count out the correct money. Well done to all of them for being polite and well mannered.
Finally thanks to the staff at the shop for being so patient and supportive.
Primary one and two are all going to be taking turns this week to go to the Fruit and Veg shop to buy a piece of fruit. They will be counting the money we give them to spend, then checking to see what they can afford to buy and finally counting out the correct money.
Today Primary two went to the shop.
Bananas were a popular choice.
Rylie chose an apple.
Skye chose a plum.
Primary one/two enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day.
Olivia was chosen by primary seven for the pupil with the best costume in primary one/two. Well done!
Helen, our local librarian came in and shared a story and some rhymes with us.
Mrs Fraser-Lee shared a traditional tale with the class in the afternoon.
Primary one/two had football training on Monday with Ross County. They focused on learning to dribble with the ball.
As part of our topic work on Katie-Morag we have been learning and listening to some Scottish songs and music, so today some primary six and seven children entertained us with a range of Scottish songs and tunes.
Andrew and Iona sang a Gaelic song beautifully. Christian and Dylan played The Skye Boat Song on the viola, Louise played Auld Lang Syne and finally Jamie and David played a range of Scotttish tunes on the chanter.
The children loved hearing the tunes and were also able hear all about the different instruments, so a big thank you to all the children from primary one/two.
Enjoying Fortune Cookies.
Thanks to Jamie and Matthew for our super photographs.
Primary one were working on rhyming words.
