Primary 6/7 News

DYW Assembly

Well done to all the children who made such an huge effort to come in dressed up as a member of the work force. We had a plethora of jobs from Builders, Nurses, Vets, Actors, Teachers, Mums, Artists and so much more. Here are some of the work force on parade at assembly:

 

DYW week

Thanks very much to Sara Simpson who visited P7 today to talk about her job as an architect. The pupils especially enjoyed trying out the virtual reality goggles.

P7 Rugby Coaching Sessions

P7 enjoyed another excellent coaching session from Highland Rugby Club today. They developed ‘tag rugby’ skills which they will use in the tournament at Highland Rugby Club.

Please note, the venue has now changed to Highland Rugby Club and it will no longer take place at Charleston as previously advertised.

JRSO communication

The JRSO citizenship group has produced a beautiful poster to give some tips on how to keep the pupils and their adults safe around the roads in the village and beyond. These posters are now distributed around some of the shops in the village and a copy has been sent home in school bags. Please ensure you follow the guidelines so that everyone is kept safe as they travel to and from school.

BBC Micro:bit

Primary 7 thoroughly enjoyed their first session working with BBC Micro:bit. Each pair managed to code their micro:bit to play ‘rock, paper, scissors’. Thank you to Dr Evelyn Gray from the UHI for guiding us through the first steps.

P7 visitor

Primary 7 were delighted to welcome Kirsty Proctor to school today to hear all about her job as an Aseptic Dispensing Technician at Raigmore hospital. Not only did this fit well with Science and Technology week, it also continues our learning about jobs available in the local area. Thank you, Kirsty!
