We are having another exciting Pirate week in our class . Not only are the children gathering treasure amoungst playdough, sand and water , we also found some buried pirate treasure on the trim trail . The children followed each stage on our treasure map . X marked the spot. At the end of our hunt the children found a chest full of chocolate coins . We finished off by listening to a story about cat pirates ,whose treasure was a pile of haddock in ‘Cats ahoy.’

They May be more pirate adventures ahead in our pirate ships this afternoon ……………

Car Park Disruption Assynt Road

Disruption to Car Par & Assynt Road 25th & 26th March

As you may be aware construction work for our new portacabins is well underway and nearing completion.  On  Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th March the public car park above the site which serves the shops and takeaways will be cordoned off to allow the building to be craned into place. Unfortunately this will result in significant disruption for the school and nursery drop off and pick up on these 2 days and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. It is advisable to avoid this area at busy times and park at alternative locations on these dates. PC MacLean has been informed of this and will be aware that parking restrictions on those days may be hard to enforce but asks that if parking in the community you consider the residents of the houses surrounding the school.


Thank You

Hi everyone,

We are having a very busy week continuing with our learning on living things and how they grow.  Our caterpillars have now moved into their new home and are all in their cacoons.  We are so excited to see them as beautiful butterflies which wont be long.  We will keep you updated.  Our seeds are starting to grow as are our butter beans.

Hope you enjoy looking at our photos……

Last week the afternoon nursery sessions got invited up to the hall to watch some of the older boys and girls preform Drumfun songs they had been practicing. The nursery children got a shot of the drums and enjoyed making rythems and a lot of noise 🙂

We had lots of fun last week learning all about Neptune and Comic Relief.

Have a look at our photos to see how busy we were.  We created our own Aliens, sharing our facts on them as well as designing our very own red noses for Comic Relief.  Thank you to all of those who made a kind donation towards this 🙂
