Easter egg decorating competition – Each year we ask the children to decorate a hard-boiled egg in class. These are then judged and a winner and a runner up from each year receive an Easter egg at our assembly. Children are asked to bring an undecorated hard-boiled egg on Wednesday, 3rd April. They can also bring in egg cups/holders and extra art materials if they wish. The school will provide glue, paint and various art resources so that everyone can create something in the time given. (Polystyrene eggs can be provided for anyone who requires an alternative e.g. for allergies.)
Well done to all of the Glenurquhart Primary school children who took part in this year’s McRobert Cup! An extra special well done goes to our Primary 4/5 team – who were all feeling nervous and excited about taking part.
We missed you all in class today but knew that you would all be doing your best in your races!
Unfortunately, I never managed to get a photo of them on their return, but here is a team photo before they left. 🙂
Last week we celebrated British Science Week, with lots of science experiences.
On Monday, we participated in three science experiments with P3/4 and the Gaelic class; making bridges out of paper and sticky tape, using our prediction skills with different teas and comparing different toothpastes and creating graphs to present them.
The children used lots of scientific skills including observing, predicting, exploring, comparing and evaluating to name a few.
As part of the Science Key Assessment Task, the P4/5 had to create, design and fly their paper aeroplanes. Recording needs to be made to predict how far it would travel and then identify the actual distance they flew to. The children discussed the difference between their notes.
The Key Assessment Tasks will be going home on Wednesday for you to see! 🙂
For World Book Day, the children were very excited to bring in their books from home.
We had lots of opportunities to DEAR – Drop Everything And Read – this was very popular with the children!
We also spent some time reading our books to others and talking about them.
Here are some of our World Book Day photos! 🙂
P1/2, P3,4,5 & P6/7Digital Leaders taught their friends how to complete simple coding instructions. They had lots of fun with Angry Birds and Harvester games!
Alex and Lynn gave us a very warm and friendly reception on our visit to the new Scotmid store. The children were shown around including the very exciting security cameras! They had a chance to hear about the co-operatives and see the new economic fridges. Then they had a chance to be the customer and the staff before being given some free fruit to take back with them. Thanks to all for making it such a wonderful visit. We look forward to working more with the store in the future.

Apologies for the previous message regarding Athletics. There WILL be athletics today for those who are competing in the McRobert Cup, but only for the children that are in Primary 4, 5, 6 or 7.
Apologies again, for the confusion.
