Lots of glitter has been used in the making of Christmas decorations and angels in primary 2 this week. I’d like to wish p2 a very happy holidays and hope they have a wonderful time at Christmas. See you in the new year, Miss Laing x

It has been a very busy but very happy time in Primary 1. The Christmas Show was a very exciting, then the P1 party was a lot of fun, especially when Santa came to visit. Then, this morning, when we all arrived in class, our room was in a mess with toys and water bottles scattered on the floor. There was much pondering about what had made the mess and eventually we found out…

Santa emailed Mrs MacInnes to apologise for the behaviour of some of his naughty reindeer! Instead of going out training for the long journey on Christmas Eve, three of the reindeer came into our class and had a bit of fun. Santa even sent us the video evidence! Primary 1 are now ready to go home after our school Talent Show this afternoon and enjoy Christmas with their families. Merry Christmas everyone!

P3/4 are extremely creative with the junk and other building materials in class. This morning during golden time everyone was constructing something; from a fabulous mansion for the finger puppets to Lego models and clay Christmas dinners with carrots and sprouts. Excellent problem solving and engineering skills!


As part of our RotaKids activities, P6 collected food items for a reverse advent calendar which we donated to the Nairn Food Bank. The children wanted to help those less fortunate than themselves and give something back to the local community. Representatives from the local rotary club and the food bank explained to the children there were families in our area who would benefit from this act of kindness

P5 had lots of fun at their Christmas party; I was very impressed by their dancing. I saw a few unique moves pulled on the dance floor too… 🙂 All the P5 classes partied really well together as one big team 🙂 Mrs Amos.

As part of our topic work, we looked at democracy and the election process. We held a mock election – all parties were represented!

At the end of our novel study, we watched the film version of Holes. This enabled us to compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the characters, setting and plots.

We also visited the church learning about The Christmas Story – part of our RME topic. We would like to thank the organisers for giving us the opportunity to learn in such an interactive and fun way!

Christmas has arrived in primary 2! The children have been making some gorgeous Christmas decorations for our class tree, practising hard for their song in the Christmas show and have been entertained each morning by our naughty class Elf on the Shelf!

This morning, GM 2-3 and Primary 3 showed off their impressive dancing skills! They have been learning the Canadian barn dance and Strip the Willow for their Christmas parties.

Everyone had great fun and Miss Walker, Mrs Coutts and Mrs Smith were very impressed when they even managed the progressive Canadian barn dance!! Well done to you all, we are very excited for your party!

Gach madainn, bidh clas 1 a’ brosnachadh diofar sgillean leis a bhith a’ cluich agus ag obair còmhla. Dh’ obraich iad air a bhith a gabhail cothroman agus ag obair ri chèile.

Each morning, GM1 work on various skills when having ‘soft start’. This morning they showed great co-operation skills, taking turns and working together when playing various games. All of these are very important in class! Fìor mhath clàs 1. Well done GM1.

We have been creating pieces of art to represent the different types of celebrations and festivals there are.
