Cross Country MONDAY 19th MARCH P4-7

Mrs Woodhouse has organised the annual cross country activity for P4-7.  This takes place on Monday 19th March so all pupils will need their P.E kit and suitable outdoor trainers.  Pupils will be running in year groups starting with P4 pupils.  If we have inclement weather the activity will be rescheduled to Tuesday 20th March.  Have fun!

Street Struck Dance

P4/5 showed amazing creativity during the Street Struck Dance taster session.  We learnt a dance routine then were able to add in our own freestyle dance.  Miss MacDonald was very impressed with the range and style of freestyle dance at the end of the routine.  This included cartwheels, forward rolls, shimmies and break dancing :-)!  Classes will take place in Blairbeg Hall on Tuesday afternoons.

Well done to Alicia for representing P4/5!

Science Week

P4/5 had a very interesting visit from Lorna at the Scottish Dolphin Centre at Speybay.  We learned more about the whales & dolphins that visit our area and we were amazed at the size of a minke whale.  We also looked at marine litter and the problems this causes for all living things in the seas and oceans.  The food chain game showed us how plastic pollution affects all living things.  We then looked at ways we can help stop plastic pollution.


We will continue learning more about plastic pollution this week.  Can your child remember why these figures/ numbers are relevant?

Tattie Project 2018

The Eco Committee are getting ready to start this year’s tattie growing projects.  We will  be growing our own potatoes and selling seed potatoes to our school community.  If you would like to buy some seed potatoes please put order form and correct money in an envelope and return to school by Friday 16th March.  These will be collected from classes by our Eco reps.  Monies raised will go towards further growing projects in our school.

Happy growing and thank you for your support!

World Book Day 2018

Glenurquhart Primary worked brilliantly as a team today!  We enjoyed working in our house groups and completing activities in each class. The Loch Ness Monster made a quick appearance.  House groups worked together to plan and tell a short story about Nessie’s holiday.  We enjoyed a visit from the local RNLI volunteers and asked some very good questions. Great work from all!
