Seachdain Spòrsail

Tha sinn air a bhith trang an t-seachdain seo, seo sinn a’ feuchainn ri ’g iasgach airson litrichean! Cuideachd fhuair sinn a-mach cò na buddies againn ann an sgoil-àraich agus thadhal sinn orra an-diugh. Ann an Saidheans tha sinn air a bhith ’g ionnsachadh mar a dh’fhuiricheas sinn air Mars agus rinn sinn domes airson àite-fuirich.

Cuairt air Loch Nis

Bha sinn air Loch Nis an-diugh agus abair latha àlainn a bh’ann. Thug Mgr Matheson sinn suas an locha suas thairis air Caisteal Urchadain. ‘ S e latha anabarrach math a bh’ann agus fhuair sinn uile cothrom a’ stiùireadh cuideachd! Fhuair sinn a-mach cho domhainn sa tha an locha agus bha seo air an sonar anns a’ bhàta. Bha e sgoinneil! We were out on Loch Ness today. Mr Matheson took us out on his boat and what a fantastic day it was. We all got a shot of steering the boat as well! We found out how deep the loch is and we could see it on the sonar in the boat. It was amazing!

Teirm trang!/Busy term!

Tha sinn air a bhith trang an teirm seo. Thadhal sinn air an Exhibition Centre agus bha madainn snog againn an sin ag ionnsachadh mu Niseag agus na h-oidhirpean a tha air a bhith ann Niseag a lorg! Bha am bàta ‘Loch Ness Morar project’ ann agus bha e inntinneach ga fhaicinn. Fhuair sinn goody bag cuideachd! Ionnsaich sinn mu stòiridh sa bhìoball – ‘Tower of Babel’ agus rinn sinn na tùran againn fhèin le marshmallows agus spaghetti. Cuideachd tha Clas 1 air a bhith trang ag ionnsachadh cùnntais. We have had a very quick and busy term. We visited the Exhibition Centre where we spent a nice morning learning about all the attempts to see Nessie. The ‘Loch Ness Morar project’ boat was there which was very interesting to see. We also got good bags to take home! We learnt about the ‘Tower of Babel’ story in the bible and made our own towers out of marshmallows and spaghetti. Primary 1’s have been busy learning their numbers.
