New appointment

I am delighted to say that a successful appointment was made yesterday to fill the post of Gaelic Medium Teacher when Mrs MacVicar’s secondment comes to an end following the Easter break.  To give the candidate time to inform their school community, I will provide further details next week. The children in class were informed of this today by Mrs MacVicar also.

Equality and Diversity

The Gaelic class worked with Mrs Laird to continue to develop their understanding of Children’s Rights today. We thought about what rights mean and which we knew already. We heard the story ‘I have the right to be a child’ by Alain Serres and then looked at some of the Rights of a Child. In groups, we ordered which we thought were most important to the least. We all had excellent ideas around this before learning that the Rights of the Child are all equal and are indivisible.

Trang a-muigh agus a-staigh/Busy indoors and out!

Tha sinn air a bhith trang ag obair air cumaidhean, chruthaich sinn Celtic roundhouse anns a gharradh chluich le bhith tomhais 5m diameter.  Cha robh e mor!

Cuideachd thadhal sinn air sgoil-araich airson ag obair air litrichean comhla riutha.

Bha sinn a lorg cumaidhean 3 D agus thog sinn roundhouses agus caisteal anns a chlas.

We have been busy indoors and out!  We measured a 5m diameter Celtic roundhouse in the playground and it was not big!  We also looked for 3D in playground, visited our buddies in sgoil-araich for a letter hunt and worked on Celtic houses and Primary 1’s painted a castle.

Fàilte air ais/Welcome back

Fàilte air ais gu teirm ùr.  Tha sinn ag ionnsachadh mu na Ceiltich an teirm seo,  chleachd sinn uinneanan, càl agus spinach airson dath a chuir air aodach.  Tha sinn ag obair air dealbhan dhe teaghlach Cheilteach.

Welcome back to a new term.  We are learning about the Celts this term.  We used red onions, cabbage and spinach to dye some cloth for our Celtic family pictures.

Primary 1’s were sorting in Maths and for Health and Wellbeing week we learnt about how our heart works and how important it is to exercise so that our bodies get plenty oyygen, and our hearts stay healthy.  We did circuits in the hall and checked our pulse afterwards.
