Congratulations to our netball teams who competed in the Sports Festival yesterday evening. One of the teams made it through to the final against Stornoway Primary and won 4-2, crowning them champions. As well as congratulating the girls, we’d like to say thanks to the three parents who have given up their time every week to coach them. Thank you Mrs Macritchie, Mrs Mackay and Mrs Maciver.
GP6/7 and EP5/6 have been studying The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis. They have been reading and critically analysing the text in class and have been coming together for various activities. Throughout the term they have worked together on a project to transform an area of the school into Narnia. Mr Smith, the Art teacher, has worked with both classes to create a spectacular wall display. Both classes have also created 3D objects which has helped in developing their problem solving, planning, creating and designing skills.
Here are some pictures of the early stages of the work.
Sgoil a’ Bhac welcomed back its teaching staff last Monday and the pupils will be joining us for the first day of term on Friday 15th August from 8.40am.
We are looking forward to welcoming our new P1 intake on Friday morning too. The first day for P1’s will be a half-day, ending at 12.15pm. From Monday 18th August, P1s will be in full-time.
