Bookbug for Primary 1

sbt1Yesterday our Primary 1 children were taken into the hall after lunchtime for a special treat . . . A story read by Mrs Caddell.

The Scottish Book Trust have provided each Primary 1 child with a bag including the three shortlisted books for the Scottish Book Awards.

We’ve been reading the stories in class – but it was a surprise when we got our very own bags.

Mrs Caddell read her favourite – ‘Jumblebum’ – but in a few weeks P1 children will get to vote for their favourite.

Share the stories with your child at bedtime, and talk about which book is their favourite and why. We’ll be tracking the book awards in March, so be sure to check back for the result.


We had lots of visitors to our class yesterday. Some children from the nursery came to play with us and listen to a story. We enjoyed showing them around our classroom.

We also had some great Primary 7 storytellers. What a fun afternoon we had!


It was our turn to show at Assembly today so we took along our ‘Fizzy Pop Fairies’ to let everyone see what our wonderful fairies looked like. I think they were all very impressed! They also liked our Fizzy Pop Fairy 5-a-day rhyme.

Children in Need

What a fantastic day it was today in Lochardil. We loved having boys, girls and staff dressed in their pyjamas. The Junior Leaders did a fantastic job with the Pudsey themed games, and Mr Cook was tired out after playing goal-keeper at lunchtime.

With the support of you all, we raised a massive £404.88 – a fantastic total!

Our competition winners were announced at assembly and are on the Pupil Council blog.

Pupil of the month

Well done, Henry, for being chosen as our pupil of the month for October.Always smiling and always working hard, a well-deserved award!


Also, well done to Aidan and Ruairidh who took Zoe Zebra and Floppy’s Fun Pack home at  the weekend. Wonder whose turn it will be next time?


Fizzy Pop Fairies

What a fantastic time we had when the Fizzy Pop Fairies came to visit us.The story was fantastic and there were  lots of magical things going on, like Ryan having a glass of milk poured into his shoe?! It was also good fun making our own fairies from lots of recycled materials.

Remember your ‘5 a day’ and also, remember to  look out for Mischievous Mel. Where can that naughty fairy be, I wonder?
