Just a quick reminder to all of my French class…please remember your swimming gear on Monday as we are off to the Aquadome for our first swimming session. We will be going every monday morning up until the christmas break; including the first monday back in January. Looking forward to it!
Can’t believe holidays are over. Everyone is back and ready to work hard this term.
Today we were looking at “puns ” in preparation for our writing tomorrow. For homework we would like you to write a pun about what you would like to be when you grow up like the ones we looked at in class. Remember a pun is the use of a word or words that either have multiple meanings or sound like other words, the result of which is humorous.
eg When I grow up I want to be a doctor, but I might not have the patients!!!
The Parent Council have prepared a tea towel for Lochardil Primary School. The school opened for it’s first session in August 1964. So, after all the hard work from the children, teachers and staff at the school we are delighted to offer for sale two different Lochardil Primary School Tea Towels. One towel is for P1 – P3 and the second is for P4 – P7.
Whilst the towels will be available to buy later in the year, you can pre-order your towels now to ensure that you are able to get one (or 2 or 3!) which will make great Christmas presents.
Order forms will be available from the school from Monday 30th September.
Please follow the links to view the towels and access the order form.
The Lochardil Hockey team played really well at the tournament on Saturday. In the first league they played 4 games and had 3 wins and 1 draw, putting them equal 1st with Dalneigh. Unfortunately Dalneigh went through to the play off for the cup as they had scored 2 more goals than us. In the two play off games we had one win and our only loss, putting us in 5th place out of 15 teams. Mrs Campbell is very proud of the way they played and conducted themselves through out the tournament.
Everyone in P6/7 just want to say a massive thank you to all that contributed to our Coffee Afternoon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. We were overwhelmed by the number of cakes brought in by pupils and parents – so thank you all very much. We now have to count all the money we raised which will go towards helping people who are fighting cancer.
We made a whopping £822!! It’s fantastic, so well done!
Here are some pictures from the afternoon . . . thank you again,
From all the pupils in P6/7, Mrs Macleod, Mrs Prentice and Miss Shaw.
A reminder that the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon, organised by the P6/7s, is tomorrow, Friday 27th September 1.45pm – 2.45pm. There are 3 ways in which you can support the event:
1. Provide baking for the Coffee Afternoon – to be handed in Friday morning
2. Attend the Coffee Afternoon – Friday 27th September – 1.45pm – 2.45pm

We designed posters for our coffee afternoon next week which you will see displayed around the school. Remember to invite mums and dads, grans and grandpas, uncle Fred…..but not the dog. We also need loads of baking for everyone to buy.Yum! Yum! Can’t wait!
Another successful friction experiment…..nearly! Lots of groups learned from last time and we saw good ideas and excellent experimental practice from fabulous budding scientists.
Reminder for those of you who are heading off to Drummond tomorrow to bring a jacket in case it is wet.
Today we attempted to make a model car go as far as it could by itself. We used balloons and plastic bands to power it along. It wasn’t as easy as we thought!!!!!!!! Making a car was easy, blowing up the balloon was easy but it wasn’t easy to attach the two together to make the car go. The furthest we got was 84cm. Tomorrow’s attempts can only get better!!
For ‘Writer’s Craft’ today we were looking at how adjectives can improve our writing.
We studied a piece of writing by JK Rowling and extracted all her fabulous adjectives to see how dull and boring the passage was without them.
For homework tonight we want you to improve or ‘up-level’ the following sentence: The lady travelled into town to buy clothes.
Try to make this sentence as ‘juicy’ as you can!!!
First week over already! What a lot we have achieved. We have complted our topic plan on forces, and decided what we want to learn.
Our questions are – How can I make my model car go
faster? What factors make things float or sink? Anyone able to lend their expertise will be much appreciated!
In art today we studied how to draw eyes in detail.
WOW! Haven’t done a super job.
Big Brother is watching us!
