We have been growing potatoes and carrots in the nursery garden. These were ready to be eaten so we went out to dig them out of the soil. The children had great fun finding the potatoes from the soil and pulling the carrots out.
Yesterday we visited Primary One to read them the story that we all wrote together called The flying boat. We all enjoyed this when Mrs MacDonald read this to everyone. The children in Primary One had all written their own stories and we listened to them. This was good fun. We are learning about stories having a beginning, middle and end.
On Friday 13th October come along and join Mrs Muhammad and a group of nursery and P1 pupils for a chatter. Mrs Muhammad will lead a very short session of games and fun to help you support your child’s speaking and vocabulary development. Come along to the school library for 11am and join in the fun. You can stay on in the dining hall and help yourself to a cuppa and a chat with other parents till pick up time.
Nursery and P1 and P2 parents are especially welcome. Everyone welcome.
Thank you so much to all the parents who contributed cakes, and to all those who came along and bought them.
Well done to the P6s for doing such a great job of organising everything. Excellent job!
The school photographer will be here on Thursday 5th October. She will start with the nursery children and we will work our way up the classes. Your child can have his/her photo taken with brothers/ sisters and individually.
Afternoon nursery children with a sibling in the primary can pop along in the morning to have a family photo.
There is no obligation to buy the photos but we do receive a small commission which goes to school funds .
We will do our best to keep the children clean and beautiful for their photos. School uniforms as usual please-you all look so smart.!
Loretto will hold it Sports Day on Friday 16th June. The children will compete in Houses to earn points for both their House and themselves. These points will be added to the House Points already earned throughout the year. The Winning House and the Sports Champions will be announced at our Celebration of Achievement at the end of term. This year there will be a few changes to our usual format as we plan to have more races. Unfortunately, there will not be time for adult races. The children will be given House badges but can wear House colours if they wish. We are still in need of parent helpers, so if you can help, please give your name to the school office. We still require ten adult helpers. All helpers should meet with Mrs Ramage on the football pitch at 9am on Friday. Thank you for your support.
On a very hot Thursday, almost 20 children from Loretto represented the school at an Athletics Comp @ Meadowmill. Conditions were unusual for an outdoor sports event in Scotland! Not what we are used to. Fortunately, we had come well prepared with caps, sunscreen and water and luckily there was also sunscreen and water provided. Our team did their very best and encouraged each other to run fast, throw far and jump high. It was a great team effort and our relay teams did very well. Loretto managed to be amongst the medal winners. We won both the P6 girls High Jump and the P6 girls 160m. Thanks to Mrs Sellwood who prepared the pupils. The girls will receive their medals at a whole school assembly. Well Done.
