Portree Primary Prize Giving will be held in the Community Centre today and will begin at 9.45am sharp!
On Friday the whole-school took part in a litter pick in various places in and around Portree. I think everyone was pleasantly surprised by the lack of litter there was to pick! Well done everyone! Let’s keep our village tidy!
Lauren Murchison and Emma Gunn from P5/6 created a fairy garden in Gardening club.
This is how they did it.
First we painted the toadstool red and white, then we made a clay door with Mrs MacVicar the art teacher. Mrs MacVicar put it in the kiln to fire it and when it was ready we painted and decorated them.
We got to pick where we wanted it in the garden. We placed the toadstool in the garden and we planted a flower. Finally we put wood around the area and sprinkled sand inside it. It was good fun and we surprised Ingrid and Ginger.

Over this session Primary 3 have been trialling a mental maths program called Sumdog. This has led to increased motivation and accuracy in mental maths. As class teacher it has been fantastic to see how excited the children get about maths. The class have evaluated this program with positive responses – they love it! The school received excellent feedback from parents too.
P3 entered a Highland wide schools contest through the facility of Sumdog. 36 schools took part which included 379 pupils. Daily winner’s – P3 achieved 1st place on Tuesday 9th and 3rd place overall.
