What Makes Crown Unique?

This year a group of pupils from P4 – P7 have been working with children in Nursery – P7, their families and staff to answer the question ‘What Makes Crown Unique?’.

The ‘What Makes Crown Unique?’ group have worked together to create a video to capture Crown Primary School. They’ve done this through writing a clever narrative, creating some super animations and demonstrating some skillful camera techniques.

The video will sit as part of the school’s rationale for children, their families, staff and any visitors we have along the way.

We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Hockey news

Just a quick reminder that the hockey team will meet in the school hall from 3 – 3:30 next Friday 31 March, to hand out hockey strips for the Inverness Hockey competition on Saturday 1st April.

It will be held at the Astro pitch beside Inverness Leisure.

As yet we have not got any event information regarding times but we will be in touch with a formal letter as soon as we do!

We have got fabulous new strips to wear so we will be looking good !!

We will not be playing hockey next Friday so please make sure your child knows their arrangements for going home.

Crown Springs into the Weekend

Ms MacDonald had the pleasure of P 4/5 this afternoon. They had worked so hard to give quality feedback on each other’s work. As a reward I thought we would sneak out into the sunshine for 10 min…I’m delighted to say lots of other classes had the same idea. Fun in the sun!

Celebrations at Cross Country!

We are very proud of all our athletes at the McRobert Cup today! What a bunch of STARS! Great sporting attitudes and generosity of spirit reported by Miss Rae and Mrs McCormick. That’s what we want Crown pupils to be know for.

Each race had over 100 pupils from many different schools. The P4/P5 male race had 185 racers! Everyone showed that they had been training hard and put in maximum effort despite cold and wet conditions. 

We had some AMAZING individual successes- Killian (P3) 4th place; Will (P3) 6th place, Hannah and Freya (P5)  were 8th and 9th;  Max S (P5/6) 5th and Jake (P7) 2nd. Wowzers!

All our P2/3 girls finished in the top 50% of runners. 

Team medals- P2/3 boys got  bronze, P4/5 girls also got bronze.  Well done to all! Thanks again to Miss Rae, Mrs McCormick and Miss Gray for the time they have given to training!

Learning Assembly

Some of the photos from our first Learning Assembly today.

Each class shared what they have been learning and everyone learnt something new!

Well done to all our speakers.

All the staff were most impressed at the variety of creative learning experiences that were shared.

There was much clapping and many dance moves to our new friendship song too!


Red Nose Day

We recently enjoyed the chance to dress up for World Book Day. 

In 2 weeks we will have finished our sponsored walk.

While we do still have some Red Noses left at £1, please note we will not be doing anything as a school this year. Our main fundraiser wil be our sponsored walk, so no costumes required for this Friday/ Red Nose Day!
