Roll up, roll up 10 days to go!

Crown Summer Fayre 2018

This week we are looking for your donations of toys, items for the tombola and your filled jam jars.  Please hunt out some bottles to bring in next week for our bottle stall.  Classes need to fill their hampers, please check your child’s class blog to see which items they need.

We have some great prizes for the raffle, but if you are able to source any more from local businesses or upcoming events, please let us know.  (Remember to return the raffle ticket stubs with your raffle money, especially if you cannot make the day).

On the morning of the fayre we need some strong helpers to help put up the gazebos, from around 9am.  Please come along if you can, even for half an hour – thank you!

Any offers of help please contact me at Jackie@highlanddog.com

Digital Learning Week

This week was digital learning week across Scotland and Crown were involved in two digital stories!

P3 and P3/4 were picked, the only school from Highland, to take part in the Education Scotland digital story.  There were 30 schools from across Scotland picked to be part of this, with each school taking their turn to add to the story.  P3 and P3/4 were second to last in contributing their ideas and it was their job to start rounding the story off ready for the last school to write the final chapter.  The children were amazing and came up with lots of ideas and could have gone on forever!  Once the story is complete, Education Scotland will share it with everyone so we have to wait until then to see how the story ends.

Another story that was doing the rounds this week was among our ASG (Associated Schools Group).  Crown, Daviot, Raigmore and Strathdearn Primaries also wrote their own story using google docs.  P3/4 were given a starter and then had to get the story going before passing it to Daviot.  Across the week, each class/school contributed to the story and then shared it with the next school.  It was finished today and is now ready to read.  P3/4, P7M and P7S took part in this Millburn ASG event this week.  Nessie seemed to get up to lots of adventures!

Outdoor Classroom Day

What a wonderful day we had for our Outdoor Classroom Day yesterday.  Thank you to all of the parents who came along to help out and to all of the classes who threw themselves into it.  It was like a ghost town inside the building!

There were so many activities going on across the day and I have only managed to capture a few in the photos below.  We had an assault course, gardening, story telling, poetry, journey/story sticks, bikes, Jackson Pollock art, natural art, weaving, parachute games, bubble science, mapping, fractions, angles, information handling, shape and pattern, symmetry, and so much more…

Car Park Near Miss

Please note that no car or taxi should be using the school entrance in front of the barrier for drop offs.

Pupils cross the gate area constantly and need safe access and this area needs to be clear to allow staff cars to enter the car park safely.

Many thanks.

Primary Engineering Celebration Event 2018

Well done P7 – we are so proud of you!

Primary 7 S

A massive WELL DONE to P7’s eight engineering finalists who competed in the Primary Engineering Celebration Event today. After weeks and weeks of planning, building and testing their model cars, they finally put them to the test against many other schools from the Inverness area. The judges assessed the cars on performance and design as well as interviewing the teams to learn more about their design process.

The competition was tough but Crown Primary’s very own Team Cirex came first overall in their category! Congratulations to everyone who took part – the future of STEAM is looking very bright at Crown!
