We wish her all the best in Glen Urquhart Primary! We also had lots of children receiving certificates today, and the Gaelic Cup went to a P1 pupil.

Big Fish Little Fish

Inverness family fun

Good afternoon,

My name is Kirstie and I am the Regional Manager of Scotland, running multi award family events called Big Fish Little Fish. We call our events ‘family raves’ – they are essentially festival feel events held in the afternoon, with DJs and music catering for the parents (but child-friendly), whilst also offering crafting and play activities for the children.

We try to make them truly fun events for all the family to enjoy.  We were lucky enough to be awarded winner of ‘Best Family Event’ 4 years in a row at the Family Arts Festival awards, and ‘Best Family Entertainment’ for the 2018 Hoop Awards.

We launched at Ironworks in Inverness in February to sell out success and are returning next week on 20 May.

La Mor nan Leabhraichean

Abair gu robh latha air leth againn airson Là Mòr nan Leabhraichean. Bha e sgoinneil uiread de phàrantan fhaicinn aig an ‘Bracaist Leughadh’ a’ leughadh gu na cloinne. Tapadh leibh airson tighinn a-steach, tha sinn an dòchas gun do chòrd e ribh uile!

‘S e ‘Share a Story’ an iomairt a bh’air Là Mòr nan Leabhraichean am bliadhnasa agus fhuair clann clas 4-7 cothrom a bhith ag aithris sgeulachdan gu clas 1-3. Dh’ obraich na clasaichean gu cruaidh air na sgeulachdan aca le bhith cruthachadh pupaidean, dealbhan ‘s ag ullachadh na taisbaidhean aca.  Rinn iad fìor mhath agus chòrd e gu mòr ri na clasaichean 1-3 a bhith ag’ èisteachd ruitha.  Bha cuideachd tòrr spòrs aig na clann ag’ obair ann an clasaichean measgaichte air diofar gnìomhan leughaidh.

Thachair rudeigin neonach san fheasgar gè-ta! Chaidh na Wallys uile air chall ‘s bh’aig na sgoilearan rin lorg! Bha tòrr spòrs aig na clann (sna tidearsan a bha air am falach) a’ feuchainn rin tidsearan a lorg sa ghàrradh-chluiche.   Gu fòrtanach fhuair na clann lorg air na tidsearan air fad agus tha iad a-nis air-ais anns na clasaichean ag obair gu cruaidh!

Airson crioch a chuir air an latha trang againn, bha co-thional againn airson fhaighinn a-mach cò bhuannaich an co-fharpais airson an aodach-breige as fheàrr agus an Storybox as fheàrr. Chi sibh anns na dealbhan cho doirbh a bha e a’ taghadh oir rinn a h-uile duine deagh oidhirp.


What a day we had for World Book Day! It was great to see so many parents in reading with the children for our ‘Reading Breakfast’.  Thank you for coming in and we hope you enjoyed the morning and we would appreciate any feedback you have about the day.

This year’s campaign for World Book Day was ‘Share a Story’ and the p4-7 classes got the opportunity to share stories with P1-3. The classes work very hard on their storytelling by making puppets, pictures and preparing their presentations.  They did very well and P1-3 enjoyed listening to their stories.  The children also enjoyed the opportunity to work in mixed classes on different reading tasks.

Something strange happened in the afternoon! All the Wallys went missing and the pupils had to go find them!  The children (and the teachers who were hiding) had lots of fun in the Where’s Wally Hunt trying to find the teachers in the playground.  Fortunately all the teachers were found and they have returned to working hard in the classes.

To end the busy and fun day, we had an assembly to announce the winners of the Fancy dress competition and the Storybox competition. You will see from the pictures that it was very difficult to choose the winners as everyone made a huge effort!


An t-seachdain seo aig co-thional, chuala sinn à na comataidhean sgoile. Dh’innis muinntir na comataidhean dè tha iad air a bhith a’ dèanamh anns na buidhnean aca.

Chuala sinn cuideachd clasaichean 4 gu 7 a’ leughadh na bàrdachdan aca. Bha iad dìreach sgoinneil. ‘S math a rinn iad an-diugh aig an Fhèill chiùil.

This week at assembly, we heard from the school committee groups. The groups told us all about what they have been learning about in their committee lessons.

We also heard P4-7 perform their poetry pieces for the Inverness Music Festival. Well done to all who took part in the festival over the last few days.
