Homework Club

There will be no Homework Club next week (17th December 2018) due to no homework going home during the last week of term.

Furthermore, we are delighted with the high number of pupils wishing to attend but with a limited number of supporting adults and space, we are going to need to restrict our capacity to a maximum of 35 pupils for a 6 week block. After this block, we will review and run the homework club again to allow the opportunity for more pupils to attend.  This will allow us to have more individual support time with all the children.

The aim of this club is to help support children who may feel more comfortable completing homework with a teacher on-hand or for children who would enjoy making use of a quiet working environment to complete their homework.

If this is something you feel your child would enjoy/benefit from, then please complete and return the slip that went home in bookbags today. Please remember that some homework tasks are designed for that essential conversation and sharing time between parent and child, for example, the homework tasks set for our younger pupils in P1, who are at just the start of their school journey. Therefore, homework club may not be appropriate for your child’s needs at the moment, but instead might be something they will benefit from in the future.

Homework club spaces will be filled on a first come-first served basis. If your child has previously attended the homework club, please complete and return the form again. This will let us know that your child still wishes to attend and book their space.

It is important that we have an up-to-date register each week so that we can know which children are in our care after school. If there are any changes to collection arrangements, or a week that your child won’t be attending the homework club, please let Miss Shimmield know by email: anna.shimmield@highland.gov.uk

Happy holidays to all when it comes!

Outdoor Carol Service

A reminder that our outdoor carol service takes places on Friday 14th on the MUGA from 2.00pm. All family, friends and members of the MOL community are welcome to attend. There will be songs from all year groups plus some well-known carols to begin and end the service. We are also lucky to have Farquhar Forbes from Inshes Church coming to join us and give a Christmas message.

Entry is via the lower gate to the MUGA and hot drinks (tea, coffee and hot chocolate) with mince pies will be available to keep you warm! Wrap up well and come enjoy some carol singing with us on Friday afternoon!

Lights Camel Action

Well done all our P2, P3 and P4 pupils for your wonderful performance of Lights Camel Action – we are so proud of your achievement performing in front a packed hall of family, friends and fellow pupils for our Senior Citizens show this afternoon. You made us all smile and we were mighty impressed with how well you learnt your words and groovy actions! What a super celebration of the Christmas story working together as a first level team – well done! A huge thank you to all the staff members for working tirelessly to prepare the children involved from P1/2, P2, P2/3, P3, P3/4, P4 and P4/5 for the show – your efforts certainly paid off this afternoon, and thank you to parents for their behind the scenes support also, whether with costume, song practice or script rehearsing – all aspects of the show which came together so well today.  Thank you to everyone who joined us for the afternoon performance – you were a great, enthusiastic audience, so a genuine thank you for your support and generous donations for the school fund and Cancer Research UK, our school’s chosen charity for this session. The final word must go to our first level boys and girls – congratulations on today’s show. We hope you rest well over the weekend ahead of next week’s afternoon and evening performances and look forward to having another chance to see you in action…Lights Camel Action!


Christmas with the Aliens

What fantastic performances put on by our youngest pupils today: MOL’s nursery and P1 children gave their all to put on a great show in front of a large audience of family members and friends who came to enjoy the festive fun! We are very proud of how well everyone learnt their words, songs and dancing – we saw some fantastic flair throughout. Thank you again to the nursery and P1 staff team for their hard work organising and preparing the children for the show and to everyone at home also for helping your young ones to be ready for today, and for coming along to support. We are grateful for the generous donations to the school fund and the school’s chosen charity for this session Cancer Research UK. Lastly thank you to the enthusiastic MOLers for their memorable nativity performance  – it was out of this world!
