Term 3 and all is well underway at MOL…

What a busy time with lots of new learning and fun we’ve been having at MOL! Amongst other things, there has been impressive skills development with musical apps, creative guitar and music making, discovering more about the US civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jnr, incredible research into the phases of the moon (with the help of oreos!), buddying, outdoor play, partnering a Shetland school to learn more about communities in different places and planning the learning about the Titanic.

We’re looking forward to seeing many of you at the school on Monday for the P5/6, P6 and P6/7 (P6s of P6/7) assembly – doors open at 2.00pm. Meantime, have a look at the pictures below to see some of what’s been going on at MOL!

Happy Weekend!


Positive Relationships at MOL

Following last week’s Parent Council meeting, we are pleased to be able to share the school’s Positive Relationships draft policy. This policy updates the school’s behaviour management policy and sets out the school’s current approaches linked to Highland Council guidance. As it sets out in the draft policy we are working on a blueprint which encapsulates the information found in the draft policy, and which will also be shared with parents and the wider community.

If you have any queries or suggestions regarding the policy, please do not hesitate to email me at meg.snedden@highland.gov.uk

Thank you, Mrs Snedden

Playground today

Please be aware that the playground is still icy this morning. The gates are open for the children to come to school as usual but please take care on the paved areas.

The door beside the hall is open again this morning for children to be dropped off directly into the school building instead of going through their class decking doors.

Thank you

Snowy morning
