This term P1B have been learning about 'My Home, Our Island.' When they were exploring in the Castle grounds they found the Gruffalo and a letter saying he wanted to find out more about the Isle of Lewis.  On Thursday 28th of March the Gruffalo and P1B went to visit and feed  the Alpacas, the Callanish Stones and the Gearannan Blackhouse village, were we also had lunch. It was a very windy day out but we had lots of fun.  P1B would like to thank Archie's Dad and Rowan and Flynn's Mum for coming with us. 

RNLI Assembly - Tue 26th March 2019 DI and John came to tell us about the work they do on the lifeboat. Mrs Macleod and Miss Maclean got to try on the clothes they wear! We enjoyed their visit and learned a lot. We presented them with a cheque for £378.42. This was raised from the proceeds of our most recent free dress Friday. Thank you to all those who contributed!
