Summer Fayre 2019

Milton of Leys Primary School

This week sees our MOL Summer Fayre on Thursday May 30th from 4-7pm! We have loads of exciting stalls lined up to keep everyone busy and entertained, including such favourites as the tombola, raffle, lucky dip, BBQ, hook a duck, beat the goalie, zorb balls, sponge the teacher and even, for 2019, the return of gunge the headteacher!

P6 and P5/6 pupils have been working extremely hard to pull this event together and we are grateful to them, the wider school and staff who have worked hard preparing for the fayre. We would still appreciate further contributions for the fayre – this includes prizes for the raffle, filled jars for the jar stall, teddies and general prizes for the teddy and general tombola.

Wear Yellow Day Friday May 31st

Milton of Leys Primary School

This year we are supporting Highland Hospice’s Wear Yellow Day on Friday 31st May. This means everyone is welcome to come to school wearing yellow on Friday in exchange for a donation for the Highland Hospice.

There will also be sunflower pin badges, wristbands and balloons on sale, each for a suggested donation of £1.00. These will also be available to purchase on Thursday at the summer fayre as well as raffle tickets for a dedicated Highland Hospice L’Oreal hamper, the proceeds from which will go to Highland Hospice.

Highland Hospice is a charity close to the hearts of many in our community and we are pleased to be able to show MOL’s support for it in this one-off appeal. Thank you in advance for your support as we join in turning the Highlands yellow for one day!

End to health and well being week

P1/2 have had such a super, busy week full of health and well being activities. To finish off we were super lucky to have Mrs Mulraine in to teach us some yoga and Pilates. We loved learning all the different poses and how to relax. Look at some of our own poses we made up.

We then enjoyed learning to play frisbee golf with p2. It was tricky to get the frisbee into the tyre but we were pros by the end getting “frisbee in ones”😀

Buzzy Bee and orienteering

P2 took part in generation science this morning and enjoying learning more about bees and pollination. We were able to use all our facts that we have learnt in class to help us! We had great fun pollinating flowers, learning the waggle dance and what flowers look like from bee’s eyes!

Then in the afternoon we enjoyed working in groups to take part in orienteering. We did well using maps and listening to each other.

Day 2 – get on your bike!

Second day of our health and well being week and what a busy day!

Today we used a bike to make smoothies! We used different fruits and had to crank the pedals to blend it altogether and it tasted delicious!!!

Then we had our sports and everyone participated so well and put lots of effort into each race. Well done!!

Sports Day Update-STILL ON!

Milton of Leys Primary School

Having taken a very close look at the latest weather forecast, we have made the decision to CONTINUE with the planned Sports Day today.

As a reminder, the timings are:

P5-7 at 9.30am

P3 and P4 at 11.30am

P1 and P2 at 1.45pm

As you may have seen from the forecast, it is a little questionable at certain times of the day so should things take a dramatic turn for the worse, we may have to abandon ship, but at present, we plan to proceed as intended!

The next planned update will be at 11am at which time we will provide further update on the plans.

Thanks for bearing with us as we face the wrath of the Weather Gods!
