Portugal in Rannoch!

Today we had a visit from a group of teachers, Educational Psychologists and Head Teachers all the way from sunny Portugal! They were here to have a look at all the fabulous work we do as a school to support our pupils, families and wider school community. During the day our visitors had a tour of the school and look at all our class work, planning and Big Books. They also found out about our Stay and Play sessions and our Parent-IT programme. We made time to have some beautiful cake (thank you Miss McInnes!) and a lovely lunch with all the pupils and staff. We even managed to have a walk around in the snow - which our visitors loved. It was great to find out about school life in Portugal and all about our similarities and differences. We are looking forward to a return visit!

Rannoch Equestrian 26.4.16

This week during our Horsemanship programme we learned how to groom manes and tails, saddle our ponies and mount and dismount correctly - with a bit of help from hippopotamuses, flying tigers and unicorns (ask the pupils!). We went from glorious sunshine to full scale blizzards today, but we all worked very hard and learned a lot about how to protect horses (and ourselves) from the elements. Looking forward to next week! Check out our photos in our gallery.

Rannoch Equestrian

We had a super first practical session with Andy Dewar-McCabe from Rannoch Equestrian today.

We learned how to groom a horse and about all the equipment you need.

We even learned how to get your pony in to the yard so that you can groom them.

We are all looking forward to our next session.

Check our some photos in our gallery.

Parent-IT

We had another super session of our Parent-IT group on Thursday 24th March 2016. The group brought along their ideas from home and had a chance to try out some new apps themselves, before working with their children on the new apps. We are looking forward to our last session on 31.3.16. After this, the group will be working on establishing an online appointment service with a range of Education and Children's Services agencies as well as NHS agencies. Check out our very own Parent-IT website for more details. http://parent-it.blogspot.co.uk/
