Nursery ICT

In Nursery, supported by our Digital Leader, we are also developing our own web pages just like in big school. This will be a pupil’s own electronic profile which will be added to over his years in school and shared with his family.

Human Body

As part of their learning about the human body, pupils learnt about the circulatory system. They made their own representation of this by drawing round a body and using coloured wools to represent the circulation to and from the heart. They used toy cars and lorries to show how nutrients, oxygen and carbon dioxide are then distributed around the body.

On Friday 8th February, pupils attended a special performance of Mary Grieve’s production ‘Shadowbird’ at the Raasay Gallery. Pupils and staff were both mesmerised and inspired by the beautiful storytelling and performance. After the show, Mary and her dad, Dave, very kindly took time to answer questions and show the pupils in more detail how things were made and how various effects were created. Thank you to Christa and Gordon for very kindly hosting the event.

E-Safety and ICT

On Thursday 6th February Elgol School joined us for a day of ICT skills development and online safety training led by Robert Quigley, Digital Learning and Online Safety Officer. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn together and also to continue to strengthen our links and friendships with other schools. The pupils not only had a very useful ICT training in various Apps including Jamboard, Soundtrap, Book Creator and Padlet but also some very important lessons in how to stay safe online. After school, Robert led a workshop on e-safety for staff and parents. At lunchtime the Elgol pupils and staff joined the Raasay pupils and staff for one of Annabelle’s delicious school lunches.

Film Production

Pupils at Raasay Primary School will shortly be undertaking a project to make a short film about Raasay. They will be looking at all aspects of life on the island; tourism, jobs, the environment, community life etc. In order to make a quality production, they have recently purchased a film/video camera using some of the funds raised from the Coffee Day. They will be learning how to use the camera and then to edit the film to produce the finished article. We look forward to sharing our film with you when it is complete.
