Lagganlia-LogoP7 arrived safely at Lagganlia Outdoor Education Centre, near Aviemore, yesterday lunchtime!

We have settled in to our dorms well, and have been developing independence and life skills through keeping our new home for the week clean, doing dishes and keeping dorms tidy and organised!

We have already done a range of exciting and interesting activities! Last night we carried out a ‘Scatter Course’, a kind of scavenger hunt to get to know the Lagganlia Centre well. Todays activities have included a gorge walk, abseiling, rock climbing, mountain biking and a hill walk.

The children have been recording their thoughts and feelings about their activities in their daily diary time too.

The weather has been mixed- a bit windy today, but that helps to keep the dreaded midges at bay!

We are happy to share just a few of our pictures so far with you below- there has already been some fantastic team work, encouragement, support and determination from our pupils- long may their positive attitude continue! More photos to follow later in the week!

Well Done


A Busy Week @ Broughton!

We had a visit from author E.R. Reilly at our assembly on Monday! He read us some excerpts from his books and gave us story writing tips we can use in our own creative writing and stories.

He held a book signing, where pupils could buy signed copies of some of his stories. Over 50 copies of his books were sold, so he kindly donated a number of free books to the school!

We enjoyed his visit very much!


This week also saw our annual ‘Meet the Teacher’ event. The evening was well attended across the school, and we hope that our parents and carers found it to be a useful and informative event. Power point presentations for each stage will be available to view on individual class pages soon. Watch this space!

Thanks for supporting us with your attendance!

Author Visit to school



The author E.R. Reilly is visiting our school on Monday at Assembly. He will talk to the P3-7 classes about his work and give them ‘top-tips’ for writing stories of their own. This will launch our new approach to teaching Reading at Broughton which you will hear more about at ‘Meet the Teacher’ on Tuesday.

E.R Reilly’s books are suitable for all children. From ‘Rashnu’, which is especially suited to younger readers, through to ‘Tall Tales’, where a girl ventures into the woods to rescue her pet dog.
You can visit the website at: where you can read extracts from the books and see videos of Eamonn teaching children to write stories.

If you would like to purchase one of the books please fill in the slip below and return it to school.
