furnace-and-minard-gruffalo-2Last Friday, while the ‘bigger’ pupils were off learning how to become Digital Leaders, Furnace and Minard ‘littler’ pupils decided to go off on a Gruffalo Hunt to Ardkinglas Gardens to have some outdoor fun and learn some more Scots words. The crispy cold day added to the sense of adventure, especially as we had recently read The Gurffalo’s Child. We followed the little mouse’s directions past Tod’s ‘deep-dooon hoose’, Hoolet’s “tree-tap hoose” and Snake’s “log-hoose”.

wild-about-scotland-1North Bute Primary School had a roaring time when the Wild about Scotland Bus came to Port Bannatyne. The RZSS experts taught our pupils about the skull structure of our native wildlife. We all learnt about conservation that is happening here in Scotland and the children were able to have all of their scientific questions answered. Thanks to the bus we now have so much to investigate ourselves. The children have been inspired to be biologists. Our school quiz was amazing with everyone involved using their new knowledge to gain team points, and win the game. Well done Team Wolves, who won by a whisker!

tower-1P4/3 of St Joseph’s were delighted to attend a private screening of the BFG last week at the local Tower in Helensburgh! A particular treat for any child, but for P4/3 it was a fantastic way of bringing to the big screen their IDL for this term – the BFG! Children were able to walk the distance to the Tower and were so excited to have the opportunity. It was an excellent way to witness excellent community planned partnership and the children are all now ready to further their studies of the book – thanks once again to the personnel of the Tower!
