Argyll & Bute may be geographically vast but that doesn’t prevent us from making the most of connections between schools to allow pupils the opportunity to learn co-operatively. On Friday 21st April five P4 pupils from Kirn Primary School in Cowal travelled with their teacher Mr Mair to join the Minard Primary School pupils in some outdoor learning activities in Minard Primary, near Inveraray. The Minard pupils were delighted to welcome pupils from far flung Cowal to share in the outdoor learning opportunities which are on their doorstep.
Mrs Goodwin Principal Teacher and Mrs Corner at Minard led the outdoor learning. Firstly we played some team building games and made journey sticks and then after lunch we visited Crarae Gardens which are local to Minard. There we took the pupils on the Himalayan Glen trail walking through the foothills, identifying different plants and trees as we walked. Kirn pupils were wonderful visitors and would be welcome back to Minard any time.
