The Topic in P3B this year has been to improve and care for our School Environment. We cleared out the raised beds, went to our local supermarket and selected suitable plants to brighten our School playground. We are going to have a lot of building work going on very soon and we thought the gardens would cheer people up in the midst of the major refurbishment. P3B enjoyed every minute of their gardening activities and met some snails, which they then wrote wonderful stories about. They then thought of very interesting ways to discourage them from our beautiful garden!

The project has been a homework topic this term and children have taken the theme of a healthy, balanced lifestyle and turned it into a business venture.

A few weeks ago, one of our older pupil’s had the fantastic idea of doing a sponsored walk to raise money for Learning Centre funds, particuarly to buy new outdoor equipment and toys. The LC2 class planned and organised the walk in consultation with the head teacher. We used Google maps to plan our route – it was 2.5 miles from the school to the Sandbank swing park which we thought was perfect. We wrote to parents, made posters which the younger children in LC1 helped to decorate, and carried out a risk assessment.

It was Achaleven Primary’s turn to organised Sports Day this year for their school along with Barcaldine, Kilchrenan, Lismore and Strath of Appin schools.

The pupils from Achaleven designed all the games and an active warm-up to get everyone ready. Although there was a bit of rain it didn’t dampen spirits and lots of fun was had and friendships made. You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain!! Continue reading »

Kirn Primary’s P3/2 and Mrs Taylor were so pleased to welcome Walter Lee from the charity RNLI to our class as part of our seaside topic. Walter spoke about the work of the RNLI, and how their members are prepared to brave high winds and heavy seas 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to save people in trouble! What we didn’t know was that they don’t get any wages, they are volunteers so we decided to raise some money to help. We held a ‘design-your-own-welly’ competition which cost 50p to enter, and had a ‘Wear Your Wellies!’ day with a £1 donation if you did.

We raised £124!! Thank You to everyone who donated to this very worthy cause
