We had a marvellous day today.
We have all been focusing on Water today.
We started the day with an assembly which encouraged us to save water. See the ‘Let’s Go Save Water Song’ here.
We also had a visit from the Flood management Engineers from Aberdeen City Council who awarded prizes for the Water Safety Leaflet competition that was held for P3-P7.
The winners are pictured with Calum and Will.
Classes then set off to do different activities:
P4 went pond dipping at the Burnie. We were supported by Jen the Country Ranger and a group of parents who were fantastic at pond dipping! They had a great time in the Burnie!
Jane, our Eco Parent Rep, joined us for all of the pond dipping sessions which was a huge support for the children and the teachers – thank you.
Some of the children made Nature Art too! Can you see the Stick Man and The Crocodile?
Cordelia Menmuir from SEPA Floodline came to play the Flood Game with P5/6, P6 and P7. The children had to decide on the areas that would be prone to flooding and decide where things would be in a town that floods.
P5/6 were awarded the Puddles mascot for putting in so much effort into the activity – well done P5/6!
Primary 1 and the Early Learning Classes had fun exploring with water today. They were splashing, pouring, sinking, floating and best of all – learning!
Primary 5 also went out Pond Dipping to the Burnie. They were fantastic at finding all the wee creatures that live in the Burnie. They also created a Nature Art Gallery and Museum!
Primary 3 went with Jen the Countryside ranger in the afternoon. The Burnie had filled up with all the rainwater but they still had fun and found lots.
