Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Visiting Films Sets and Drawing Math Week to a Close…


Today the boys and girls of P4-7, accompanied by Mrs Richardson, took a trip to the beautiful grounds of Dunskey Estate in Portpatrick because something very special was happening – they were using it as a setting for a movie! The Orr-Ewing family were kind enough to invite all the North Rhin’s schools along to have a nosey at what goes on behind the scene of a real life movie set. A once in a lifetime experience for many of us! (Unless of course we have some budding actors in our midst…) Have a look at the photos below to check out the scenes on a glorious outing!

“I like how they made the blood look real on the actors!” – Tylor

“I liked their swords!” – Jack H

Math Week 


The little class today combined their Math and french with a spot of French Number Hopscotch (They are, after all, seasoned professionals at this Hopscoth malarkey now…!) This was a great opportunity to practise their french numbers they have been working on this term with Miss Gibson and put it to use in game form. Looks like a fun time!


The older pupils after a lovely day wandering around film sets simply couldn’t bear to stay indoors and waste the sunshine with Winter on the horizon so took a wander down to the beach to have a bit of math fun! We practised our symmetry in the sand and then we set ourselves an engineering challenge to engage the numeracy side of our brain making mini dens with specific set criteria and we finally ended with some stone skipping (not the most math related thing but certainly good fun!)

Overall, we have all had a fab week celebrating the power of numeracy and seeing how important it is and the impact it has in our daily lives. Thankfully we love Math here and do this all the time at Kirkcolm, regardless of what week it is!
