Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

P1-4 go to Dumfries House for the Day!


On Wednesday P1-4 ventured to Dumfries House in Cumnock for a fun-filled school trip in the sunshine (and snow for some of the day)! The first activity we enjoyed was ‘Animal Senses’ where we put our own senses to the test in some sticky, smelly and tasty activities. We then investigated animals’ senses and diets and found out how marine life use their senses to hunt for food. This led us on nicely to the topic of plastic pollution and its effect on marine life where the boys and girls blew Nia (the co-ordinator) away with all the information they had learned from Ms Whorlow’s weekly assemblies 🙂.We learned about how to correctly separate and recycle rubbish using the different bins – I am sure they could even keep mums and dads right with the red and blue bins now! 😂We then braved the ever-changing weather conditions, to go to our next workshop on.. ‘The Weather’ 🙂!  We spoke about  the Beaufort Wind scale and how it can be used to measure the speed and the wind – we even managed a bit of running however it is fair to say that none of us were in fact ‘faster than the wind’! We used bubbles to decide on the wind direction, as you can imagine these were a BIG hit!! 😄We then finished off a lovely day with a trip to the Adventure Playground, where we let off a bit of steam before our nice sunny and sleepy bus home.
