The squares have been working on the ‘removal strategy’ within subtraction. Tommy shows great understanding of this and even moved onto subtracting 5 digit numbers by 5 digit numbers using this strategy! Go Tommy!
Our star writers in Primary 6 this week were Leon Donnelly, Sophie McKinnon and Erin Morrison. They wrote a fantastic book review about Matilda – well done guys!!
Our pupil of the week in Primary 6 is Eryn Robertson. Eryn has managed to learn all her lines for the school show which is fantastic as she plays a significant role! Well done Eryn!
P4/5 have been exploring parallel and perpendicular lines. We used a venn diagram to sort pictures of lines in the environment then used a QR code scanner to check our answers.

Catrine ECC was an exhibitor at East Ayrshire’s O Factor, this was a showcase for all the amazing outdoor learning that is happening throughout East Ayrshire.
Jan Wardrop our Outdoor Learning Champion in the ECC was a Nominee for the Excellent Outdoor Practitioner Award. This was for the hard work she has put in to improving and extending Outdoor Learning in the ECC. This was shown in the efforts she put in to the stall she set up for the O Factor exhibition. Practitioners from other centres showed lots of interest and Jan was happy to explain all the things we have been doing.
