P2 weather reports 🕶🌂🌍❄️☀️🌧🌩🌈🌪💧💦☔️⛅️🌤❄️

P2 have been learning all about the weather. We learned about weather scientists called meteorologists who study the weather and predict what it will be like. This is called a weather forecast. We enjoyed making our own weather station and presenting the weather on our very own ‘Catrine News’.

 

Have a a look at one of our meteorologists, Kiara, in action.

Sportshall Athletics

Well done to all of the Primary 6 and 7 pupils who represented Catrine Primary at the Sportshall Athletics today. The pupils competed in track and field events and faced tough competition from Logan, New Cumnock and Park School. Catrine finished in 3rd place overall.  All pupils worked extremely hard and were a credit to the school, great work Team Catrine!

Digital Schools Award

Miss Burleigh and Mrs Govans were delighted to be invited to Falkirk to be presented with Catrine PS’s Digital Learning Award certification.

Five ECCs, over 40 primary schools and 12 secondary schools from all over Scotland were awarded their Digital Schools accreditations and Catrine PS are proud to be included in the list of educational establishments that are including digital learning in their daily teaching environment.

Miss Burleigh and the Digital Learning Committee will now be working towards Catrine PS being presented with the CR-IS accreditation, focusing on Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety for primary school pupils.

Catrine ECC will be looking to start their journey towards Digital Learning accreditation throughout this session.

 

 

Whiteflat Big Art

For our Outdoor Learning Day we did Big Art.  We had to go around the school collecting items that we could use to help us create our big pictures.

We used bits and pieces from the gym hall, resource room, classes as well as some natural materials.

We split into two groups and decided what our theme was for our pictures. Group 1 chose a beach scene and group 2 chose the circus.

After we completed our pictures we went upstairs to the classroom window to look out and get the full effect.

We think they looked great.
