Community Hub

Primary 2/3 and our school Ukulele Group performed their Scottish poems and songs to visitors at the community hub yesterday.  They were fantastic, WELL DONE! Primary 2’s said their poem Mince and Tatties and P3 said Twa Leggit Mice, we all sang ‘Ye Canny Shove Yer Grannie Aff a Bus.’ We had a wonderful performance of Auld Lang Syne with the ukulele club leading on music.  What a fantastic show of talent from the boys and girls at Catrine!

Primary 3/4’s Magic Classroom

Primary 3/4’s Magic Classroom

This week P3/4 have been learning about the different ways we can learn.  We discussed the different types of learners: visual, auditory or kinaesthetic and the pupils completed a quiz to find out what type of learner they are. In order to suit all learning styles we decided to change the classroom into a ‘Magic Classroom’, where the children have the responsibility to choose the place they work best. We have set up different workstations around the class, some with music, quiet areas, beanbags and clipboards, and the children are really enjoying exploring these!

 Our first activity was to climb up a massive mountain that used to be an active volcano. We got very wet… But we all still enjoyed it!!

Today Erin and Gemma got to go and explore the caves under Culzean Castle. The next group will go and do the same thing tomorrow.                       By Ewan ,Max and Martha.
