 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.

P3/4’s Introduction to Scotland Theme


This afternoon Primary 3/4 have been making a 3D Mind Map all about Scotland. We looked at different Scottish items and discussed what we already know and what we would like to learn through this topic. The children took photos and videos to record and share their learning. The children are hoping to find out about famous Scots, Scottish landmarks and places, traditional food and clothing and the Scots language, including Robert Burns. We have began to learn our Scots poems, which have been sent home to share with you.

If the children have any items at home which would be relevant to our topic, please feel free to allow your child to bring in and discuss these with the class.

Many thanks, Mrs Ferguson

First Day at Dolphin House

“Our first day was a blast” By Ewan

“It was so much fun!” By Martha

First of all we gathered in the main hall to talk about some rules and boundaries, then we got split into groups of 6 with one instructor each. All of us did different activities such as, climbing walls, walks around Culzean and much more! Last all of us made a campfire and toasted marshmallows…. It was great fun! We’re really excited for the activities ahead tomorrow!

New Year, New Term!

School and ECC starts back on Monday 9th January.  We look forward to welcoming new children to our ECC and wishing Primary 7 a fantastic time at Dolphin house, their residential trip.


We are hoping the children and Mrs Schendel will update our blog while they are away.

As the new term in the New Year begins we look forward to working in partnership with parents.

Christmas Sewing

Thank you to all the parents who came into help us sew, your help is always appreciated!  The children received a letter from Santa which acknowledged all their hard work, they later worked their stockings off sewing like little elves in the Primary 2/3 workshop.  The children enjoyed making their stockings and hung them up by the fireplace waiting for them to be filled.

Christmas Time

Here are some more festive snaps of Primary 2/3 as they took part in the Nativity.  There are also some pictures of the primary 3s looking fantastic for their Christmas Party!  Primary 1 and 2 shared their learning as they created Christmas Jumpers using materials.  The children were keen to peer assist and help each other to create fantastic designs.

Primary 1 and 2 Party

Primary 1 and 2 had a fantastic time at their Christmas Party, we even had a special visitor! The children had a great time dancing and playing games getting into the festive spirit.

P6/7 Info Handling Outdoor Learning

Last week P6/7 completed outdoor activities related to information handling. One group measured the height of trees in the playground (using a very interesting method!), then created line graphs to display the height of different trees. The second group gathered objects they found in the playground and made a tally table to show the amount of each item.

All pupils had fun, whilst developing skills in measuring accurately, gathering data and presenting data in a clear and visual way. These outdoor activities allowed us to transfer our skills and apply our learning in class to a different environment.
