Dumfries House

Primary 4/5 went along to Dumfries House on Thursday for a chance to learn about the animals and their habitat. The children looked at what they needed to be happy and healthy and compared this with what animals need finding many similarities.

The children then went around the farm feeding the animals whilst learning all about their preferred habitats.

The second half of the day consisteted of pond dipping, creating nests for birds and assisting in building an ant hotel!

The rainy weather certainly didn’t dampen our spirits 🙂

 

Learning judo skills from a commonwealth champion

This morning primary 4/5 had the chance to watch a commonwealth champion in action!

 

Time for the children to show off their judo skills…

The session ended with every child getting thrown to the mat by the judo champion herself!

Great fun had by all 😀

 

ps. No children were harmed in the making of this blog post!

P7 Swimming Gala

Yesterday some of our P7’s participated in a swimming gala at Visions Leisure Centre in Cumnock. They competed against other schools in a variety of events including the butterfly, front crawl, breast stroke and back stroke. All pupils tried their best and enjoyed the morning. They were a credit to the school- well done to all involved!

As part of our book focus on Supertato, the children have made jelly to demonstrate the part of the story when The Evil Pea gets captured and Good wins the battle.  P2/3 have made a variety of wobbly jellys (that was the easy bit) the hard part is having to wait until tomorrow to eat it!

Primary 2/3 had a fun afternoon creating the characters from Supertato.  We have Carrot covered in plasters, Cucumber wrapped in toilet roll, Broccoli drawn all over, The Evil Pea and our star Supertato in his lovely red cape.  The children enjoyed creating our characters and will be using them to create a short film in their groups to recreate the story.  Well done P2/3 your characters have some great details!
