This week at the institute we were making quiche. This was a new experience for most of us, including Mrs Schendel! We had to prepare our pastry, chop our fillings and whisk the eggs. Of course we always wash our hands before we handle and eat food!
Thank you to all the adults who came to our numeracy open morning this morning. The children really enjoyed showing what they have been learning in class through Active Maths activities and Lucy, Ryan and Calvin impressed us all with their demonstrations of Number Talks strategies.
What a fantastic night we had last night at our very first Catrine Primary School Ceilidh! Thank you to all who came along and joined in with the dances or encouraged from the side lines. It was amazing to see all ages laughing and having a great time dancing to our live band and our choir did us proud and sang beautifully.
See you all next year!
The children have enjoyed setting up a café in our greenspace this week in our mud kitchen, thank you to all the parents/guardians who kindly donated utensils.
Primary 6 pupils fought off the midges to have a fantastic night camping in the grounds of the school.
The pupils and staff took part in lots of activities to improve our school grounds, such as planting, making bird feeders and looking at bugs in our environment. They enjoyed hot dogs and soup as well as toasting marshmallows round a campfire. Everyone enjoyed a very competitive game of rounders followed by a yoga story before heading to their tents. It was very exciting to be sleeping out with friends and there was lots of giggling coming from the tents.
We managed a little sleep before waking up with the birds and enjoying some breakfast before packing up camp and heading home.
A huge thank you to Lorna and Caroline and all of the team at LOST for giving us this amazing experience.
We were so lucky that the sun shone for our Sports Day last week! What a fantastic morning. Well done to all the children (and adults!) who took part. Once again our pupils impressed us with their sportsmanship, encouragement and determination. Well done everyone!
What a fantastic turn out for our numeracy open morning yesterday! It was wonderful to see so many parents, grandparents and other family members. The children (and staff) really enjoyed showing off all the great work they have been doing in maths. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend for your continued support.
P4/5 went outside to find parallel and perpendicular lines in the structures around the playground.
Here is what we found:
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.
Fun time Friday at Catrine Primary

Primary 2/3 had lots of fun last week getting all dressed up for Halloween! We also enjoyed making some spooky haunted house art in class. We think they look great!
P2/3 had a wonderful day at New Lanark. We were taken back in time to experience what life would have been like as a child working in the mill. We then got to find out more about schooling and living conditions. We couldn’t believe how many people lived in one room! Or where people used to do the toilet!
We then enjoyed lunch and were amazed by the Annie McLeod experience. We finished off our day outside at the play park. What a great day 👍🏻😀
Primary 6/7 were very excited during their trip to New Lanark. They first enjoyed exploring the school house and how life was for the school children at the mill. Next we had lunch and after that we went on the Annie McLeod experience ride. It took us on a virtual journey through the life and work of Annie. Finally we went on a guided tour, where we were all told many interesting facts about the life and times of Robert Owen the mill owner.
P2/3 had lots of fun at the Cevic Centre this morning. The sun was shining and we learned lots about the different parts of a flower and even got to plant our own seeds!
This week, primary 2/3 enjoyed learning about Scottish artist Steven Brown. We used strips of tissue paper to create work inspired by his famous ‘McCoo’
We think they look great!
East Ayrshire Park Rangers From Dean Country Park gifted the school their very first plum tree. P5/6 were excited to help plant it.
