They will be travelling  by coach. Pupils must bring a packed lunch (it was too late for the kitchen to provide packed lunches), a water bottle and bring a full PE kit with sessions being held outdoors.

Rainforest Rescue

Mirin in P2 has raised an amazing £417.50 by doing a sponsored cycle. Here is the information from her ‘ Just Giving’ page. Outstanding, Mirin, Well done!

I am nearly 7 years old and have been doing a topic at school about the rainforest. I learned that the rainforest has a forest floor, understory, canopy and emergent layers and is really important for keeping the worlds air clean.

I was sad because people are cutting all the trees down to make money because they want to be rich.

I asked my dad how I could stop people cutting down the rainforest and we decided on a sponsored bike ride because I love cycling. I will be training hard before my big cycle on Sunday 25th May.

Please give any donation you can and I will give all the money to the World Wildlife Foundation to help protect the rainforest.

Thank you very much

Primary 2b

As part of our Katie Morag topic, we have been learning about island life. We now know that an island is an area of land surrounded by water so we used a Globe and Atlas to find different islands around the world. We also looked at Scotland and shared our ideas about how different life is in a city, like Glasgow, to a Scottish Island, like the Isle of Coll (or the Isle of Struay where Katie Morag lives).



In Numeracy we have been practising our addition to 10 and addition to 20 using active partner activities such as ‘Silent Maths’ and ‘Guess My Hidden Number’. We have also been exploring teen numbers by adding 10 to a single digit number.


Primary 2d

In Primary Two we have been learning to add up to twenty. We worked in small groups and used our cubes to explore the story of 11 and 12.


During our PE lessons we have been improving our fitness. We have been working at different stations with different activities to help us do this. We have been bouncing and catching the basketball, doing star jumps, jumping over obstacles and running.



Do you think we look like good atheletes?
