Pam Watson visit

October 8, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on Pam Watson visit

Pam came in to teach UNA pupils how to provide gentle exercise to music for elderly people.  This is to support an event that UNA children will run after the holidays. The children were taught about the needs and abilities of the people they would be working with.  Music, warm up, main sessions and cool down was explained.  The children were able to understand the measures they needed to incorporate in order to keep their elderly members safe during exercise.  They fully understood the need for exercises that support independence in the elderly.  The children will learn about International Day for Older Persons and run this event.  Rotary members will escort elderly members from the Forres area by bus to join us on Thursday 31st October for our active event.

Mr Morgan gave the UNA business group some daffodil and crocus bulbs to plant in the local community.  We planted them last week and Mrs Blair will take 2 UNA members to Grant park to plant more crocus bulbs. UNA will learn about the End Polio Now project and be active in supporting this after the holidays.

International Day of Peace 2019

September 20, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on International Day of Peace 2019

Today was a great success!  Once again, the children were able to deliver an important message, this time about International Day of Peace.  Each business group was involved in learning to say ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ in a range of languages, sang our unique Alves Primary Rights Respecting song, learnt a Peace Dance, made a climate action banner and an atmosphere blanket with the support of community members. We had perfect weather for the Peace Day ceremony this afternoon. A special thank you to all parents and guests who came along to support us today.

P4/5 Earthtime

August 28, 2019 by gw19savillealasdair@glow

P4/5 had a fantastic afternoon at Earthtime ……. from zip line building to mud kitchen and mad face painting, searching for bugs and building forts to developing practical skills such as using a saw and jewellery and clay model making.

We even managed to fit in a chat about ours rights to be safe I the forest school environment and the precautions taken to keep us safe outdoors.

The children (and I) had an amazing time and a fantastic learning experience. Thank you Earthtime.

Mr Saville (P4/5)
