On Friday 23rd September, our Junior Carsonians, Oscar and Lewis, certainly “did us proud” when they manned the JC Stand at the Twinning Climate Change Event– one of the events held to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Inchture Area Twinning Association’s links with Fleac, France. Many accolades, both in French and English, were awarded to them for their knowledge on the subject, friendly disposition and confident presentation.
On Friday 13th September, Primary 4-7 visited Barry’s Wood to learn more about the local environment and conservation issues.
Barry Caudwell spoke to the children about native and alien trees and plants before pupils foraged for material to use in their own Andy Goldsworthy inspired transient artwork. Journey and Syllable Poems were also composed by pupils.
On Thursday 12th September, the whole school went on a trip to Perth Museum and the Fair Maid’s House Visitor and Education Centre.
Pupils learned about native and “alien invader” wildlife, including the plight of the Scottish red squirrel and British bees. Pupils explored native food chains and discovered more about population growth, extinction and various factors (such as diseases) that are endangering our wildlife and natural environment.
