Outdoor Learning Down the River

This morning P1-7 walked down to the river to take part in some outdoor learning activities. The children found bugs, insects and flowers and used magnifying glasses to explore them more closely. The children also made some autumn jewellery, had an autumn scavenger hunt and made homes for birds. A fun and adventurous morning was had by all.

School Captains Meet with Mrs Templeton

Our school captains and vice captains met with Mrs Templeton on Friday. The captains and vice captains gathered the views and thoughts from their house groups to share with Mrs Templeton and they worked together to see how they could improve our school. Pupil voice is important at Ballantrae primary and this ties in with the UNCRC(United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child) article 12 – Children have the right to give their opinion freely on issues that affect them. Adults should listen and take children seriously.

Lots of learning in P3/4/5

Primary 3/4/5 have been learning about multiplication and repeated addition. The children have developed their descriptive writing skills by writing about the classroom and outdoor classroom. Group work concentrated on communication and listening skills. Science has been all linked to Space and the children have been developing their skills of working scientifically by gathering/recording information and data and choosing ways to carry out a fair test.
