Connecting Classrooms in P5-7

Primary 5-7 enjoyed a special day on Tuesday where, as part of our connecting classrooms project, we met on zoom with the pupils and staff of Pragnya Bodhini, Mumbai. During this meet, pupils recited their Burns poem, shared their knowledge of their topic – life on land- and enjoyed a fun and interactive quiz. Well done everyone!

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.

ICT Lunchtime Club

Riley and George started their ICT lunchtime club today and it was a great success! Pupils played games on Cool Maths Games and Scratch. Next week Riley and George are organising a Scratch tournament during their lunchtime club. Keep up the good work Riley and George!

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.
