P7 Survival Camp 2018

What a fantastic weekend we had at the first EVER Dolphin House camp!

We…… pitched, sawed, sparked, cooked, ate, drank, gathered, walked, feared, chatted, slept, washed, canoed, escaped, shared and cleared…..ALL OUTDOORS!

Our experience was loads of fun but also had a serious side.  Throughout the event we reflected on the life of refugees in a different type of camp! We had 2 activities that were very refugee focused.  They were called FEAR and ESCAPE.  If you want to know more then please ask us!


Peace Garden – Fisherton Church

Today we started work on the peace garden at Fisherton church.  We loved mapping out the shape using our maths skills.  We also loved naming all the worms we found!

We hope this will be a peaceful and tranquil place for all to visit.  Watch this space for updated pictures!
We also chatted to Rev. Stirling about our refugee crisis project and are looking forward to talking to his colleague who works as a missionary with Syrian refugees. 

Graffiti Project 2018

In a primary school not far from here, there was a playground wall that needed sprucing up….Tosh to the rescue!!

What the kids said:

It was fun to do the background because you got to do whatever you wanted.  When we did the blue background it made it really stand out.  I liked being part of it because I love graffiti to look at.  I feel proud of myself and glad I got to do this project.

I think the wall is a great thing and I feel really happy I got to do it.  The wall looks a lot better than it did before.  If we could I wish Tosh would come back again to help us do the other wall.

It was really fun and I wish he could come back again.  I liked doing the background and it was fun when we got to do whatever we want all over the place.  It fun being in a little group because we usually do things as a class or the whole school.  I liked being part of a little group instead.  It was just brilliant in general.


Our project was topped off with a visit to Shred skate park in Ayr.
