P6 had a fantastic day today finding out about biodiversity at Culzean Country Park. Highlights of the day included pond dipping,  Daniel enjoyed examining the skulls of the animals and Hattie caught one of the predators in the pond Рa beetle with sharp pincers. I look forward to reading about the day in their school blog soon.

The Big Splash! 2017

Thank-you to all parents who came along on Monday to see the pupils work and learning from ‘The Big Splash!‘ fortnight. All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the learning experiences and had insights into the different careers and jobs available in the local area connected with the sea. Pupils were given the opportunity to consider the skills they would need for the many different jobs. A selection of photos from the different experiences is in the gallery below and please look at the class blogs for further information about the event.
