Earlier this week our P7s went to visit the Sky Academy to find out how a news report is put together. They had the opportunity of putting their creative and collaborative skills into action to produce an information report about the damage plastics are doing to our oceans and what we can do to help this.
We all had great fun at Dumfries House. We took part in a range of workshops and worked with the rangers to find out about trees and plants. We also got to explore the play area too!
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 – a beetle with sharp pincers. I look forward to reading about the day in their school blog soon.
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.

Last week Primaries 4, 5 and 6 went to the Glasgow City Halls to enjoy the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra perform the 10 Pieces Concert. The event was hosted by Barney Harwood from Blue Peter, helped out by Hacker and Dodge. Some of the pupils commented: “I liked how they told stories through music,” and “I’ve never been to anything like this before!” You can find out more about the 10 Pieces by clicking here.
Primary 4 also visited the Maritime Museum in Irvine and found out more about the Titanic and what it was like for the ship builders and their families.
