Dug is a little white dog who usually lives at Education Scotland. He is travelling all over Scotland visiting different ELCs and today he arrived in Kingsland! He explored the playroom. He liked playing in the water area! We are going to do some planting in ELC so we made a list and Dug visited Harbro to buy the plants. We will help him learn about what plants need to grow.
You can find out what Dug has been up to over on his own website- click here to visit Dug’s Discovery Den
We are having lots of rainy and blustery weather this week! In ELC we learn to put on our own coats to keep us warm and cosy when playing outdoors. Here is Mrs Martin to show you her amazing magic trick that makes putting on your coat easy peasy! Give it a go at home!
The RSPB is an organisation that helps protect birds and the places that they live, their “habitats”.
From the 29 – 31 January the RSPB organise an event called the Big Garden Birdwatch. People all over the country are asked to enjoy an hour watching nature and count the birds that they see in their garden, local park or from their balcony. Once people have counted the birds that they see they submit their findings online at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch. This information is used to help monitor which birds are doing well and which birds need some help. It helps the RSPB plan what next steps we all need to take to help protect birds and their habitats.
Why not get involved with your family?If you would like to take part you can simply register online and you can download an identification chart. Primary 1 could use their bird spotter guide form their Book Bug bag.
Here is Mrs Collins from Primary One to tell you more:
