Sports Day

It will come as no surprise to hear that we have to postpone the P4-7 Sports Day.  A future date will be confirmed later today.

A decision about the P1-3 Sports Day will be made at 1100.  The forecast is for it to dry up.

A busy time outdoors!

Primary 2s have been very busy outdoors this week! On Tuesday we travelled up to Sandness, with Primary 2n, to Transition Turriefield where we got to see lots of different plants and vegtables growing.   We also got to see ducks, ducklings and horses! We then planted some mixed salad and handled worms! We had a great day all round!

Today we were very excited to release our butterflies in Mrs Evans’s garden! We thought it would be a good idea to place them on flowers, so that there is nectar ready for them! We have had great fun watching our caterpillars go through their lifecycle these past few weeks.


Primary 5 coding

As part of our ICT lessons over the last few weeks, some of the P5 pupils kindly agreed to share their knowledge on coding using a programme Scratch with both Primary 5 classes.

They started each session by doing some direct teaching using the interactive whiteboards in the classroom.  The pupils then used the ICT suite where they have been responsible for their own group of pupils to help them learn how to code their own computer programme.

All the pupils have been really engaged and love using Scratch and it has been excellent to see the children sharing their own knowledge and skills with their peers and taking ownership over their learning.
