P5P Nature Detectives

Over the past few weeks P5P have been exploring the Scots language. They have been learning some interesting new words to add to their vocabulary. Pupils created an A-Z of Scots words and sayings. Dae ye ken?

We have also began our new context as ‘Nature Detectives’ and are excited to be completing the John Muir Award! P5 recently made popcorn bird feeders and have been learning about different animal groups.

As John Muir was the founder of National Parks we were inspired to create our very own ‘Mini National Parks’ in our school playground. Each group created a mini park with its own name and attractions. Thanks to the snow we even had some ski slopes and snowy mountain ranges.
