A part of outdoor learning the morning nursery children visited the Lanthorn woods and they had the opportunity to investigate and explore a specific area. They enjoyed going on a bear hunt and even found slugs home. The children even managed to find the number 7 post which was hiding in amongst the bushes.
P1/2 and P1 enjoyed some time out in the playground together this afternoon and worked on their sharing and co-operation skills to work together in small groups to build a den. This was our first time using the den building equipment and the children all worked together to problem solve and build dens that they could sit inside. Take a look at us in action!
Last week P1/2 enjoyed an exciting eco week. On Monday, we learned all about worms! We had Joanne visit us with her wormery. We found out that worms are good at recycling and they even make compost. We enjoyed working in groups to create the life cycle of a caterpillar before our trip to see ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ later in the week.
We also learnt about the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and even designed some new bag ideas for ASDA!
On Thursday, we went to see the performance of ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and it was amazing! Mrs Lloyd was very impressed and we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip and represented Bankton Primary really well!
On Friday, we performed our P1 assembly to our families and spoke with confidence and with our big loud, clear voices. We shared lots of our learning that we have done this year and look forward to telling the nursery children and their parents about this on Wednesday!
Primary One have had an exciting week learning about how to help save the environment. One Monday, we learnt all about worms! We found out that worms are good at recycling and they make compost. On Monday afternoon, we worked in groups to create the life cycle of a caterpillar in preparation for our trip to see ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. Miss Rodford thought that we did a great job!

On Thursday, we went to see the performance of ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and it was amazing! We loved the puppets and we sat so well to watch it!
On Friday, we performed our P1 assembly to our families and we showed off all our super learning that we have done this year!
As part of Eco Week the nursery children have been learning about recycling from Joanne. She brought her large wormery in to the nursery and the children had the opportunity to hold a worm if they wanted to or just look at them. She spoke to them about how the worms helped to make compost which helps our plants to grow. A child even tried to keep a worm as Joanne left.
The nursery children were lucky today to join in with the school children in their Shake and Wake session with Miss Dyet. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this activity and some children even managed to get up to the front of the stage.
The nursery children were then all active during their outdoor classroom visit around the local pond. We were lucky enough to have an extra healthy snack donated from Morrisons.
This week the nursery children have been focusing on personal safety through the story of Hanzel & Gretel. This story was introduced to the children by following a trail of pebbles to the story which they enjoyed listening to. The children enjoyed listening to the story through different version on the iPad. On our outdoor classroom we left a trail of breadcrumbs for our friends to find their way back to the nursery.
Although some ducks started eating them as we dropped them.
