Primary 4 Visit the ? Woodlands

Primary 4 worked with the Woodland Trust today in our woods. We heard the sad news that our woods don’t have a name. We did a variety of activities within them and will now need to come up with some ideas for names. This will then be put onto signs so the whole world knows it.

We created a map of our woodland, using only materials we found there. We created poems about some of the trees and we made our very own cocktail perfumes.

Magical adventures in the woods for P5

Primary 5 children thoroughly enjoyed their recent visit to Bellsquarry Wood. The Woodland Trust kindly arranged for the Rowan Tree Theatre Company to meet and take them on a magical, enchanting walk through the woods where they met characters such as Huffy Bodger, Glitz Noskin, Mina Miyoko and Berta Bogdal. This highly creative adventure saw the children investigate their environment, sing, dance and even eat and drink in their surroundings on this cold but sunny day. Feedback from one child as simply “The best trip I have ever been on” sums up the enthusiasm on the day.


All the boys and girls have been celebrating the 25th anniversary of the UNCRC. We have been exploring the ‘Brightest Right in our Lives’ and presenting it in a variety of ways. We have been discussing why the UNCRC is so important. The Rights Respecting Schools group are looking forward to creating a beautiful display to showcase our work. Keep an eye out for us on Pinterest – watch this space!

Miss Hao visits P7!

It has been an exciting morning in P7! We are very lucky to have Miss Hao working with us on our cluster transition topic, Chinese New Year. We have enjoyed learning about the Chinese language, especially how to pronounce our names correctly. It is very interesting to learn about the different dialects and the 56 multi-cultures within China. We are looking forward to progressing with this and showcasing what we have been learning at our launch in February.

Nursery has a braw time exploring Scotland

We have been exploring lots of Scottish themed activities this week. Children have been busy building castles with our large waffle blocks in the outdoor area. We have also been weaving lost of beautiful creations on our fence. Highland cows, thistles and kilts have been created at the art table along with junk model castles.
We have danced to bagpipe music and played along with our own drums. Mrs Stewart was regularly spotted beating the drums in our music area!
We continue to enjoy investigating the letters in our names and have been practising our writing and also searching for letters in the water tray.

It has also been ‘Book Week’. We have listened to 3 stories that are on the book trust shortlist: Princess Penelope and the Runaway Kitten; Robot Rumpas and Lost for Words. We voted ‘Robot Rumpas’ as our favourite!
