Today it was the 2014 Leavers Ceremony! It was a lovely celebration with songs they have been learning throughout the year for the children moving up to P1 and the children who are moving on to another school. Miss McKinnon presented the children with their certificates after going through the arch. Not a dry eye in the school playground!

We have been having an active week at Nursery learning all about the football world Cup. We have been learning about what countries are taking part, making our own little footballers for mini football in the Nursery and planned our own World Cup day at Nursery.

Nursery is looking to build up their outdoor clothing store and we are short on wellies sizes 12,13 and 1. So if you are having a clear out of wellies in particular we would be delighted if you could hand them in to Nursery. Many Thanks.
This morning we were lucky enough to take a walk around the village and down to the burn with Diana Simcock, a resident in the village who helped us to learn more about our local bees. We learned so much, saw so much and had the greatest time. Diana joined us back in class to show us pictures and answer all of our questions. We would like to say a huge thank you for a fab morning.
It’s time for putting out the woodwork bench at Nursery and we are looking for wood off-cuts to replenish our stock. So if you have any odds bits of wood that you are looking to dispose of, we would be delighted if you could hand them in to us at Nursery.

We had such a wonderful time at Yellowcraigs today too. Primary 1/2 began with a look around the shore, we enjoyed finding lots of different things that live and have lived on the beach and in the sea. We worked in pairs to create marvellous minibeasts using sand and all of the other loose materials that we could find. Before we visited the woods we had a great time climbing and swinging at the play park – adults and children! Once in the woods we found beetles, spiders, slugs, ants and many other crawly creatures. Our trip finished with a making memories frame activity using sticks, once we’d made our frames we snapped away taking all of the pictures we wanted to remember and talk about next week.
Lily – I thought that it was really fun climbing up the big climbing frame.
Hannah – It was fun being at Yellowcraig. I enjoyed making the bugs.
Ruby – I really liked climbing up the big climbing frame too.
Amy – I thought that it was really exciting because we didn’t know what we were going to do and it was a big surprise. I also liked making the bugs with Hannah.
Charlotte – It was an adventure.
Robyn – It was cool because I found a rock with some metal in, where the little stream was running by.
Zoe – It was really fun on the beach and when we made the creatures.
Eva – I enjoyed looking at the bugs that people had created and I enjoyed showing people mine.
Thanks from us too to our parent helpers – we had the best time and hope you enjoyed things too.
Today even though it was raining Nursery still had a lovely time down at Yellowcraigs. We visited the woods where we took part in activites then moved down to the beach. We spent time drawing on the wet sand and collected shell, stones and seaweed to make pictures. We still had time to play at the park! Thank you very much for our parent helpers, trips like this cannot happen without your help so it is greatly appreciated:)
