Camp Photos

Here are photos of some of the fantastic adventures from this week – enjoy!

 

Camp Update 22.3.17 9.30am

Most of the campers had a better sleep last night – we tired them out! An impressive third shower for some then breakfast and a Happy Birthday to Huw.  Packing presented a challenge – how on earth did Mum fit it all in and just how do you get a sleeping bag in its bag?

Final activities before lunch and home-scavenger hunt in the sleet and fencing. School will text out estimated time of arrival. See you all soon- get the washing machine prepared for action!

Camp update 21.3.17 1pm

After a surprisingly quiet night, the campers were up and about early. More showering plus room tidying-teachers remain impressed!

Activities so far have been low ropes and blind trail. Weather is dry but very cold. On the pond this afternoon for canoes and kayaks.

Sorry no photos although we’ve taken lots. The wifi here is very restrictive. They will all be uploaded once we’re back.

 

 

Camp!

After an uneventful journey P6/7 arrived safely at Lockerbie. They have already had the chance to abseil and go on a zip wire! All now in bed – well nearly- Mrs Hamilton and Mrs Berry very surprised by the arguments over who went in the shower first. Hopefully lights out by 10…!

P3/4/5 Museum Trip

We had a wonderful day at the Museum of Scotland on Monday. The children showed fantastic manners and behaviour and took great interest in learning all they could from the experience.

After a look at some of the galleries they were able to handle a variety of roman artefacts.  We then had a very interesting talk about the roman army from one of its Centurions!

P3/4/5 Meet the Romans

The class have been very busy discovering lots of interesting things about Romans and their lives.

We have been focusing on note-taking in reading and the children have been using these skills while investigating the Romans.

So far they have taken notes on Roman Gods and made posters which included making a mosaic of the God.  They are now working in small groups to investigate Roman slaves, gladiators or soldiers and will present their information however they choose (within reason!).  There are already some very exciting ideas happening. Watch this space for the results.

P3/4/5 News

The class have continued to use the theme of George’s Marvellous Medicine to help their leaning.  They were given a challenge to draw characters from the story using standards units of measure.  We had some very small and tall Grandmas and a chicken with very long legs!
