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!

Yesterday we had special visitors from the NSPCC. They introduced us to their friendly speech bubble friend Buddy! He told us all about things that are NOT OK that we can talk to a trusted adult about. He also told us about Childline. A organisation what we can phone if we need to talk to someone about something that is bothering or worrying us.
We had fun at playtime exploring the garden which was covered in FROST!
The introduction of transient art at lunchtimes in the playground has proved very popular. The children have been using a variety of natural materials to create pictures and patterns.
A big thank you to Mrs Campbell for all her hard work getting all the materials ready for us to play!
The children have been very busy in the playground using all our open ended resources. They have been creating marble runs with the pipe guttering, imaginative play with the small wendy house and dressing up clothes.

“We want to hear views from those with a formal role in our education system and those with a stake in its success. In particular we want to hear from children, parents, teachers and communities about how they can be empowered to have a stronger voice and play a leading role in driving improvement in education for all children and young people.”
