Unfortunately the “link to survey” button in the recent post is not working on some sites. This is the survey URL: Workforce Mobility Project – Young Scot Survey (surveymonkey.co.uk)
The Workforce Mobility Project would like young people to complete a short five minute survey. This is a great opportunity to highlight the transport and digital barriers and challenges which impact you and your families.
This survey is for all young people, and is asking about all forms of transport, from walking, public transport, personal car use and all points in between. It is also important to hear the voices of young people who might otherwise be ignored, such as young people with disabilities, and their experience of transport in the area.

P4 have been developing their learning about Australia by learning about the Aboriginal people. We looked at their beautiful artworks and created our own in the same style. We also listened to some Aboriginal music and looked at their handmade instruments. We had a go at making our own clap sticks using our woodworking skills. We cut our wood to size carefully using a saw, smoothed the wood using sandpaper and then decorated them in a traditional style. Next we have to learn how to play them! Great work P4.
