Primary 5 have been very busy over the last week, working towards our John Muir award. On Thursday we went out to explore different areas in our local community with Sam the Ranger. We had a great experience and the weather was perfect.
We learned lots of new information and skills like how to measure a tree and what different types of trees look like. We also learned that litter is a major issue in the field next to our school. At the river, we looked for living creatures using nets. We loved it and we learned how to be really safe.
Our next trip out will be to conserve the park and field area and the area at the river.
Please do let us know what you think of our learning as it will help us to achieve our award.
Primary 4 had their own election today. The children were split into parties and had to convince the rest of the class that they should run the country! Provisional polls have revealed a win for SNP but with a surprisingly good result for the Conservatives. The ballots will be counted tonight and final results revealed at the end of the day.
Update – A surprise victory for the Labour Party, although without a majority so they may need to form a coalition with the SNP or Green Party!
