Innerwick Early Years Team are delighted and proud to have been selected as a Setting of Innovation and Impact 2018 by The Scottish Government. We are one of six settings in Scotland chosen from more than 70 applications. Staff will work with The Scottish Government’s ELC Quality Team from January 2019 to share their play-based pedagogical approach nationally. Please read and learn about some of the play-based development work and view our submission of evidence to The Scottish Government. Furthermore we also wish to share the Improvement Plan for the coming year 2018-2019.

A busy afternoon in P4/5

P4/5 have had a busy afternoon continuing with our human body topic.

During PE this afternoon, we calculated our heart rate when resting and compared it to our heart rate after doing physical activity. We then described how our pulse rate changed after exercising, and explained why it had changed.

Then it was back to class where we worked collaboratively to plan, script and perform an advert for leading a healthy lifestyle. Simon Cowell even made an appearance to judge some healthy and unhealthy lifestyles!

Scottish SPCA Visit

P1-7 received a visit from the Scottish SPCA this morning. Each class participated in a different workshop, which involved watching videos and playing games. P4/5 discussed the importance of caring for all animals and also learned lots of interesting facts about different animals… Did you know a sea monkey has three eyes?!
