The Mystery Suitcase

Learning Wall

P1/2 have set up a learning wall in their classroom. We are looking forward to opening the mystery suitcases and finding out about the past. What we learn and how we learn it will be added to the wall as we progress. Have a look at our key questions to help you to make up your mystery suitcase with your child. Feel free to pop in and see what we’ve been finding out.

P1/2 Orienteering

Children in P1/2 enjoyed an orienteering session with Martin Pegg from Outdoor Education on Thursday afternoon. He brought special orienteering equipment for them to use. Children worked with a partner and needed to use their map reading skills again to locate stations around the school grounds. Electronic “keys” recorded their routes and times. The winning team visited all eight stations in the correct order and took 2 minutes and 56 seconds.

Fit Lab visits school

This week we had a visit from Ross and Callum who brought “Fit Lab” from the Glasgow Science Centre. This consisted of a variety of different hands-on activities which measured various strengths of our body. They measured reaction time, balance, grip strength, memory, flexibility, arm strength and mind control. We all enjoyed putting our bodies to the test and were amazed how well we did. Thank you for your visit. “We loved it!”
