P7 Camp Experience – October 2008

You may have seen previously on our blog, that our P7 pupils went to Dounans Residential Centre at the beginning of October.

Whilst there, the children and Miss Lynn took part in a number of fun team activities which included abseilling, hill walking, orienteering and problem solving.

We are sure that you can tell from the photos that they all had a fabulous, albeit a bit wet, time whilst they were there!

They also thought that it was a great way to make new friends as part of their transition to S1 in August 2009.

School Garden

The school recently received a donation for taking part in an Engineering Challenge and it was agreed that some of this would be used to purchase some small trees and shrubs for planting in the vast school garden.

One tree was purchased for each child and they all spent a cold, wintry Friday morning having fun digging holes in the muddy garden and planting their plants!

The garden is starting to look fantastic now and we are all looking forward to the trees and shrubs blossoming and flowering in the months and years to come.

P1/2/3 – Fireworks Display!

Our P1/2/3 class had great fun recently making their fireworks displays, as you will see from the wonderful photos!

They went into the outdoor shelter and had great fun flicking and splashing paint to make one of their fantastic displays which is now brightening up their cloakroom.

They then all worked together in the classroom to draw a wonderful crayon firework picture that they then covered with paint to make it look like a perfect clear fireworks evening!
