Stirling Trip

Yesterday P4/5/6/7 visited Stirling Castle and the Heritage Centre at Bannockburn. At the castle we took the Wars of Independence tour to tie in with our topic, Wallace and Bruce. We were very lucky with the weather as it didn’t rain! After lunch we got to meet a knight and try on lots of medieval clothes. Some of us were even put in stocks! We had such a busy and exciting day that some of us had to sleep on the bus home!

     

Eco Update

Firstly, the Eco Committe would like to thank everyone who helped clean up Saltoun on Friday. Everyone worked very hard and Saltoun looked even tidier than normal by the time we had finished. This event will contribute to the waste minimisation part of our Green flag award.

     

The Eco Committe have recently visited Humbie primary to have a look around their school. They already have their green flag so we thought it would be good to ask them for some advice. We learned lots and have put forward our ideas to Mrs Malcolm for next terms Eco work. These included having toilet hippos and clothes recycling bins.

    

Caroline Samuel has been helping us to grow vegetables in the school. We are growing carrots, peas and lettuce. On Tuesday we planted our potatoes…..hopefully we will be able to eat some of our vegetables soon!

      

Saltoun’s Spring Clean!!

On Friday the 24th April Saltoun is having a spring clean. We would advise all pupils to wear their school uniform when they come in, but bring old clothes especially old shoes. If any of the community would like to help us that would be great! The meeting place is Saltoun Primary School (playground) at 11am.
