The boys and girls of P5/6 will be taking part in the John Muir Award after the Easter holidays but have already begun to get involved! Check out some of our pictures and some more information about the award below.
The John Muir Award is an opportunity for people of all ages to get involved in the great outdoors and to appreciate the natural and wild surroundings on our doorsteps. It will give the pupils of P5/6 a chance to experience the wilderness of local habitats and encourage them to think of ways that we can bring this into the school grounds through a conservation project.
This project will be an ongoing initiative for the boys and girls of P5/6 for the summer term but it is hoped that we can work closely with our nursery children to establish even stronger links, whilst encouraging wildlife and minibeasts into our school environment!
Here are some pictures of a few things that we have done so far, including two activities with the East Lothian Ranger Service (a habitat walk and a river/riverbank investigation) and a visit from the SSPCA to discuss wild animals:
