Spring Detectives

Primary One have been thinking about the seasons again and how they change our environment. We took advantage of a lovely sunny afternoon to become Spring detectives. What do Spring detectives do ? Well, as Thomas put it, they ” look for clues to tell us it’s spring”. We looked all around our school grounds to find evidence that Spring is here and found that the trees were changing, there were lots of colourful plants to see and that if we listened, we could hear lovely bird song.

Once we had drawn pictures of the things that we had found, we used these spring colours to make our Easter egg ornaments and cards.

Lions and Tigers and Bears – oh my !

Primary one and two had a fabulous day out to finish off the term and their ‘Carnival of the Animals’ Topic – to Blair Drummond Safari Park. It was a busy day – a tour around the park, then a workshop explaining some of the features of mammals, reptiles and birds. After that, we had a closer look at some of these amazing animals. Everyone was buzzing with excitement throughout the day!
