Our Amazing Second Eco Flag

We have been working really hard to win our Eco Green Flag. We have put in a lot of effort. Some things that we have done is our eco litter pick rota, always picking up rubbish and putting it in the bin, our 3G litter picks, building habitats for animals in our eco garden, tidying the eco garden and the John Muir garden and design competitions for the garden. Through all this hard work we have earned our second green flag!

A huge congratulations to our Eco Committee!


Just a reminder that on Saturday 19th March Earth Hour will be taking place.At 8:30 to 9:30. Everyone has to switch off something electrical in your household to save energy and to make the world a better place. So please try and tell your siblings and  guardians.

Christmas Card Recycle

The eco committee are  going to be recycling Christmas cards. Instead   of putting them in the bin bring them in and we will recycle them. Eco committee will come round in the new term to collect them.

The eco committee wish everyone a Merry Christmas and an eco friendly New Year.

Primary 2’s week


For this week’s homework we have been making musical instruments using recycled materials (Sarah). We are going to form a band with all our instruments. Miss O’Hara is very impressed with them all!

We have been measuring in metres using a metre stick. We were measuring big things such as the Monkey Bars (Harris R), climbing frame (Lilley), the buckets (Robert), the big red door (Ben) and the wall with the stairs (Kristin).

In gym we are working on our fitness (Hayden). We have been working on: relay racing (Ben), hurdle racing (Kristin), jumping and hopping using both feet (Noah).

There was a problem in our village this week and there was too much rubbish all over the village (Heidi). We had to think of ways to clean it up and stop this problem (Hayden). We were thinking of ways to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (Zosia).
