Jackie from the SSPCA visited us as part of our ‘Living Things’ context. We all heard about the important work the SSPCA do in our community, P1-3 heard the story of how Polly the pigeon and was rescued and P4-7 played snakes and ladders while answering questions testing their knowledge of animals. Jackie was delighted to take away the bedding and towels donated by families and staff. The donations will be used in the animal centre. A very worthwhile, informative visit helping towards us being responsible citizens and effective contributors.
P1-3 fun, engaging Art lesson – balloon printing and pipe cleaner weaving. Caterpillars may have turned into centipedes.
At a recent Assembly we were visited by representatives from Royal Tarlair Golf Club and Home Energy Scotland. They were delivering the energy efficiency message and promoting the SCARF calendar. They were delighted to meet a real life SCARF calendar competition winner! For taking part in this work with them they awarded the school £250 which will be handed over to the Parent Council to go towards the Playground improvement funds.
As part of their topic work for Term 1 on Our Planet, the whole school took part in K’next workshops on Wind Power, Solar Power and making recycling robots.
