Today the children from P5/6 and P2/3 walked to Artigarvan Park for the morning.  We had great fun playing football, parachute games, skipping and playing on the apparatus.  We even had a visit from the ice-cream van before we made our way back to school.

We are so fortunate to have had a visit in school from an award-winning author, Stuart Reid. He shared snippets from his latest series of books- 'The Gorgeous George' series. The parts that he shared with us were hilarious, they also included alliteration which has inspired some of the children to include this in their writing more often. Stuart shared stories behind the inspiration for his writing, including a story about a panda from Edinburgh Zoo, these were shared to us with hilarious video clips as Stuart read poems and storied from his books.


Have a look at his website below for more information about his books and writing.

This week the Nursery children have commenced their induction programme.  They are very excited about starting P1 in September. This can be a very daunting experience for both the children and their parents so this year we have devised a new programme.  We hope it makes the transition in September a little easier for all.  Here was the first step: our visit to the canteen for lunch.  It was very successful and the children really enjoyed it.

As part of our Explorer's topic this term, year 5/6 have been doing lots of work around volcanoes.  In science, we carried out an experiment to investigate which liquid would help us to create the biggest 'explosion' to replicate a volcano erupting.  We found out that vinegar mixed with baking soda created the biggest reaction, then orange juice and finally coke had the smallest reaction.  We then went on to make our own volcanoes using salt dough and painted them.  Finally we erupted our volcanoes using what we had learnt in science.  Have a look!
