On Friday we began a four week block with a focus on outdoor learning! Primary 1A and Primary 1B took to the garden where we went on a senses scavenger hunt. We had to hunt for things that felt smooth, things that had a nice smell, and things of different colours and shapes. We had a lovely time and we were even able to find a giant snail, which we have named Sammy! We took Sammy into the classroom in our magnifier so we could have a good look at him before setting him free.

We are looking forward to getting back outdoors this Friday too!

P5/6 Victorian/HWB Open Afternoon

Thank you to everyone who came along to share in some inter generational learning and fun this afternoon. We have been learning about the Victorians this term and yesterday we were learning about D-Day so as part of our open afternoon we :

*Created war medals to show our empathy and gratitude for the sacrifices that the Veterans of D-Day gave for us.

*Shared some family fun in exploring a range of Victorian games and toys which helped us to think about how lucky we are to have the right to play and rest, something Victorian children were not entitled to.

*Worked together to develop our digital and problem solving skills in order to complete a QR Code Quiz. Completing the quiz helped us to learn a bit more about the impact that victorians and the industrial revolution had on life as it is today.

*Tried Mrs Prentice’s home cooked gruel which helped us to empathise with the Children and families who would have had to eat something similar in workhouses and factories.

*Took the opportunity to have a mindful moment and be inspired by the artwork of William Morris to create our own prints and patterns.

*Tested our patience and perseverence learning how to create the popular string problem, “cats cradle”. This was something that was very popular in the Victorian times as it was inexpensive and helped children to develop concentration and problem solving skills.

P 7 Learning Outdoors and Open Afternoon 7.6.19

We played a game “Fox and Squirrel” followed by drawing mazes.

It was lovely to welcome friends and family today. We showed some Loch Insh photos, our Animal Me quiz and our Chromebook Loch Insh reflections. Our Rose Bowl projects were on show too. Thank you to everyone who suppprted this event.

We enjoyed a visit from Mr Turner and Ms Douglas yesterday. They are guidance staff from the IRA. We were given helpful answers to our questions.

P6/7 – Open Afternoon

This term P6/7 were asked what they would like to do to celebrate the last open afternoon of this session. they had the fantastic idea of a parents versus teachers rounders game to match the theme of health and well being,

Thank you so much to all the parents who managed to join us in what was a fun afternoon; it was great to see both parents/carers and pupils so involved and being really good sports. Bonus that the sun made a much overdue appearance for the event. Thank you!

P6/7 – Outdoor Learning

Today P6/7 took their learning outdoors. We used things that we found in our playground to create pictures. In groups we scavenged for materials and used these to creative a unique picture. Take a look below; from a lion to Donald Trump!

We will be doing an outdoor learning activity every Friday until the end of term. Keep your eyes peeled for our next activity.

D Day

This afternoon we learned a little bit about the D Day landings. Tomorrow afternoon we are going to be designing our own medals ? in memory of all those affected . 

P1/2 Healthy Feet
