Team Work!

Look at this amazing photo! We played a team game yesterday where we had to work in a team, use strategies, follow rules and use our ball skills. This is the first time that we have played a full game of something like this and it was incredible to watch! We have been looking out for Primary Two Clues that show us we are ready for P2, I think this has to be one of them! 🙂

Match the Miles!

The results are in… Kirkhill Primary School managed to match 357 miles last week! It didn’t quite take us to the border but our effort has been rewarded with a visit from Lee Craigie tomorrow and she is bringing along signed copies of her journal, ‘Joining the Dots. Highland Trail 550’ which is full of inspiration and great images of adventure.

Well done everyone!

Dolls house furniture and figures needed!

Does anyone have any dolls house furniture or figures that they no longer want or need? Or maybe we could borrow them for a few weeks? We have a new little house in the classroom and lots of people have been playing with it, so far it has two sofas and a wardrobe and I just noticed that a lot of animals have moved in…

Learning about Fire!

We had a fantastic morning in the woods today learning all about fire! We learned how to start and maintain a fire, how to be safe around a fire and how to toast marshmallows to perfection!

We were joined by Lorna, who is an Early Years Practitioner at Summerlings Outdoor Nursery, as part of the Developing the Young Workforce Week we are taking part in at school. Lorna told us about what it is like to be outside helping children to learn all day and she shared her fire starting knowledge with us too! As you can see she did a great job and the fire burned well for our whole session. The teams used their knife skills to sharpen the perfect toasting stick, they listened to stories about the different trees in the forest and they all had a go at using a fire steel to create sparks to ignite a small fire. It was a great morning and we even dodged the rain showers!

What a trustworthy, confident and responsible team we are! 🙂
