Kirkhill Primary School

Primary One this week!

We have been exploring Science, Technology, Expressive arts and Music this week!

We solved a problem by designing and creating bridges and boats for animals trapped by a flood.

We have created coil pots from clay and have been thinking about how technology has changed.

We discovered lots of new information at the P6 Science Fair.

We explored rhythm and rhyme with Miss Kennedy.

We used a sewing machine to create bags for our Winter Cones that we are going to sell tomorrow.

We worked as a team to produce a finished product ready for the fayre.

Next Week

Next week we will be taking part in Technology Week and Miss Kennedy, Mr Welsh and I have lots of exciting activities planned! We were hoping you might be able to help us with a few resources. Please bring in empty milk cartons and small cardboard boxes for a design project.

We are also making something festive to sell at the Christmas Fayre next Saturday. Would anyone like to dehydrate some orange slices for us?! We will be doing some in class together but back up would be gratefully received!! This would be a great video to watch together, see if your child can verbally explain the stages to you as you watch it.

Book Bug Bag – did anyone go home with 2 this week?!

Icy decorations!

Bramble Berry has been a little confused about the strange white stuff that is sticking to the grass, trees and and bird table outside our window. We told her about how water changes to ice when it gets really cold and we even discovered what we call the number before 0! Can you remember?

We are making some icy decorations to hang outside our classroom, we know they will only work if it’s another night of minus temperatures. Fingers crossed for another freezing night! Maybe you could make your own before you go to bed tonight?

A Special Visitor in our class!

Today we discovered a new member of the P1 team… Can you tell someone at home who this is?


Bramble Berry came with a little note explaining that she had heard about an amazing little team in Kirkhill who visit woods every week and know lots about the trees and animals. Apparently this team are very kind and helpful too… We suddenly realised that Bramble Berry was looking for us! She wants to learn more about the changing seasons on planet Earth and we have agreed to try to help her!

We all drew pictures of where we thing Bramble Berry has come from and then some of us wrote her notes and letters with question marks on them. I think we want to find out more about this mysterious elf!
