Kirkhill Primary School

Fairground Rides

First we chopped wood into 15 cm pieces. Then we glued them together (but later it broke so we put LOADS of glue on and it worked). Then we cut out right angles and glued them on to hold it together.

The next day we measured out 11 cm pieces and cut the wood, then glued it on so it made a cube shape. We glued the right angles to it. We left them to dry over night.

The next day we got a cardboard circle and a pizza plate and some people got sticks. Other people used other things. Then we made the circuit with a motor and glued the motor to the wood to make it go around.

We decorated it and some people put on sides to cover the circuit.   Then we decorated it with gems and glitter then we put a sign on it.

Food Miles

P5 are learning about food miles in class. We brought in food wrappers and are decorating our board with them. Then we used string and attached it to the food wrapper and the country it came from. Also we labeled the wrappers and wrote how many miles it traveled and which country it came from. By Faith

Culloden Battlefield Trip

Dear Friends,

I have been asked to update our blog so that all of you can see what we have been up to in recent days. It really has been a busy start to the school year and I hope that the pupils can take on this role in the coming months. Meanwhile, here are a few photos from our trip to Culloden Battlefield two weeks ago.

Harvest Celebration

Primary 5 hosted a Harvest Celebration and invited some of the local people for some teas and coffees. All the classes came and gave a performance for the elderly.  Maddie and Ella sang a Gaelic song.  Before the Festival we got people to bake some cakes and,biscuits and provide lots of other goodies for the festival.  At the Harvest Celebration some people received hampers full of goodies, fruit and flowers.  It took a lot of effort to put the Festival together but we did it in the end.

There were children that came too, one baby and a girl and a boy twins . When we spoke, sometimes they did not understand what we said. We had a great time .

Today we practiced tennis. We tried to hit a ball into a hoop to our partner who was on the other side of the hoop. Then our partner hit it back.We also played Prisoner where you get two lives. You have to hit it over the net but keep it in the court while making sure that the people on the other side did not catch your ball. We also played Around the World where you have to hit it to the other side.

Welcome to the Fairground!



Well done to everyone working so hard to make a fairground ride this week. There were some technical challenges and disappointments- but in the end everyone was successful in making a model fairground ride. I managed to get most of you photographed before the bell went, but if your picture is not here today, it will be tomorrow.

Well done everyone!
Mrs Kent
