Kirkhill Primary School

Intergenerational learning in P1!

We were out exploring the community again today! This morning we went along to the coffee morning at the church and met some of the older (and younger!) members of our community. This was a great opportunity to ask questions and listen for information. We were hoping to learn more about Kirkhill’s history and ask some questions about what school had been like in the past. It was lovely to meet so many new people but we also realised that it can be quite tricky to start conversations with people that we don’t know. Everyone gave it a go and showed such confidence and respect. We invited everyone to join the school harvest festival next Monday and we even gave them a sneak preview of our combine harvester song!

Thank you to Scott, the new minister, who allowed us to come along during his very first week in Kirkhill and thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome.

Do you remember some of the ages of the people you met today?

Can you remember what Scott told us about the bell?

What skills were we practicing today?

    Logan had a great time today.
    He said he was talking to Sarah and she was 90 years old. They were talking about his Eco Committee badge.

    It was so good to have the children of P1 join us at our Tuesday coffee morning.
    We all enjoyed the singing and we were impressed by how the children conducted themselves,
    always remembering their manners.
    Hope to see you all again vey soon.

    Mary.

      Thank you so much Mary! P1 loved visiting you all and singing the harvest song. (The chocolate biscuits were also a hit…) It would be great to create more opportunities for us to learn from each other.
