Balmedie Beach Trip

Primary 1 had a super visit to Blamedie Beach on Thursday the 7th November. We met with the primary 5s from Balmedie School who shared some of their learning with us at the Beach Bothy. They sang us a song which they had written & recorded to CD for selling. It was fantastic. They then took us to the beach to build sandcastles, dig for treasure and hunt for shells. We also managed time for a wee play in the park. Thank you to Mrs Duncan and the Primary 5s for looking after us and making it such a fun visit.
