Whole School Litter Pick

Primary one were being responsible rhinos today and took to the school grounds to litter pick. We were disappointed to find that we filled two small bags and we discussed how we could encourage our school community to throw their litter in the bin, recycle more and use less plastic. 

Art- Stained Glass Window Creations

Inspired by our visit to Craigiebuckler Church Primary one created stained glass window masterpieces this week. The children used tissue paper, black card and a laminating pouch to create a realistic stained glass window effect. We are quite proud of our work!



We have been making the most of the lovely weather today taking our maths outdoors. We used hoops, chalk and a variety of resources to create symmetrical pictures and patterns. Ask your child to talk about the pictures below. Perhaps you could have a go at home?
