P1 and P2 beach trip

On Tuesday 24th June the P1 & 2 pupils had a fantastic school trip to Nairn Beach.

Even though the sun didn’t shine the pupils, staff and parent helpers really enjoyed the experience. Travelling by train was such an exciting adventure and the walks to and from the stations weren’t too long. The pupils were very fortunate as they just had to carry themselves….the buckets, spades, changes or clothing, lunches & snacks were transported straight from the school & back, with the kind help of Mr McMillan.

The pupils were greeted when they arrived, by Philip, the Town Crier (Bellman) who formally invited them to Nairn Beach and Play Parks.

There was lots of fun had on the beach…building castles, digging massive holes which were filled up with water by pupils who had buckets and even though the paddling pool wasn’t open we still managed to get wet feet! Great fun! A few pupils had a go at writing their names in the sand. Pupils experienced two different types of Play Parks …. where they had a go of a variety of types of Play equipment. Many of the pupils enjoyed an ice cream…yum yum! See some photos attached. Lots of exhilarated though exhausted children ….and adults ….by the end of the day!

P1 show and tell

The Primary 1 Pupils love to share and talk about their personal items from home.

As a special end of session activity we are going to have a class Show and Tell on Monday 1st July.

We usually encourage pupils to leave their personal items at home but as a one off the pupils may bring one item to share with the class.

They can talk in front of their peers about what they have brought in and they can then answer questions that the pupils or class teacher may have about their item.

The item can be a toy, a teddy, something they like i.e. something precious and interesting to them. Please do not allow them to bring anything valuable.

Please remember to bring along hats and water bottles too.

We hope you are able to join us.

Thank you.
