Recently the Nursery children had great fun exploring the grounds around Oxford Island. They ventured into the forest, hunting for mini beasts and learning about all the wildlife that live there. The children also enjoyed a craft activity and they made their own dragonfly to take home. They ate their lunch together and even managed to have some time to play in the park before heading home!
Primary 1 recently enjoyed a super day at Streamvale Farm! The P1 children have been exploring the topic of the Farm and were very excited to meet the animals they had been learning about at first hand. Take a look through our photo gallery to see all the fun activities and animals we met at Streamvale Farm!

It was great to have Dave Wiggins, our Sustrans Link Officer, in with us today taking our Primary 4 pupils for orienteering. The pupils were placed in groups and had to use a numbered map to find pictures. At the end of this the groups had to use the words of the items they found to label a bike. This was followed up in the classroom with a conversation about bike safety. Click on the 'read more' link below to see the P4s in action.
Dave also popped in with P5W to inform them that with 88%, they were the best class with Active Travel journey's recorded for April. Well done P5W...winners for the second month in a row.
Which class will win the Interclass Active Travel competition for May?
Today in Forest School P4 completed a literacy task, in which they had to use materials to represent fiction, make a fiction story and use describing words for their fictional characters. Children were split into groups and one 'leader' from each group was given a container. The group had to collect a small amount of material which was placed in the container and missed together to make a 'potion.' The children then all gathered together to discuss their potions (what they were called, what they did).
Next, the groups had to decide on a fictional character that lived in the forest. Once they had decided on their character, they had to build a den for the character.
The forest school lesson was concluded with the usual evaluation session.
