Forest Schools in the Snow

It’s been quite an experience out at Carberry over the last couple of weeks with all the snow flurries, sleet and rain and the children have been complete stars and had a great time!
We’ve searched for tracks in the snow, looked for signs of spring, caught snowflakes in our tongues and played games in the woods. Well done Chestnuts and Rowans, you’ve shown real resilience coping with all the weather!

Broader Horizons School Sudan update

We are continuing to support the children and staff of the Broader Horizons school. After the very successful shipment of resources last summer we have continued to raise money with the Rag bag donations since returning to school in August. We had raised just over £200 in December and as Mrs Ali’s Husband Akram was going to visit his family in January he took the donation to present to the school. The head teacher Mrs Iklas was delighted to receive the money. This is equivalent to a months salary for a teacher so it will help support the school further. Akram visited the school on Monday 5th February. He was welcomed by the whole school, children and staff. The pupils put on a show  for him and were singing and dancing for and with him, you will see him on the end of the video (in a navy top, jeans and red trainers) dancing with one of the children. Some photos of the whole event also included. We will continue to support the school through out the rest of the year.

Beech Class trip to Leith Library

Beech class enjoyed a trip to Leith library yesterday!

Our topic at the moment is Scotland, so all of the children looked from Scottish themed books.

We found one about an osprey and an otter which we read together. We learnt that Ospreys make friends by catching fish and giving them to other ospreys!

Primary 7 visit to Pilrig Park

Our primary 7’s enjoyed a trip to Pilrig Park to have burns lunch with their friends there.

They got the number 25 bus there, which was fun!

When they arrived they were very excited to say hello to some pupils who used to attend Prospect Bank

They enjoyed some traditional scottish music, played by the George Watsons pipe and drum band!
