In May we had a wonderful week of Health and Wellbeing focused-activities including Bouncy castle, Whole School Run, Cycling, Eat Well Plate, Rugby, Skipping, Zumba, Parachute, Kick boxing, Teeth and a Drug Game. The weather was kind and pupils from Nursery-P7 had a brilliant week to allow the focus on health and wellbeing which delivered across the school in an ongoing manner to be highlighted at a time when children and families are preparing for the summer break. Thanks to Mrs Riddell for the planning, management and organisation of this yet again.
P6 pupils took part in the Social Enterprise by creating and selling Fruit Sorbet raising funds for developing education in third world country. The activity followed on from the P4’s Taste of Scotland and their Coffee Morning and the P2- P7 Christmas Cake sale which started the ball rolling for Social Enterprise. We intend to continue to develop this next session with more classes and more pupils getting involved in a variety of pupil-led activities and events.
Today the whole school took part in an Enterprise afternoon. Parents were invited to come into the school and to see what the children had made.The planning began a few weeks ago when each class had to decide what they could make and then sell. Once they had decided they had to collect together the resources and equipment to make their chosen products. Some of the classes wrote to local businesses to see if a business would donate what they needed. Other classes bought the resources locally or through specialist catalogues.
The school bustled with activity throughout the afternoon. Most of the classes were able to sell all their products during the afternoon. The children enjoyed meeting new people and using their selling skills to make a successful sale.
P5 worked with the Whale and Dolphin Society from the WDCS Centre in Spey Bay. They did a series of activities including looking for dolphins in Moray Firth, looking life-size shapes of dolphins to understand their size and taking part in some wide games.
Today the Olympic flame came to visit Kinloss Primary School.. Abi O’Grady came with her torch, which she had carried on the torch relay. She ran with the flame in Grantown. The children could hold the torch and learn about what it was like to carry it from Abi. It was a very interesting visit.
Here are some pictures of a recent trip to Abernethy by the P6 and & P7children. Before they went away only two children could ski. By the end of the week every child could ski. All the children had a great time.
