The Man Who Planted Trees

On Wednesday 15th January we invited Jan Dunlop our local forest ranger to join the whole school to watch and listen to the story of The Man who Planted Trees.
Afterwards we had some discussion about the importance of trees to us all, our environment and the climate change issue.
Inspired by the story we then planted the tree seeds and nuts that we had collected from our local area.

This week the children have written about how and why they want to plant and grow more trees.
This was part of the Woodland Trust Green Tree Schools Award.

Christmas Show 2019

Puss in Boots

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Christmas Show yesterday afternoon, we certainly had a full house!

The children started the afternoon off with musical pieces they have been practising with Beccy including Twinkle Twinkle Little star in English, Gaelic and French!

They then gave a wonderful entertaining performance of Puss in Boots with beautiful singing throughout, all that hard work and practising paid off as it was a huge success.

 

Refreshments and raffle were followed by games and a visit from Santa, what a lovely festive afternoon.

Woodland Trust Bronze Award

The children have worked hard and had a lot of fun this year doing challenges for the Woodland Trust Green Trees Award and we are very happy to have achieved the Bronze Award. Their challenges have ranged from planting trees on Ulva, a Woodland Workshop, to creating a Tree Champion and recyling.

 

We have recently completed a Tree Dressing Challenge where the children researched  the traditions of tree dressing and then dedided they would like to dress a tree in the school garden, they chose a young birch tree and made christmas wishes for the tree that they wrote onto ribbons and tied to the tree.

The children wanted to include the birds in the tree dressing so we made fat balls and turned them into garlands and baubles to decorate the tree. We had great fun and are looking forward to seeing what birds will come and feast on the decorations.

Making the fat balls was rather messy!

We are hoping that having completed this challenge that we will have enough points to get our silver award.
