Primary 6 went kick sampling in the Distillery Burn. We collected mayfly larvae, a stonefly and some caseless and cased caddis fly. Then we made an aquarium. We are hoping they will hatch.
Just a reminder that you can access internet safety materials through the Internet Safety page of our blog.
The Eco Group visited Evanton Woods with Dingwall Academy Forest School. We gathered different size twigs for the fire. Mrs Boardman even managed to light the fire! Then we built shelters. After all that we had some delicious soup. We had a brilliant day and would like to say a huge thank you to Miss Swallow, Simon and the Forest Schools Group.
Me and my mum Kelly are doing the 5 X 50K challenge and it’s the second year in a row. We’ve done 320km each so that means we have done 640km altogether! My mum and my family and friends are extremely, very, very proud! I’m actually very proud of myself. I am very fit now and I’m not going to stop and me and my mum aren’t going to stop running, jogging, walking and cycling!!! By Katie F P5
As a school, we are also extremely proud of Katie. Not only is Katie managing to run a very long way but she is raising money for our school Literacy Fund. Well done, Katie and Kelly!!
