During Health Week , we worked with Simon the Ranger to observe minibeasts that live under our feet. We worked in groups to look for living creatures in leaves collected from outside. We found centipedes and beetles and something that looked like a scorpion. It was great fun.
P1D have been helping to clean up our local Community in Kincorth by taking part in a Litter Pick around the school grounds. We worked together in pairs to use litter pickers to clear all rubbish from all areas of our playground. It helps it to look clean and tidy and be a safe, clean and fun place to be in.
In Kirkhill this week all classes have been taking part in inventor week. For inventor week to be a success pupils needed to use a lot of skills including drawing, writing, reading, problem solving and construction skills as well as their science skills.
Some of the things classes have been inventing include:
Magnet mobile phones
3D car mats
Wall paper designs
Waste paper bins
Rubbish collector for the playground
The children had to work in small groups to design, plan and construct their inventions
Ella, Paige, Dylan and Daniel from P5/6 said “We loved building our invention. It was such good fun!”

Big Me Day
In Kirkhill this week the children have been taking part in Big Me day. The children donated £1 and were allowed to come to school dressed as what they want to be when they grow up. The school raised £160 for ActionAid which will go towards supporting some of the world’s poorest children. The money will help the children get a better education and hopefully a future career.
The best costumes were picked out for a picture that will be shown on the office TV.
The majority of the children came dressed up as footballers, doctors, policemen, builders, vets, gymnasts, dancers, singers and YouTubers.
Carly McIntosh in P7 said “I enjoyed dressing up as a dancer and I liked that it was for a good cause.”
It sounds like everyone had a great day for a great cause. Well done!
