Dalry Primary is happy to announce that we have been selected as a Dynamic Earth Golden ticket school for this academic year.
This means the school and nursery will be able to take free admission on trips for all of our pupils as well as subsidised travel and free learning workshops.
We are extremely excited by this amazing opportunity.
One of Mrs Honeyman’s favourite parts of her job is having a tea party every Friday with the chosen ‘Pupil of the Week’ from each class. This week the children were chosen by their teachers and peers for good listening, deep thinking, confident speaking, being a good friend to newly arrived pupils, improvements in reading, being responsible and overcoming their fear of water at the swimming pool.
The weekend of September 28th is Doors Open Day across Edinburgh.
Doors open is an amazing event sponsored by the Cockburn Association where buildings normally closed to the public throw open their doors. Many also put on family friendly activities.
This year highlights Dalry families may be interested in include:
Learn about University STEM learning at Edinburgh University Kings buildings. (Flyer linked here.) (best for P6 and P7).
Heriot Watt also have an amazing range of STEM activities on this link.
Find out more about bodies at a museum that is normally only for medical students at the Anatomical Museum (info here)
Lots of our Forest School pupils will have wondered what’s inside the spooky tower on the hill. Now you can go in to find out. Click here for more info
Have a look behind the scenes, literally, at The King’s Theatre. Click here.
One of the best family activities to be had in Edinburgh – Get insdide the bus garage and take a ride through the bus wash, sit in the drivers seats and ride vintage buses from Haymarket for just a normal bus fare. This year they are going big for the centenary of Lothian Buses. On Sunday there will even be a bus parade. Details here.
