P3 have been enjoying further weekly trips to explore the world outside through our forest schools programme.
The highlights of their recent sessions are below.
‘We all enjoyed building shelters this week. We had to work well as a team and when we were finished we were rewarded with hot chocolate!’
‘We made a fire this week. Everyone had to help gather wood of different sizes. Once the fire was lit we had marshmallows- yummy!’
‘Had lots of fun exploring the forest and kept warm with a game of follow the leader. We all made journey stick to remind us of the adventures that we have had.’
‘Our last session was great fun. As it was Halloween, we made a giant spider’s web and everyone had to try to cross it without getting stuck! We all made tree spirits to say goodbye to the forest.’
Dalry Primary School first team won Best P6/7 Intermediate Level Team at the Lothian Junior Chess Team Tournament on the 4th of November.

Dalry Primary entered a P5 and under Team for the first time they did really well and enjoyed their first tournament.
Earlier in the year two Dalry pupils, Ilamaran and Rishon received medals for winning matches at the October chess taster sessions.
The lower school (P1A, B and C, P2A and B, and P3) Halloween party will take place on Tuesday 30th of October from 5.30-6.30PM
Entry cost is £2 payable in class.
It was great to have so many helpers today, it meant that we were able to explore even further into the forest. Some boys and girls went on a mushroom hunt, while others enjoyed using the binoculars to look for birds. The children worked well in small groups to play a blindfold game.
The pupil’s had great fun exploring the forest. They made stick men pictures which we showed to the Primary 1 pupils who had been enjoying Julia Donaldson’s Stickman story in class.
We all got a good work out when we tried to make butter last week. Our first attempt with single cream failed but we tried again with double cream and were delighted with the results!
The children shook cream in a bottle, after a while we noticed that the sound it made and texture had changed. When we opened the bottle we discovered that we had made butter and buttermilk.
