Muir Award with P5/6 and P6

During the lockdown in Term 4 this year, pupils from the then P5 and P5/4 (now P5/6 and P6) at Dalry Primary School (and their families) worked towards their John Muir Discovery Award.

A range of activities was suggested within each week’s learning grid and pupils’ work was sent to teachers on Twitter.  We found out about the life of John Muir, we walked sections of the John Muir way, we created Nature Art and we completed activities in the Mission: Explore booklet from the John Muir Trust.

To help conserve our environment we created bird feeders and bug hotels, and we contributed to surveys on pollinators and wildflowers. 

Despite the challenges of completing the Award during a lockdown, we were delighted to receive certificates for 31 pupils and parents.  Well done to everybody!

Building Resilience August 2020

For those families who have been at Dalry for a while you will know the building resilience programme well as we completed our first three year cycle in the summer.

We will now go back to the start of the programme with the first unit Be Resilient, which will give the older students a chance to revisit these ideas now they have grown and changed.

The Be Resilient parent and carer topic leaflet is available on this link.

For new families there is more info on the be resilient section of the website accessed above or via this link.
