P6 John Muir Award

Primary 6 pupils attained their John Muir Award, gaining accreditation across the Autumn term during Forest School programme. Pupils drew a picture of their outdoor paradise and shared things which would spoil that special place for them. Top of the list was LITTER.  Pupils visited the beach and carried out a mini beach clean, Supported by Surfers against Sewage and removed almost 9kg of rubbish! This was sorted into recyclables and general waste back at school. As a reward for their hard work Primary 6 learned the science of the fire triangle- oxygen, fuel and heat- the rules of outdoor fire safety, and the policy of ‘leave no trace’. They then made Smores as a tasty treat. Pupils worked in teams to build mini National Parks on the beach form natural materials and presented their creations; explaining all of the features included to the rest of the group.
