Caring Carrick Knowe

Today, pupils in Primary 5A and 5B harvested cooking apples grown in school. Our new high school helper Joseph was great at getting the apples from high up.

Sadly, we can’t use all of the apples we have grown so instead, we contacted two of the local care homes, who were very happy to receive them. Doing our bit for the community!

Maureen, the activities co-ordinator at Manor Grange, thought she might get residents to have a go at peeling and chopping the apples before chef Joseph cooks them.

At Murrayside, chef Iain is planning to make apple crumble for residents this weekend, and says they are always interested to know where their food comes from, and will be very pleased it’s from the local school.

Take a dive into P5!

Even though we’re only a few weeks into the year, we’ve already done so much!


We have been exploring different mental maths strategies to solve problems, as well as place value, ordering numbers and decimals fractions…


P5 have been developing their fitness skills and learning about the importance of warming up and cooling down. They have also been trying out touch rugby with Mr Smith!

Interdisciplinary Learning – Our Senses

P5 are learning all about our senses and sensory organs, as well as those living with disabilities such as deafness and blindness. So far, we have been exploring sound and have had fun investigating the properties of sound as an energy! We know that these sound waves can travel through gases (air), liquids (whale song through water) and solids (vibrations along pieces of string!)

Welcome Back P5!

After a long, restful summer, Primary 5 have had a brilliant first week back at school!

Despite all the tired faces on Wednesday, we have all managed to get back into the swing of things.
