It’s been a busy week at Arduthie Primary as Commonwealth Games Mascot Clyde visted last week as did Benny and Jack.
The school was awarded a Game on Scotland Plaque last Wednesday when Clyde dropped in.
The plaque was for showing a strong commitment towards the Glasgow 2014 commonwealth games by creating valuable learning experiences and opportunities for the children.
During the year, pupils have engaged in a number of experiences to highlight the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games including a sports day, attending a small games workshop for upper stages to develop leadership skills and entering the Athlete’s Art Village Compettion.
Game on Scotland is the official education programme of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and its legacy.
It aims to provide inspiration and learning and teaching opportunities related to Glasgow 2014 and other momentous events happening throughout Scotland in the coming years.
Miss Munro, the physical education specialist at Arduthie Primary, commented: “We are very proud to receive the Game on Scotland Plaque in recognition of all the hard work of pupils and staff.
“The visit by Clyde , Benny and Jack was very exciting and greatly enjoyed by all.”
Pupils from Arduthie were also touching the hot surface of the sun as the nursery children learned all about the earth and the moon this week.
Generation Science, a touring programme of science shows and workshops delivered by the Edinburgh International Science Festival, visited the school last Friday.
The pupils joined Benny and Jack on a journey of discovery, learning about what other children around the world get up to.
The show had some catchy songs with some energetic and enthusiastic storytelling about the sun, the earth and the moon.
Joan Davidson, Generation Science manager, said: “Science is a practical subject and our team works hard to provide support to busy teachers and also get pupils enthused by it.”
Sandra McIntosh ,of Generation Science sponsors Total, added: “The Generation Science team will again bring fun, passion and enthusiasm to the classroom and we hope that this will inspire many pupils to embrace science.”
